The Golden Globes were back this year in a big way, and some of our favorite young stars joined their elder celebrity statesmen and -women for the festivities. From the Jonas Brothers to the “High School Musical” cast, the pop stars, small-screen beauties and blockbuster sweethearts were out in full force. So how did these fresh faces fare on the red carpet? Here is our opinion. (Click on the names for photos to refresh your memory.)
Blake Lively: Thumbs down. The “Gossip Girl” star is usually a hit on the red carpet, but this one was certainly a miss. The dress itself is beautiful, but it didn’t seem to fit her and the color of the dress did not match her skin tone. Also, she could have done something with her hair. It seems this is the only style she is comfortable going for. Next time, take a risk, Blake!
The Jonas Brothers: Nick Jonas: Thumbs down. Velvet jacket, no tie — you should know better. It’s the Golden Globes! Kevin Jonas: Thumbs up. Never can go wrong with a classic tux. Joe Jonas: Thumbs up. The red shirt underneath his suit was a good choice.
Miley Cyrus: Thumbs down. Even though it was age-appropriate, the dress was boring. She should have worn something with a little more color.
Vanessa Hudgens: Thumbs up and down. Big thumbs up for the dress, which fit her perfectly and was a great color for her. Thumbs down on her hair, which was a little too messy for this dress. She could have glammed it up a little bit more. But in her defense, the messy hair was the trend for the night. Right, Eva Mendes and Drew Barrymore?
Zac Efron: Thumbs up! Zac clearly knows how to dress on the red carpet. A simple suit with a skinny tie always seems to work for him.
Megan Fox: Thumbs up. The gold was a nice change for Megan Fox who we usually see in a lot of bright colors. The dress fit her beautifully and I loved those earrings.
Beyoncé: Thumbs up!! Beyoncé looked positively stunning in her gown as she and Jay-Z made a rare red-carpet appearance together. Yet, I’m not sure if too many people were looking at that dress, her necklace of diamonds definitely stole the show.
America Ferrera: It was all wrong. The dress was not flattering on her at all and not something that should be worn to the Golden Globes, or for any award show.
Hayden Panettiere: Hayden always seems to know what to wear on the red carpet. In this purple number, she was definitely my choice for best dressed of the night!
That is just my opinion. I want to know what you think. Let us know which pop star you thought looked the best and worst on this year’s Golden Globes red carpet.
