Happy Golden Globes, Mr. President

Overall, I was surprised how fussy most of the dresses were at last night’s Golden Globes. In these difficult times, I thought the looks would veer toward sleek and simple. Boy, was I wrong! Instead, ladies brought out the triple arsenal of glitter, bling and big hair.

I had two actual wince moments. Here is the first: Drew Barrymore. I didn’t hate the John Galliano dress per se, but I did not like the overall Marilyn Monroe sexpot look. It felt far too literal, too stale, and too heavy handed. Can’t you just *smell* all the Aqua Net?
