School of Frock: Golden Globes special
It was couture candy galore at this year's Golden Globe Awards, but only one woman managed to be my repeat red carpet awards season winner, says Jeanmarie Tan.
Gown: Atelier Versace
Clutch: Jimmy Choo
Yep, that's the sound of my jaw landing on the floor.
Hudson knows how to steal a red carpet without actually being nominated for anything (read: she pulled the same feat at last year's Oscars) or starring in a relevant movie in years.
She wins again by looking insanely hot in this sultry yet sophisticated white halter gown with deep plunge and sparkly sheer side panels that give her one of the best hourglass silhouettes EVER.
Gown: Armani Prive
There were ladies in red aplenty, but none did the popular hue more justice than Girls starlet Williams. This delicious beaded tiered masterpiece looks good enough to eat.
Gown: Monique Lhuillier
Kendrick hasn't worn anything remotely interesting since, like, forever. Playing Cinderella in Into The Woods must've forced her to up her game because this enchanting fairytale blush tulle frock with ruby beading is "princess" personified. All she's missing is a tiara and a prince.
Gown: Giambattista Valli
Clutch: Judith Leiber
Don't you just want to take a watering can to Nyong'o's chest?
Last year's awards season star manages to keep up sartorial standards and I love the overall effect of the rich purple of the floral bodice fading into the chiffon skirt. Too bad her fuller 'fro ages her about 10 years.
Gown: Vera Wang
Five weeks after popping out her second child, Pike must be suffering from post-natal delusions if she thinks she can rock this unforgiving dress.
Why would anyone want her post-baby boobs to appear droopier than they are in such low-hanging cups?
Don't even get me started on her exposed fleshy waist! Want to do cut-outs? Wait till you've achieved Kate Hudson's body, then we'll talk.
LANA DEL REY
Two words: Drunk bridesmaid. Security, please escort this one out!
WHO WORE IT BETTER?
In a sea of gowns, these two rebels dared to be different by donning pants - with opposite outcomes. Stone sizzles in a Lanvin jumpsuit with silver sequin bustier and attached bow-tied train, while Lorde's gamble didn't pay off. Her poorly-tailored Narciso Rodriguez ensemble is depressing from the waist down. The fit of those baggy bottoms is almost comical yet sad at the same time. You're 18, live a little!
Blame it on the hormones.
Ever since the chic fashionista announced her pregnancy, she's been letting it all go.
Her fussy white Chanel butterfly print outfit for the Globes isn't my favourite, and that oversized butterfly on her wrist is overkill.
But it's a major improvement from the dishevelled hair and shapeless Hermes yellow tent from the day before.
Maternity wear is obviously not her thing. Well, give it six more months and we can all get back to our regular programming.

The dashing Golden Globe winner for Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Miniseries, or Motion Picture Made for Television is my top gent amid classic black tuxes. At least there's added character and flair in this blue Ralph Lauren Black Label suit.
