On the whole, this was a good year for beauty looks at the Golden Globes. But as always, there were misfires. Since the head-scratchers are always more fun, let's start with those.
Debra Messing: Girl needs to lighten up on the kohl eyeliner.
Drew Barrymore: Holding hands with her new girl crush Jessica Lange, she was as charming as ever. However, even she couldn't pull off the retro combo of blue eye shadow and hairstyle from "The Last Sitting" of Marilyn Monroe.
Anne Hathaway: While I think that her amazing porcelain complexion makes Anne a poster child for the benefits of a sun umbrella...would a little blush have been so hard?
Maggie Gyllenhaal: No one can wear a red lip better than Maggie. And with her hair up, we were reminded that she's got the best cheekbones in town.
Marisa Tomei: In spite of her Seventies sartorial vibe, she looked ageless. I loved her wavy hair gently pulled back, and if she's done anything to her face, I want the number of her doctor.
Evan Rachel Wood: The last time I saw a photo I saw of her, she appeared to have taken a few too many beauty tips from Marilyn Manson. But last night, with that gorgeous red hair set in a bun with just enough height at the crown, she looked, frankly, charming.
Sigourney Weaver: Absolutely loved Sigorney's cut. Very Sally Hershberger.
And a final note: There is way too much body shine going on in Hollywood. From J. Lo to Eva Mendez to Kate Winslet, nary was there a clean, bare clavicle or shoulder blade to be seen. Not everything needs to look like a Mert & Marcus shoot, guys.
