You Tell Us: Are Beyonce & Jennifer Bests or Worsts?

01/16/2007 at 04:35 PM ET

Let’s chalk this one up to beauty being in the eye-of-the beholder. During the Golden Globes, the concensus here at StyleWatch was that head-to-toe gold sequins ended up looking more showgirl than Dreamgirl on nominee Beyonce Knowles, while Jennifer Love Hewitt looked oddly matronly in her gilded ballgown. Others, like our favorite style guru Tim Gunn, thought they were among the evening’s standouts. Maybe it’s just us, but we prefer just a little bit of sparkle, like the splashes of beading on Jennifer Garner‘s white gown to the elaborate trim on Jennifer Lopez‘s Marchesa gown rather than an all-out golden gown.

What about you: Do you like the all-metallic look? Would you vote Best or Worst for Beyonce and Jennifer?

Beyonce has just gone for her signature style and I don’t think it’s terrible although it’s not terrific either. She’s gone in what she enjoys wearing so good on her.
As for Jennifer Love Hewitt it’s a little too much gold but there were worst outfits worn on the night.

I thought Beyonce’s dress was horribly tacky and what was with the poses she was doing? I almost felt embarrassed for her, she looked so silly.
I must of missed seeing Jennifer last night, but from this pic, her dress looks just as bad.

They definately weren’t the bests. But they don’t look hideous. Hideous are previous year dresses of Bjork, Cher, etc. Those were hideous. These are just not as pretty as some of the other choices of the evening.

I don’t know what’s up with Beyonce but Jennifer looks beautiful

Beyonces’ body is so amazing that the dress really stood out. Even if she looked the best some women would still say she didn’t. The woman is beautiful and she is wearing the heck out of that dress.

Beyonce looked like a hooker. This is an awards show, not a Vegas act. It was trashy, vulgar and completely inappropriate for this type of event. Spare me the comments about her great body. In case you were looking, there were a lot of fabulous bodies there and somehow they managed to look classy and elegant and show off their figures without being an embarrassment. Her poses were so ridiculous that I was laughing out loud. It was pathetic. My advice to Beyonce – get a decent stylist if you expect to be taken seriously and, you just aren’t all that, girl!

Jennifer Love Hewitt just does not know how to dress. She comes up with something hideous for every awards show. If there was a hall of shame for terrible red carpet outfits, she would be near the top of the list. The dress is overwhelming, too much material, she is lost in it and it makes her look heavy. She always does this, I don’t know why, but maybe a new stylist would help or someone who would be honest with her for once.

These two were among the worst of the evening.

Beyonce looked like a hooker or a Vegas showgirl. Someone should have told her that this is an awards show. The dress was trashy, cheap and vulgar. If she expects to be taken seriously she needs to learn how to dress appropriately for a red carpet event. As for the comments about how great her body looks, give me a break. This is Hollywood, there were a lot of great bodies last night. But those women managed to look classy and elegant and still show off their figures. Beyonce’s poses were so ridiculous and self-conscious that I laughed out loud. Girl, trust me, you ain’t all that. Get a stylist and learn how to dress if you want to be a true star.

Jennifer Love Hewitt never manages to dress well for these events. This dress has way too much material and she is lost in it. It makes her look heavy and it even makes her look older. She always finds some unflattering, disaster of an outfit to wear. She should be in the hall of fame for bad outfits for red carpet events. Someone needs to tell her the honest truth for once.

These two were among the worst of the night.
