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 wore her over the top signature look.

Jennifer is beautiful. She has a great figure. She looked beautiful in her dress.

I have to agree that I felt Beyonce over did it. Her dress was basically distracting for such an event. She could have looked stunning without exposing that much skin. She has plenty of opportunities to be photographed..Watching the pre- Globe shows she was one of the few people left on the Red Carpet- just walking around posing and posing- and some of the poses were a bit hooker- like. She was in almost every clip on T.V. those last few minutes before the Globes came on. Don’t get me wrong- she is beautiful- talented- but to me she has to be the one standing out and recieving all the attention. Do you think she might be insecure?

I think its time for beyonce to let the whole glitter, sequine thing go. She’s been wearing those glam outfits since she came out. I hope with 07 somebody tell her its okay to wear regular material. sometime less is better damn she tryin to blind you with everything she put on and jennifer look like she took scraps out of metal

Beyonce looked like a goldfish
and Jennifer’s dress….
i dont know why she picked that one,
she could do a better job

I hope Beyonce’s rapper boyfriend didn’t talk her into wearing this dress. I agree “what’s with the pose?” she looks like a hooker on the street corner. Come on Beyonce this is the GOLDEN GLOBES show some class and dress accordingly and learn how to pose on the red carpet,your peeers will respect you more and take you more seriously as a actress.

Beyonce looks like her dress is cutting off her air supply,
and Jenifer looks like she took the wrong fashion advice.

jaz on

Kristy on

I think Beyonce’s dress looked great on her… HOWEVER, I feel that it was inappropriate for the occasion and she looked out of place. Something a bit more classy was in order.
