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?

Did anyone else see on the E channel when Beyonce was walking the red carpet? She was stopping to pose like that and in other ridiculous ways the whole way down. It was hysterical. I know this isn’t her first red carpet, I don’t know why she was doing this.

how is this dress too reveling? it has a dip in the front.. that’s all. It’s not like you can see her nipples or anything.

Okay…prob. not my all-time favorite Beyonce dress. But that girl can work absolutely anything and if anyone can make that dress look good, it’s her. She’s the epitome of a glamour girl, and although this isn’t my taste, it works for her and her style. Jennifer? Too medieval for me…..she needs a new stylist.

Totally agree with Alice. Why the hell was she posing like that?? She looked ridiculous and I also thought the dress looked trashy, totally inappropriate for this award show.

Beyonce is over exposed. She should take a time out.

OK, JUST BECAUSE YOUMAY HAVE A GOD BODY DOESN’T MEAN YOU HAVE TO FLAUNT YOUR STUFF. I WOULD HAVE EXPECTED SOMETHING A LITTLE MORE CLASSY FROM BEYONCE. YOU CAN HAVE A GREAT BODY AND NOT SHOW EVERYTHING YOU HAVE.

JENN, CUTE BUT SHE REALLY SHOULD HAVE ADDED SOME COLOR TO IT.

Beyonce’s dress and pose was classless…if that is a word.

They both looked like they belonged on a street corner and not an awards ceremony along with Vanessa Williams and Cameron Diaz. What were they thinking???

Ok, I see where Beyonce was going with this; she wanted to highlight her bronze complexion with some shimmer and show off her curves in yet another sexy fish tail dress (a silhouette she dons so much, only actual fish wear it more). But somewhere along the way things went terribly wrong and what could have been fabulous became felonious. This look — complete with “a horse somewhere is missing his tail” joke-inspiring weave — is just too over the top…and down the other side for that matter. As for Miss Love Hewitt…her frock looks like a shower cutatin that should be hanging above Master P’s 24 karat gold claw foot tub.

Jennifer’s dress does really look like a shower curtain and I think it looks hideous. As for Beyonce I don’t see anything wrong with this dress. After all it is the Golden Globes-you are expected to wear something golden, so if you win, the statue goes with your dress. I’m glad she wore an Elie Saab gown as I was hoping. I don’t like the pose either, but you were the ones that said she always has the same pose, when the dress she wore on TRL was discussed.
