Red Carpet Trendwatch: White Gowns

01/16/2007 at 01:40 PM ET

Forget Madison Avenue — last night’s Golden Globes red carpet took its fashion cues from ancient Greece by the look of things. From Jennifer Garner’s silver spangled Gucci to Hayden Panettiere’s Monique Lhuillier gold-belted gown, the stars looked like goddesses in their long white gowns with metallic accents. Or there were those who went for clean but never simple white, like Salma Hayek, Azzaro-clad Kate Winslet or Ellen Pompeo in futuristic Versace. We expect to see a lot more ivory, creams, and just bright white with the SAGs less than two weeks away! Tell us: Do you like the white gowns? Is this a look you would wear?

Jennfier Garner looked to skinny for the white dress and it made her head look huge.She should stick to dark colors if she is going to look fashionable because she usually dresses far from it!

Its about time People commented on Selma Hyak’s dress. She looked beautiful. When she walked across the stage and the camera cut to the audience, Men were in awe as they watched her glide to the podium. While Jennifer Affleck looked great, she looked like the same safe girl next door that she always has. She is replacing Jennifer Aniston as far as being the hot actress wife of a hot leading Hollywood man. Next- Beyonce. She looked a mess. Can we say trying too hard. Now Beyonce would have looked fabulous in Drew’s gown, or even something like Jessica Biel had on. She still doesnt quite understand the difference between hip hop couture and Hollywood classy. Ok im done for now, wanna read more, log in later to hear what I have to say about the Globes. The real- non Time Warner tained version of who wore what…and what went wrong .Jayda

Oh yeah on a parting note…What was up with Vanessa? Why doesnt people talk about what the Black actresses wore. Jada Pinkett Smith looked FANTASTIC. Forest Whitaker’s Wife Keisha Beautiful….whats up wit that PEOPLE?

i thought jennifer garner looked horrible along with Salma…Ellen looked best if I had to pick out of the 3!
Angelina looks like she has lost weight or something?

Angeline Jolie has a contract with St. John which states that all her red carpet dresses must come from them.

These women were beauitiful, but the styles of these dresses were not. I like the white but not any of the actual design or proportions.

Sasha on

Ellen’s dress looks trashy, I like the others.

Rio on

Yes.. They all look awesome. Especially
Salma Hayek, Talk about Real Woman Have Curves!! VaVaVoom!

Salma Hayek’s dress did not compliment her figure,, I know she is petite but this dress made her look like she’s put on a few pounds. She still looked lovely though,, Jennifer Garner looked slim and trim in her gown-nice.

Dd on

the puzzle piece is in support of Autism!

Whatever on

To me Angelina was the top. Nobody is -although beautiful- like her. She does not need to appear low-cut to attract looks. This woman looked like a Goddess. Even Brad was somehow opaqued by her presence, even though she was trying to give him the credit. They both were kind of serious, maybe a little uncomfortable with such and plenty vain environment, since the have changed their way to see life. To me they were and they are uniques… All of the other ladies certainly were beautiful, but Angelina… she is something different.
