What Was Vanessa Williams Thinking?

01/16/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Retro looks are usually glamorous shoe-ins for the red carpet — unless you are channeling Diana Ross in Mahogany. Or maybe Beyonce in the later stages of Dreamgirls? Whatever the inspiration, Vanessa Williams went for a totally hair-raising look at last night’s Golden Globes, complete with wild curls and braids. Vanessa is clearly a beautiful woman, but maybe a few less extensions would have been a better look. Tell us: What do you think of Vanessa’s hair? Is it a retro do or a total hair don’t?

Loved Vanessa’s dress, but her hair was HORRID!

You need to show the whole ensemble. Cuz yes, by itself the hair is a fright, but for some reason when paired with her outfit as well she looked AWESOME! I thought she was the best looking of all the ladies that night

The fur jacket and the big hair, together, made it worse. She should have left the fur jacket off.

Her hair was a big much although her dress was absolutely gorgeous. She is such a beautiful woman – but I think she made the wrong decision with the hair do!

she didn’t look this scary on tv. the only thing worse than the hair is the FUR. c’mon vanessa, you seem like an educated intelligent woman..?!

Jen on

I thought she looked fantastic. What’s wrong w/ big hair?

Gg on

Okay J, that is your opinion, but just because she is wearing fur doesn’t mean the woman isn’t educated or intelligent. It was cold out. Anyways, we don’t need to get into a battle of the FUR. On to her hair, obviously she wasn’t watching VH1 when they showed a clip of Christina Aguilara’s hair from an awards show a few years ago when she tried to make a statement with the afro. It didn’t go over well then, and it sure looks like crap now. Vanessa is a very beautiful woman but I have to say this hair isn’t doing a thing for her.

the second i saw her i said, “OH! She will be on the worst dressed list.” which sucks because i love her in ugly betty! she is great and so beautiful.

I luv her on ‘Betty’ and pray that with hard work, I’ll look like that when I am her age. Maybe she was trying to incorporate a little Willamena into the awards!!
