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?

I don’t know what Vanessa was thinking, but she must have been drunk whwn she told her hair stylist how she wanted her hair done for the Golden Globes. Maybe she said poofy instead of pretty

I thought if she didn’t wear the fur (hope it was fake)her hair wouldn’t have been so overwhelming,she beautiful anyways. And to the person who said Beyonce could pull this off,are you kidding? She was the worst dressed of the night.

Did Lion King on Broadway come to town?

She looks so old…and so orange. I don’t know if it’s the hair that makes it look more apparent, but her face is looking quite…aged.

She is absolutely gorgeous! Even with her retro hair style, it made a nice well put together ensemble. She get’s my “HOT” vote.

Vanessa is a beautiful woman having fun AND expressing her ethnicity…she should not be expected to or should have to severely straighten her hair all the time. That being said, this is one of the few time where she did not pull off a balanced look wearing the fur stole; perhaps removing it off her shoulders while walking the red carpet would have been the best idea. Not only would we have actually seen her dress, she would have looked terrific with a break from her hair to the dress. With the odd shape of the stole, everything was just too, too brown and shapeless AND put too much focus on her hair.

I THINK HER HAIR LOOKS AWFULLY CUTE!

TOO MUCH WORK FOR BLACK HAIR? HELLO – IT’S NOT LIKE SHE’S STAYING UP ALL NIGHT DOING IT. IT WAS NOT NATURAL, IT WAS UGLY – NOT TO MENTION ALL FAKE!

Years ago, in Jr Hight School…Before I learned about stying products…I had hair like this…I did not know any better…I did not have hair stylists…I did not have people to help me…..I have sinse learned to use the products on the pharmacy shelves, and have shed the nick name “BRILLO HEAD”…I feel for this woman….she needs a hair intervention

Don’t parents teach their kids to NOT stick forks in electrical sockets? Vanessa obviously missed that lesson.
