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?

Hello “A Sista”…I am not a sister…and yes, some of us caucasions get called brillo head too!!! ( people can be mean to others of all colors I have decided!)I have since learned to control my curl with gel…and to love the terrific curl that used to earn me the name of Brillo head….But these curls of mine sure do have the need to be tamed….I think vanessa could tame that head of hair just a bit..way too much hair for my taste..but I DO know how hard it is to control

VANESSA LOOKED GREAT, AS USUAL! ENOUGH “HATING” BY PEOPLE THAT DON’T COMPARE TO HER. YOU CALL HER “AGED,” AND CRITICIZE HER LOOK. WHAT THE HECK DO U ALL LOOK LIKE?! I DOUBT AS GOOD AS HER…SO THINK BEFORE U TALK! :)

I don’t think it’s that bad. Why does everybody want people to sport sleek, straight hair? I think the hair is not as much of an issue as the make-up, it’s wrong. Especially that shade of lipstick.
