Renee Zellweger's Golden Globes Look: Love It or Hate It?

When we think of Renee Zellweger on the red carpet, visions of sleek blonde hair and retro strapless gowns come to mind. So, we were a little surprised by the Oscar winner’s appearance at the Golden Globes in a look that seemed to pull from a Victorian inspiration. Gone was the recent short hair, replaced by an updo of corkscrew curls. In place of the usual shoulder-baring gown was a see-through blouse over a nude corset and fishtail skirt — all still by Carolina Herrera, of course. We always applaud stars for trying new looks — isn’t that the fun part of fashion? (See all the Best Dressed stars at the Golden Globes by clicking here!) But we want to know what you think.

She’s always been a bit odd looking from facial appearance and expressions to her hair and clothes. She has not yet shown her true style I guess – with her constant changes of appearance on a regular basis. Her facial expressions kill her look in a big way – just strange looking at times in the face especially; not attractive to say the least, as though it hurts her to smile.

I have always loved Renee’s work and she’s one of my favorite actresses and as a general rule she dresses impeccable for the red carpet; she’s always been loyal to her favorite designer, Carolina Herrera but I wonder if that loyalty made her blind, she looks heavy, short and looks more like a ghost wearing this more dark hue against her pale skin. But, both Nicole Kidman and she need to stop going to get facial injection because of their fear of aging, they both are starting to look glacial and before they start to look plastic like Cher and Meg Ryan. Go natural and stay that way, your both beautiful inside and out.

Love the hair…the dress overwhelms her, though.

she is stunning as ever!!!

Renee has always had an odd face – but she’s always done well with her clothing so that it’s not so obvious….until this mess. The hair draws attention to an already “moony” face and combined with this ugly outfit the entire look ages her about 20 years. What a shame…..

The gown itself is not bad at all, but that sheer top; she looks like she forgot to finish getting dressed.

Jamie on

I think Renee can never do wrong… I applaud her for trying something different. This dress was definitely not my favorite from last night, but I don’t think it was the worst dress I saw either…

The dress would have been pretty with a nude lining on the top. Shame of the stylists for letting that hot mess out with the bra showing. From the shoulders up, YUCK!!! Everyone now knows you can’t do a proper up do with short hair.
