Helen Mirren, Glenn Close & Meryl Streep: who looked the best at the Globes?

First racism and now ageism. I’m having a terrible morning!! Anyway, we decided to put all of the old(er) broads in one post, because… well, you know. As much as I love Meryl Streep, Helen Mirren and Glenn Close, they’re never going to be the most talked-about fashionistas. I was surprised when Meryl won Best Actress – I really thought Viola Davis had this whole thing in the bag, but every now and then, people just like to give Meryl an award, and God bless them. Meryl is pure joy, even when she’s cussing up a storm about her glasses. Though I love Meryl, and I think she’s a fierce bitch in almost all areas, I hated her Alessandra Rich shirtdress. Dear Meryl: do not wear shirtdresses to the Golden Globes. PS… I love you.

Meryl beat out Glenn Close for Best Actress, and the silver lining is that Glenn didn’t have to get on stage in this hideousness. Look, I think Glenn is beautiful. I’m undecided as to whether she’s had work done, but I like that she looks her age, and she looks beautiful for her age, and her talent is extraordinary. But the best thing I can say about this gown was that it was a pretty color and it was age-appropriate. Maybe a little too appropriate, because Glenn looks older than she should.

Dame Helen Mirren was one of my best-dressed of the night, which you probably suspected because you know I’m a whore for jewel tones. Helen wore this stunning Badgley Mischka, which managed to be age-appropriate, yet made her look sexy and young. Yay for Helen! She’s so adorable.

    Helen looked beautiful. Meryl almost always dresses somewhat “down”, which I’m guessing is because at this point in her career she just doesn’t care as much and so she wears something comfortable. Plus Meryl is Meryl, so she always gets a pass (in my book). Glenn looked great from the neck up.

  2. Sisi says:

    confession: I used to have a girlcrush on Glen Close. You know, in that movie where she played the vice-president on that plane (or something… I don’t remember the details, it’s a long time ago)

    I never have girlcrushes, but there just was something about her in that movie!

  3. Julie says:

    Helen is absoultely beautiful. I love Meryl as well and was’t in love with the look but her face is gorgeous. Case of pretty as as pretty does.

  4. Jules says:

    Meryl’s dress was so blah. Glenn and Helen looked lovely.

  5. Ela says:

    I actually liked Glenns dress, its elegant. Helen looks fabulous.

  6. bea says:

    Helen is always beautiful and she won last night.

    I though Meryl’s shirt looked like a cowboy shirt with lace inserts AND Her hair was disheveled mess. But she seems so natural – she made me love how she looked!

    Glenn’s hair looked like a straw helmet – but the rest was good.

    Finally, some women to admire! (and snark on their outfits)

  7. Nev says:

    Helen was beaming…great hairstyle on her last night.

  8. Marianne says:

    Meryl always dresses pretty bad, but compared to Glenn, she was much better. Helen looks the nicest out of this bunch.

  9. Ravensdaughter says:

    Helen-she is still one hot babe!

  10. lucy2 says:

    Love Helen’s gown, don’t care for Glenn or Meryl’s.
    I’m surprised Viola didn’t win too – I loved her dress though.

  11. Feebee says:

    I think the Dame has it… still. It’s not really fair to put Meryl in a fashion who did it best with anyone because… well… she’ll never win. I liked Glenn’s outfit – perfectly appropriate but I found it a little jarring against her pale pale skin.

  12. Jess says:

    Helen should never be in the same post as the other two. She usually rocks gorgeous, sexy, fashionable (albeit slightly more mature) looks. Meanwhile, poor Meryl and Glenn have everything except good fashion sense. Glenn usually picks gowns that aren’t great, and Meryl often dresses like she was grocery shopping and had to throw on something at the last minute. And what was up with her hair? I thought for a moment she had a banana clip! In what world would anyone say that bizarre clip is a good idea for running errands, much less an award show?

  13. Cathy says:

    Meryls dress or really long poofy shirt is just awful. I like Glenns dress except for that thing across the top. Love Helens gown though, it looks nice on her.

  14. the original bellaluna says:

    Helen, hands down. I do adore them all, but those “wings” on Meryl’s dress really did nothing for either her or the dress.

  15. Heine says:

    Meryl, no. A thousand times no. But I like her. The dress is terrible but she’s so giddy and weird and funny that it makes sense for her.

    Love Glenn Close. Hate the cutlets on her dress. The top over emphasized her underarm flab and she has like, none. Don’t wear dressed that give you underarm flab.

    Dame Mirren looks amazing as usual. Best dressed of the evening, in my opinion.

  16. Jane says:

    I have never seen Meryl Streep in a beautiful dress that compliments her. Her taste is in her mouth as far as her taste in clothes and hair. You would think that someone, after all these years, would have convinced her to hire a stylist, even just once. Just once show up looking like the grand lady she is.

    Messy hair is hard to pull off even for the younger crowd when they are in a formal setting. People thinks it looks edgy or something, but it looks like what it really is, messy, unkempt, a rat’s nest, bed head, whatever you want to call it. When you are Meryl Streep and you pick lousy dresses and are over 60, messy hair look nothing more than the above descriptions.

    However, I think she is a wonderful actress and person. I have seen her on many talk shows and she seems to be a great person. Too bad her greatness doesn’t extend to her appearance.

  17. Jess says:

    Speaking of the older ladies, can we get a post on how freakin’ fantastic Jane Fonda looked last night? I literally gasped when she walked out on stage, she was that va-va-va-voom!

  18. Sasha says:

    Queen Helen of Fuckinfantastica (h/t Tom & Lorenzo) — no contest.

  19. Franny says:

    Last night when they were announcing the nominees, when they mentioned Glenn my boyfriend goes “for 101 Dalmatians?”

    I seriously laughed for about 10 minutes

  20. Original Chloe says:

    I’m gonna say Helen.

  21. angelina says:

    Helen looked stunning! She always does, but this dress is def one of my favorites — the color, the cut, all of it is perfect on her. Meryl is such a beautiful woman, it’s a shame that her clothing doesn’t do anything for her. I also loved Glenn’s look as well.

  22. meme says:

    Helen knows how to work it. Fantastic! Love Meryl and Glen but this is an area they could both use some styling help.

  23. danielle says:

    Helen for sure. Love Close and Streep tho!

  24. Ranga says:

    Well I’m a sucker for blue velvet, so Glenn wins for me. I hope I’m sexy like her when I’m older!

  25. skuddles says:

    Oh Helen, you minx! Drop dead gorgeous!! Love her smile… yes I know you want me darlings, and no, you can’t have me. Hands down winner. Glenn, lovely dress! Meryl…. dear, I… uh…oi yoi yoi. But I love her so much she could strap on a circus tent for all I care and uh…. oh never mind. :D

  26. Kim says:

    Helen looks the best but they all look good. Not a huge fan of Meryls dress but she usually wears this type of dress and it works for her.

  27. Walice says:

    Jessica Lange looked better than all three, and Jane Fonda outright stole the show, in any age group!!

    BUT Dame Helen Mirren from this list

  28. Sophie says:

    GLENN CLOSE! she always beats the two of them anyways with any dress…

  29. Joey Spagna says:

    I would love to kiss any one of their hineys. i am a sexaholic. i can’t get enough hineys.

  30. Mandi says:

    I have to say they all were beautiful! I wouldn’t turn any of them down if they came to my door, they could all be wearing garbage bags for all I care. All three are talented and still smoking HOT in their sixties. *sigh* I am just going to sit and stare…
