Carrie Underwood in pink Iris Serban at the Golden Globes: fussy or pretty?

Presenter Carrie Underwood managed to look different than just about every other woman on the red carpet last night in this pink Iris Serban gown with cut out sides and tightly folded flowers along the neckline. Look at her shoulders this makes her look like a linebacker. (Not her build, just the dress, it has like floral armor.) I will say something nice which I mentioned in the post on Drew Barrymore – Carrie’s default is to wear a lot of makeup, but somehow it works on her.



Connie Britton was also in pink, in a Georges Hobeika gown with one cap sleeve. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that feature on a dress before, it’s like the designers are straining to be unique. It surely exists on another dress, it’s just new to me. I do like the dripping floral sequin pattern on the top. That’s beautiful.



Here’s poor Keri Russell, nominated for best actress in a drama, which went to Claire Foy. I hope that The Americans racks up some awards finally. It seems underappreciated for how good a show it is. Keri was in a sad leopard print J. Mendel gown which was just wrong from start to tiered ruffle finish.


Check out the back of Keri’s dress, even the built-in cape is tiered. Why?!

    Like Carrie’s dress!

    • Pandy says:

      I do too! Really interesting and a nice pink. I LOVE Keri’s dress as well – especially with the choker. I thought she looked great in it!

  2. OSTONE says:

    Carrie is easily the worst dressed of the night. My lord the color and the ruffles, it reminded me of a bad bridesmaid dress, roast beef and macarons.

  3. Aiobhan Targaryen says:

    Keri’s dress would work better on a photo shoot than a red carpet. The last photo where she is moving proves this.

    Carrie’s dress is disturbing to me. It either looks like female body parts or a design on a wedding cake. Either way, this dress is far from flattering.

  4. Erinn says:

    I like Carrie’s dress – it’s different, but still kind of cool. They were smart enough not to overdo the lower half of the dress.

    And she does wear makeup well. It’s done heavily, but it’s not completely overpowering her, which happens to a lot of people who go that heavy.

  5. Ali says:

    Carrie’s dress looks like a bad rendition of a Georgia O’Keeffee painting come to life.

  6. OriginallyBlue says:

    The highlighter (I think that’s what it is) on her chin is so distracting. She reminds me of Blake Lively with the pageant poses all the time.

    • kay says:

      i thought you wrote “pregnant poses” and had actually just come to see if anyone else thinks she looks early in a first trimester, so had to laugh at my mistaking pageant…

    My eyes

    Carrie’s default setting seems to be prom queen/beauty queen contestant

    • It'sJustBlanche says:

      She always looks like the meanest mom at the Wichita State Tri Delta reunion.

      • Sadezilla says:

        Haha, love it, It’sJustBlanche! You’re not wrong.

        I assume Carrie likes her look since she pretty much always goes with the heavy makeup, prom queen look, but man… she is consistent. I think’s she’s very pretty and would look good in another style. We may never know!

      • Linda says:

        She always looks so arrogant and full of herself. That’s enough to make me not like her. Every time she opens her mouth and words come out she sounds like she is arrogant and full of herself.

      • Michelle says:

        I agree too. I keep expecting her to be this bright, bubbly person (like Drew Barrymore) and I keep getting disappointed. She goes really heavy on the make-up. I would love to see her done one of those ‘no make-up’ pics just to see what’s underneath.

  9. Jayna says:

    I liked it on Carrie.

  10. Layla Beans says:

    Carrie Underwood looked like a cupcake in that mess.

  11. BabySwans says:

    Can’t stop staring at her eyebrows…

  12. QQ says:

    OOFF What Is She wearing.. That chest .. Box Fathergod! Also she is so Young .. In that second pic up close?? WHY IS SHE WEARING SO MUCH MAKEUP!.. but then Highlight these brows.. She looks so dated

    Connie Britton’s dress Is pretty nice, would be better in a darker chick, so as to pop more?

  13. Margo S. says:

    Carrie underwood just seems like a spoiled brat to me. I don’t get the appeal…? I don’t mind Keri Russell’s dress. It’s different!

  14. KBeth says:

    Carrie has terrible style, the heavy makeup ages her & the dress looks like it was made for birthday Barbie.
    Keri Russel is stunning but the dress overwhelms her, I agree w/ whoever said it would work better for a photo shoot.
    Connie Britton is gorgeous, dress is meh. How does she get her arms so toned??

  15. HappyMom says:

    I think all 3 are ugly.

  16. susiecue says:

    Oh, Keri…. that dress…..NO!

    Carrie Underwood hasn’t ever worn anything I liked. She’s ice skater Barbie design til the day she dies.

  17. LaDiabla says:

    “Meanest Mom at the Wichita State Tri Delta Reunion”….BAHAHAHA!!! That is hilarious and spot-on. Is just me or is she kind of throwing off a younger Kelly-Anne Conway vibe here? Sorrynotsorry. Awful look is just awful.

    I don’t mind Connie’s dress…I think she looks pretty here.

    This is not one of Keri’s best dresses, but I just love her and don’t care. She’s always a stunner.

    I love, love Keri’s dress! I think she looks gorgeous and that dress has a cool sexy vibe!
