Kelly Clarkson, in Christian Siriano, had the cutest reaction to meeting Meryl Streep

While I was initially dreading an all-black red carpet at the Golden Globes I was surprised at how gorgeous so many of the dresses were. The single color scheme made the details and unique features of the gowns stand out and it was refreshing actually. I’m not specifically talking about Kelly Clarkson’s dress, but this is the first fashion post I’m writing so I’ll get that out of the way. We’re also not “judging” fashion as much, as Kaiser explained in the recap post. Basically we’re trying to be nicer. So I’ll just say that I found Kelly’s one black, one metallic sleeve Christian Siriano gown quite unique, except that Mary J. Blige had on a gown with one metallic sleeve too. I’ve seen one sleeve and two-color sleeve dresses of course but the one metallic sleeve is new to me. Both women are working it. I like the princessy details on Kelly’s gown, like the sweetheart neckline and full skirt.

If you didn’t see Kelly’s freakout on the red carpet over Meryl Streep it could make your day. She’s just so overwhelmed to meet her and it’s cute.

Here’s Mary J. Blige in Alberta Ferretti as mentioned. She was nominated for Supporting Actress for her work in Mudbound (it’s available on Netflix now!), which went to Allison Janney for I, Tonya. I didn’t notice during the ceremony but the metallic design on that killer velvet dress dress goes down the side in a swoop pattern. Also that single strap leading to the sleeve is such a gorgeous detail. Look at the thin sequin line across the bodice. I could go on.

Like Kelly, Christina Hendricks was in Christian Siriano. This gown actually features capri pants under an open skirt. I would have liked to see a full skirt with this instead but I love the velvet drape on the top. We need moar velvet dresses.

Also in Christian Siriano we have America Ferrera, who just announced she’s expecting her first child. I love it when pregnant ladies wear formfitting gowns and this sequin full length scoop neck seemed perfect for the occasion. Plus she wore a tuxedo jacket over it! There were a few striking tuxedo jackets last night. I didn’t see this live but I saw a tweet that America called Mariah Carey into the group photo on the red carpet.

Here’s a cute video of America with Natalie Portman, with whom she walked the red carpet. Kaiser will be covering Natalie separately!

    Christina Hendricks – Wish her hair was more polished….

  2. Whoopsy Daisy says:

    I hate Kelly’s dress. It’s too big, too bulky and that neckline looks bad.

    • homeslice says:

      I know. I love Kelly, I just wish she would find a better person to style her. That dress is wearing her!

    • Ozogirl says:

      I agree, it does nothing for her. Her reaction to Meryl was adorable though.

    • holly hobby says:

      I did not like the dress. She looks like she has C3-PO’s left arm. :( It would have been nicer if it was all black.

  3. ahoyhoy says:

    Kelly Clarkson always exudes such JOY in everything. It’s so real and infectious.

    • Snazzy says:

      It really is. And there’s no question it’s real. I can’t help but love her

    • Lucy2 says:

      She does! It’s one of the things I love about her. That was very cute moment.

      Never thought I’d see not one but 2 metallic sleeve dresses on the red carpet. I think I like Mary’s better, but neither is really my thing.

    • Jayna says:

      I adore Kelly. I’ve watched some great interviews with her and always come away impressed with how insightful she is, even about her dad who has rarely been in her life and she tried, and what a great human being she is.

    • mia girl says:

      I love her too. So much talent and joy wrapped up in one person! And call me corny, but I still tear up if I hear “A Moment Like This” thinking about her winning American Idol. LOL

      Related, I recently started following Justin Guarini (yes, I know) on Twitter after reading a couple of his tweets. He is very funny, self deprecating and politically active.

  4. OSTONE says:

    I love Kelly! Loooved America’s dress and how she styled it.

  5. JenB says:

    I saw Christina presenting and thought she looked uncomfortable and so poorly styled! She’s gorgeous but the hair/outfit was really unflattering, IMO.

  6. Jayna says:

    Wow, Mary J. Blige’s gown is stunning on her.

    People need to watch and support Mudbound on Netflix. It was directed by an African-American woman, Dee Rees, a scriptwriter and director. It’s about two families in the segregated Mississippi Delta just before, during and after World War II. She took the existing script which she loved and was based on a book and rewrote parts of it and fleshed out the story of the black family more, so that it was truly an equal tale of two families, one black, one white, with a chance for many fine black actors to have meaty roles, not one-dimensional characters. So many strong performances by all, like Carey Mulligan. Jason Mitchell was amazing. Mary J. Blige was a revelation. I didn’t even know it was her at first.

    I loved reading her interviews when she was promoting Mudbound. Dee Rees has an interesting life in what made her move to writing and directing, Being a writer also should give her more power in Hollywood , rather than waiting for scripts to come to her,

    “Suggested Rees to the DGA Theater crowd of Academy and guild voters: “I just think it exposes race as an economic construct and exposes the fact that we’re all interconnected, not just to each other but to our history. Like, there is no ‘then,’ there is no ‘will be,’ there is only now. And I think that everything is now. We can’t dismiss our histories and say, ‘Oh, so and so is a product of their times…’ We are the times, and we decide what kind of nation we’re going to be, and I think a place to start is interrogating our own personal history, and this film inspired me to do that.”

    • Laura Cee says:

      Thanks for the recommendation of Mudbound! I also loved KC’s reaction to meeting MS. 😃

  7. AnnaKist says:

    Oooooooo, yes, please – More Velvet Dresses!

  8. Xtrology says:

    I thought Kelly looked gorgeous.

  9. paranormalgirl says:

    Kelly always seems so genuine, even when she comes off as over the top – it’s a genuine reaction.

  10. KiddV says:

    Love Mary J. Blige’s dress.

    And I love the look of the open skirt with pants. Very old Hollywood.

  11. Bridget says:

    Am I the only one who looks at Kelly’s dress and sees Kim Basingers weird white Oscars ball gown from the 80s?

    • I Choose Me says:

      Nope. I love Kelly but that dress is a nope on her. She doesn’t quite pull it off but hey, her smile is like THE BEST accessory.

      Marj J. Blige on the other hand is rocking the hell out of her gown.

  12. Betsy says:

    I think velvet got so overused in the late 80s/early 90s that designers are still in revolt, but I agree, it’s a lovely winterweight material.

    Also I love the Kelly Wearstler wallpaper by the elevator. So chic.

  13. Rosey says:

    I don’t like Kelly’s dress either. Loved Mary J’s dress though.

  14. holly hobby says:

    Kelly Clarkson also met up with Steve Carrell last night and it was funny too (See their twitter feed). She’s really one of the few celebs I genuinely like.

  15. Pandy says:

    Mary J for the win out of the three.
