Halle Berry in cranberry Zuhair Murad at The Globes, looking amazing

Halle Berry is so gorgeous she makes me want to give up sugar. I know she’s on a keto diet by necessity as she has Type 1 diabetes, but if that’s her secret (along with a ton of exercise, which frankly would be easier for me than cutting sugar) I will consider it. She was in Zuhair Murad, in a cranberry gown with a deep v neck and velvet stripes. I swear we’ve seen her in many variations of this dress over the years but my god does it work for her. She’s 52 years old and I should know this by now but I have to look it up every time because she looks like this. One complaint is that her fake ponytail is too long, but I did not notice that when she was on stage.


Halle presented along with Lena Waithe, who was also strikingly gorgeous on camera. Lena is usually cute and sporty looking but last night she just looked elegant. It’s her new hair I think. This still photo doesn’t do her justice.

Kristen Bell also killed it in Zuhair Murad. Her styling was so pretty and that dress was perfect. I’ve been rightfully criticized for liking very safe, classic looks so if that’s your criticism of this gown I’m ok with that. Overall she knocked it out of the park though. Oh and I linked to this in an earlier post today but she made me feel better about not owning any designer heels. (Unless Stuart Weitzman counts. They were on sale!)



This is a post with beautiful gowns, so here’s Gemma Chan in a breathtaking Valentino gown. It’s rare that one of these stupid open mullet gowns actually works like this. Look at the draping and gathering along the skirt, it’s perfection. It has pockets too and a bow at the back. They stuck to a single rich color in a single fabric and let the amazing cut of the dress shine. Her hair and makeup are so gorgeous too. I don’t even mind the matchy shoes.



Nominee Laura Dern was also in Valentino, in that deep crimson color which was so popular, but unlike Gemma’s gown there’s just a little too much happening here. Maybe I would like it without sleeves or with a sleek bodice.


Gemma’s costar Michelle Yeoh was in bright green and she wore her Crazy Rich Asians character Eleanor’s emerald ring on the red carpet! She told Giuliana on the red carpet that it was her own ring too. I don’t have an ID on her gown, but it’s really striking and I love the wrap. It looks like the dress is leather and lace.

    I think Halle’s body type is too fit for the cut of that dress.

    • HK9 says:

      ?? – You can’t wear it if you’re not.

      • Gigi La Moore says:

        ??? As I said, I think she’s too fit for it. I think it would look better on a wispy type woman.

    • Jessica says:

      Disagree. Halle looks perfect aside from the hair.

    • JAC says:

      I don’t think it’s her body because she looks amauing, but the dress and styling look very dated. I feel like I’m looking at a photo from an award show in 2005.

    • Pandy says:

      Not sure what it is about her dress … but I feel like she looks … dumpy? I don’t like it. Kristen Bell for the win, followed closely by Laura Dern. LOVE her dress and she does too – she looks very comfy and happy.

  2. Nev says:

    Wow Halle is gorgeous.

  3. Renee2 says:

    I love that they are holding hands, it made me smile.

    • Lizzie says:

      so i actually rewound the broadcast to make sure i wasn’t seeing things but in the minute they were up there – their chemistry torched my tv screen. halle berry was being very affectionate and the whole thing was sexy.

  4. Lolly says:

    Gemma Chan is so beautiful, it’s ridiculous.

  5. Josephine says:

    Michaell Yeoh looked fabulous. I doubt very many people could pull off that dress but she looked stunning.

  6. LT says:

    Love Gemma’s gown – great color on her. With so many washed out blondes, it’s nice to see some dramatic jewel tones with that gorgeous dark hair.

  7. Becks1 says:

    Halle, Gemma, Michelle – all fabulous. Halle is someone that I always look forward to seeing on the red carpet, because I feel like even when she misses, she still takes risks, and her face and body are always gorgeous.

    Kristen Bell looks fine. I like a nice classic dress too, but that is classic to the point of boring. But its fine.

    • Patty says:

      Halle looks great but she never takes any type of fashion risks. That’s why she’s not celebrated for her style. Amazing body but generally sticks to the same type / style. But it works for her.

    • Thirsty Hirsty says:

      re Kristen’s dress….I LOVE the embellishments on the shoulder. Delicate, dainty and definitely add luster to a happy gown

  8. Lucy2 says:

    I like all of these except for Laura‘s.
    I definitely feel like we’ve seen something very similar on Halle before.

    • Esmom says:

      I thought the same thing about Halle, too! I guess she knows what works for her.

      Agree with your assessment. Laura’s hair was so pretty even if her dress was not great.

      I really liked Kristen’s understated makeup for some reason.

    • jan90067 says:

      Halle does this same silhouette, in different fabrics, with perhaps a cutout, all the time. Like Sophia Vergara, she knows what works/shows off her figure to its best, and goes with it time after time. I think she overdid the bronzer/highlighter a bit (too “golden”; I like her makeup when it is a bit rosier), but damn, she is just a gorgeous woman!

  9. L84Tea says:

    Good Lord, Gemma Chan has got to be one of the most beautiful women on the planet!

  10. Starkiller says:

    Michelle Yeoh looks AMAZING, good lord! I guess I’m in the minority on Gemma’s, but I think she just looks like she’s wearing a fancy duvet, sorry.

    Kirsten’s gown is lovely but she almost looks ill…has a sweaty-looking sheen on her face and her hair looks really lank and greasy? If her hair and makeup people made her look like that on purpose they should never be allowed to work again!

  11. Other Renee says:

    Michelle and Gemma are perfection.

    Dislike the neckline on Laura’s dress. Actually the whole thing is too Little Bo Peep in red.

    Why does Halle insist on letting her boobs hang out so much? It looks cheap. The fake pony tail looks ridiculous.

    Kristen’s dress is nice. She just looks washed out in that color especially with her blonde hair.

    • Thirsty Hirsty says:

      @!Other Renee … agree totally. I thought Halle’s pony tail was ‘honouring’ Jane Fonda’s from last year?

      I super-duper wish these women would put the boobs away. We all know you’ve got ’em, but there comes a point where flaunting them is just….cheap. I want women with class, and style…together.

  12. Kerfuffle says:

    Halle’s dress would be significantly better lined. The unlined look isn’t sexy, it just shows every crease and fold and underwear. It ruins what would be a beautiful dress otherwise.

  13. tori says:

    I don’t know who is the most gorgeous, Halle or Charlize. To me there isn’t a woman who comes close.

  14. Katebush says:

    Not liking this look on Halle agree the fake pony tail looks cheats and too much cleavage. I feel like if the dress were lined the whole thing would look a lot classier.

  15. Lola says:

    Michelle Yeoh looks stunning! She is a beautiful woman, so no surprise there. Looking at the Shiatzy Chen website right after this.

  16. elbly says:

    Thank you so much, Celebitchy team, for all your awesome coverage. I srsly had a healing moment when I read Sandra Oh’s comments in Variety in a recent post here. (Btw, longtime reader 🙂 + 45 year old Asian American woman).

    On a lighter note. MICHELLE. Looking like the OG that she is and *every* inch the Asian movie star. She’s among the first that made me feel like Sandra Oh talks about.

  17. Lis says:

    She is always gorgeous and seems to never age.
