Sofia Vergara in Dolce & Gabbana at the Golden Globes: typical for her?

Just recently I was describing what it’s like to do fashion commentary, and I used Sofia Vergara as an example. I said “Do you know how Sofia Vergara always wears fitted mermaid dresses? Well you notice when she sticks or veers from that look and mention it.” So here she is in a red Dolce & Gabbana strapless gown with silver sequin piping. This is her typical look but she still worked it. I loved her giant hoop earrings they were amazing. Sofia presented with Matt Bomer and she called him out for saying one of her lines. Some people thought that was a bit, but I though she was just standing up for herself. She wore Dolce & Gabbana though, and given how problematic those designers are this was absolutely a choice.


Also in a fitted dress with sequin piping was Molly Sims. I don’t have a designer ID on this and she posted three photos to Instagram without mentioning it! I think I would like this better without the ruffles. The top half is gorgeous.

Gillian Anderson was in a boat neck white column gown with subtle sequin straps that trailed down to an open back and a kind of tied-off side capelet. This is an incredible look and so elegant!

Look at the back!

Idina Menzel also served up an awesome white column gown. I love the subtle beading and details one the side of the bodice and the cape is so dramatic. This is by Paule Ka.

Joe doesn’t look as hot with that beard, right?

    So bored of Sophia Vergara’s look. Same style hair, same style dresses. Same stylist as Jennifer Aniston, perhaps?

    • Placebo says:

      OMG, I was about to say the same thing….she’s like Aniston. Never changes and never will.

    • Marianne says:

      Same. When I saw her on the red carpet, I just rolled my eyes. Its the same look everytime.

    • Jadedone says:

      I think some women can wear any style bc they are tall and lean (nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett) but if you have curves or are shorter there are less styles that flatter your shape. So I can see why they might tend towards the same styles.

    • Sass says:

      Do you say the same about how pretty much every male celebrity wears the same look every time there’s an event? She looks great, it works for her, and I’m so sick of women being held to different standards. You’re bored? Get a hobby then for Christ sakes.

      • I'm With The Band says:

        The headlines be was ‘typical for her?’. Yes, yes it is. And guess what? IT’S BORING. It didn’t ask about male fashion, did it?

        Get off your high horse and take a valium. And a seat then for Christ sakes.

      • Annetommy says:

        Sofia looked good as always, why change a winning look? Not everyone wants to stretch the fashion boundaries. Some people just want to look glamorous. Gillian was a standout, so classy.

  2. Mustlovedogs says:

    Love Gillian’s dress and Idina looks lovely. Molly Sims is always pretty- but in this dress her boobs look as though they had an argument and are sleeping on opposite sides of the bed.

    • EMc says:

      Funny you should say that, I was thinking the exact same thing about Joe and Sofia’s body language!

      • SKF says:

        I think that’s more an issue of them both POSING as hard as possible to look their best and their individual poses not meshing as a couple pose. Super funny!

    • Wasabi says:

      Agent Scully looks incredible.

  3. JanetDR says:

    She knows what she likes and I’m okay with that! I actually think the metallic piping made it different enough. Otherwise I sometimes wonder why they couldn’t repeat a good look from the past if that’s the look you want though.

    • Esmom says:

      I thought the piping was really a departure from what she usually does. It’s a really pretty dress, the bodice is just gorgeous.

      Love all the other looks too except I’m not a big fan of the cape on Adele Dazeem’s, lol.

    • lucy2 says:

      I agree, that style works for her, and this is a slight variation on it. I feel like if she wore something different that didn’t work, people would be yelling at her to go back to the mermaid gowns.
      But I wouldn’t choose a D&G dress just on principle.

      Gillian looks AMAZING. So classic and elegant.

    • Lara K says:

      She knows what looks good on her.
      Sophia rarely surprises, but she will also never look a Goop-level mess either.
      She knows what her assets are and she plays them up. Can’t fault her for that.

      as for the designer choice, i don’t think anyone should be wearing D&G, but I also think Sophia is not the type to think about that. She wears what she likes. That I CAN fault her for – you have a platform, you are obligated to think about what you are wearing. That’s just how it is.

  4. Lili says:

    Sophia has the best accessory though: her husband.

  5. Bitchy architect says:

    Idina’s dress is too tight over the bust for my taste.

  6. JustMe says:

    Sofia’s dress fabric looks so cheap ugh all the $ and still looks cheap

  7. josephine says:

    Gillian’s is the only dress I like here. She looked terrific.

  8. Michael says:

    Sofia Vergara is a real life Jessica Rabbit

  9. Lisa says:

    Sophia looks typical but nice. Gillian Andetson looks incredible.

  10. guestaroo83 says:

    I thought Gillian Anderson had one of the best looks of the night even before I saw the back (which is amazing), though at some point I feel like we will see a knock off of it on SYTTD where a bride is looking for something “architectural and avante garde” because she’s not a NORMAL bride.

    That’s not a knock on Gillian to be clear, just what I thought of when I saw the dress. Gillian has a way of wearing a dress that elevates it rather then the dress elevating her, if that makes any sense.

    • Sass says:

      Her dress and Idina’s are part of a larger trend that was started when the Duchess of Sussex got married. Her gown kicked off the structural white dress trend. So if you see a bride in a gown along those lines, it would only make sense as it started as a bridal design.

  11. Aang says:

    Idk why Sofia Vergara should change her look. Bombshell works for her and she looks hot every time.

    • Genessee says:

      Agreed. I like that she brings in the bombshell look. There’s only so much frump and avant-garde looks I can stand.

  12. Anne says:

    Gillian looks amazing and regal. Sofia looks great as weel, I don’t have a problem with people who have consistent style.

  13. electra says:

    Gillian is such an alien. Stunning.

  14. Becks1 says:

    I like Sofia’s dress a lot but hate that its D&G.

    Gillian and Idina both looked amazing! Sometimes those white column gowns can be really boring but these are both gorgeous.

  15. LoonaticCap says:

    Although I despise D&G, I think she probably goes to the brand that gives her what she likes and D&G are masters of that silhouette and look.
    For all we know they may have paid her to wear it since no one wears them to the big awards anymore lol

    None of the above is meant to excuse her choice in wearing them though. But it could be a factor.

  16. Eliza_ says:

    If Molly didn’t mention it means she bought it. If it was a loaner it’s part of the deal to mention.

  17. Undercover says:

    Dress’s Molly Sims : marchesa fashion
    Dress’s Gillian Anderson : Safiyaa

  18. DiegoInSF says:

    To the commenters: Spell her name right, people. SoFia! not ph!

  19. Amber says:

    Molly’s dress is reportedly Marchesa according to the Fug Girls, which is ALSO a choice

  20. Naddie says:

    I clicked out of curiosity and yes, she’s wearing what I thought she would, and honestly it’s what I used to do in the past, but in a different style.
