Did Charlize Theron have the best Dior look at the Golden Globes or nah?

Nominee, Charlize Theron, arrives at the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, CA on Sunday, January 5, 2020.

I was low-key shocked by the number of women dressed in Dior at last night’s Golden Globes. Usually, Dior only dresses a handful of A-listers and they make sure that everything is on-point. This year, they dressed about a dozen women and most of this sh-t looked like knock-off Versace or budget Rodarte. It was definitely weird – there was no rhyme or reason to any of the Dior looks. Anyway, here’s Charlize Theron in Dior. I thought this was Versace, but… like, weird Versace. I’ll give the look some credit: the corset/bustier thing was impeccable. It was the lime green fabric drape that threw off the look. Plus, I just haven’t enjoyed Charlize’s styling recently – she doesn’t know what to do with her hair and it shows.

Awkwafina wore Dior and she won Best Actress in a Comedy/Musical for The Farewell. Which is a great little movie and I’m so happy for her, and happy for the film. This look is very… Awkwafina.

Dakota Fanning’s Dior look seemed… okay. I’m okay with it.

Helen Mirren’s look was my favorite Dior. She’s so beautiful and this is so classy!

I know I’m being too harsh, but Anna Paquin’s Dior offends me. It’s just the wrong choice for this event. Plus, it’s ugly.

    So many women looked terrible this time, is there a stylist strike or something?
    Every post it just gets worse.

    • Cari says:

      I agree! These women have a choice of anything to wear! Awful dresses🤢

    • Bee says:

      Glad I’m not the only one who feels that way! Every dress is terrible but on top of that the styling makes it even worse! The colours are awful on most dresses, some look like day/summer dresses, and what is with the poofy sleeves and oddly draped fabrics! Did no one get dresses tailored.
      The only person I found looked good was Helen and maybe Jennifer Annistan (it wasn’t great but she looked fresh and put together)

    • Amy Too says:

      I don’t like everyone’s weird orangey eye shadow. Everyone looks sick. I actively fight the orange and red around my eyes with concealer, but so many women were wearing ugly peachy orange eyeshadow this year. It’s not attractive at all. Sometimes it can look editorial and high fashion but that’s BECAUSE it’s ugly.

  2. MMC says:

    Dakota’s dress was lovely, but the styling was off. I wish she would finally do something different with her hair.

  3. Miriam says:

    I dont know what’s changed but the ladies look worse at red carpets these years! I agree Charlize had the best Dior look

  4. JustMe says:

    Helen Mirren could show up in a bathrobe and still look better than women decades younger

    • Snappyfish says:

      Helen does manage to look glorious all the time. I went back & forth on Charlize’s dress. She has a lovely figure but it was the wrong dress to wear to honor Tom Hanks. Someone walked in the room when she was on & asked if she had been attacked on the red carpet & had half her dress torn off & she thought “hey, I’ll go with it”.

      So w/that theme in mind, you go girl!

    • Lady2Lazy says:

      That’s true!! She always takes risks on the carports and kills the looks that she wears! She seems to have fun with what she wears and I think that shows in her personality. She looked great a year or so ago in a bikini and she makes no apologies.
      As for Charlize, poor girl. She really hit a strike out with the green. It would have looked better had it been a different color instead of. Muppet color.
      Dakota looks like she should be 5 in that dress and hair. Whereas Anna looks completely lost as to where she is.

  5. Mignionette says:

    Nope that honour goes to Phoebe Waller Bridge. Loved her glitzy Tux with cigar trousers.

    The other standout was Zendaya who always looks amazing.

  6. Diane says:

    Someone on another board said Dakota looked very Molly Ringwald in Sixteen Candles in her bridesmaid dress. I think they nailed that, it was bugging me why her dress looked kind of familiar.

    • ChillyWilly says:

      On wow, yes very Samantha Baker bridesmaid dress. Not sure that’s a good thing though.
      I literally hate Charlize’s gown. That color is hideous. I don’t like her hair either. Both she and Ellen were bordering on Hitler Youth Hair.
      Helen Mirren looked smashing as usual.

  7. Jennifer says:

    Helen Mirren was one of my favorites. She looked absolutely perfect.

  8. damejudi says:

    Maybe I’m one of only a few, but I loved Awkwafina’s look! Framed her face so beautifully!

    • ChillyWilly says:

      I liked it too! I thought she looked cool but still fancy enough for the event. I like her a lot.

    • Esmom says:

      I loved it, too. It was actually one of my very favorite looks.

    • Green Desert says:

      Agreed, super stylish.

    • BellaBella says:

      I couldn’t help wondering if she was choking. I thought that piece of black tulle in the front of the collar was her hair at first. I was, needless to say, very confused and hoping she was getting enough air.

  9. Lucy says:

    Awkwafina might be a bit of a Noted Kook (as the GFY girls would say) and I love her for it. Her style is kinda crazy, yeah, but always impeccably executed imo.

  10. Lisa says:

    Helena Mirren looked great. The others in this post not so much..

  11. Lightpurple says:

    Dame Helen for the win of this group.

  12. Ali says:

    Helen Mirren looked fabulous as always.

    Happy for Awkwafina. Her raspy voice is so sexy it always surprises me when I hear it.

    The bra peeking out embarrassed me for Charlize because Tom Hanks is such a dad, that presenting to him in half underwear felt a little inappropriate. And on the other hand her saying she had a mad crush and Rita needed to take out a restraining order, also in an exposed bra, seemed weird. There had to have been other choices that would have worked netter.

  13. Faithmobile says:

    Very happy for Awkwafina! Her dress was perfect for her as was Helen’s. Not a fan of the half dressed look but Charlize is a goddess, so if anyone can pull it off…

  14. Becks1 says:

    I loved Helen Mirren’s look. It was classy and perfect for this kind of event. And that necklace!

  15. Anne says:

    Helen and Akwafina looked awesome and I honestly always thought that Charlize looks amazing in anything and everything but this color was not a good choice for her or for anyone else for that matter. I have a marker in this color.

  16. Trish-a says:

    Gack my eyes! I hate all those dresses except HM. Looks lovely! Dakota freaked me out like it was 20 years ago. This year was soooo bad.

  17. SJR says:

    I don’t like any of these dresses.

    Helen Mirren, I like the style of the dress but the shade of color reminds me of car upholstery, good jewelry tho.

    Who is picking that dress for CT? Boy, that is one ugly mish mash of a dress.

  18. PlayItAgain says:

    Helen was stunning, as usual.

    I just don’t get Charlize’s Dior. It’s like she was surprised while putting on her corset and grabbed a lime pashmina to cover up.

    Dakota is giving me a creepy Daddy vibe. Ewwww!

  19. Laura says:

    I love Anna’s dress!! It was one of my favorites of the night. Dakota’s dress on the other hand, just no.

    • Green Desert says:

      Agreed! Anna’s dress is great, fashion-forward. Give me some style over boring status quo like what Dakota is wearing any day.

  20. tmbg says:

    Helen looks gorgeous and the rest of the dresses stink. 🤷🏼‍♀️

  21. Flying fish says:

    CT: nay.

  22. SM says:

    As a fan of short hair on women, I like the hair. It is a statement of sorts. But that dress is bad, way below Charlize. It actually reminded me of Zendaya at the emmys, but a cheap and messy rip off

  23. Pulplove says:

    I think Charlize’s got the perfect face shape to pull off a glorious short hair look. But the current hair cut just doesn’t do it. I loved her look in The Astronaut’s Wife that was just beautiful.

    As to the dress, yeah, no, the lime green just hurts the eyes and the whole cut is unflattering and boring.

  24. lucy2 says:

    I weirdly kind of like Charlize’s? I don’t know.
    Helen looks great as always. She wears that style a lot, and it works for her. The color is gorgeous.
    Awkwafina’s isn’t my thing, but I am not surprised that’s what she selected.
    Anna looks good but the dress is too casual.

  25. Sarah says:

    So this is what Awkwafina actually sounds like when she’s receiving a prestigious award in front of a predominantly white audience? A far cry from her whole persona and her blaccent not that long ago. Qwhite interesting.

  26. Marianne says:

    If it werent for the puff sleeves, I think Dakpta’s dress would have been nice. Otherwise it felt too much like little girl playing dress-up.

  27. Green Desert says:

    I like the shade of green in Charlize’s dress and I like that color paired with black. But something about the dress is off. I think of what Tim Gunn used to say on Project Runway: “It looks like student work.”

  28. Nicegirl says:

    I think Helen Mirren is in the best Dior, rather than Charlize.

  29. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    CT looks like she was caught in her closet changing. Helen for the win.

  30. Seri says:

    The green part of the dress makes the total look very cheap for Charlize. Helen, on the other hand, looks like Russian queen.

  31. judith a reeder says:

    Not a fan!!!

  32. Mar says:

    The fashion was awful last night. I can’t remember anyone looking great but Cate
