Laura Dern in Saint Laurent at the Golden Globes: one of her worst looks or striking?

As you know, Kaiser calls Laura Dern her nemesis. If you want to know more about that, we talked about it on our podcast on episode #37 and this link is queued up to that part. She says Laura Dern overacts and that she rubs her the wrong way. I’ve always found Dern harmless, but I used to like her more and am now noticing the things that Kaiser mentions! Plus Enlightened was hard to take and I didn’t watch Big Little Lies. Dern won best supporting actress for Marriage Story last night, which could mean that she’s going to get an Oscar. She’s been nominated twice before. Laura Dern might get an Oscar before Amy Adams. She was in Saint Laurent and I thought this look was a mess and her hair was awful, but Kaiser actually liked it! Go figure. It does look better in photos than it did on camera and I see the appeal of it now. I think her styling was throwing me off.


Leslie Bibb was in a tiered ruffle sequin gown by Honor. If you look at the bottom you can see that it’s actually ombre. I don’t think tiered ruffles ever work on dresses and there’s just too much going on with this and her face says it all.

Bel Powley is on The Morning Show and she’s 28. She looks a lot younger than that, especially in this terrible light blue sexy Little House dress by Miu Miu. This looks like something Zoe Kazan would wear.



Amy Poehler was in a full length long sleeve green sequin Sergio Hudson. This might look better with just a plain belt. The gold buckle is odd, but I do like her hair and makeup.

    Chunky gold bracelet aside, Laura looked fantastic.

  2. Sara says:

    Love Amy Poehler. She has such swagger.
    Just relieved Sam Rockwell isn’t with Michelle Williams.

  3. MyNAME says:

    I didn’t recognize Leslie Bibb at all, did she do something to her face?

    • Celebitchy says:

      She used to be a blonde!

    • amilou says:

      I was thinking the same thing about Sam Rockwell (not that I didn’t recognize him – but that he had gotten fillers or something). Maybe it’s just all that dark hair throwing me off. His head’s been shaved a lot in recent memory.

  4. Diana says:

    Laura’s hair is a frizzy tragic mess! Like wtf?! Lol

    • Green Desert says:

      As a person with naturally curly hair, I can tell you that Laura’s hair is 100% not frizzy here. 🙂

      I love her dress but am a sucker for sleeves on a dress. I hate most updos so I’m okay with her hair, maybe she could have done a half-up topknot though.

      • Kco says:

        Yes. Fellow curly hair-er here! I call this look my “recycled curls” look. It’s one day washed, and I wrap each large curl around the barrel of my curling iron, then shake loose.

        This is the hair I wish for on most days 😀

  5. Trish-a says:

    I’m overseas and couldn’t watch live. Is it just me or was this a messy year of dresses? The guys were more interesting.

  6. Chelsey says:

    Laura Dern was my favorite part of Marriage Story!

  7. PlaidSheets says:

    The too light foundation on Bibb and Powley is really jarring.

  8. Velvet Elvis says:

    I actually love Laura Dern’s dress but her overall styling was not good. I feel like the dress is begging for a more refined hair style…too much going on with the pattern in the dress and all that long rippling hair. And would it kill Dern to put on a set of lashes?

  9. SJR says:

    Stop the red eye shadow. It looks awful on everyone. Laura Dern needs a new shade of haircolor more subtle with light carmel highlights would be nicer, IMO. Hate LD dress it looks mid ’70s to me, never good.

  10. Anne says:

    I think Laura Dern is fine but her role in Marriage Story isn’t good enough to win, JLo is so much better in Hustlers.

  11. JanetFerber says:

    Laura nailed it and she won. Very underrated actress.

  12. Minxx says:

    Laura was fantastic in Big Little Lies, she stole every scene she was in. She was also good in Marriage Story. That being said, I hate all the looks here, particularly the blue dress.

  13. BANANIE says:

    I actually liked Laura Dern’s outfit – dress, hair, styling – but for a completely different event.

  14. MellyMel says:

    I like Laura, but she (or her character) annoyed me so much in Marriage Story. I love the dress though.

  15. lucy2 says:

    I like Laura’s dress a lot (and she’s one of my favorite actresses, LOL) but I agree the styling isn’t quite there.
    Bel is so pretty, but I don’t care for her dress.
    Amy looks great! I love the deep green.

  16. paranormalgirl says:

    I covet Laura’s dress. Like I want it in my closet now. I have this big important formal event to go to and I need it (I love the boho look, Deadhead that I am). *off to see if I can find anything similar*

  17. Sue M says:

    Laura looked amazing. I noticed when she was announcing/presenting that her amazing large gold earrings were articulated fishes. Slam dunk for me.

  18. Bread and Circuses says:

    Leslie Bibb’s tiered ruffles actually kind of work for me! It’s a fun look, for sure.
