Golden Globes 2009: Best Dressed

I've been watching the red carpet arrivals on TV and the pictures on ONTD... all I have to say is this is the Golden Globes of BEIGE. And other neutral colors. Way to be exciting stars. Anyway here are the standouts in my opinion:

First of all, best interviewer is Nancy Odell. She knows what she's doing. Calm, collected. The other ones on the other hand... well, let's just move on.

But back to best dressed-

Jenna Fischer. In a Zuhair Murad dress. I love her and she looks hot.

Madeline Zima. I don't know who this girl is but she looked really good in that dress. (Okay, i just IMDB'd her and she's in Californication. Yawnz. Still love her look though).

Kristin Scott Thomas. Work it girl. So elegant.

Anne Hathaway. In Armani Privé. This dress wasn't perfect but she was so striking and her hair looks so sleek and all together she is so old Hollywood glamor here that she deserves a spot.

Viola Davis. Look how her dress matches her skin tone. I love it.

Nick Jonas
. I know he gets singled out often lately (creepily, as he's youngest) but he really was the most sharply dressed Jonas Brother at the Golden Globes. I love the velvet pants+jacket combo. Risks pay off! Especially when you're young and good-looking and have people fawning at you from all directions of course. [He's the one on the right].

Freida Pinto and Dev Patel [middle and right]. I love these bitches- Dev ever since Skins and Freida (here wearing Christian Lacroix) since I saw Slumdog Millionaire. Hollywood better get them some good jobs now. I'm watching you Hollywood! Anyway they looked nice and fresh-faced tonight.

Here's hoping for even more (much more) exciting and risky (in a good way) dresses and suits in the Oscars.

New SKINS Coming Soon!

... But to the UK, not America. Not to worry, those Brits will put the videos up online in no time. At least they better because I love this show to death. I was afraid about the new cast, but now I think it will be a breath of fresh air. There is only so much crazy shit you can do with one cast before you start running out, you know.

Some characters:

Naomi Campbell. "A beautiful idealist"

Effie. Soon her "home life falls apart."

Karen Mclair. "A firecracker with big dreams of becoming famous." New Cassie, yes/yes?

The new series (Third season, new kids, except for Effie who was Tony's sister) premieres January 22nd.

Here's the full trailer:

I can't wait!
