Golden Globes 2015 Red Carpet Review

Golden Globes 2015 Red Carpet Review

All I can say is – What happened to the days of the Wow Factor? The red carpet these days seems to be filled with a lot of two things - safe and same.

For example:

The prom dress

What’s up with the prom dress material, and why is everyone wearing it? The color and cut of these gowns are gorgeous, but the material – Yikes!

And this is where the prom dress trend went terribly wrong…

And to think, one of these ladies is a part of the Fashion Police :( G.R., This look calls for a citizen’s arrest!

Peek-a-boo…

peek-a-boo

Yes, we see you AGAIN with the never-ending trend of the peek-a-boo crotch!

This drives me insane every time I look at it…

Conchita Wurst

This look received rave reviews, and I really would like someone to explain to me WHYYYYYYY!

Loved the dress…

But then, what happened? From left to right, we have a blank canvas; over-styling; and, of all of the looks for natural hair, someone decided on a lopsided, snatched-back bush! (Yes, I feel some kind of way about it because that’s my girl!)

And the worst…

Need I explain why?
