Top Dresses from the 2014 Golden Globes

Ped appreciates a good hobby. Given mine is fashion, he appeases me by giving me his opinion on certain styles I show to him. Red carpet dresses may not be the manliest thing to comment on, but my husband's not stupid. I'm asking him to look at beautiful women in beautiful, sometimes revealing dresses. He goes with it... He's not here at the moment so I'll be interested in whether the man's point of view is similar to mine.

Best Dressed:    Margot Robbie -

Best Maternity Wear:     Kerry Washington -

The Where Did You Come From? Award:    Lupita Nyong'o
Lupita is 30. She graduated from Yale last year, appeared in an Oscar nominated movie this year, and is on everyone's fashion watch list. She's everything I've ever wanted to be with the perfect haircut and the most enviable clear chocolate skin. -

Best hosts:   Tina Fey and Amy Poehler
I love funny women. These ladies are strong, they're over 40, and they look better then they have every looked. I don't have a link, but they deserve one.

Honorable Mentions: High-fives to the over 40 crowd.

Sandra Bullock: Age 49 - First of all, Sandy's 49???? She ventured outside her normal go-to column dresses and it paid off. I love the style and colors on her.

Julianna Margulies, Age 47 - I typically am not a fan of Julianna's style. I think it's because of her hairstyle which is most often in retro wave with bright red lips or a very slicked back bun with a nude lip. Tonight's regime was a soft pulled back twist-thingy which really softened her face. This was actually my runner up to best dressed.

Julia Roberts: Age 46 - I will always love her. When your beauty is so thoroughly worn through your smile and honest love of laughter, what wouldn't look good on you? She has had some homely looks in the past but Stella got her groove back.

Sofia Vegara: Age 41 - The woman can wear a dress. I'm so glad it wasn't another mermaid gown.

Leslie Mann: Age 41 - Are you kidding me? These girls make me want to be in my 40's. Leslie's look is far from risky but it's beautiful and classic and could be brought up 20 years ago or 20 years from now and it would always be a best dressed on my list.

Kate Beckinsale: Age 40 - Bombshell. Always has been, always will be. -

Other thoughts:
Could Helen Mirren be more beautiful?? She's 68. Unbelievable.

I don't like doing worst dressed just because it's kind of mean. I did have some least favorites, but I'm only going to say because it wasn't my style. You can look them up if you want but I won't be providing links: Uma Thurman, Zooey Deschanel (her quirky style is something I admire but I feel like she's been getting work done and I don't like it), Drew Berrymore, Zoe Saldana, Paula Patton.
