Thursday Thirteen, Edition 22

Thirteen Golden Globe Fashions,
Complete With Reviews!


1. Chloë Sevigny, Ginnifer Goodwin, Jeanne Tripplehorn from Big Love

Did your mothers never tell you to stand up straight and present yourselves like ladies? Perhaps I would have given you one paw up had the three of you at least smiled. I'm not even going to get into those so-called "gowns".

2. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

What more can you say about these two? They're glamourous and graceful, and let's not forget, charitable.

3. Eva Longoria

I appreciate a woman in a well-tailored dress, especially one with so much back. Let's not forget the tramp stamp I see peeking out either. My motor's purring so definitely...


4. Cameron Diaz

That dress is begging me to tear at it with my claws. The only thing sillier than its ruffles is the black hair and matching ribbon around the waist. Definitely...

5. Sheryl Crow

Now here's a woman who always looks sophisticated. With her sun-kissed face, wavy hair, and fantastic gown, she's surely...


6. Vanessa Williams

That hair is something else, honey! I love it! The gown is even better, but that fur piece? Hmm...you know how I feel about wearing fur. Still, I'll give you...

7. Mary J. Blige and Justin Timberlake

Justin, I don't think you look half bad. I appreciate the suit. Really I do. Ms. Blige: Normally, I would have nothing but love for you, but showing your tats (Exception: tramp stamp) while in a formal gown is a serious no-no. That's why I give you both...


8. Sienna Miller

Could you look more fantastic? Is it possible? I just want to curl on your princess lap and purr away forever. You got my...


9. Beyonce Knowles

Consider me confused. I don't know how you sat in this dress all evening long without tearing it even further up the front. I think I might have liked it more had there been no split. Sorry, but...


10. Penelope Cruz

Hello, hot Latina mama. You look ready to dance the flamenco all night long with this gorgeous gown. How about you carry me onto the dance floor and whisk me away? You know you have my...


11. Hayden Panettiere

Aren't you the vision of a Greek goddess? You know, since my name is Greek in origin, I am technically Greek as well. Why don't we cuddle?


12. Jennifer Gardener

I don't know how I am feeling about this, Jennifer. On one paw, I like the design. On the other, I just think you could have done better. Because I can't make up my mind...


13. Patricia and Rosanna Arquette

What is it with the Arquette family? Patricia, I think you're simply fabulous in Medium, but come on? Leather around the boobies? How does that even work with the rest of your gown? And Rosanna, the lace only makes you look older than you really are. Ladies, I'm sorry, but...

Awesome TT! I missed the show, so I'm glad I caught your review. : )
Thanks!

Mine's up, 13 words my 4 year old mispronounces!

colleen said...

I agree. That was fun!

Derby said...

I don't agree with Vanessa Williams. I think she looked like a poodle.

Otherwise, I think you did good by dear Zeus.

Anonymous said...

A fun list.

My 13 are up.

Caryle said...

Excellent eye for fashion, Zeus! I'm not so sure I agree with your assessment of Vanessa William's hair, though. :)

Zeus said...

Derbie and Caryle: I can't help it. I like a woman who can pull off big hair. Hangs his head in shame...

Zeus:
We agreed on EVERY SINGLE ONE! Again, you're on the cutting edge of fashion reporting. For you I say, Two Paws WAY Up!

I must mention that Ms. Williams looks about due for a "lion cut" ... What would Wilhelmina Slater say?

DMM

PeeSss: My TT is up, too.

Bone said...

Wow, I feel like I watched the entire Golden Globes now. Thanks!

Sienna is hot!

Just stumbled upon your site and I so needed the laugh. Thanks so much for it! What a fun TT!

Mine is up if you care to look.

You did a better job that ET did!

Great post. I often wonder what these people are thinking when they pick a dress out and then pay over $10,000.

Thanks for stopping by my TT. I think if we go with same gender classes next year it will be optional to see how it goes. I feel it will help our oversexed, goo goo eyed teens, to concentrate more. This will only be for core subjects also.

That is a great review. They did one in the paper the other day but no where near as good as yours.

They said Camereon Diaz looked like she was wearing a wedding cake! I like your discription better. Love Sienna Miller's dress but that hair!

Anonymous said...

Very entertaining TT, thanks for sharing! I vote for Brad and Angelina, they look stunning. But then again: they could wear rubbish bags and still look great. :-)
My TT has 13 words to describe me.

Love this thanks for your comments. Happy T13

Oh this world of celebrities is so far away from my roads.
I do like Sheryl ... in my CD player tough.

Thanks for this little review, without it I wouldn’t pay attention on Golden Globe at all!

Happy TT!

Great Thursday Thirteen! I also missed the show, so it was good to catch up. You have a very keen eye for fashion!

Jill said...

I'll have to agree with you except, maybe, on Eva!! the back sure looks great, but the dress doesn't fit her well!!! And Hayden, is that girl is capabalbe of doing it wrong??
My tt is up!!

DivaP said...

Great list Zeus! I have to disagree with #6 though. I think you just picked her because she was trying to pass herself off as a lion ...

Anonymous said...

Could that be...is that...am I the model for "2 Hisses Down?" I am honored!

• I address Vanessa in my TT today, but not favorably.

• That's leather on Patricia Arquette's dress? I thought it was duct tape strategically placed to censor out her nips.

I'm giving this post 1 Hiss Down and 1 Paw Up. The Hiss is because I disagree with some of your opinions, but the Paw is because my teeth are featured in your rating system.

;) Nicely done!

Chris said...

Excellent TT :-)

Charlotte said...

Fantastic list!! Happy TT.

Crystal said...

One of the best lists I have seen so far today - and you are right on for all of them!!!

Nancy said...

I think your reviews are spot on!

Eva was HOT! I thought most of the dresses were great. What was up w. Beyonce? She usually is so much better than that.

Cheysuli said...

Mostly it's a great list. I think you were right on about Jennifer Garner and the Arquettes particularly! A couple of others I think you were just flirting...

Anonymous said...

is you shur that was rosanna arquette? she looked more like Morgan Fairchild. - Meezer Mom

Anonymous said...

I love your list Zeus. I have to agree with some of the others regarding Vanessa's hair. Though it would make a good cat toy...

Anonymous said...

I don't usually watch this show, but I do like to be "in the loop" with the fashion review! I agree with you on all counts especially with the Cameron Diaz number. arrrr,meeeooowww , if I were also a feline like you, I would love to scratch on all those ruffles...You are the best fashion critic,ever! =)

George, Tipper, Max & Misty said...

Wonderful Zeus! We only disagree on Ms Williams. She's looked better.

Anonymous said...

I agree, on all accounts! That doesn't even look like Cameron Diaz, she looks like Michele Pfiffer, and anorexic.

Anonymous said...

Too funny!
Loved the commentaries

Haley-O said...

Great, great list!!! Really fun, and I LOVE the cat aspect. LOVE! Eva's dress looked much better to the back, than to the front....

Ocean Blue Fire said...

haha! :-)

That was great! I didn't even know that was Cameron Diaz. She looks really different!

tiggerprr said...

Let's see if Blogger will let me comment now...

Zeus, you are a great man-cat! Who else could write so eloquently about underappreciated authors in one post, and give such an accurate critique of fashion in the next? I give you 2 paws up and an ear scratching! :)

Anonymous said...

LOL! Wow Zeus, you are quite the fashion critic. Great list.

Anonymous said...

Great review! I agree with most of them!

Anonymous said...

Zeus,

well done, Hayden whatsherface would get 4 paws up from me. Is it me though or does Roseanna Arquette look more scraggly then usual?

DK & Fluffies said...

Sorry - Vanessa gets 2 hisses and four thumps for wearing fur!

Leah said...

I caught the show but not the red carpet thing (if there was one on TV). Great review. Thanks for shariing this and for dropping by.

This is probably the only way I will see any of these people lol. Thanks for the insight. Happy TT. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Some of dem skeletens wif skin on dem make us want to go eat some stinky goodness so we don't look like that.

Anonymous said...

Zeus I like your ratings, your pretty good at it. I agree with you especially Cameron Diaz. That white dress was ridiculous. Two paws up for you Zeus.

Ayatollah Mugsy said...

Well done, Zeus. You are tough but fair.

she said...

The best part of the show is the fashion and the red carpet.

Jenny Ryan said...

Excellent review!

Janet said...

Chloë Sevigny looks absolutely scary in that picture *shivers*

spyscribbler said...

I am totally in love with Angelina's dress. And you're dead on with Jennifer Gardner: she looks great as always, but ... she could've been fabulous. She could've done better!

Anonymous said...

Your commentary is too much fun!

I would have thought Cameron would have wanted to look much better than that being at the same venue with her ex. If that was the best dress that she was offered can you imagine the ones that she turned down?

dawn said...

I didn't know that cats were so fashion conscious. I agree with all of your reviews. Great job!

At the time I said: penelope cruz' dress is beautiful if you ask me!
