Golden Globes 2012 Red Carpet Best & Worst Dressed

Julianne Moore in Chanel
It was Hollywood's biggest night leading up to the Oscars in February, and besides best actress winner Meryl Streep's half drunk speech and unfortunate Western housecoat dress from 1991, the Golden Globes red carpet was awash in too many pale colors and a handful of gorgeous looks. Leading the best dressed pack was Salma Hayek who literally sizzled hot in Gucci, an ethereal Charlize Theron in Dior, and a gleaming redhead Julianne Moore who looked stunning in a tiered Chanel gown. And then there were the heaps of fashion bores and misfires, particularly involving the color green (see swamp creature photos below). Chief among the fashion offenders was Kelly Osbourne's blue fishtail and swim floatie-sleeved Zac Posen gown, and newly engaged Jessica Biel wearing a custom wedding dress from the Tim Burton movie Corpse Bride. As you well know here at RedPoppy we take fashion taste very seriously! and therefore our top ten best dressed list actually consists of much less.... So here's who made our Best Dressed and Worst/What were they thinking? list of the Golden Globes...

I don't care how uber custom made this Prada creation is. Zooey Deschanel looks like a Green Lantern LED display screen....

In a rush to get to the ceremony, Freida Pinto quickly grabbed her teal crepe bedspread and fashionably secured it with a skinny belt.

It's Katy Perry....oops I mean a very frozen Nicole Kidman wearing what looks like studded palm fronds for support....

Dear (Golden Globe best supporting actress winner) Octavia Spencer, please fire your stylist. Thank you

 Amanda Peet just needs a curtain rod.....

Project Runway queen Heidi Klum, who possesses loads of bad fashion taste, is one runway project in this super blah and shapeless Calvin Klein sheath

Beverly Hills' most popular housewife Kyle Richards looks cliched and not cute in this red fishtail gown and tacky neck choker...
