THERE was so much rain that everyone thought it was the London Baftas not the Golden Globes on Sunday night, but no matter. The dresses were the prettiest, most tasteful and elegant weve seen in years. The pressure for the big designers to dress the biggest (or should that be smallest?) stars has never been greater, given that even Chanel and Versace are struggling to keep the wolf from the atelier, and because of this there were no risky experiments or garish colours. We had a lot of black, worn as a mark of respect to those suffering in Haiti. But there were also a lot of super safe pale, sherbert hues in fairtytale flounces. The mood was pretty and feminine rather than one of out-and-out glamour. While the British stars held up rather well, it was the grandes dames who stole the show. BRIGHT AND BOLD * Award-winner Sandra Bullock wore a sheer dress with bandaged bodice by Bottega Veneta that looks pretty in a Quality Street sweet wrapper sort of way. Love the messy up-do. * Cameron Diaz always injects colour and glamour into an occasion. I love this duchesse satin draped dress by Alexander McQueen, although the black shoes are too harsh and wintery. * Leona Lewis looks perfectly at home on the Hollywood red carpet in strapless lilac Roberto Cavalli. Love, too, the honey-coloured hair. * I adore Emily Blunt, and this sugar pink chiffon confection by Dolce & Gabbana is very pretty. My only gripe is her hair: did she not have time to wash it? SHEER & SPARKLY * Heidi Klum in a Roberto Cavalli confection as pale and insubstantial as a cloud, with Louboutin clutch. One of the few stars to sport a diamond necklace; this one is by Lorraine Schwartz. * Kate Hudson looks a little too bridal in this Marchesa origami dress, while the shoes are ridiculous; she could barely hobble down the red carpet. Love the hair, though. * Christina Aguilera looks polished in pale pink Versace. My only bug bear is that she looks a little nude without a statement necklace - jewels were generally restrained on Sunday night, due to the sombre mood following the earthquake in Haiti. SACK THE STYLIST * Can someone please force feed Calista Flockhart a Krispy Kreme? This silver column by Alberta Ferretti needs a bit of body to give it shape, and an injection of colour somewhere. * I am not a big fan of peach, or too many bows for that matter. Nicole Kidman might be wearing silk by Nina Ricci, but she looks as though she has been shopping in Debenhams. * Drew Barrymore looks bald, and far too washed out in this Atelier Versace gown and Roger Vivier clutch. VAMPS AND VIXENS * Jennifer Aniston abandoned her girl-next-door image for full-on appeal: a black draped asymmetric gown slashed to her knickers by Valentino, with strappy sandals and bed head hair. Stunning. * Kate Winslet faltered last year at the Oscars by choosing an over fussy dress, but this column dress, again by Yves Saint Laurent, is perfect, hugging her figure without being showy. I love the hair and the discreet Tiffany jewels. * Halle Berrys black Kaufman Franco gown with lace inserts is actually cut lower than the plunging neckline dress worn by Mariah Carey, but somehow she manages to look far classier. * Penelope Cruz is my best dressed of the night. She looks undeniably, unforgettably Spanish, in a lace and chiffon vintage gown by Armani Prive. Daily Mail
