Frock Fridays

Boy, there was a lot of beige at the Golden Globes last weekend!  While perusing the pap snaps, my eye was drawn to some interesting pops of color on the red carpet - thank you, Paula Patton, for bringing the fun - but, mostly, I saw beige with a sprinkling of black and other somber hues.

There's nothing wrong with beige per say but, like with any other color, there's a bad way and a good way to wear it...

The bad way: Amanda Peet looks like she's wearing a vintage tablecloth.  Or possibly she found a dust ruffle that, when she took it off her bed, managed to multiply like some sort of prehistoric single-celled organism that eventually will become a turtle.  I don't know what she's doing here, but I don't like it.

The good way: Piper Perabo's Theyskens Theory frock complements her skin tone well.  It adheres to a classic princess shape with its full skirt and round neckline, but flirts with a bit of sexy by including a sheer panel down the center of the bodice.  She looks like she's comfortable and having a good time, which is always a bonus during awards season!

What were your fashion hits and misses of the Golden Globes?
