Evangeline Lilly & Ellen Pompeo: What We Think They Should Wear to the Golden Globes

01/10/2007 at 05:00 PM ET

Both nominated for Best Actress in a Television Series (Drama), Evangeline Lilly and Ellen Pompeo are two of the hottest and most stylish stars on television. These primetime leading ladies never fail to wow on the red carpet, both tending to favor long, strapless dresses in jewel tones. Lost‘s Evangeline goes for softer, flowing shapes in muted tones — and almost never with embellishment. We could easily picture her in this cobalt Carlos Miele creation, this 24-karat Elie Saab stunner, or for a more subtle look, this navy Derek Lam gown. Grey’s Anatomy‘s Ellen Pompeo take a little more risk, playing with beading, cutouts and proportion. She could show off her lithe form in this corseted Versace gown, go vibrant in this orange Oscar de la Renta, or play it safe in this black Monique Lhuiller frock. Ladies, feel free to take our ideas! Tell us: What do you think that Ellen and Evangeline will wear? Who do you think will look best at the Golden Globes?

I love love love both Ellen Pompeo and Evangeline Lily!! LOST and Greys Anatomy are my altime favorite shows and they are both gorgeous… Ellen should be a little less severe with her hair and wear it more like Evangeline’s.

I think they are both pretty women and would look great in most of these dresses but I think that Ellen Pompeo would look the best in the Monique Lhuiller dress – absolutely gorgeous. Evangeine Lilly’s choices weren’t as great so I would swtich and put her in the Oscar de la Renta. I think it is more her personality and would look great on her.

I think Evangeline is just beautiful and I think she would look amazing in the Carlos Miele dress, although the Elie Saab isn’t bad either. BTW – I love Lost and I hope she wins!!

As for Ellen, I think the simple black Monique Lhuiller dress is the way to go.

I like Evangeline wore green Elie Saab gown at Golden Globe last year..for this year why not try something COUTURE…she can choose Lacriox number or Carolina Harrera collection…

Oh Ellen, that Dior dress is perfect..but your hair a bit thight..

Regardless of which dresses they go for, hair is essential. Both would do well with a soft, upswept and more elegant hairdo. Ellen’s hair is way too severe in this pic, and Evangeline look likes she just stepped out of the shower and threw on a gown.

That Carlos Miele gown is amazing!

Out of the dresses People has chosen, I love the Carlos Miele for Evangeline- it would look stunning on her. For Ellen, I’d choose the orange Oscar de la Renta since she could pull off the bright color. They are both gorgeous women and I can’t wait to see what they wear to the show!

I would choose the cobalt Carlos Miele for Evangeline Lilly & The orange Oscar de la Renta for Ellen Pompeo; both these vibrant colored dresses would suit each lady well & would definately be a stand out at the Golden Globes.

I agree that Ellen needs to let the hair loose!

Those are my picks, & both ladys are lovely.

I would really love to Evangeline Lilly in Badgley Mischka. Their Spring ’07 collection has some fabulous looks. As for the gold Elie Saab, beautiful dress. Would be stunning in a different color. Gold seems a bit trite for the “Golden Globes”.

Love the Derek Lam gown for Evangeline Lilly — it would look great on her. On Ellen Pompeo, I’d love the orange Oscar de la Renta. Both actresses are lovely and all the gowns are beautiful. They both need new hairdos, though. I don’t really like the stringly hair look and Ellen Pompeo looks much better with her hair loose around her face. Can’t wait to see all the fashion at the Golden Globes. That’s the only reason I watch awards shows!
