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 Evangeline’s sense of style. Whatever she wears it’s simple and comfortable yet elegant. She’s a classic, down to earth girl. As for Ellen, I thought the dark blue dress she wore for the Primetime Emmy Awards was just gorgeous! It was very flattering. Everyone is always commenting on how thin she is, but that dress gave her boobs and curves. I thought she looked great. Her pick for last year’s Golden Globes, not so brilliant. As for the winner of this contest. Evangeline! I’ve loved everything she’s worn to award shows over the past 2 years. My favorite is the green dress she wore to the 2006 Golden Globes. Very flattering.

I cannot WAIT for the Golden Globes! I definitely have a huge girl crush on Evangeline, and I saw Ellen on Oprah and she was really sweet. I’m obsessed with Lost and never miss Greys so I like both these ladies, and can’t wait to see what they’re wearing. Good for them!

I LOVE Ellen Pompeo & I this Versace would be great on her, something in a gorgeous blue, or dazzling deep green!

I would love to see Ellen in a very flow possibly Versache or Oscar De La Renta gown. She has a great upper torso so she pulls off strapless dresses great, but for the Globes, I think she’d look nice and elegant in an off the-shoulder gown. As for Evangeline, I’d love to see her in something with thick straps, but still sleeveless. Also something light, since we always see her in darker shades.

Definitely Evangeline Lilly. She always has the best dresses!

Both women have downplayed their looks for their respective characters, so it is always fun to see them dressed up. Evangeline has an earthy, fresh appeal. But, Ellen sparkles. She has a glint in her eye that makes her glow. Plus, her frame is better suited for evening wear. Evangeline looks better dressed down in jeans etc.

Evangeline should wear a beautiful shade of green, it really brings her eyes out. Ellen has very seductive peircing eyes, I think she should wear something a little more soft colored and textured to bring it out.

Ellen should wear something blue or green to accentuate her sparkling eyes, and maybe have a softer updo. I loved the purple velvet, it could have looked ridiculous, but she pulled it off so beautifully. A strapless gown would be best for her! I don’t think either of the chosen dresses are convincing, though…
I’d love to see Evie in the Miele dress, if she is daring, or in a cream-colored dress.

I think Evangeline would look stellar in the Carlos Miele dress…it would definitely make her look even more gorgeous than she already is! As for Ellen…I think the Monique Lhuiller dress is the way to go.

Evangeline Lilly’s arms are so HOT! I don’t care what anyone says!
