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?

hey on

i think that Evangeline Lily is so pretty i think she should go with a sexy dress but not trashy. she looks good in anything but i think Ellen Pompeo is ugly. her eyebrows are to high but she has a good figure so she can pull a any dress off. Versace and chanel are my choses

Lindy on

Ohhhhh that gold Elie Saab gown is to die for! Evangeline could really pull that off. Ellen is just drab…even in bright colours.

agree on

i think they are both pretty and whatever they choose will look good on them

Dee on

The Elie Saab and the versace gowns are amazing!! Wow!!

Kelly on

OMG Evangeline Lily is soooo pretty!!! I CANT GET OVER IT!!! AHHHHHHH I WISH I COULD LOOK LIKE HER!!


Ellen should definitely do something about her hair. Evangeline should wear simple but elegant dress. I don’t like the (chest) style of her dress on the picture.

Selden on

Evangeline Lily is to die for! She would look good in anything, but I love the gold!


i don’t think it matters what they wear as long as ellen does NOT put her hair up like that again!

KT fr Cda on

They are both pretty. I’m sure they will look good in whatever they choose.

Quinci on

I don’t really care what they wear. As long as they look nice.

Lisa on

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.

Diana on

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.

Erin on

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.

Alfie on

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..

TigMode on

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!

Rebecca on

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!

Danielle on

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.

BC on

I dont like the way these womans arms are so built why cant they have more lady like arms they look like stick man arms

Liza on

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”.

C on

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!

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.

Leilani on

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!

Angela on

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

R on

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.

Jessie on

Definitely Evangeline Lilly. She always has the best dresses!

Taryn on

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.

Kristen on

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.

Allison on

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.

Lizzi on

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.

Megan on

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