You Tell Us: Are Beyonce & Jennifer Bests or Worsts?

01/16/2007 at 04:35 PM ET

Let’s chalk this one up to beauty being in the eye-of-the beholder. During the Golden Globes, the concensus here at StyleWatch was that head-to-toe gold sequins ended up looking more showgirl than Dreamgirl on nominee Beyonce Knowles, while Jennifer Love Hewitt looked oddly matronly in her gilded ballgown. Others, like our favorite style guru Tim Gunn, thought they were among the evening’s standouts. Maybe it’s just us, but we prefer just a little bit of sparkle, like the splashes of beading on Jennifer Garner‘s white gown to the elaborate trim on Jennifer Lopez‘s Marchesa gown rather than an all-out golden gown.

What about you: Do you like the all-metallic look? Would you vote Best or Worst for Beyonce and Jennifer?

Beyonce looked terribly uncomfortable in her too tight dress – in my opinion. Neither is a best in my book.

Diane on

I thought Jennifer Love Hewitt’s dress was actually quite beautiful on TV 9not in still photography) but it was too much. Great for the Oscars, but not the Globes.

Beyonce took her signiture style too, too far. She looked about a hundred times better in some the other award shows.

Kristen on

I think that Beyonce’s look was completely wrong and inapproriate too. She dressed like she was going to the Grammys or the VMA’s. I don’t think she understands what being elegant and subtle is. Her hair was wrong too. It DID look like a Vegas showgirl outfit and her cleavage was way too revealing.

Sarah on

both dresses were incredibly ugly

HELLO…For those of you who think that Beyonce’s dress was ugly common now??? Don’t be a hater..Her dress was beautiful, it fitted her well, the only attention grabber would be she really did position herself for that pose, and the hair was a bit full..for sure, but hey this is hollywood and that’s what’s expected from these stars, some celebrities work it more than others, at the end of the day, they all work it. I don’t understand when Elizabeth Taylor goes All bling, she is a godess, when Jenifer Lopez does it she is the immitation (younger version) of Elizabeth Taylor but when Beyonce does it, it’s considered “ugly” or “too much”, talk about double standard!!!At least she wears panties.

Beyonce looked nice. Not her best but nice. She looks comfortable. I don’t get the pose though. Jennifer though, YUCK! So hideous. Ever heard mirror.

Claudia on

Beyonce’s dress was far from classy. It’s not that she’s ugly, it’s her dress that brings out those bad vibes. I guess that she was trying to stand out anyway that she could because she knew she wasn’t going to win the Globe.

Jennifer Love Hewitt needs to grow up and get a stylist that knows how to work with her assets.

Marcia on

I’m not gonna mess with Beyonce here. She has the body for this gown (I’m full figured and would want to die to squeeze into it!!!) Well Jennifer Hewitt’s dress… what planet she on???

Amber on

Beyonce dunno what she was thinking, i know its the GOLDEN globes, but that dress was ridiculous, too sexy and too exposed. Then the playboy posing she was doin didnt help her at all. Im no expert hollywood stylist, but i could have done much better.

As for Jennifer, not her best dress, but she looked better than beyonce. On tv it actually looked better, the main problem is i dont think it photographed very well.

missp on

Man was I on point last week or what too. beyonce went gold foil crazy. she looks like a rach of gold teeth.And what in the gods name is she doing in the pictures? Does she have a itch? I think she forgot to take the tag off.
