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 very beautiful, yes she did go too “over the top” but its not THAT bad, if someone else wore it maybe THEN you’d like it, yea what is with some of you out there? She looks good almost every time and you guys say she went too over the top?, come on dont be so jealous, she looks great, i dont get that pose though, yea she looks like a hooker, anyways she still looks pretty good ,except for the pose

As for Jennifer, she is NOT beautiful at all!! i saw a picture of her on tmz without makeup and she looked sooo ugly!like a horse!she always dresses hideously too, and her hair’s wierd,this dress isnt that bad though, its ok kinda ugly, but probably MUCH better than some other dresses people out there wore

Beyonce is beautiful!! No matter what she wears Beyonce always looks great! Now Jennifer Love Hewitt looks ridiculous! She is a pretty girl with a great body, but the dress is awful and doesn’t do anything for her! Jennifer fire your stylist!! :)

i never thought that Beyonce had good taste. although i love glitter and sparkly thinks she just over does it all the time. she looks tacky most of the time and i wish she would cut that weave/hair of hers lets get a new look not the big Texas hair she usually wears. I think Beyonce tries to dress like an older woman and not her age. I think her mom’s HORRIBLE taste has influenced her too much.
Jennifer Love Hewitt has yet to dress nice for any awards show she is another one that can’t dress her age.

Boy doesn’t Beyonce just loves herself! She looks silly in that pose.

I think Beyonce was dressing and posing for attention. I think she feels threatened by all of Jennifer Hudson’s attention and she wanted to remind her that “I’m already a star. I have 9 grammys.” Blah blah blah. It was a cry for attention.

Jennifer looked great… Beyonce was beyond tacky… she looked like Mariah! and that is NOT a compliment!

scary. beyonce needs to tone down the ‘tude. i hope she’s seen this pic and realizes that she looked ridiculous. she’s starting to become overexposed the way that jlo did a couple years ago.

Beyonce looked awful and she is normally such a stand out. This was a stand out in a Mariah Carey kind of way – ugh! As for Jennifer, she has a gorgeous figure that can pull off something sexier but I have to say that the cut is beautiful and the coloring is amazing against her skin tone and hair color. What wouldn’t I pay to be able to pull that off!

Truthbetold on

Honestly i think jennifer looks okay. It is not her best, though personally i have not liked the short little girl dresses she has been wearing lately. But i think she looks good. The dress compliments her for the most part. I just really dont like it from the waits down. Puff and ruffles at the bottom do not go hand and hand . If the dress just went straight it would have looked good. I think she was trying to go for a GROWN UP look here. Beyonce looks awful. I dont like how she has so much attitude. I used to like her but lately she has just been to much. i am sick of hearing about her. I mean come on she could have still had her signature style but gave it a classy edge, that dress is for a Vegas show girl. If she seriously is considering being known as a renown actress she needs to start acting like it more. Her pose looks like she is trying to scratch her back. Her hair looked awful too. I like straight hair it just looks to long and not taken care of.
