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 went for her usual showgirl look… it’s getting really tired in the ’07.. time for something new babygirl… and it’s magazines like People who always give her unnecessary accolades that make her head swell up so bad to do stupid poses like that…

Beyonce looked terrible and was over the top in her poses. It was terrible.

I loved Jennifer- she looked stunning. I saw it on TV and thought it was an amazing dress- just beautiful. I watched it with other people and they all said WOW! look at that dress it is gorgeous! It was a very sophisticated look and it think it was much better then some of the others!

Both were complete and utter disasters. Beyonce needs to realize this is an awards even, not a music video, and JLH, looks short and bulky. AWFUL CHOICES, LADIES!

Y’all need to give Jennifer a break. She’s cute and she looks like the ALL AMERICAN GIRL.(HOWEVER her dress is way over the top.) She tries too hard. AS For MISS BEYONCE: MY WORD? What the heck was that. MISS TINA definitely has to go to more fashion school ( if she went to any.)

I think thae dress beyonce wore for the Golden Globes was not the best choice for her. She looked better for the premier of Dream Girls.

I think Beyonce and Jennifer actually looked beautiful, minus the fact that they both appear to have been attacked by some sort of Gold Tin Foil monster. I think the ideas of the dresses are gorgeous but Beyonce’s was a little too shiny and risque and Jennifer’s look too much like tin foil. If Jennifers was chocolate brown silk from the waste down it would have looked much more sophisticated. And if Beyonce toned hers down it would have been gorgeous. I definitely would not say they were the worsts though.

Jennifer’s dress is ugly.

But for Beyonce, I thought her dress was ok. She is into that sorta stuff– very glitzy and glam. But if you’re going to wear a dress like that, you have to make the other parts of your outfit softer. She should have gone for simpler shoes, simpler earrings, and a softer hairdo. The whole thing altogether is just too much.

are you serious?? You’re supposed to wear something golden? You were kidding right??

I did not care for either dress at all.

Beyonce: Maybe the same dress in some other color would have been better suited the Golden Globes (I bet this dress would have been gorgeous in a navy blue or eggplant!!). She should have saved this one for the Grammys, where it would have been a much more appropriate choice. For a “newcomer” trying to be taken seriously as an actress – way too much, and not a very smart choice.

Jennifer – Hasn’t she done this style before? It seems she always wears a poofy skirt w/fitted top. Someone must have told her once before that this style was attractive on her, cuz it seems she’s always wearing the same dress! Jennifer is a very pretty, YOUNG girl – she needs to start dressing more age appropriate and wear colors that will flatter her.

As much as I disliked both of these dresses, neither one was as bad as Cameron Diaz’s gown – What was SHE thinking?????

merissa on

what were their stylists thinking? clearly they were not. Jen looks good from the sholders up the dress was a little scary a little too much. Beyonce needs to learn how to pose on the red carpet…she was just too much from the hair to the dress and that horrible pose, just way to exagerated
