Red Carpet Trendwatch: White Gowns

01/16/2007 at 01:40 PM ET

Forget Madison Avenue — last night’s Golden Globes red carpet took its fashion cues from ancient Greece by the look of things. From Jennifer Garner’s silver spangled Gucci to Hayden Panettiere’s Monique Lhuillier gold-belted gown, the stars looked like goddesses in their long white gowns with metallic accents. Or there were those who went for clean but never simple white, like Salma Hayek, Azzaro-clad Kate Winslet or Ellen Pompeo in futuristic Versace. We expect to see a lot more ivory, creams, and just bright white with the SAGs less than two weeks away! Tell us: Do you like the white gowns? Is this a look you would wear?

Well, they are very nice looking but I’d be afraid to drink or eat anything incase I’d spill something on it! I wouldn’t want a train though b/c it would get really dirty dragging on the floor. White shows everything. Oh, and Ray, what are you talking about??? Ben is married.

enigma on

RAY, her name is Jennifer Garner and she is married to Ben Affleck and they have a little girl named Violet.

All these women glow and look beautiful!

And, yes, I would wear all of these dresses…….they look so romantic!

This is unrelated, but I have seen a few pictures of the actors/actresses wearing a blue puzzle piece.
I tried to find what this stood for, but have
been unsuccessful. Does anyone know?

Candi on

Yes, they all look absolutely beautiful. I don’t care what anyone says, I think Ellen looked fabulous in her Versace clad gown. Salma, always beautiful and Jen looks beautiful as well. I didn’t get to see Hayden’s dress though, but I’m sure she looked gorgeous.

Marisol on

Jennifer Gariner dress looked like a Walmart dress! it was awful! Also did Angelina Jolie and Toni Collette wear the same dress, but different colors?

KJ on

Jennifer Garner is absolutely beautiful. She has such a glow and natural look about her. She and Ben are such a cute couple. I’m not crazy about Selma’s gown. It doesn’t seem to fit right although she is a beautiful woman. Ellen’s gown is a little too simple! I don’t know that I’d wear a white gown but I admire women that do!

Chrissy on

The color isn’t the problem with these dresses…it’s the fit! None of these dresses are flattering!

The puzzle piece has something to do with autism (sp?)
