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?

I think all three of these ladies look beautiful, especially Jennifer Garner and Salma Hayek. On a different note I was really looking forward to seeing what Angelina Jolie was going to wear and was utterly dissapointed. Her dress was drab and boring and that color was nothing less than depressing. I also thought the gold jewelary really didn’t compliment it either, quite frankly I thought it was hideous. I just don’t understand why she can’t venture out and wear colors other than different shades of black and white.

Dresses described left to right: a white sheet with sparkles, a white sheet in gathers, and hanging white drapes (on a body the color of a broasted chicken). Include Drew Barrymore’s white bath towel… all shapeless white blahhh’bs. It’s simply amazing that so much money and effort is spent on making women unattractive… a whole industry promoting white sheets~ now That’s entertaining!

lol yes thats jennifer garner and she is married to ben and has a child with him and yes she looked very nice so did the others, but i don’t no if i would wear white.

I thought Salma looked so sultry and sexy…she carried herself so well in that dress…however, I did think the dress kind of made her look short and stocky…the color was wonderful on her dark skin, just the fit was “ok”.

yes the puzzle piece is for Autism Speaks, the charity that the head of NBC is heavily involved in. So everyone who has a show on NBC wore the puzzle to show their support.

I think all of the dresses are beautiful. I also think that a nice updo would have complimented Jennifer Garner’s dress alot more.
