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 that white gowns make these women look so classy. Not everyone can pull off white like that, but the one’s that do it make it look amazing. It’s so clean and pure.. making them look awesome. They look so confident. I would absolutely wear white… :)

LOL I think Jennifer Garner looked BEAUTIFUL!! and since when do they sell dresses like this in Wal-Mart?!! ;)

I think they all looked lovely. Ellen’s scary-skinny, her castmates (KatH, ChandraW,)looked much better than her.
AND Drew Barrymore was not wearing a white bath towel. It was pink! and she was pretty in it!

They all look beautiful. White definitely is a clean and elegant color.

Good to see not everyone thought Jennifer Garner looked good because I thought she looked terrible. The dress made her look so thin and gaunt with no curves at all. It was a terrible fit for her although the dress itself was pretty.
Salma always looks great although this probably wasn’t the best dress for her either. Ellen Pompeo looked the best out of the lot but it still wasn’t that great.

I thought Drew looked fabulous in her PINK goddess gown. I don’t care for Jennifer or Salma’s dresses, but I loved Ellen’s!

I read Angelina’s dress is a St. John’s creation, whom she has a contract with… maybe the reason for it?

Jennifer Garner is gorgeous and I usually love all the gowns she wears, but yesterday I found the dress was awful,very simple and weird and made her look very thin with no boobs, no butt, no curves…..not sexy at all, definetely not……I mean she didnt have to go dressed like Beyonce to show she’s sexy, but at least something more revealing, like Drew Barrymore for example!
That was definetely a bad choice!

Jackie on
