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?

no Jen’s gown wasn’t very flattering, but WAL-MART? No. She usually wears such amazing gowns. This was a disappointment, but not because of the whole dress. It was just the top part.

Y’all are crazy. Just because it isn’t skin tight and showing tons of skin doesn’t mean it doesn’t fit right and doesn’t look beautiful. Salma’s dress looks like she has a bed sheet just draped over her, which is very sexy, only she can pull it off. ellen is taking a risk but looks classy and elegant, i wouldn’ve done a different hairdo although. and Jennifer looks KILLER in this dress! She has a figure that can pull off something just hanging on her and she looks fab!!

Kate on

I love the white dresses…absolutely stunning!

Jennifer Sanchez on

I think the only one that looks good is the one in the middle. Jennifer Garner looks ugly and too skiny. And the other looks OK but not omg

Cheryl on

Its not the color, its the fit. Bennifer2’s dress looks like a night gown, Selma’s is unflattering on the top, but Ellen’s looks fantastic!!!!

Hannah on

i thought the white gowns were pretty..but i personally loved reese witherspoons gorgeous yellow gown.

Melissa Malcolm on

Let start with Jen: bad fit…she has no check to carry the look off..the top half of this dress just had too much fabric hanging.

Salma: love the top half of this dress but the middle down stinks…she’s short and this dress just made her look shorter

Angelina: she looked like a granny who has baked herself in the sun for far too long. Do you rember the old lady in “there is something about Mary,” she reminded me of her.
Her hair color was all wrong it overpowed the dress. The frown on her face all night was inappropriate, she seemed pissed off all night. Did y’all see her interview with Ryan, what’s the big deal about talking about how you got ready for your night on the town or talking about her kids. Brad, he looks old and exausted and it just made the two of them look acquard on the red carpet.

I like white gowns on the right figures. If your heavy set,
it’s usually not complimentry to wear a white dress.
