What Was Vanessa Williams Thinking?

01/16/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Retro looks are usually glamorous shoe-ins for the red carpet — unless you are channeling Diana Ross in Mahogany. Or maybe Beyonce in the later stages of Dreamgirls? Whatever the inspiration, Vanessa Williams went for a totally hair-raising look at last night’s Golden Globes, complete with wild curls and braids. Vanessa is clearly a beautiful woman, but maybe a few less extensions would have been a better look. Tell us: What do you think of Vanessa’s hair? Is it a retro do or a total hair don’t?

Yes the hair was bad, she’s a gorgeous lady and her dress body and face looked lovely! Speaking of other bad moments. Could Jeremy Piven stop bringing his Mom as hjis date. It’s not sweet. Any ladies who have learnt a thing or two about men know the guy does it to help him pick up more chicks. Bring your Mommy and then you can have 5 ladies after the show if you know what I mean. If he brought some of the tv groupie skanks as his dates girls would see the PIG in the Mama’s boy clothing and he wouldn’t get anymore ladies. So he takes Mom to make him look like a sweetheart and he plays it up for all it’s worth and then goes bimbo bagging. I don’t buy any of the bull some men dish out, they’re so full of it! I’m married and my amazing hubby and I laugh at these dinks, too bad some girls buy it!

A little professional jealousy? Maybe America’s win has inspired Vanessa to get some ‘ugly’ in her. Well done!

Looks ok to me………although, what doesnt look ok, is the dead animal she decided to wrap herself in!! Will celebrities ever learn???!!!

Gorgeous woman but hair from hell and it ages her.

In her defense, that’s a really bad and unflattering picture of her.

It photographs terrible, but on tv it looked much better. Thogh I would have never taken such a risk.
