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?

She looks like scary spice from back in the day…. scary lol!

I already commented on Vanessa’s hair. I agree with other people though that she and other celebrities should not wear fur, there are other options.

O NO. With all the money that woman should have, you think she’d have enough to pay for decent looking extentions? That looks like a wig you’d buy at an everyday costume store… nasty! But you are right, she is beautiful… and she’s aging very gracefully!

Ruby on

Alone-It was bad. With the whole outift-she looked absolutely amazing and way better than a majority of the women last night.

What would people prefer she do? Wear long, straight hair. That is just too much work for Black hair and it’s unnatural. Have folks forgotten she’s a sista and sistas have naturally curly and kinky hair. When is it going to be acceptable or even sexy for Black folks to wear their hair Black and natural?

Tim Allen was right….she looks beautiful.

Ummmmmm…. yeah except that is exactly how Vanessa normally wears her hair. And there is NO WAY all the hair she is wearing there is her own hair. In fact I’d be willing to bet that most (if not all) of those curls are NOT her hair.

Oh My Dear God
