A gargantuan proportion of what makes the Golden Globes exciting is made up of the gowns, bags, jewels and hairstyles worn by attending celebrities.
There is no greater fashion pressure than for celebrities who walk the red carpet. Play it safe, and they’ll go unnoticed or be criticized for being bland… express too much personality, and their eccentric gowns will be destined to go down in history as a fashion disaster.
This gallery shows a few of the 2009 Golden Globes fashions that probably won’t be inspiring fashion trends this year. The gallery shows the 2009 Golden Globes gowns worn by Renee Zellweger, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks, Angelina Jolie and Heidi Klum. Some were so tight their wearers were bursting out (Beyonce), others were granny-like (Marisa Tomei) while some had hair issues (Drew Barrymore). Men weren’t exempt from this list either: just look at Mickey Rourke.
