Hayden Panettiere and Edie Falco bought off-the-rack dresses for the Golden Globes

In Hollywood, what you wear on the red carpet usually depends on where you fall in the celebrity hierarchy. The most sought-after designers want to dress the stars who will get the most exposure. The bigger the star, the more she’ll be photographed and interviewed, and the greater the odds that what she wore will be discussed by both professional and armchair fashion critics in the days, weeks, and sometimes years to come.

So if you’re not, as Modern Family‘s Julie Bowen once told me, “famous enough,” good luck getting the dress of your dreams.

For the Golden Globes, Hayden Panettiere reportedly took fashion matters into her own hands, wearing a $10,000 black-and-white Tom Ford gown that she bought off-the-rack.

“It’s the first time I’ve ever worn him, because I’ve been begging,” Panettiere told E!’s Giuliana Rancic on the Globes red carpet. “I feel sexy in it, I feel comfortable in it, and I’m in Tom Ford. I would wear a plastic bag if it was designed by him.”

The actress’ gushing remarks were certainly complimentary of the designer, but was paying retail for her dress a major fashion faux pas? READ FULL STORY

'Orphan Black' star Tatiana Maslany on her Golden Globes look: 'This could be glam clone'

Lupita Nyong’o may have gotten the lion’s share of attention, but another actress made an impressive awards season red carpet debut at Sunday’s Golden Globes.

Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany, a nominee in the category of Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama, glittered in a beaded platinum gown from British designer Jenny Packham’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection.

The inspiration behind Maslany’s ensemble?

“I wanted to be as far away from the look of a psycho Ukrainian murderer,” joked the 28 year-old actress. READ FULL STORY

Golden Globes: Did Elisabeth Moss put an end to the E! red carpet Mani Cam?

Did Elisabeth Moss’ one finger salute put an end to the E! red carpet Mani Cam?

After successfully rolling out the Glam Cam 360 and the Stiletto Cam, E! upped the ante on their total body coverage with the debut of the Mani Cam at the 2012 Emmys. Inspired by Zooey Deschanel’s quirky nail art, the high-tech diorama was designed to offer an extreme close-up of stars’ manicures against the backdrop of a scaled-down E!-branded step and repeat.

But after Elisabeth Moss gave the camera a well-polished one finger salute at last night’s Golden Globes, some wondered if this was the end of the Mani Cam.

After Giuliana Rancic encouraged the Golden Globe nominee to stick her digits in the box, Moss hesitated. “I did this last time. There’s something I wanted to do last time, but I’m not going to do it,” she said. Rancic’s reply; “Do it! C’mon, do it! This is E! We’re in 160 countries!”

So Moss flipped the bird, causing Rancic and the E! team to fly into a minor red carpet panic. Now that the actress had demonstrated that the Mani Cam was the perfect platform for vulgar hand signs, would E! have to shut it down? READ FULL STORY

Sofia Vergara's Golden Globes dress swap: Before or after-party? -- POLL

Most nominees slip into something more comfortable before they hit the after-party circuit — not Sofia Vergara.

The Modern Family star tried something new for the red carpet, arriving at the ceremony wearing a dark, romantic Zac Posen ballgown. Once the show was over, Vergara changed into a sexy, beaded Zuhair Murad mermaid gown.

Vergara’s second dress got nearly as much attention as the first, and not just because of the cleavage-baring plunging neckline. The actress posed for pictures at post-show parties hosted by HBO, NBC/Universal, InStyle/Warner Bros., and Fox/FX.

Which of Vergara’s dresses do you like best? Cast your vote in the poll below. READ FULL STORY

Is a celebrity ever obligated to say yes to a dress?

There weren’t many fashion disasters at last night’s Golden Globes, but there were a couple of major disappointments, most notably Jennifer Lawrence and Zoe Saldana. Was bad taste to blame, or were there other forces at play?

“I’m wearing Dior. I wanted to surprise… do a shocker,” Lawrence told Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet. Was it just a tongue-in-cheek quip, or was it the actress’ way of saying that she didn’t have the option of choosing something from another label? READ FULL STORY

Jon Voight at the Golden Globes: The story behind the scarf

When Jon Voight won Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Mini-Series or TV Movie for Ray Donovan at Sunday’s Golden Globes, the 75-year-old actor looked dapper as ever — all thanks to a white scarf draped over his tux.

When he spoke to reporters backstage, he explained that the scarf has been his personal awards-show signature for quite some time, thanks to an accidental accessory more than four decades ago.

“I wore it to the Academy Awards once early in my career. Might have been for Midnight Cowboy,” he said of the 1969 movie, which won him his first Golden Globe. “It was one of those times, very early times. And I got dressed as you do for these things, and you don’t really think too much about it. You get a suit, and I put the shirt on, and the collar was too tight, and I couldn’t close the collar. I didn’t know what to do.

“I had the driver picking me up at a certain time,” Voight continued. “So I went by this haberdashery and said, ‘Hold on just a sec. I need to jump out.’ And I said, ‘I need something. Give me that scarf there.’ So I put the scarf on, thinking I could get away with something, that people wouldn’t notice that I had no tie and I had an open shirt. The next day, when the ‘fashion police’ come out, they said, ‘Only Jon Voight could get away with an open shirt! It was absolutely dazzling!’ So that’s it. It’s the scarf. And then it became something associated with me. I’ve given my original away, and I got this one.”

Take a trip down memory lane with Voight’s white scarf here and here.

Who will be the best dressed TV actress at the Golden Globes? POLL

EW’s Melissa Maerz and Jeff Jensen have shared their predictions for the Golden Globes TV categories, but who will win the red carpet?

To narrow down the field I chose five of the most consistently stylish nominees.

Best supporting actress nominee Sofia Vergara (Modern Family) always (always, always) brings the sex appeal, so it’s safe to assume that she’ll wear something sequined that shows off her curves. Nominated for her role in a made-for-TV movie, 68-year-old Helen Mirren (Phil Spector) gives younger stars a run for their money on the red carpet. What if best actress nominee Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation) and her co-host Tina Fey tie for best dressed? As for best actress nominee Kerry Washington (Scandal) … I mean, come on, she’s Kerry Washington, of course she’ll look amazing. Zooey Deschanel’s (New Girl) hit-or-miss style makes her one of tonight’s red carpet wild card contenders.

Who will be the best dressed movie actress at the Golden Globes? POLL

EW’s Anthony Breznican has shared his predictions for the Golden Globes movie categories, but who will win the red carpet?

To narrow down the field I chose five of the most consistently stylish nominees, but I always love a good fashion upset.

Jennifer Lawrence (American Hustle) is the face of the Miss Dior handbag line, so it’s safe to assume that, even though her Dior gown tripped her up at last year’s Oscars, the best supporting actress nominee will wear a gown from the French fashion label. Cate Blanchett’s (Blue Jasmine) style, like her acting, is unparalleled — who else could pull off a pagoda-shouldered, red lacquer sequined dress? — so I’ve got high expectations for the best actress contender. No one does red carpet romantic better than best actress nominee Amy Adams (American Hustle), thanks in part to designer pals like Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera. In just a few short months, Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave) has earned as much attention for her style as she has for her breakout role, which earned the newcomer a nod in the best supporting actress category. Technically, Sandra Bullock (Gravity) is a red carpet veteran, but best actress nominee could teach the up-and-comers a thing or two about getting dressed for the red carpet.
