A Surprising Night at the Golden Globes

Last night's 70th annual Golden Globes telecast was full of surprises.

I was surprised how genuinely I adored Michelle Dockery's Alexandre Vauthier gown.

I was surprised that Kristen Bell's Jenny Packham made me reconsider pregnancy for 3.2 seconds. And then I re-reconsidered.

I was surprised we didn't see more "oxblood." Though Naomi Watts in Zac Posen definitely set the bar pretty high.

I was surprised - wait, no I wasn't. Katharine McPhee was smoking hot in Theory. No surprise there.

I was surprised how much Anne Hathaway's speech turned my stomach. False modesty is very unbecoming. Yuck. But her Chanel? That was spectacular.

I was surprised that these three ladies wore nearly the same dress. Don't get me wrong, ultra-feminine  ballet pink lace is never a miss in my book. But when everyone wears the same thing, it makes the red carpet a bit less compelling.

I think Amy Adams wore her Marchesa version best. But Megan Fox in Dolce & Gabbana and Hayden Panettiere in Roberto Cavalli were also lovely.

I was surprised how many people compared this dress to drapes or upholstery on twitter last night. I say, kuddos to Lucy Liu for taking a risk in this unusual, eye-catching Carolina Herrera.

I was surprised by orange velvet on the red carpet! But I wasn't surprised that Marion Cotillard in Dior was probably my favorite of the night. I cannot begin to explain how enamored I am with that metallic belt. I saw Jennifer Lawrence first (in a similar coral Dior gown) but wasn't a fan of the business going on at the bust. So when Cotillard appeared, I was giddy. All the color, a similar metallic belt and no bizarre boob decor. I love the unexpected hemline and her simple hair and makeup.

Other surprises of the night: Jodie Foster's Speech, Bill "Rodham" Clinton's appearance, Mr. Golden Globe, Argo's big wins and people in California think 50ยบ is cold.
