The Globes of Gold

Manolo says, as far as the Manolo could see, this year the theme for the ladies of the Globes of Gold awards was “Fantasy Bride”, as many, many of the famosas appeared in the white dresses.

Here is the partial list of the white-wearing Golden Globe Brides to Not Be…

The jilted Swan Lake non-bride

The comically well endowed Spawn of Trump

The Nastiest Little Mermaid

The beautiful Heidi Klump and Rebecca Romaine Lettuce

The very defintion of zaftig.

White, white, white, white, white, white as far as the eye could see!

Of the course the Manolo cannot ignore the mens…

The deer in the headlights.

Trump and Baldwin: in the truly just world these two men would be nothing more than the neighborhood butchers famous for the quality of their keilbasa.

    Zaftig! What a pleasingly plump word.

    Would that my plumpness was as pleasing as Salmas. Talk about dangerous curves.

    Is it me, or does it look like Trump just copped a feel?

    Heidi Klum looks like a million bucks, at least.

    Salma also looks fantastic – again, in that zaftig way. It almost look like she was shot by a very TALL photographer, & is a little foreshortened…

    And am I the only one who thinks Teri Hatcher looks like she should be called Teri Hatchet? (And lay off of whatever is making her look like the joker…)

    Wow, I sure am glad all the celebrity stylist clones got their memos. How embarassing for the few women who didn’t show up in white.

    It’s funny how Trump and Baldwin do indeed look like a couple of ham-faced butchers!

    IMO, Salma would look great with her hair up. That dress is not so bad, but her hair spils her silhouette. She needs to show her neck.

    Salma? Zaftig? I had to look that up to confirm that it means what I thought it did. Pleasingly plump?

    Sara Ramirez, who was ravishing in red? Zaftig.
    America Ferrera, gorgeous in purple? Zaftig.

    Salma? No. Just no.

    I think the Barrymore was actually wearing pale pink….

    Frankly I’ve never understood why anybody wouldn’t wear a bowtie when dressing up in black. Ray Charles can carry off not wearing a bowtie in black. But not many other people.

    Who is the gal giving Trump the Stink Eye? If Mrs. Trump is on Baldwin’s arm, is that the current lady friend of Alec? I’m reminded of the photo of Sophia Loren sneering at Jayne Mansfield…

    I might be the only one who thinks that Ben Affleck was hotter when he was with JLo!

  11. BlondeBlogger January 17, 2007 at 4:19 am #

    And Salma is so, so, very HOT!

    Dear Manolo, I just foung your blog because it was mentioned in the January issue of the English Vogue. I fell in love with the site immediately! I, myself, come from Finland. You must have thousands of readers worlwide. I just love fashion so much so this really great!

    Robyn, the gal giving Trump and his spouse-of-the-minute the stinkeye is Tina Fey, cocreator and costar of 30 Rock, probably caught wondering what she and her lumpy but very funny costar had done to deserve being trapped in this photo op from hell.

  14. La Petite Acadienne January 17, 2007 at 1:31 pm #

    Robyn, that’s Tina Fey — Alec Baldwin’s co-star (and the creator of) 30 Rock. I don’t know why she was making that face — perhaps toxic fumes were emananting from Donald Trump’s plastic hair?

  15. Bethany January 17, 2007 at 4:36 pm #

    AACK! Salma looks like the camera added 30 lbs! 10 in the top, 20 in the bottom… My inital reaction was, ‘Oh Goodness… that can’t be right.’

  16. Sasha January 17, 2007 at 4:47 pm #

    What a treat to see the current Mrs. Trump smiling. She usually looks like she just smelled something yucky.

  17. Ninjarina January 18, 2007 at 7:16 pm #

    Drew’s wearing pink and I would’ve loved Salma’s dress in another colour; I did like the ruching and draping very much and it did hug her curves extremely well but that shade of white is not flattering on her.

  18. Ninjarina January 18, 2007 at 7:19 pm #

    Oh, and I’m surprised no one called Ivanka on her horrible implants. Ugh.

    Ah, White: The symbol of purity…. One is pleased that so many women are claiming to be virgins in the Babylon of Hollywood.

  20. Meg Q January 19, 2007 at 1:41 am #

    I saw a diff pic of Salma and she looked great – it’s all in the angle, isn’t it?

    *Love* that expression on Tina Fey’s face – priceless!

  21. Jillian January 19, 2007 at 9:38 pm #

    Wow, I think Salma Hayek looks fantastic (like always), especially compared to the stick of celery in the background…

  22. Anon January 21, 2007 at 1:49 am #

    Jillian, I couldn’t agree more!
