Unlike this year’s films, I’ve seen a good deal of the nominated TV Shows. Among the winners, there were some long awaited blessings, like “The Americans” FINALLY winning Best Drama and a win for Patricia Clarkson in “Sharp Objects”. And then there were the obvious wins for “Killing Eve” and “The Assasination of Gianni Versace”. But there were also some equally frustrating wins – I’m looking at you, “The Kominsky Method”. The more things change, the more they stay the same, and a show about old white dudes will beat out a show like “Atlanta”. Sigh.

Sandra co-hosted the telecast with Andy Samberg and they both gave a charming 110% to a show that was thoroughly mediocre. However, her styling for the evening, from two Versace’s to a shockingly good Stella McCartney, completely made up for any mediocrity. This origami inspired Versace is one of my favorite looks of the night. It is classic, old school Hollywood glamour. I particularly love the way her side-swept hair balances out the exaggerated sleeve on the other side.

She opened the broadcast in another fabulous Versace. The neckline very cleverly mimics the cut of Andy’s tux. She looks divine.

And she won her history making second Golden Globe in this Stella McCartney, which may be one of the best things Stella has ever made. I love this shot of Sandra, her Globe, and her glorious sleeves.

Patricia rightly and unsurprisingly took home a statue for her role as the deliciously manipulative matriarch in “Sharp Objects”. I love this gown and I always enjoy seeing looks from designers we don’t see a ton of on the major red carpets. The colors are spectacular together and I am always here for a cape.
Laura Dern in ValentinoEmbed from Getty Images
I love Valentino and the construction of this is really interesting – it’s not so much ruffled as it is pleats of petal shaped chiffon. Buy why ruin a perfectly nice dress with a window to your bra?
Connie Britton in Christian SirianoEmbed from Getty Images
I adore both Connie Britton and Christian Siriano, but she deserves better than this. It’s bland and boring and Tammy Taylor would not settle for something so basic.
Penelope Cruz in Ralph and RussoEmbed from Getty Images
Praise the fashion gods, it’s not Chanel! I am so utterly tired of Penelope constantly picking dated and fussy creations from Karl. She looks fresh and fabulous in this brocade Ralph & Russo.

Thandie was the only star on hand to represent the “Westworld” cast, and thank god for that because I’m living for her BDE: Big Disco Energy.
Yvonne Strahovski in Alberta Ferretti CoutureEmbed from Getty Images
This is a perfectly lovely dress for a nominee who knew she wasn’t going to win.
Rachel Brosnahan in PradaEmbed from Getty Images
Rachel won her second Golden Globe for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”, a show I KNOW people love, and I KNOW references my beloved Alma Mater, but that I simply can’t bring myself to watch. I don’t know why, I just can’t drum up the interest. I could also say the same about this Prada gown. Aside from a great color, the top looks like a bathing suit, and I wish she’d taken to heart the lessons learned from Michelle Williams: when wearing yellow, always go with a red lip!
Patricia Arquette in Vivienne WestwoodEmbed from Getty Images
This dress encapsulates everything I hate about Vivienne Westwood. Too busty, too clingy, too sloppy.
Caitriona Balfe in MoschinoEmbed from Getty Images
Oh boy. Cait is great, but this is simply awful. Can’t she just wear this to all future award shows?
Elisabeth Moss in Dior Haute CoutureEmbed from Getty Images
This is WAY more va-va-voom than Elisabeth usually goes! It’s fun, but maybe more suited (pun somewhat intended!) for the less formal SAG’s or Critic’s Choice awards. Also, this is your semi-annual reminder that Elisabeth Moss is a Scientologist.
Billy Porter in custom Randi RahmEmbed from Getty Images
I don’t usually cover menswear, but this custom creation that apparently took 6 MONTHS to make is too spectacular not to feature. This is extra. It’s beyond extra. And honestly, I like it better than most of what the ladies wore.
Debra Messing in Pamella RolandEmbed from Getty Images
Debra is a die hard Siriano devotee so I was surprised to see her wearing Pamella Roland. It’s a good get for her, even if she looks like a glamorous molting bird.
Kristen Bell in Zuhair MuradEmbed from Getty Images
This is the most subdued Zuhair Murad I’ve ever seen. It’s also terribly boring on Kristin – someone who usually brings a lot more energy to the red carpet.
Julia Roberts in Stella McCartneyEmbed from Getty Images
Julia took her megawatt smile over to TV this year and earned a nomination for “Homecoming”, which will likely be my next binge, despite the fact that I find her aggressively pretentious. This fits great and I don’t mind the idea, but the skirt and bust are so drab – picture this in something brighter and it’s infinitely better.
Alison Brie in Vera WangEmbed from Getty Images
There are two potential dresses here: a cool, studded, gunmetal sheath, and a tulle Cinderella gown. They could both be lovely, but they don’t belong together.
