Golden Globes: How NOT to Wear a Prom Dress on the Red Carpet [Apocalypse Scenario #116]


I am bored of award show red carpets, and I bet you are too. The same silhouettes, the same poses, the same best and worst lists year after year- it gets tiring. In all this monotony of what should be a really exciting night, I had an epiphany. Some celebrities are wearing prom dresses on the red carpet, and that's why I've gotten so bored. I've seen these looks before...at PROM! 

I have pulled a few examples of celebrities wearing prom dresses and a few examples of celebrities NOT wearing prom dresses to illustrate my discovery. I guess it's not that big of deal, but if you're a celebrated individual in front of millions of fans on what could be your biggest night ever, shine like the star you are!

Here's what I mean:


NOT Wearing a Prom Dress:

Emma Stone is NOT wearing a prom dress, but instead, killing it in a bejeweled top and straight-legged trousers with the world's most hypnotically, beautifully, draped bow. You are my new idol. I love you. You are perfect.

EMMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAAAAASSS!!

EMMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAAAAASSS!!


Wearing a Prom Dress:

Jennifer Aniston is wearing a prom dress from "the 99 and the 2000".

NOT Wearing a Prom Dress:  

Chrissy Teigen is wearing lace and beads, and she looks stunning...because she's NOT wearing a prom dress!

YAY!

YAY!


Wearing a Prom Dress:

Amy Adams is wearing a beautifully draped periwinkle number that flatters her body. Did you just fall asleep too? It's because she's wearing a prom dress.  (I love you so much Amy. I don't like writing this.)

NOO

NOO

NOT Wearing a Prom Dress:

Claire Danes is wearing the most diliberate and well-executed and detailed and flattering dress of the night. It's so rich and interesting and...Claire, you just look so cool.

Wearing a Prom Dress:

Michelle Monaghan is wearing a prom dress, and is apparently going to the same prom as Jennifer Aniston. #99andthe2000


You get the point.

But, sometimes being bold and NOT wearing a prom dress can go wrong.

The "LIL WEIRDO of the night" award goes to Tina Fey. I love her more for it though SO. MUCH. MORE!

And other times (like once in a million awards show cycles) wearing a prom dress can go oh-so-right. See exhibit J: Kate Hudson.
