Fashion plates: gasps to guffaws

I t's a lucky thing the Golden Globes are a dress rehearsal for the Oscars. Because Hollywood definitely needs more rehearsal time. We scoured the reviews on the Web and decided these four photos best sum up the red carpet experience from Sunday night's gala.

Winter's Bone's Jennifer Lawrence

"Her black ruffled Louis Vuitton number is stunning, with a sexy split front and gorgeously shaped and fitted bodice," gushed.

The King Speech's Helena Bonham Carter

"[She] rarely if ever makes a best dressed list and her Golden Globes outfit will not change that," Access Hollywood wrote. "Her Vivienne Westwood concoction defies explanation and I'm still scratching my head over why she wore one red shoe and one green one."

Mad Men's January Jones

"January Jones is all about the sex in this jaw-dropping Versace number!" said E! Online. "But the Mad Men star tames the sexiness with classic hair and subtle jewelry. Well played, Miss Jones!"

Sandra Bullock

"There were literally gasps when Sandra Bullock stepped out of her limo and onto the red carpet at last night's Golden Globes," Pop Eater's Rob Shuter said. "Relax, America. Sources tell me Bullock's new look is only temporary while she films Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close with Tom Hanks."

The Juice

What about Ricky Gervais?

Host Ricky Gervais disappeared for about an hour during Sunday night's telecast — right about the time he had turned up the heat to "broil" on actors in attendance. But conspiracy theorists can relax; the comedian said Monday it was all part of the plan.

"I did every single introduction I was meant to. There just happened to be a long gap," Gervais said in a statement.

It could be a long gap, too, before he's invited back to host the event. "He definitely crossed the line," Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Philip Berk told the Hollywood Reporter. "And some of the things were totally unacceptable. But that's Ricky."
