Amber Heard in Gucci and Jaimie Alexander in Genny show good design done in the best fabric, classic yet edgy. It is a balance that wins the best dressed in the Golden Globes. AP

Celebrity style-watching begins with the Golden Globes in January and peaks with the Oscars in February. As the release of the serious movies for acting awards closed last Christmas, we get excited over how the nominees will be dressed by top designers like Dior, Vuitton and Givenchy on the red carpet. Stylists narrow the dress choices to two or three evening dresses.


Top jewelry brands such as Bulgari and Cartier have security staff hovering around the stars all night and take the bling back after the post-awards parties in Hollywood hills. Everything is on loan and on the line.


During and after the Globes’ red carpet gauntlet, social media gives the verdict on the fashion of the stars. Harsh critics and online magazines can shame a starlet, memes are vulgar and multiply as the next day releases the best-dressed and the worst-dressed lists.


Here are our top picks: five best dressed, defined by good taste to make the celeb stand out instead of the brand shouting out. You wear the pretty dress, not the gown wearing you.


The Globes fashion we selected has been edited to the last detail, smartly finished, with the right makeup and hairdo. The evening bag, precious jewelry and the shoes create the perfect look of a winner.


In the awards ceremonies, we see how these Top 5 weather the night’s social whirl, from the onstage presenting to the extreme close-up to the high-wattage partying.


Now for the questionable worst dressed. We are not showing the fashion victims, not the styling disasters. Instead we train your eyes on the overdone and bad taste.


The Poor Choice awards on the red carpet at least give you the option to try again next year. Even the frocks that did not rock are looks that might not tarnish with age.


Like the iconoclast Cher, it is about being Awesome or Ewwesome. Whatever, your image must be unforgettable.
