    Re Angelina, I really don't get why the media sees her as such a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Yes, she does have a rather interesting face, beautiful bone structure, and (what I am assuming are) genuinely full lips. But that's where it stops, imo. She's so thin now, I'm starting to worry if her spindly little neck will be able to continue holding up that head of hers. She looked like a stick figure with clothes on at the Golden Globes. She is dangerously thin and this has taken a lot away from her looks.

    Tilda Swinton is an odd duck, definitely. I didn't really see what she was wearing at the GGs, though. All I noticed was that it was a pretty shade of blue--but by then, I was so sick of white, beige, black, and blush that I was happy to see any kind of color at all.

    She is very thin. Her head looked huge on a skinny body.I read that Brad was worried over her, but I am sure she does her own thing.I dont see the beauty.

    Good to know I'm not in the minority on this.

    I love Tilda Swinton. Not crazy about her hair this time, but I thought the dress was lovely and unique. She's sort of in her own category, so I usually give her a pass. She's hardly ever boring, which is a nice change from so many people at these awards shows. I've been a fan since Orlando - she rarely makes safe choices and that's why I like her!

    Re: Jane Fonda - even George Clooney commented about Jane in that dress! She looked amazing!

    I love Meryl Streep and, although I think she could often wear things that are more flattering, I really don't care. I thought she looked terrific in the dress Chris March designed for her a few awards shows back. Like someone noted, she probably doesn't care all that much and dresses for comfort.

    I love that David Furnish (Elton John's partner) bashed Madonna's win via Twitter. I guess she's said some rude things about Gaga (who is the godmother to David and Elton's son) too. Seems like she's grasping for relevancy. I think there was some controversy about Madonna's song even being nominated because it came fairly late in the credits of the movie. I doubt it will get an Oscar nod.

For other actors, especially those just starting out or those more dependent for their fame on the way they look, that may not be as true. Meryl isn't ugly by a lot shot, but I don't think she's ever needed to maintain a particular look to advance her career. In fact, the opposite actually appears to be true--she's generally lauded for sort of disappearing into a wide variety of roles--and it's always been true. She's always been sort of an odd combination of lead actress and character actress, because she never really played the typical ingenue or romantic lead kind of role, even as a young actress. When she was a romantic lead, it was often a much different sort of role than the run of the mill romantic lead (e.g. Sophie's Choice, Out of Africa). That, along with her talent, may be part of the reason she's had such a long, successful career.

    When Meryl was just starting out, most viewers weren't as savvy about designers and fashion as they are now either, simply because they weren't covered as much. Nowadays, actors know when they hit the red carpet that they're going to be asked about the designer, why they chose the look etc. They're just as likely to be asked about that as their film/television show/play.
    I agree. Fashion has never been as important to her as comfort and I don't care what she wears. Katherine Hepburn was another one who just didn't care and had the talent to back up her personal choices.

    Oh that's what he was tweeting about.I knew Gaga was their child's godmother. I didnt know she was rude about her. I think Madge is past her sell by date.

She also lives in multi-million-dollar mansions and shops in the most expensive stores.
    This! And if starving hersef periodically in solidarity with the hungry, to the point she looks like a skeleton, is the reason I have to wonder what Madonna's excuse is. Their arms look alike. Like (forgive me the simile) super elongated penises.
