My favourite Golden Globes gown?

Yes, it is rather “Barbie goes to high school Prom” but I’m a complete sucker for anything of a purple hue.  Besides, about 90% of the Golden Globe dresses were either black or a boring nude colour.

And her hair, figure and makeup is looking pretty hot as well.  Definitely one of her better moments.

Talking of my love of the colour, this shade of purple is also scrumptious:

But I’m not so much feeling the transparent material, or Sandy’s hair and makeup.

Maybe I love it because she looks like a big bar of Cadbury’s Dairy Milk?

Mmmmm…. chocolate.
