In Defense of Sienna Miller’s Golden Globes Dress

I’ll spare you another Globes style gallery, but I will tell you that Kristin Wiig in Michael Kors, Rosie Huntington-Whitley in Saint Laurent, Nicole Richie in Naeem Khan, Jessica Alba in Oscar de la Renta and Kate Hudson in Alexander McQueen all looked pretty damn fantastic. While most of these ladies received tons of love on various best-dressed lists today, I was annoyed to see that my favorite look from the night is being cyberbullied. Am I completely off my rocker to think that Sienna Miller was absolutely brilliant in Erdem last night? The pastel floral appliqués on this spring 2013 number are cool as hell, and props to Miller for taking a risk. 

Daily Mail said the dress "looks awkward to the average eye." Who wants to be average? HuffPost claimed it "fell flat" because the appliqués were "fluttering in the wind." I happen to enjoy the wind-fluttering, thank you very much. Paired with a near-bare face, swept-back hair and signature Miller statement details like Van Cleef & Arpels earrings on only one side of the ear, the entire look shined and was a breath of fresh air on an otherwise sparkle-dunked red carpet.  

The Girl star revealed to E! that she "really wanted to wear someone British." I love that she veered away from tapping an expected Brit designer for the job and instead went for a fresh talent like Erdem, whose romantic runway shows never cease to enchant during London Fashion Week.

Bra-freakin’-vo, Miss Miller.
