They're Golden

Another year, another Golden Globes red carpet Sunday!  Now that I have been doing these red carpet top picks for a few years, my friends have started to text me during the day in anticipation.  They know I am watching  and picking my favorites, so they make sure to share their thoughts or ask for mine.  I love receiving their comments, and knowing watching the red carpet is just as fun and exciting for them as it is for me!  One was taken by all of the capes that floated down the carpet. Another was proud of her correct prediction of white being a big color of the night.  Another simply asked me which dress was my favorite.  Presumably as someone who watches this show every year and comes up with a list of top picks, determining a favorite would be easy.  But, not this year.  There were many beautiful dresses worn by stunning women, but I couldn't name just one top pick.  Some years there is that perfect combination of dress and actress, and they are with out a doubt the standout of the night.  This year I dare say I didn't have a favorite.  With that being said, it was very difficult to keep my top picks to 10.  I could have easily listed a top 15.  But, I took the challenge and picked my top 10, which if I am being honest are my favorites for the combination of the dress and the actress who wore it.
