Curvy Golden Globes 2011

Amber Riley
You know what I like most about Amber from the hit show Glee, it's her confidence. She always seems to have a beaming smile on her face or a "don't-mess-with-me" look that I just love. She handles herself with grace, has great posture and wears clothes that are fun and well fitted. This sparkly one shoulder Oliver Tolentino dress is so divine I want to wear it! The contrast detailing at the waist pulls her in, showing off her hourglass figure and the fishtail train adds a touch of glamour. The sweetheart neckline is perfect for a fuller bust and the one shoulder strap gives the illusion of a longer neck. She's kept accessories simple with a cocktail ring and dainty studs... the dress provides all the "bling" she needs.
Christina Hendricks
If you haven't seen Mad Men yet you're living under a rock. Christina is gorgeous, talented and has curves to kill for. Just like her character she's kept her look classic and not over the top. Simply stunning in the red, the perfectly tailored Romona Keveza dress fits like a glove and the ruching at the neckline is eye catching without being too distracting. Proof that even with a big bust or hips you can add even more wow-factor with ruffles.
Gabourey Sidibe
Gabourey gave a stellar performance in the heart-wrenching film Precious, I get chills just thinking about it, if you haven't watched it yet you should. Unlike her character she looks soft and very feminine. I love that she embraced colour and sequins in this Marc Bouwer dress, she looks positively glowing despite what some critics have said. The v-neck elongates her face and the sleeves are floaty, light and obviously make her feel more comfortable. The waistline is cinched right under the bust to try and create the illusion of an hourglass figure, this trick is great for those who are a little top heavy or apple shaped.
Kelly Osbourne
Kelly looked regal and all grown up on the red carpet wearing the elegant one shouldered Zac Posen dress. She's quite short and sometimes a rather large dress like this with lots of fabric would appear to drown the wearer but choosing the one-shouldered design as well as the contrasting stripe of nude fabric actually adds length and height. I heard she did a terrible job as one of the evenings fashion police critics and sure, it doesn't seem like she's stayed true to her own fashion style by choosing this dress but it does illustrate that a well designed and properly fitted dress can completely transform your look.
Christina Agueliera
I can't wait to go and see Burlesque in cinemas, I've heard really great reviews and you can tell Christina was channeling the theme when choosing her Zuhair Murad dress. My year 12 formal dress was blush pink with black lace overlay, it still hangs lovingly in my wardrobe and style I'm sure I'll always love. There has been some harsh comments about her figure of late but I think she looks curvy, soft and womanly. The mermaid train (cinched then flared out at the knee) really shows off her 'ass'ets and the band around her middle makes her waist seem smaller too. You have to have killer confidence to pull a dress like this on and flaunt it in public, I think she looks amazing.

Who was your favourite on the red carpet?
