Gone Girl star's dress makes waves at Golden Globes

GONE Girl star Rosamund Pike's Golden Globe dress has the internet talking this morning.

The British beauty walked the red carpet of Hollywood's first major awards ceremony of the year in an ill-fitting white Vera Wang gown.

Fashion pundits questioned the gown's long straps and low-cut back.

Pike, who gave birth to her second son just one month ago, is up against Jennifer Aniston, Felicity Jones, Julianne Moore and Reese Witherspoon for Best Actress in a Drama.

Stars arriving to the 72nd annual awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel are being greeted with rainy weather and a soggy red carpet.

The major trend emerging from the red carpet so far is slim, figure-hugging silhouettes and simple, bold colours. There's not as much lace or nude colours as in previous awards seasons.

Aussie Naomi Watts, whose films Birdman and St Vincent are both nominated for Best Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, was a stand-out in a strapless yellow gown with a glittering snake necklace.

Watts' Birdman co-star Emma Stone had the cool factor with her black pantsuit with a large bow trailing off the hip.

Fashion Police panelist Kelly Osbourne also stood out with her glittering camera clutch.

But mum-to-be Keira Knightley had critics and punters divided with her custom-made Chanel gown featuring a butterfly print and white lace collar.

Twitter user Melissa Aguilar wrote: "Don't think Chanel did pregnant Keira Knightley any favors #GoldenGlobes".

Jarrett Wieselman agreed tweeting: "Keira Knightley said it took 33 people to make this dress (and no one said, "Um .. hang on..") #GoldenGlobes".

 

A technical glitch over the weekend saw a test of a winner's page of the Golden Globes website accidentally go live, revealing several major winners reportedly including Selma for Best Motion Picture Drama.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler return for the third consecutive year to host today's ceremony.
