OK. I’ll say it. I, too, watch The Golden Globes to see what the actors and actresses are wearing. There’s no denying that Hollywood has an indelible impact on our national sense of style and the fashions on the red carpet reflect the tone of the times.

The dresses were classic. And after years of the awful “long tie” tux look (Sorry, Owen Wilson), it looks like we’re back to the classic black-with-bow-tie look that makes every man look like they’re James Bond.
A few of my favorite looks follow below.
