I was prepared to make a gallery dedicated to the headbands and other headwear at the 2012 Golden Globes, but only three women were wearing sparkly headbands. However, when I realized that two of the three — sorry, Charlize Theron – were friends, I figured a different post was in order.
The above photo of Michelle Williams and Busy Phillips has been popping up on various Tumblrs because of how sweet it is that the two friends both decided to try and start a trend on the red carpet. The two first met when they played bad girls Jen and Audrey on Dawson’s Creek almost fifteen years ago, and they’ve stayed in touch since. Though Busy lives in LA, she rushed to New York to comfort Michelle after Heath Ledger’s death in 2008; and Michelle has brought Busy as her date to the Oscars in both 2005 and 2011. So it’s not surprising that they might’ve put their heads together (hah) when planning their outfits for the Globes.
Similarly, Madonna had something of a twin on the red carpet: Andrea Riseborough, the star of Madge’s new movie W.E. and someone who the performer now counts as a dear friend. Andrea recently saidof their director-actor relationship, “She is so supportive and prepared, as well as very instinctive. She devotes her entire artistic life to it. Plus she is so much fun. That’s the other thing about Madonna, she’s wonderful fun. Yes, we are friends now.”
Although their dresses were vastly different colors, the cuts were incredibly similar… especially when Madonna won for Best Song (“Masterpiece”) and Andrea stood up to applaud her on her walk to the stage.
