Credit crunch credit smunch! Thank goodness for Jennifer Lopez who went against the grain of safe and strapless in this sparkly golden halterneck number designed by Marchesa. Our ed-in-chief predicted this dress would wind up on the red carpet at the Globes, and lo and behold it did! The plunging gown accentuated Lopez's gorgeous post-bab(ies) figure and made her a stand-out on the presenter's stage. It should be noted that jewels are being kept to a subtle minimum this year. Perhaps this is where the celebs are saving their pennies... or something.
