Who is a style queen and who should be taken away by the fashion police this week?

Best dressed: January Jones

We've seen the paparazzi shots, we thought we knew just what to expect from January Jones at the Golden Globes and we were ... wrong. Yes, really.

It came as a horrendous shock to us too. Normally we slam the ungrateful Ms Jones who seems to spend a huge amount of time and effort to disassociate herself from alter ego Betty Draper by parading around off-set with bed-head hair (you do know we mean she hasn't bothered to brush it, don't you?) and vest tops that have seen better days.

We know that if we had access to Betty's fabulous, '60s-style wardrobe (and to the lovely Mr Draper ... sigh), we'd be sure to appreciate it.

So imagine our surprise when we saw January looking really quite stylish at the latest Hollywood love-in.

We're not entirely convinced by the cut-outs in her Versace dress, but we know she's made a big effort to look presentable. And we absolutely love her hair.

You know, it was only this week that Ms Jones confirmed she'd split up with her boyfriend -- being single clearly suits her.

Worst dressed: Tilda Swinton

And the award for the worst DIY effect goes to ... Well, there was no suspense at the Golden Globes this week. Once we spotted Tilda Swinton in this get-up, we just knew that she'd be (dis)honoured.

Now, don't get us wrong. We do appreciate a classic white shirt, and we're big fans of minimalism (when we're not raving about frills and flounces, that is), but there's a time and place for everything.

Left to its own devices, this could have been a perfectly nice, fashion-forward outfit from Jil Sander, which would work fine on a casual night out. But not at a glossy awards ceremony.

Swapping the original T-shirt style top to make it appear more formal won't fool us, Tilda, and that champagne skirt is the very definition of ill-fitting.

We know you pride yourself on your quirky individuality, but this is a red-carpet event. Have some respect!
