Falling flat at the Globes

In fiery red, sparkling blush, and silken floral dresses, stars attending Sunday night's 70th Annual Golden Globes exposed a deep amount of cleavage and a whole lotta leg.

But there wasn't much spillage to be seen - except by Sofia Vergara in a strapless gown by Filipino designer Michael Cinco.

That's because most of the celebrities - including the post-pregnant mamas - were tiny and toned. All the deep Vs and thigh-high splits revealed was the flat and the bony.

There was nothing left to our imaginations because there was nothing to see.

Blame it on Pilates. Blame it on eating green. Blame it on society's unrealistic expectations of our bodies. Women on the 2013 red carpet were quite curveless. (Not to mention pale, but that's another beauty story.)

Speaking of leg, how many celebs channeled Angelina Jolie's 2012 Academy Award Versace look that made her sliver of a leg a star? Funny how last year's chuckle was this year's hottest red carpet look.

But I implore you, couch fashionistas. You can't pull this look off. Let the waifs live on the big screens. After all, the camera adds 10 pounds to them, not us.
