Still on her Golden Globes kick, Cathy Horyn asks "Where was that single, game-changing dress that people would talk about?" Barring that, couldn't Cher have gone a little more crazy? These days a good "don't" would be a relief from the sea of boring sexy evening gowns with trains. But that's the refrain everyone has been singing since 1997, since to this day no one's really topped Nicole Kidman's chartreuse dress from John Galliano's first collection for Dior. But after two blog posts in as many days from Horyn, if there are any starlets reading this who want to get on the Times' critic's good side, wear something short and flirty and she'll love you forever.
