Paula Patton's Golden Globes 2014 Dress Is A Spectacular Mess (PHOTOS)

When we first saw Paula Patton step on to the Golden Globes 2014 red carpet, we gasped - but not in delight.

The "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" actress wore an elaborate Stephane Rolland Couture gown which featured long layered ruffles that nearly covered half of the 38-year-old's body.

While we love a good ruffle now and then (see Rose Byrne's Valentino), Paula's clingy white gown was totally overwhelmed by the massive layers which, at some angles, looked like Kleenex.

Not even her gorgeous David Yurman earrings and coloured cocktail ring could save this disaster.

These celebs did way better:
