BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Olympic champions Gabby Douglas, Missy
Franklin and Evan Lysacek shed their athletic garb and slipped on slinky
duds to walk the red carpet at the Golden Globes.
"Evan put it perfectly," Franklin said. "He said, 'This is kind of like the Olympics for the celebrities.'"
Douglas, the all-around gymnastics champion, shimmered and shivered
in lime on the chilly carpet, where temps hovered in the 50s.
Franklin, the five-time swimming medalist, wore a black silk gown with a sparkly statement necklace.
Lysacek, the reigning Olympic figure skating champion, donned a black
velvet tuxedo that would have looked equally as dashing on the ice.
"I want to see everyone," gushed Douglas, who stopped to pose for a
picture with Sean "Diddy" Combs. "I want to meet Emma Stone. I'm having
so much fun."
