Divas and Darlings - Golden Globes 2012

Red Carpet Fashion

Golden Globe Awards 2012

The 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards took place last night at the Beverly Hills Hilton. As a pre-cursor to the Oscars, Hollywood's second biggest awards show laid out the red carpet to welcome some incredible styles. Click on each of the pictures for a larger view.

The Romantics

Charlize Theron was ethereal in a pale blush pink Christian Dior gown, which has a large bejeweled waist bow and split leading into a long train. A sparkly headband completed her vintage look. Jessica Alba is lovely in lavender, wearing a strapless beaded Gucci gown with matching clutch. Jessica Biel incited antique charm in this exquisite ivory lace gown by Elie Saab. With the addition of Salma Hayek's and Georgina Chapman's dresses, these are my favourite looks from the event.

Radiant Shades 

'Mission Impossible 4' actress Paula Patton was wrapped in a canary yellow Monique Lhuillier gown with flared skirt. Jenna Dewan is gorgeous in a silky teal Maria Lucia Hohan gown with nude underlay skirt. Purple statement earrings are the prefect accessory to her outfit. Ariel Winter looked adorable in a violet Dolce & Gabbana dress with ruffled skirt and black tulle hem. Natalie Portman underwhelmed in a cerise pink Lanvin gown with red band and clutch. Kelly Osbourne's azure blue mermaid gown with exaggerated shoulders is by Zac Posen.


Georgina Chapman is breathtaking in a white grecian Marchesa gown, with delicately embroidered gold neckline and cuffs. Claire Danes went for a simple silhouette, wearing a black and white J Mendel gown. Emma Stone was her glorious self in a plum sheer pleated gown with ruby panels. She accessorized with a black eagle belt and Lanvin sandals. Kate Winslet chose a classic Jenny Packham gown with black satin keyhole cutout top and white skirt. Angelina Jolie was polished in an off-white Atelier Versace gown with draped split skirt. Colour comes in the form of a folded red neckline, crimson lips & clutch.

Raspberry Rouge 

Reese Witherspoon wore a cherry red Zac Posen gown with strapless sweetheart neck. Her best accessory was a dashing smile. Viola Davis chose a one-shouldered burgundy Emilio Pucci gown with thigh-high slit. Dianna Agron was unusual in scarlet laser-cut Giles dress, with tiered skirt. Kudos to her for taking a risk. Penelope Anne Miller looked elegant in a wine coloured Pamela Roland gown. Stacy Keibler sticks to her simple yet sophisticated style in a red hot Valentino gown. 

Bridal Inspired

Kate Beckinsale wears a chalk blush Roberto Cavalli gown with mermaid skirt. Elle McPherson is yet another star to wear Zac Posen. Her ivory gown features a corset satin bodice that unfolds into a layered tulle skirt. Amanda Peet wore an irresistible one-shouldered Marc Jacobs dress with wispy tiered frills. Jessica Chastain opted for a white high-collared and beaded Givenchy gown with accented waist. Shailene Woodley wore a pale grey Marchesa gown with zig-zag strapless neckline and pleated skirt. Giuliana Rancic picked a surprisingly tasteful cream textured gown with high-neck.

Blue Belles

Golden Globe award winner Michelle Williams in a navy blue Jason Wu velvet dress. An anti-climax since her last red carpet look. Frieda Pinto wore a teal blue Prada gown with a black leather belt and capacious skirt. Sofia Vergara does a figure-fitting gown like no other. Her indigo blue peacock gown with fishtail skirt is by Vera Wang. Madeleine Stowe made a rare red carpet appearance also wearing Vera Wang. Her bright blue gown has a strapless corset and trailing skirt. Berenice Bejo strikes a pose in a navy blue silk organza Gucci gown, with Daniel Swarovski clutch.

 Back to Black

Mila Kunis looked elegant in a one-strap Christian Dior dress with sheer ruched bodice. Rooney Mara was predictably in black, wearing a Nina Ricci gown with deep plunge and strapped neckline. Salma Hayek looked ravishing in a custom made Gucci gown with angular silver and gold beading and shimmery black skirt. Debra Messing wore another favored designer of the night, Monique Lhuillier. Her asymmetrical gown has a tucked-in drape skirt. Julianne Moore was every bit graceful in a delicately ruffled Chanel gown.

 Green Screen

Award winner Laura Dern glistened in a long-sleeved, emerald green Andrew Gn gown. Hannah Simone was alluring in a jewel green off-the shoulder gown. The colour is amazing with her hair and skin tone. Evan Rachel Wood tried out a bottle green Gucci gown, exorbitantly embellished with shiny paliettes and ostrich feathers. Zoey Deschanel maintained her unique style, wearing a lime and black Prada gown and 60's hairdo .

Shades of Champagne

Nicole Kidman showed off her slender figure in a body-hugging Versace gown, decorated with gold studs. Diane Lane was graceful in a gold flecked Reem Acra dress. Julie Bowen displayed vintage glamour in a fairy-esque Reem Acra dress with embellished sleeves and retro waves. Katherine McPhee opted for a shorter length Donna Karan dress with uneven hem. Sarah Hyland was dressed in a champagne lace Dolce & Gabbana gown with black lace beaded belt. Heidi Klum was toned down in a simple Calvin Klein column gown, placing all emphasis on a million dollar turquoise Lorraine Schwartz statement necklace.


You will either love or loathe these. Sarah Michelle Gellar wears a blue and white smoke print dress with lumbering folds, by Monique Lhuillier. Lea Michelle in a sequined silver grey Marchesa gown with a sheer bodice, craftily covered in a feathered design. Piper Perabo looked washed out in a very sheer nude Oliver Theyskens ballgown with voluminous skirt.
