Red carpet fashion: Golden Globes

04:38, Jan 14 2013
Kelly Osbourne
E! hosts Giuliana Rancic and Kelly Osbourne will doubtless be slamming many a poor B-lister for their fashion choices soon, and while Kelly somehow still manages to make purple hair look cool, Rancic looked deathly in this Oriett Domenech dress. That odd neckline will be in our terror dreams tonight.
Nicole Richie
Nicole Richie's Naeem Khan dress is actually one of our faves of the night, but zoom in and all we can see is blue eyeshadow, blue eyeshadow, blue eyeshadow. For some reason, sky blue eyes always look badly applied to us.
Kelly Osbourne
Actress Julianne Hough arrives in a Monique Lhuillier tulle white and gold gown. This girl definitely loves to sparkle on the carpet, and while there's no slamming this dress, we find the Gwen Stefani-style quiff an unsettling hair choice.
Kelly Osbourne
Ryan Seacrest plants a small kiss on Julianne Hough.
Kelly Osbourne
Actress Amy Adams takes a small tumble on the red carpet. Granted, it looks gorgeous, but that blush (or cappuccino?) Marchesa gown must be mighty hard to walk in (let alone sit in during the three hour ceremony).
Kelly Osbourne
Actress Ariel Winter of Modern Family looks cute in a printed Valentino dress with Benjamin Adams shoes. If Winter was in her twenties, we'd probably critique this for looking too cutesy with the headband-and-all, but it's perfect for a 14-year-old.
Kelly Osbourne
Actors Hugh Dancy and wife Claire Danes arrive. The Homeland actress looks enviably amazing in pure-red Versace just one month after giving birth to son Cyrus. ""Hoping I don't leak anytime soon," she quipped to Ryan Seacrest.
Kelly Osbourne
Actress Alyssa Milano wore a Ports 1961 gown that swamped her small frame, and, we hate to say it, but the ruched style makes the actress look a little like she's expecting (which we don't think she is).
Golden Globes 2013
Just three months after giving birth to son Noah, Megan Fox opted for a form-fitting Dolce&Gabbana dress, Lorraine Schwartz jewels and a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch. Say what you will about her acting, this girl knows how to work old-world Hollywood glam (although hubbie Brian Austin-Green's hair's verging on Vanilla Ice).
Golden Globes 2013
Quirk queen Zooey Deschanel arrives in an Oscar de la Renta dress, which sits somewhere on the colour spectrum between red and orange. You can't really go that wrong with Oscar, but the neckline here looks a little awkward (we just want to get all mum on her and hike it up).
Golden Globes 2013
Smash actress Katharine McPhee sits on the right side of the goth-glam spectrum in this sleek Theysken's Theory dress. She's like Angelina but likeable, and we love it.
Golden Globes 2013
Hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler said they went for a "husband and wife" look, with Tina in L'Wren Scott and Amy sexing-up a black capri tuxedo with Chopard diamonds.
Golden Globes 2013
Nominated Nashville star Hayden Panettiere paired natural makeup with a blush-pink Roberto Cavalli gown. It's simple yes, but it's also gorgeous.
Golden Globes 2013
Looking more like her 18-years-her-senior Modern Family co-star Sofia Vergara, 22-year-old Sarah Hyland's Max Azria dress ages her. The misplaced peplum aside, it's the pint-sized actress' big hair that most offends.
Golden Globes 2013
Actress/writer Lena Dunham of HBO show Girls wears an eggplant gown by Zac Posen. This isn't deep-down bad, but it'd be better suited on an actress like Glenn Close, aka, a woman of 65 - we expect edgier from Lena.
Golden Globes 2013
Newly-single it-girl Jennifer Lawrence wore a glamorous tomato red Dior gown. We appreciate the dressed-up sentiment, but her chest cups are just plain pointy.
Golden Globes 2013
Host Tina Fey on the red carpet.
Golden Globes 2013
Actor Michael J. Fox, his wife Tracy Pollan and their son Sam Fox arrive.
Golden Globes 2013
Halle Berry borrowed ferosh-side leg inspiration from Angelina, but the pattern on her Versace dress just does not work: curtains from a dodgy rental pad anyone?
Golden Globes 2013
Actress Naomi Watts clearly came in character, mimicking the late Princess Di's coy head tilt while walking the carpet in Zac Posen. Considering it's winter in the US, we appreciate that she opted for something that's actually seasonally appropriate.
Golden Globes 2013
Actress Jessica Chastain is a designer's darling, and this ice blue Calvin Klein gown looks beautiful from the back (although the middle-part makes her forehead look a little Kling On; nothing a side-part wouldn't have fixed).
Golden Globes 2013
Actor Bradley Cooper of the film Silver Linings Playbook arrives.
Golden Globes 2013
Newsroom actress Olivia Munn opted for sleek hair with a strapless Giorgio Armani Spring 2013 dress. The turquoise detailing is to-die, although we'd have preferred it paired with a less classic, more tribal necklace.
Golden Globes 2013
Actress Nicole Kidman and singer Keith Urban arrive. She-of-the-remarkably-smooth-forehead opted for Alexander McQueen, and while it ticks all the boxes, we can't help but wonder if it'd be nicer with just the sheer midriff or the gold embellishments, not both?
Golden Globes 2013
We love the springtime whimsy of Lucy Liu in this Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2013 ball gown. So many would've fallen flat on their fash-faces in this, but Liu's tiny waist and artfully simple accessorising and hair means she gets an A.
Golden Globes 2013
This is a big call, but we think this is Anne Hathaway's best look ever. This classic textured gown could be by no other designer than Chanel, and Hath's pixie crop seems to be at that perfect-two-weeks-after-cut length right now. A+.
Golden Globes 2013
Actor George Clooney and actress Stacy Keibler arrive, with the former-wrestler proving she's one of the only women in the world that can look good in horizontal stripes in form-fitting Armani Prive.
Golden Globes 2013
A stark improvement on Lea Michele of Glee fame's weird ice-skater-meets-bodybuilder look from last year's GG's, this white halter is by Lea's designer-of-the-moment Elie Saab. Safe for her, but still pretty.
Golden Globes 2013
Taylor Swift's Donna Karan gown just doesn't work for us. A) it already looks like it needs an iron and she probably hasn't even sat down yet. B) High-neckline + dark plum + satin = frumpy.
Golden Globes 2013
Amanda Seyfried wore Givenchy. Meh.
Golden Globes 2013
Actor Daniel Craig and his wife actress Rachel Weisz arrive.
Golden Globes 2013
Naomi Watts' Zac Posen dress features a keyhole back.
Golden Globes 2013
Jennifer Lopez wore a Zuhair Murad silk gown with an ivory lace overlay, accessorising with her 18-years-her-junior boyf, Casper Smart. This dress looks like almost everything JLo's been pictured in during her recent world tour: skintight. We know you have a good body, you can stop wearing body stockings.
Golden Globes 2013
Jessica Alba is setting herself up as quite the fashionista, and we love this salmon-pink Oscar de la Renta gown, adore the lipstick colour and even, despite our better judgement, kind of like the taxidermy-chic clutch.
Golden Globes 2013
Jennifer Garner has a remarkable ability to make everything she touches look down-to-earth and simple, even a fully-embellished Vivienne Westwood couture gown.
Golden Globes 2013
One of the most fashion-forward stars on the night was Sienna Miller in this crop top and maxi (sounds so bad on paper) appliqués combo from Erdem. We dig her simple make-up and hair, too (also loving the Jay Leno impersonator behind her).
Golden Globes 2013
Helen Mirren looked fresh and modern in a Badgley Mischka jersey gown - we love the earrings, she's a pro.
Golden Globes 2013
Kate Hudson is flawless in this Alexander McQueen gown, pulling off a high neck without looking severe thanks to soft hair.
Golden Globes 2013
Julianne Moore was dressed by best bud Tom Ford, natch (we're struggling from serious friendship group envy right now). The 47-year-old Globe winner's not afraid to make a statement, and this geometric look was surprisingly subtle for her, but still super-chic.
Golden Globes 2013
French screen goddess Marion Cotillard shows those Yanks how it's done in velour Christian Dior Couture. Many will say it's too simple, but we don't, this look's already firmly in our fantasy wardrobe.
Golden Globes 2013
Her hair's a bit messy (we really liked her drug lord look in Savages and dream to see that on the red carpet) and we don't dig her giant waist bow, but Salma's face screams: "Move aside, this is Dior and I can pull off anything".
Golden Globes 2013
We're a little sick of Sofia Vergara relying on sequins, and fear her red carpet choices are becoming a touch heavy on the slamming-but-could-almost-be-an-Eighties-prom-dress side. Ruminating aside, she still looks fierce but we'd just love if she tackled a trend for once next time.
Golden Globes 2013
Shimmer was a key trend this year, and 36-year-old Isla Fisher was one of our victors of the look. She looks like a diva of yesteryear in this Reem Acra gown. In a redhead-off with Amy Adams, we think she wins.
Golden Globes 2013
New mum Adele opted for a lace-detail Burberry boatneck in - wait for it - black. It's very her, and while there's nothing wrong with having a signature style, we'd love it if she gave us a flash of colour every now and then.
Golden Globes 2013
Kerry Washington is resplendent in Miu Miu, and we even like the touches of blonde in her choppy bangs.
Golden Globes 2013
Michelle Dockery - Lady Mary Crawley in our hearts - looks wonderful in Alexandre Vauthier. Colour is key here, if this was black and silver it'd be too harsh, but gold and white makes it lovely and regal.

The 70th Golden Globes are announced today, with Hollywood's finest lining up for their chance at awards' glory.
