Good As Gold: The Globes’ Best Dressed Stars

We’ve got to hand it to Hollywood — last night’s Golden Globes set the fashion bar for the season. We’ve cast our ballots for the evening’s best dressed, and now, we’re here to break it down for you. 

Sure, the runaway trend of the night was red and strapless (can’t believe we saw double visions from Dior!), but the embellishments and neo-noir didn’t go unnoticed either — we’re looking at you, Kate Hudson! And we dare you to name one person who didn’t reach for their inhaler when Sienna Miller graced the screen in pretty-punk separates. Yep, just try and top this lineup, Oscar!



Sienna Miller 
Well, 12 hours later, we’re still standing in ovation for both the bare-faced babe and Sienna Miller’sstylist, Cher Coulter, for giving us a dose of funky-chic in the form of Erdem separates. Adding to our uncharted-territory elation, she rocked three Van Cleef & Arpels earrings on one side, while going au natural on the other. The appliqué florals, white-lace base, and risk-taking attitude are exactly why she was The Girl of the evening, despite being shafted of the actual trophy.

Jessica Chastain
Two words: aqua caliente! There was nothing zero or dark about Jessica Chastain’s mermaid-esque Calvin Klein creation. The best actress winner mentioned to E! that it reminded her of a “waterfall,” and quite frankly, we’d like to be doused in it!

Kerry Washington
While we saw enough beige at the Beverly Hilton last night to just say “blah-blah-blah” to the whole parade, Kerry Washington showed Tinseltown how it’s DONE in a sheer, breathtakingly bejeweled Miu Miu. The Django Unchained star topped off her nude number with a vintage Movado watch from the vault (always ooh la la-worthy when you hear that!), and the diamonds were so symbiotic with the dress that you would have thought they came as a set.

Michelle Dockery 
Isn’t it thrilling to finally see our beloved Mary in a modern-day frock? Michelle Dockery donned an Alexandre Vauthier gilt-and-white, cap-sleeved, absolute stunner, and she sweeps our sleek awards. We also adore the unexpected peeks of color in her burgundy Loubies and the bold, emerald Bulgari gems.

Julianna Margulies
Julianna Margulies was 100% badass in her plunging, backless, and beaded Pucci gown. Whew, girlfriend, way to bring it! We weren’t sure she could outdo last year’s Giambattista floral, floor-sweeping winner, but she’s now proven that her red-carpet chops are steadfast.

Kate Hudson
Only hot-bodied Kate Hudson would say she opted for “comfort” in a black, body-clinging Alexander McQueen! Apparently, her first choice was too heavy for her breezy-boho mantra of the eve life, and we’re glad she opted for classic elegance and on-point statuesque-chic.

Naomi Watts
The best actress nominee’s iCal is working overtime this awards season. And, what better way to celebrate all of Naomi Watts‘s upcoming red-carpet moments than with a haute burgundy frock? Nominated for her role in The Impossible, Watts paired the long-sleeved Zac Posen dress (complete with pleated train!) with matching Lorraine Schwartz drop earrings. Of course, having Liev Schreiber on your arm doesn’t hurt either.

Julianne Moore 
What we’d give to be cc’ed on the email convo between Julianne Moore and designer Tom Ford. According to the best actress winner, she sent TF a note, requesting a custom gown. The result? A floor-length, black-and-white stunner that blew all of the 20-somethings on the carpet out of the water. And, to further the fact that age ain’t nothing but a number (she’s 52 years old, people!), the mama of two sported a super-sassy snake bracelet and chandelier earrings from Bulgari. Game changer, indeed!

Lucy Liu 
We’ve heard every critique in the book about theElementary actress’ Carolina Herrera gown (drape and wallpaper-inspired included). But, no matter where you stand on the decor debate, one thing’s for certain: We’d love to take this sucker home with us. Like night and day, this dress is the complete opposite of Lucy Liu‘s skin-tight sequined frock from the Emmys. We love ourselves a fashion risk, and opting for a theatrical floral number certainly paid off.

Lena Dunham 
Hey girl, hey! Although season two of Lena Dunham‘s Golden Globe-winning HBO show premiered during the actual awards, Dunham arrived at the red carpet looking nothing short of chic. Clad in the most decadent plum-purple, we loved the details of Zac Posen’s décolletage-baring number. Her stylist, Brad Goreski, must’ve known that the cinched waist would hug her curves in all the right places and that the off-the-shoulder neckline was prime tattoo-exposing material. If there was ever a dress that could define Dunham, this is it!
