Jewel Tone Globes

Dear Readers,
It's that red carpet time of year again when the movie stars get their pose on!  Sunday's Golden Globes certainly did not disappoint this year (unlike last year's lackluster affair).  There was lots of colour and sparkle, as there should be, as well as interesting textures.  To start us off, I've grouped a few of my favourite jewel tone lovelies together:

Evan Rachel Wood in Gucci Première
I think this dress is my absolute favourite of the night!

Laura Dern in Andrew Gn

Zooey Deschanel in Prada
I love the matching clutch & how she embraces being a little bit awkward :)

But, what was going on with her hair??

Zooey's nails were dressed up for the occasion too ;)

Kelly Macdonald in Lorena Sarbu

Jenna Dewan in Lucia Hohan

Freida Pinto in Prada
she is always adorable

Emma Stone in Lanvin
another one of my favourites!

Julianna Margulies in Naeem Khan
the purple/green combo is very pretty

Viola Davis in Pucci

Jessica Alba in Gucci Première

Natalie Portman in Lanvin
I really like the colour but I'm not a fan of the extra hip...

Helen Mirren in Badgley Mischka
another fav - she looks AMAZING!!

Michelle Williams in Jason Wu
I think the headband might work on someone else, but makes her look too young...

Bérénice Bejo in Gucci Première

Tilda Swinton in Haider Ackermann
Tilda kind of scares me, but I love how the look is different & refreshing

A Couple of Canaries

Paula Patton in Monique Lhullier
She was going cray cray with the vamping, but she seemed to be having a good time ;)

Maria Menounos in Blumarine

Ladies in Red

Dianna Agron in Giles

Reese Witherspoon in Zac Posen
I'm a little on-the-fence about this look...

Stacey Keibler (and George Clooney) in Valentino
did NOT like the front of this dress, but love the back bow :)

Angelina Jolie in Versace
she is so severe & I couldn't decide if I liked her look or not...?

Blushing Beauties

Charlize Theron in Christian Dior Couture

Kate Beckinsale in Cavalli

Julie Bowen in Reem Acra
this dress looked good in some angles, not in others...

Heidi Klum in Calvin Klum
it's kind of boring (especially for Heidi), but I like the blush/turquoise combo


Diane Lane in Reem Acra

Hailene Woodley in Marchesa

Nicole Richie in Julien Macdonald
this dress looks much better in photos than it did on TV - also, I like the back more than the front...

Lea Michele in Marchesa
she drives me nuts and this dress is a bit over the top, but I kind of love it

In Black & White

Claire Danes in J. Mendel
she has a difficult shape but I thought this was a much better choice than some of her previous dresses...

Kate Winslet in Jenny Packham
love her, but this is another on-the-fence look...

Livia Firth (& the darling Colin Firth, of course) in Giorgio Armani
designed for Livia's Green Carpet Challenge, this dress was created from recycled plastic bottles!

Rooney Mara in Nina Ricci
I wasn't as fond of this dress as I was of some of Rooney's other recent picks, but I still liked it & I loved her hair!

Well, there you have it.  What were your favourite Golden Globe red carpet looks??!
