Did you watch the Golden Globe Awards last Sunday? If you did, whose look was the best for you? Whose was the worst?

Hollywood’s finest definitely gathered to celebrate the event, and let’s just say we had quite a blast watching all of them work their dapper suits and gorgeous gowns. Red definitely ruled the night, followed by shots of nude and black. Mermaid cut gowns were also very much in abundance. But of the many stunners that walked the red carpet, only a few stood out and took our breath away. Here’s a round-up of the looks that really made us say WOW!

1. Taylor Swift in Donna Karan Atelier (Full Story)

We have to admit, we didn’t expect the plum confection from the country cutie, but she sure looked amazing in her Donna Karan Atelier gown, didn’t she? The dark shade made her skin glow and we love how she paired it with beautiful drop earrings in the same tone – very sophisticated, very classy, and very grown-up!

2. Kate Hudson in Alexander McQueen

A lot of fashion critics overlooked Kate’s gorgeous Alexander McQueen dress at the event, but we don’t want that for the blond charmer. She simply deserves 5 stars for pulling off a McQueen oh-so fabulously. That dress is so DIVINE, don’t you think? It’s glam, sophisticated, and very classy. And we love how she kept her hair down instead of putting it up:

3. Zooey Deschanel in Oscar de la Renta

As mentioned, red ruled the Golden Globes red carpet last Sunday, and leading the pack was ‘New Girl’ star, Zooey Deschanel. The doe-eyed actress was simply stunning in her scarlet-hued Oscar de la Renta frock. Red lips, pristine white pearls, and alabaster skin made her the star of the night.

4. Julianne Hough in Monique Lhuillier

Julianne got a lot of flak for wearing this metal-embellished Monique Lhuillier gown to the Globes, but we seriously think she looked wonderful in it. The updo, the smoky eye make-up, and the nude lips were the perfect finish to such an amazing dress:

5. Jessica Alba in Oscar de la Renta

Yes, besides red being the color of the night, mermaid cut gowns were quite aplenty too. Jessica Alba for instance, looked utterly delectable in her coral=hued mermaid gown by Oscar de la Renta. It was the perfect shade for her tanned skin. She finished it with a Harry Winston diamond necklace that reportedly had a 5 million dollar price tag on it:

6. Jennifer Lawrence in Christian Dior

Another one who nailed it on the red carpet (and also took home a Globe) was Jennifer Lawrence. ‘The Hunger Games’ star was breathtaking in her red strapless Christian Dior gown, which by the way, highlighted the bombshell’s uber sexy hourglass body:

7. Amy Adams in Marchesa

Another lady who turned up jaw droppingly beautiful at the event was actress Amy Adams. Several celebrities – Hayden Panettiere, Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried – attended the event in neutral-hued frocks but it was Amy who simply got it right from head to toe in her delectable Marchesa gown.
