Golden Globes 2011: best dressed

It’s that time of year again when the longest red carpet in Hollywood plays host to the 2011 Golden Globe Awards, and in case you missed our live coverage last night, we’re here to round up the front-running designer frocks and the what-were-you-thinking disasters.

From statement scarlet red and rich emerald green to romantic peaches and nudes, take a look at our pick of best dressed celebs that wowed at the Beverly Hilton last night…

Leading the way in the sartorial stakes was Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks (above) who looked positively stunning in a scarlet silk crepe floor length Romona Keveza gown – who said red heads can’t wear red?

Next up, Black Swan actress Natalie Portman survived the pressure in an elegant Viktor and Rolf silk blush dress with a red sequinned floral embellishment and matching red accessories that we got to see in all the more details when she picked up her Best Actress Award.

Angelina Jolie swapped her usual black on black look in favour of this long sleeved sequinned emerald green Versace gown – the power shoulders and scooped back complete with soft side-swept hair proved a huge hit for Angie.

Following in the Versace suit was Mad Men actress January Jones (no surprise there), who pulled off flashing all that flesh in a cut-away floor-sweeping red fringed gown.

Claire Danes led the way for spring style and opted for a neon pink Calvin Klein halterneck dress – it’s a hard cut to pull off, but the minimalist column cut and colour-popping pink saw this actress reach new sartorial heights (and pick up a Best Actress for TV Series Award).

Dressed in a jaw-dropping figure hugging Giorgio Armani dress was actress Anne Hathaway, who too went for big shoulders, long sleeves and sequins on her champagne-coloured dress.

Sticking to Armani was former face of the label Megan Fox, channelling a sweet Seventies siren in a blush pink gown with silver bead embellishment and a thigh-high split to boot alongside tumbling side waves.

Looking as stylish as ever in Zac Posen last night was pint-sized diva Eva Longoria- the figure-hugging cut, cinched-in waist and fish tail finish definitely worked a treat on this LBD.

Actress Olivia Wilde went all-out frothy in faded Marchesa, where her sparkling silver-sequinned bodice spilled into the pouffiest of black net skirts.

Black Swan star Mila Kunis followed in Angie’s footsteps and chose an emerald green ruched asymmetric gown by Vera Wang complete with a sleek silk train.

Michelle Williams came as Carey Mulligan for the night, but nevertheless looked perfectly pretty in a floral-embellished Valentino gown laced with white daisies and cute cut-out flower straps – her boyish pixie crop offsets the feminine dress with just enough edge.

Stay tuned for our round-up of the worst dressed from last night’s red carpet…
