2013 Golden Globes: Red Carpet Done Right

Last night was an epic evening for television. I frantically flipped back and forth between the season 2 premier of GIRLS (my favorite show on cable right now) and the 70th annual Golden Globes. But the center of my joy came from watching all the lovely ensembles worn by Hollywood A-listers on the red carpet.

There was A LOT of boob and leg going on....and I didn't mind it one bit! Hey, if you got it (and you're not too old), flaunt it! Here's a recap of some of my favorite looks of the night:

1. Rosario Dawson in Antonio Beradi:
I love the color on this peplum gown. It's fresh and playful, but still serious enough for an awards show. And the cap sleeve really shows off her perfectly toned arms!

 2. Sally Field in Alberta Ferretti: 
Gorgeous color and draping. Best of all, it's age appropriate without being matronly. 

 3. Nene Leakes in Carolina Herrera: 
I was pleasantly surprised with this look on Nene. I always love how she let's her larger-than-life personality star as the focal point, and keeps her ensembles classy and covered up. 
This dress is chic and fits her like a glove. Bravo, honey! 

 4. Kerry Washington in Miu Miu: 
Ms. Kerry has been SHUTTING DOWN red carpets lately during promo tours for Django. And this sheer + crystal embellished gown is what we've come to expect from the "Scandal" star. 

 5. Jennifer Lawrence in Dior: 
I love a good ball gown. And this corseted number by Dior does J. Law good! The color works well with her ivory skin and the metal belt...genius! 

6. Salma Hayek in Gucci:
I'm a lifelong card-carying member of the fabulous curvy girls club. And this beautiful strapless/sparkly Gucci gown has me wanting to elect Salma Hayek for club president!

 7. Dame Helen Mirren in Badgley Mischka: 
The dame definitely brought her A-game in this long, bodycon gown. The studded sleeves and bodice detail add the perfect amount of va va voom to an otherwise simple silhouette.

8. Kate Hudson in Alexander McQueen: 
Mama Kate simply shines in this gorgeous McQueen number. The cinched waist detail and mermaid hemline is giving me lots of old Hollywood glamor. Perfection!

  9. Eva Longoria in Pucci: 
Angelina really started something last year. This high slit trend ran amok during last night's red carpet presentation. But I have to give it to the former Mrs. Tony Parker, as she was my absolute favorite in the trend. The billowy train,  lace bodice and peek-a-boo cutout all worked together to create a stunning look.
