To be honest, 75% of the reason I watch any award show is for the red carpet arrivals. With the exception of a few candid jokes and inappropriate commentary, the red carpet is really the best part of the show. And the fashion & beauty of the 2012 Golden Globe Awards did not disappoint!
Some of the evening’s most gorgeous looks included: Piper Perabo in Olivier Theyskens for Theory, Dianna Agron in Giles Deacon, Kate Beckinsale in Roberto Cavalli, Shailene Woodley in Marchesa, Zooey Deschanel in Prada, Rooney Mara in Nina Ricci, Elle Macpherson in Zac Posen, Sarah Hyland in vintage Dolce & Gabbana, and Amanda Peet in Marc Jacobs.
Beauty trends: high pony tails, red lips, dark smoky glam eyes.

That’s a wrap, folks! The 2011 Academy Awards are officially over. Hollywood Blvd. is open once again.
Good show. Great opening! No real big surprises.
Loved Colin Firth’s speech! Natalie Portman’s sentiments showed off her grace much moreso than those at the Globes. And Randy Newman was pretty funny… Who knew?
But really it’s the red carpet portion of the show we like best. There were definitely some standout stunners this year, but as a whole – few were gasp-worthy.

Our #1 favorite: Mila Kunis in a romantic lavender Elie Saab.

#2 goes to Halle Berry in a stunning nude and crystal Marchesa.
#3 was Anne Hathaway in a sensational one-shouldered gold flapper-esque Oscar de la Renta. Nice work, Rachel Zoe!
Jewelry seemed a bit more understated than in past years. Although Nicole Kidman‘s gown wasn’t one of our faves, her Fred Leighton 150-carat 19th Century diamond Riviere choker that sparkled down her back was beyond breathtaking.
Honorable Mention goes to Marisa Tomei who went for 1950’s vintage glam in navy Charles James couture by Lily et Cie.
