best of the 2012 golden globes.

as usual, i am a day late and a dollar short. or as i like to say, i am really busy. you have already seen everyone else's top picks from this years golden globes and i could have easily skipped over this post, but there were far too many well dressed women on this year' red carpet. the golden globes is one of the more relaxed, fun awards shows and these women really took that into account when picking their dresses this year. taking risks really paid off and kept the red carpet interesting.
we saw the usual mermaid style dresses, which to me, is starting to get old. we saw lots of greens, emerald blues, nude & light pinks, and yellow. there was the return of the t-shirt dress, in both long and short sleeves (one of my favorite looks), lots of sequins, interesting cut outs, and something new: evening headbands. 
now without further ado, here are my picks:

the top five

michelle williams in jason wu

this dress is one of the most wearable looks on the carpet. it is the perfect michelle look. it wasn't the most outrageous choice, but she looked beautiful and it was my first look at the runway headband. here's to hoping there is something similar in the jason wu for target collection.


chalize theron in dior

when i first saw her, i wasn't sure. i thought the bow was a bit 80s. considering we are into the 70s and 90s right now, the 80s wouldn't be right. but as i saw the dress move and in this particular picture, i was sold. she is a dior girl. it is a beautiful, goddess meets princess look. it is so sexy without being sexy, with the headband adding a bit of a demure feel.


claire danes in j. mendel

claire sure knows how to dress her body shape. from her dress at the globes last year to the one this year, she knows how to be sexy without showing legs or cleavage. this dress has interesting details that give this dress the right amount of edge. i hope she continues to kill the red carpet this season.


salma hayek in gucci

this is a modern version of a film noir look mixed with a little art deco. it is so glamourous. the dress is unique and was hard to look away from, shining, shimmering, and changing in the light.


emma stone in lanvin

this girl is killing it time and time again. i could not stop thinking about this look for days after i saw her on the red carpet. she is stunning. the dress is so different. it so fun, yet edgy. she is young and is having so much fun with fashion. i have heard mice reviews on the belt, but i love it. an oversized eagle on the red carpet, hell yeah.
