Red was the color of the night as Zooey Deschanel, Claire Daines, Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Watts, Alison Pill, Melissa Rauch, Megan Hilty and Amy Poehler each wore the hue. As Katherine Boyle explained: Sure, there were other whimsical gowns that struck a starker contrast with the carpet. Anne Hathaway shined in white Chanel, and Jessica Chastain looked cheery in sea foam. But in the style stakes, red conquered the Globes. Has there ever been a better example of blending in to stand out?
There were a few instances of what the Style Blog coined as “Jolie-legging” from Halle Barry and Katharine McPhee.
The pastel frocks seemed to work for Jessica Chastain who accepted the award for Best Actress in a drama, and Anne Hathaway, who took home the Globe for Best Actress in a comedy or musical.
Katherine Boyle outlines which stars chose to wear the popular color, and who designed it:
There were few shrinking violets at Sunday night’s Golden Globes. Rather, the roses of the red carpet were in their fullest bloom. Zooey Deschanel of “New Girl”blossomed in a full-skirted taffeta gown by Oscar de la Renta.
Alison Pill of “The Newsroom” sizzled in a Memeka Studio gown by designer Gustavo Cadile. Megan Hilty of “Smash” proved, once again, that some like it really hot.
And one month after giving birth, “Homeland’s” Claire Danes made us boil with envy in a plunging scarlet gown designed by Versace.
Stars of the silver screen also donned the cardinal color of the evening. Naomi Watts opted for a backless, long-sleeved gown in the deepest crimson, by Zac Posen. “Silver Linings Playbook”nominee Jennifer Lawrence chose a Dior haute couture gown in the same hue that she wore for her 2011 Oscars debut. Even Amy Poehler wore dark crimson — to roast James Cameron. (Ouch! That was a burn.)
Zooey Deschanel took Golden Globes fashion a step further with her nail art, Monica Hesse writes:
Attention: We have just our first Zooey Deschanel moment of the evening, in which she managed to up-twee her already astronomically high twee quotient by showing off her “thematic” fingernails, depicting a vintage camera and silver film. Et Voila: (click here to see nail art)
Adorkable (not our word!) nail art is apparently a regular weapon in the Zooey Deschanel arsenal of cuteness. Witness the tuxedo fingers she wore last year.
