Red was the color of the night for Golden Globes fashion

The Golden Globes red carpet was filled with red-hot dresses, up-to-there slits and a hint of sea-foam.

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 Cctress in a comedy or musical.
