2014 Golden Globe Awards ~ Best Dressed

There were so many fabulous frocks on the red carpet at the 2014 Golden Globes, I almost didn't know where to begin with this best dressed list. Soon to be moms, like Olivia Wilde, who glittered in a long-sleeve emerald Gucci gown and Kerry Washington, wearing a sleeveless dove grey Balenciaga silk crepe dress, knocked it out of the park.

Then there was the bevy of red dresses that sparked a fashion firestorm in the twitter-sphere. Everyone was talking about the red hot ensembles, especially Amy Adams, who kept with the theme of her American Hustle wardrobe opting for an elegant Valentino halter gown with a daring plunging neckline. And can we please commend Emma Watson for adding some youthful flair to the red carpet in that sensational backless Dior ensemble with tailored black pants? 

How dapper were all the men last night? Leonardo DiCaprio never looked more handsome accepting his long awaited Best Actor Award wearing a black two-button Giorgio Armani tux with silver Jennifer Meyer cuff links. Chris Pine walked on stage and I nearly fell off the couch. His black Ermenegildo Zenga couture suit was impeccably tailored. I loved his Tod's black patent loafers. I cannot forget Bradley Cooper, the American Hustle actor impressed in a sleek Tom Ford tuxedo with a classic bow tie.  

Jennifer Lawrence can't get out of that Dior contract soon enough for me. I would really like to see her wear edgier designs like Prabal Gurung or even Marchesa. Paula Patton disappointed me in her train wreck white gown that she could only seem to waddle in because it was too tight on her. I cannot even get started on Lena Dunham, who managed to ruin a beautiful sunny yellow Zac Posen gown. 

Here are my top five picks for last nights best dressed celebrities.

Jennifer Lawrence in Christian Dior Couture at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Jennifer Lawrence made the even the flu look elegant in this strapless coral Christian Dior Haute Couture organza ball gown featuring a metallic belt at the waist.

There was much buzz about Jennifer's bust line. Did we love  or loathe the structured corset with a funky cone-shaped bra courtesy of Madonna in the 1990's? I did not find it to be distracting from her overall style in the least. I thought it was a good mix of sophisticated with fresh youthful femininity.

The young star, who won Best Actress for her performance in the Silver Linings Playbook, styled her look with glittering Chopard gems, Brian Atwood heels and a Ferregamo clutch.

A soft wavy up-do and deep kohl-rimmed eye added to the drama of her ensemble.

What do you think of Jennifer's red carpet look?
