The Best Dressed of The Week: Golden Globes 2012

Claire Danes - Winner of Best Actress for her role in Television Drama Series Homeland
Simple and streamlined with effortless updo and black J. Mendel dress with sexy silver cut-out, Danes looked dazzling. She suits the dark smokey eye with classic red lip look and the dress was the perfect choice.

Tilda Swinton -  Winner of Best Actress in Motion Picture Drama We Need to Talk About Kevin
Queen of the elfin and avant-garde, Tilda's outfit by Haider Ackermann was my second favourite of the entire night. Pastel blue stands out against the red carpet, as well as her flawless, creamy skin and blonde crop swept to the side. Teamed with sheeny blue cropped sleeve jacket combined with her demure yet statuesque pose, creates a massively flattering and effective silhouette and of course, a huge statement. 

Kristen Wiig - Nominee for Best Actress in Motion Picture Comedy Bridesmaids  
I hadn't noticed it until I saw this picture, perhaps partly because I wasn't familiar with her prior to comedy smash hit Bridesmaids and she has recently dyed her hair dark brown, but Wiig is really beautiful. Here, she has that Californian vibe going on with tousled hair and minimal jewels- hooray for no diamonds- which I think makes this nude Bill Blass dress with pulled in waist with thigh-high slit, an absolute triumph. I'm now excited to see what she will be working next. 

Zooey Deschanel - Nominee for Best Actress in Comedy New Girl
Without a doubt the best look of the entire event, Zooey never fails to bring retro to the now and does so perfectly with this gorgeous neon green and black Prada gown. Her skin looks phenomenal against the mixture of light bead detailing on the dress, as well as the darkness of her eye make-up and 60's bouncy beehive hairstyle. I cannot say enough good things about it. 

Nicole Richie
Although I'm not exactly sure why she was in attendance, she certainly made the effort anyway and came out triumphant, as you can see from this sexy, clingy number by British designer Julien Macdonald. Simple yet very effective, this tank dress cut low at the back is sheer flawless elegance. The touch of silver and gold accessories finish the look and the beehive scooped-up ponytail hairdo is beautiful.

Others haven't been as complimentary of either her simple hairstyle or the skin tight Marchesa creation, but I think she looks smoking. The dazzling silver suits her brunette locks and olive skin. Although maybe it wouldn't have been quite as sexy if it wasn't for the cut-out detailing around the bust. Either way, I enjoy the slightly looser skirt which clings to her legs but falls to the floor and around her feet. She requires nothing more than an emerald green ring worn proudly on her finger (cue the hand on waist pose) as she works this dress really well. 

Dianna is absolutely gorgeous in general although I would have liked her to have looked less innocent in the face here- perhaps lose the smile and pay more attention on the eyes to really make them grab you. Nonetheless, the second member of the Glee club to be on my chosen line-up, was worked on with magic by Giles with this laser-cut dress made up of layers of scarlet red fabric from which begins at just above her collar bone before tumbling all the way down to the floor. She has the pale complexion that I think enables her to carry this daring colour off so well, of course teamed with classic red lip and effortless, almost unkempt hairdo. I love how you can see her skin peeking through the slight layers before the eyes are directed to the intricate workmanship and cutting detail scattered down and around her legs. Such a great dress.

And as for the boys... handsome or what?!
