golden girls 2012

Awards season 2012 begins! And holy crap were there some amazing gowns tonight. There were the simple, the dramatic and the unusual. Here are some of my favorites:

Evan Rachel Wood in Gucci. This immediately caught my eye because of how insanely glamorous and intricate it is.

Charlize Theron in Dior. OMG. She is ethereal and gorgeous in this dress. I love the hairpiece and the leg being showed off. This is a MOVIE STAR dress. 

I didn't put this one first, but I do think it is my favorite. It's Zooey Deschanel in a one-of-a-kind Prada. So amazing. I love the fluro green detailing. I have a feeling this will be one that some people won't understand, but Zooey pulls it off so well. You can't see it in the photo, but she had tuxedos painted on her nails. Adorable. 

One of the evening's winners Claire Danes in J. Mendel. I love the detailing, especially on the back.

My girl crush, Jessica Chastain, in Givenchy with Harry Winston jewelry. She looks so elegant and vintage Hollywood. Very lovely. And I love a girl with pale skin and red hair. 

Michelle Williams wearing Jason Wu (side note: I can't wait for his Target line next month!). She stays true to a vintage style, and I love it. She's also pretty versatile with it. This dress is major, and I'm obsessed with the sapphire shade. Another great hairpiece too!

Art Deco is one of my favorite designs and I was so glad that Nicole Richie wore it in her Julien Macdonald gown. She's also carrying a clutch from her House of Harlow 1960 line (one of my favorites). Nicole's style has evolved so much over the years, and this was absolutely breathtaking.

Another Nicole who nailed it. Nicole Kidman wore a gorgeous Versace with beaded embellishments that reminded me a little of Cate Blanchett's 2011 Oscar gown that I adored

I was so glad that Angelina Jolie did something a little different. This Atelier Versace gown is unique and gorgeous, but the real beauty is how amazingly it fit her. It literally looked like she was sewn into the dress! Again, I'm not sure how other people will respond to this choice, but I love risk takers. Plus, can she ever really look bad? 

Last but not least, ultra-cool girl Rooney Mara in Nina Ricci. This was my second-favorite look from the evening. She looks so high-fashion and effortless. I'm happy to see she stayed with a look she was obviously comfortable with. Who can go wrong with a gorgeous black dress anyway? 

What were some of your favorite looks?
