The fashion parade down the Golden Globes red carpet featured several standout dresses as well as several fashion fails, some by usually well-dressed celebrities. We've picked some of our favourite dresses and some that we really disliked.
Jennifer Lawrence, Best Actress - Comedy/Musical for Silver Linings Playbook
- was a dream in Dior. Her strapless red ballgown was cinched in by a thin metallic belt and brought to mind a previous red carpet triumph - Calvin Klein, also red, at the Oscars in 2011.
We also loved Anne Hathaway, Best Supporting Actress for Les Miserables
, who was pristine in a white Chanel column.
Also working the red trend was Claire Danes, Best TV Dramatic Actress, in Versace. Claire wore virtually no accessories - but she didn't need any, everyone was far too busy looking at her fantastic post-baby body. Incredibly, Claire gave birth to her son just one month ago.
Jessica Chastain, Best Actress - Drama for Zero Dark Thirty
, also acquitted herself with honours in ice blue Calvin Klein, cut daringly low in front.
Taylor Swift and Jessica Chastain.

star Julie Bowen picked a great shade of blue but her unflattering, draped Halston dress wears
