DESPITE the huge number of award categories in the Golden Globes, when it comes to fashion there are only ever two sections – the hits and misses.
For cool glamour Cate Blanchett in Armani led the pack. With high lace at the neck and a how-low-can-you-go back she was simply stunning.
The low-cut back was a favourite among the winning ladies, with Robin Wright opting for a gold sequin number that showcased her incredibly toned physique.
As usual, Helen Mirren proved that when you dress for your shape you're always top of the envy list – she opted for a jade tulle and chiffon gown with a draped waist and an orchid-flower design from Jenny Packham.
Kate Beckinsale glowed in Zuhair Murad while Miranda Kerr chose a dramatic black dress with a thigh-high split from Pucci – incompatible with underwear but stunning on the Australian model.
White was another favoured trend, with Jennifer Lawrence in a Dior creation with two tiers on a full skirt cinched at the waist and below by black trim.
Amy Adams wore two shades of red in a backless high-waisted halter dress, while newcomer Lupita Nyong'o, who plays Patsey in 12 Years A Slave, looked regal in a red column dress by Ralph Lauren and Emma Watson wowed in Dior.
Surprisingly, Sandra Bullock was a lesson in colour blocking gone wrong with pink on top, black in the middle and sky blue at the hem of a full-skirted gown by Prabal Gurung. Not her finest fashion moment.
A normally glowing Victoria Smurfit looked pale and washed out with too-blonde hair and a gold-sequinned number that looked baggy on her small frame.
Liberty Ross looked drab in some vampire-inspired creation, while reports that Alexa Chung looks good in anything seemed widely off the mark judging by her shapeless champagne satin grown.
