Golden Globe Statement Dresses

I love watching the red carpet! So many lovely stars strutting their stuff in gorgeous to die for gowns, sooo envious! Sharing with you guys my favorite 2012 Golden Globe gowns:

Let's start with some Hollywood power couples. The lovely Nicole Kidman and her hubby, country star, Keith Urban. Nicole looks gorgeous and ever so ageless as usual. I'm kind of inbetween about her dress. She definitely looks good in it, but do I love it? Not really. I just feel she could do better..

Of course, you can't talk about a Hollywood couple without a nod to Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt. Angelina looks amazing. Probably because she typically likes to keep it basic to black. I love this fitted cream gown with red accents. Her infamous pucker complemented with a rich red as well. Her hair pulled back was perfect to showcase the dress.

I'm going to add in Stacy Kiebler with her best accessory yet, her arm candy, George Clooney.  Ever since Stacy and George got together, I've been seeing a lot of photos of them together at events.  I've never really noticed her before, but I guess being with an A-lister, your style must be top notch.  She's doing a good job, she looks great, love the hair and makeup and the gown is simple but still stunning on her.

Next contenders, Glee Sweethearts, Dianna Argon vs. Lea Michele:
I actually like Dianna Argon's gown, its definitely very different, could be construed to be a lace table cloth, although all might not agree, there is something I like about it! Lea Michele always knows how to work it on the red carpet with her smoldering look and a gorgeous long sleeved gown. Although, I feel this look has been done 1 too many times already. Edit - I just got a look at the front of the dress and its def a more risque look. I think I would have preferred a more understated elegance.

Sofia Vergara looks gorgeous in a midnight blue gown.  For some reason when I saw this dress, I wondered if she gets a lot of comparisons to Eva Longoria.  Paula Patton from MI3 (had to look up where she was from since I haven't seen it) looked AMAZING in a canary yellow gown.  She definitely brightened up the red carpet in this number and made a statement that she is here to stay.

Emma Stone's burgundy gown wasn't my favorite of her looks, but I appreciated the fact she is trying new styles and how confident she looks on the red carpet. Rachel Evan Wood's green dress reminds me of a mermaid, but if anyone can rock this look, its her!

Jessica Alba looks gorgeous and well put together in her pink embroidered gown. I'm on the fence about Charlize Theron's look. She being so ridiculously gorgeous can pull off just about anything. Initially I was a little confused about the dress, but after looking at a few more pictures - I see it is a long dress with a large slit. I think I would have liked the look as a whole if she left home the headband. But its Dior chiffon, so hard not to love it!? What do you think?

I love nude and lace dresses, but I'm undecided about the fit of the top of Jessica Biel's gown. It seems she could have a more flattering cut although I do like the dreamy Victorian style of the dress. LOVE Kate Beckinsale's smile! She is working the dress and having fun all jeweled out. The only thing I dislike are her shoes... she should have wore something daintier to go with her gown!

There's many more I missed, but those are few that stood out!  Anyone I missed that you especially liked? Or who was your absolute favorite of the night?
