Golden Globes: The recap

Kate Winslet walked away with Golden Globe awards in two film categories - best actress and best supporting actress. She was classically stunning in Yves Saint Laurent.

There was no shortage of glamour on the red carpet at the Golden Globes.
A few trends emerged, but most celebs were doing their own thing, says Nicole Phelps, executive editor at A return to classic Hollywood glamour could be seen with pulled-back, demure hairstyles on celebs such as award winner Laura Dern.

Then there was Angelina Jolie in a metallic Versace gown with a thigh-high slit.
"There was a lot of gray, and shades of gray," Phelps says, which isn't always a successful or popular color on the runway. Celebs who pulled it off with panache were Salma Hayek in Dior, America Ferrera in a asymmetrical Oscar de la Renta and Drew Barrymore in John Galliano for Dior Couture.

Cameron Diaz was a standout in a sea of black and white in her bright pink Chanel Haute Couture gown and loose, wavy hair.

Most fashion leaders opted for classic, refined looks, Phelps says. Among the standouts: Kate Winslet in Yves Saint Laurent with a brooch pinned at the waist and Maggie Gyllenhaal in a Lanvin piece off the Spring runway.

Phelps gave big love to the dapper men, including Tom Cruise in a classic tux.
