Golden Globes: Red Carpet Trends

Perhaps absence does make the heart grow fonder. Or in the case of the Golden Globes – a low-key affair in 2008 due to the Hollywood writers' strike – skipping a year makes the fashion more fabulous.

There was no shortage of glamour on the red carpet.

Gowns were long, jewels were big and the sophistication level high.

Pretty but unwieldy trains were one of the more prominent trends of the night. Eva Longoria in Reem Acra, Christina Applegate in Roberto Cavalli and Miley Cyrus in Marchesa were just a few of the celebs getting dresses stuck on shrubbery (or underfoot) while looking fab.

Statement jewelry pieces haven't lost their luster. Lorraine Schwartz creations shone on the necks of Elizabeth Banks and Beyonce, among others.
