    Emma Stone chose a dramatic plum and red Lanvin gown for the 2012 Globes. Most eye-catching was the dress' belt, which was adorned with a gilded eagle. Stone also rocked Lorraine Schwartz earrings and a Cartier bag, but her dress was the definite focus of the night.

    In 2012, blush seemed to be the shade of the night, and it suited Julie Bowen well. Her Reem Acra dress featured beaded chic cap-sleeves and a tulle skirt. Although it did have some people wondering why she chose it, as Olivia Wilde wore the same dress in grey in 2008 to the Emmy Awards.

    We loved Kyra Sedgwick's 2011 canary-yellow gown by Emilio Pucci. The actress sported a middle-parted updo, and looked chic and red-carpet ready. Her stacked turquoise cuffs and earrings were a perfect contrast to the dress' bold color choice, and strengthened the bohemian look.

    Eva Longoria wore a stunning Zac Posen dress to the 2011 Golden Globes. The black gown was tied at the waist with a ribbon bow and topped off with a diamond brooch. The newly-single actress looked old-school glam in her bold choice.
