Talk about painting the town red!
The 71st Golden Globe Awards showcased designer dresses in every color of the rainbow, but the stars took the red carpet to a whole new level (and kind of literally) in a succession of brightly-hued gowns that coordinated with that all-important awards show walkway.
Amy Adams channeled her winning "American Hustle" role with a bright red Valentino halter dress with a plunging neckline. The 39-year-old actress beat out front runner Meryl Streep in the Best Actress in a Motion Picture category for her role in the David O. Russell film, but it was her plunging dress (no bra required!) that really had tongues wagging.
Peggy who? Elisabeth Moss looked nothing like her '60s self with an embellished crimson and black J. Mendel dress. The "Mad Men" star -- who also sported a super cute bob -- capped off her Golden Globe win for her role in "Top of the Lake" with a profanity-laced speech -- this after she flipped the bird during a red carpet pit stop with Giuliana Rancic.
Newcomer Lupita Nyong'o has already been named one of Vogue's 10 Rising Style Stars of 2014, so it's no surprise that her red caped Ralph Lauren gown was the talk of the town. The "12 Years a Slave" star and recent Yale grad told Rancic there's no pressure to be a fashionista: "So far I only wear things that I feel speak to me," she said.
Double nominee Julia Louis-Dreyfus stood out in a red Narciso Rodriguez number, while Christmas came late for her opponent Edie Falco. The "Nurse Jackie" star wore a red satin Lanvin with a giant red bow at the neckline, garnering mixed reviews from critics.
Speaking of mixed reviews, Emma Watson boasted the most confusing getup of the evening. Her bright red peek-a-boo surprise was business in the front and a party in the back; the Dior gown opened up in the back to reveal black cropped pants underneath. You can see a pic of the unusual design here.
And Taylor Swift was hot, hot, hot in a strapless cherry red Caroline Herrera gown, but did she get burned later in the show? According to Entertainment Weekly, Golden Globes host Tina Fey seemingly took a jab at the "One Chance" singer when she told pal and fellow host Amy Poehler: "I love you, and there's a special place in hell for you!"
So, what does that have to do with Swift? Lest we not forget, the singer took offense last year at the Globes when the comedic co-hosts joked that she should "stay away from Michael J. Fox's son." (Because, you know, Swift likes to kiss and tell!) In a later interview, Swift threw out this quote: "There's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women."
And, apparently, for women who throw shade at the Globes.
