2012 Golden Globes - Black

Rooney Mara wore black, as was expected.  The Best Actress (Drama) nominee wore a Nina Ricci Pre-Fall 2012 gown.  The plunge-neck tulle bodice & long column skirt were simple yet perfect for the scale of the event.  Rooney chose to sweep back her bangs and wore very less make-up.

Debra Messing wore a taffeta, one-shoulder dress by Monique Lhuillier, choosing to add colour via her fabulous Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Kate Winslet went for colour block in a gorgeous, silk dress by Jenny Packham.  The key-hole top & white skirt were punched up with a gold embellished waist belt.   Kate wore her hair in an updo and added gold earrings by Fred Leighton & carried an embellished clutch.

Julianne Moore left behind her crazy dress sense and opted instead, for this strapless, Chanel gown that has a peplum silhouette (tad unnecessary).  She wore her hair in shiny waves and added green tasseled earrings (an emerging trend & gorgeous with her hair colour).

Mila Kunis, who's the new face of Miss Dior, wore a classic gown from the Christian Dior Spring 2012 collection.  Compared to her efforts last year, this felt a little bland.  But then she was only presenting so it's fair.  She put her hair in a sleek bun and wore Cartier jewels.

Salma Hayek looked beautiful in a Gucci Premiere gown.  The strapless dress had a bedazzled bodice and a shimmery pleated skirt.  Salma kept her hair down, in tousled waves,  wore a neutral lip colour, gold statement earrings and carried a mini satin clutch.

Zooey Deschanel was a pleasant surprise in a custom Prada dress.  The 'New Girl' actress, who was nominated in the Best Actress in a TV Series (Comedy) was delightful in the unusual black satin dress that had lime green and silver beading.  A glossy, retro hairstyle and pink lips completed her look.

Claire Danes wore a custom J. Mendel Pre-Fall 2012 gown which according to the Best Actress in a TV Series award winning actress, was "all about the back".  And rightly so, the backless monochromatic gown was bang on trend with all that embellishment.  Claire went with a messy bun (which we rarely see on her) and red lips which were nice changes.

Meryl Streep, who won the Best Actress (Drama) award for 'Iron Lady' wore a black shirt dress with lace & a taffeta skirt - all by Alessandra Rich.  She looks elegant.  And can do no wrong.
