Celebs managed to stand out on the red carpet (despite wearing so much red!) in a variety of sleek and satin-y gowns at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards.
And the awards go to... Angelina Jolie (who exuded killer confidence in an Atelier Versace gown with a pop of red along the collarbone), Emma Stone (who looked like a Roman empress in a plunging, burgundy and ruby Lanvin gown cinched at the waist) and Salma Hayek(who proved a warrior princess in a gold-plated Gucci gown that concluded with countless, shimmer-clad pleats).
Reese Witherspoon (who looked red-hot in a corseted Zac Posen fishtail gown) and Natalie Portman (who ravished in a rosy, custom Lanvin creation in pink and red) were also among those sharing in the spotlight. (If you recall, she also opted for pink, though pastel, and red at last year's awards.)
