The Golden Globe Awards is the first major awards ceremony of Hollywood’s annual Awards season and is really the most entertaining of the group. With this year’s Golden Globe’s over, we have the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards, the BAFTAs (not actual Hollywood, but it counts) and the Academy Awards to look forward to. With so many events following in swift succession, the stars are kicking their fashion games into high gear, and this year, many have started early!

The 74th annual Golden Globe Awards took place on January 8th at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, and there was some seriously fab fashion on show. Many of the stars showed up looking their best, but here are my favourite looks of the night!

Evan Rachel Wood- custom Altuzarra suit, Neil Lane jewelry, Judith Leiber bag, Jimmy Choo heels

My favourite look of the night! I'm always happy to see starlets show up in a suit and this is one of the best examples I've seen. Everything about this look is perfect- from the suit's expert tailoring, to the styling, MUA and accessories.

Ruth Negga- custom Louis Vuitton gown, Fred Leighton & Gemfields jewelry

This futuristic gown is one of the best things I've seen coming out of the Louis Vuitton ateliers in a long while, and it suited her perfectly. It's the dress of a scifi-goddess and Ruth has both the personality and bearing to work this type of look. Her styling was incredible too- the hair and makeup is Old Hollywood glamourous and the jewelry is eye-catching enough to be interesting without distracting from the gown.

Another look at the jewels- a rose gold cuff with white diamond trim featuring a faceted 25.51 carat Mozambican Ruby.

Olivia Culpo- Zuhair Murad Haute Couture gown, Rubeus Milano bag, Schutz shoes, Lorraine Schwartz jewelry

She committed to the Frida Khalo look and it worked in an over the top way. I like seeing prints on the red carpet and this abstract floral pattern is really great.

Natalie Portman- custom Prada gown, Tomasino clutch, Jimmy Choo heels, Tiffany & Co. jewelry

Natalie Portman has been channeling Jackie Kennedy Onassis's classic style for a while now, and it's a look that suits her well. She looked lovely.

Jessica Chastain- custom Prada gown, Piaget jewelry

This colour is absolute perfection on Jessica Chastain, and is one of the main reasons that I love this look so much. The fit is also spectacular on her, and the details are gorgeous On the whole she is red carpet perfection.

Caitriona Balfe- Delpozo gown, Jimmy Choo bag, Loriblu heels, Neil Lane jewelry

This look was a personal best for Miss Balfe's red carpet style, and stood out as one of the chicest looks on that red carpet. The gown is understated but elegantly bold, and she works it! Image GETTY IMAGES/VOGUE.COM

Also, I love her after party look: a gunmetal lamé Maria Lucia Hohan gown, an Emm Kuo bag, Jimmy Choo heels and Amrapali silver, diamond and enamel earrings.

Claire Foy- custom Erdem gown, Fred Leighton jewelry

I didn't like this gown when I first saw it on the red carpet since it seemed to wash out Ms. Foy's colouring under all the harsh camera lights. Then there's that sash... but it grew on me the more I saw it. It was love once I saw it on stage though. It's an interesting, eye catching, glamourous gown, and one that's perfectly suited for a lady portraying a young Queen Elizabeth. The sleeves and the colour make it a hard look for most women to pull off, but Ms. Foy looked absolutely gorgeous.

Meryl Streep- custom Givenchy Haute Couture gown, Harry Winston jewelry

An absolute queen, she looked stunning from every angle. I can't say much more than she was fantastic and I love her!  Image VANITYFAIR.COM

Zoe Saldana- custom Gucci gown, Bulgari jewelry

This is perhaps one of the best Gucci gowns I've seen in a while and I'm happy that I'm first seeing it on Ms. Saldana. It's such a hard style and colour to pull off that only someone with her unique style personality, beautiful colouring and bearing could ever do it justice. She looks like a chic bohemian princess in a gown that could so easily make a lesser actress look like a sad pile of frumpy chiffon. Image GETTY IMAGES/VOGUE.COM

Naomie Harris- custom Armani Privé gown, Jimmy Choo heels, Tiffany & Co. jewelry

I really, really love this gown! It's a quintessential Hollywood look- extravagant, sexy and beautifully detailed, but Ms. Harris' glamourous styling made it even better. Image VOGUE.COM

Naomie's after party look also deserves a special mention (and I kind of wish that she'd saved this stunner for another award ceremony). She wore another Armani Prive gown and Tiffany & Co. Jewelry. Image GETTYIMAGES

Thandie Newton- Monse gown, Harry Winston jewelry

I love the flame effect those orange sequins created along the bottom of the skirt, leaving her looking like a glamourous phoenix!  Image VOGUE.COM

A better look at her platinum and white diamond earrings and necklace. I don't like the trend of wearing necklaces back to front, but this was an exception, all the drama at the front of the gown (the flame effect rose higher at the front) would have distracted from the beautiful rivière style necklace- worn this way, it's much easier to admire.

A pretty, if simple look. I wish she'd gone with a more elaborate hairstyle.  Image HARPERSBAZAAR.COM

Ms. Bell also wore some platinum and white diamond cuff bracelets, but her earrings were my favourite accessory. Harry Winston's diamond triple hoop earrings have long been some of my favourite designs.  Image THECOURTJEWELLER.COM

Viola Davis- custom Micheal Kors (gasp) gown, Judith Leiber clutch, Harry Winston jewelry

Viola Davis looks best when she takes a simple approach to her red carpet styling. This vibrant yellow sequinned gown looked spectacular, especially with it's sleek styling.  Image REX

Teresa Palmer- Armani Prive gown, Jimmy Choo clutch, Sophis Webster heels, Niwaka Collections jewelry

I love seeing velvet on the red carpet as it pushes the luxe factor of any garment up a few notches. Teresa Palmer looked Old Hollywood glamourous in this draped midnight blue number, and I loved her sleek styling and minimalist diamond and sapphire jewelry. Simply gorgeous.

Emma Stone- Valentino Haute Couture Gown, Valentino bag, Jimmy Choo heels, Tiffany & Co. jewelry

I would have liked this gown much more had it been in a deep jewel tone since I had a hard time determining if this colour was peach, pink or ivory. Imagine it in emerald green or a sapphire blue! Still, it's beautiful, and Emma looks great.  Image VOGUE.COM/POPSUGAR.COM

Winona Ryder- custom Victor & Rolf gown

I can't critique Winona Ryder's look because it fits so well with her personality. This is the essential gothic princess gown, and it looked so good on her because it fits that dark, quirky look that she constantly wears. Had this been any other actress, it probably would have come off as frumpy and awkward.  Image TOMANDLORENZO.COM

Sofía Vergara- Zuhair Murad Haute Couture gown, Lorraine Schwartz jewelry

I don't like sparkly flesh coloured gowns and I deplore 'cold shoulder' type sleeves, but I'm making an exception because it's such a departure from Ms. Vergara's usual red carpet fare. She looks great! I'm glad she chose slicker styling to tone the whole look down. Image VOGUE.COM
