Style has moved! come with us to mtv news »

The Hollywood Foreign Press' Golden Globe Awards is one of our favorite red carpet events of the year. Sure, there's the Oscars, the Grammys, and of course, our own Movie Awards and VMAs, but there's a spirited mix of glamour and richesse when it's not only the hottest names in film but in television as well. Plus, there's the heightened pressure of being the award ceremony RIGHT before the Academy Awards. We're sure that picking the 2012 Golden Globe Winners wasn't an easy task, but cutting down a list of the night's best dressed to our top 10 was a VERY SERIOUS challenge, too. After some HEATED debate and 11 pounds of sugar EACH (thank you, Momofuku cake truffles and Sour Patch children) in the Official MTV Style Situation Room, *wipes beads of sweat from sodden brow* we did it. Here we GO.

Dianna Agron in head-to-toe scarlet Giles Deacon may very well be our favorite look of the night. While wearing red on the red carpet is a risky move, this gown is genuinely a work of art and styled so expertly that Dianna more than pulls it off. She keeps her hair in a simple updo with bold red lips and minimizes jewelry to highlight the majestic laser-cut tiers and swans.

Zooey Deschanel Hair Nails Golden Globes

Zooey Deschanel looks glorious. The New Girl stunned at the Golden Globes with a brand new 'do and hyper-cute tuxedo nail art. Zooey's long, layered locks have been replaced with a voluminous bouffant bob, which topped off a custom green and black rhinestone-encrusted Prada gown and matching clutch. The actress looked VERY '60s chic with her high hair, below-the-brow blunt bangs, super thick lashes and heavily lined lids, buuuuuut our favorite part is hard to notice at first.

Zooey sported some completely awards show-appropriate nail art by decorating her tips with 10 teeny tuxedos. This design is easy to re-create—just lay down an opaque white polish for the base coat and then top it off with a black and white reversed French mani to make a curved cummerbund in this formal ensemble. To mimic the other details, use a toothpick for the dotted buttons and flood a simple figure eight with black for the bow tie. See? Thanks to Zooey, looking classy isn't SO hard.

Charlize Theron Michelle Williams Busy Philipps Headbands

After deliberating over all the stunning celebrities in their various Golden Globes red carpet ensembles, our eyes KEPT getting drawn to something sparkly peeking out from their hair—fancy headbands! Busy Philipps, Michelle Williams, and Charlize Theron all dressed up their immaculate flaxen 'dos with some serious sparklers to take their outfits to glamorous new heights.

Busy Philipps went with a double-stranded silver headband to add a touch of edginess to her tousled beehive. She paired it with minimal makeup (just some luscious lashes and a glossy lip), GIGANTOR drop diamond earrings, and a one-shoulder white fringe gown for a '20s flapper meets '60s hippie vibe. Michelle's strawberry-blonde, gamine pixie looked darling paired with a thick, black, vintage Fred Leighton satin headband decorated with a geometric diamond buckle and tiny diamond flowers. She matched black diamond studs with her band and sported a floor-length, royal purple, crushed-velvet-and-lace Jason Wu gown for a cute and cohesive ensemble. Plus, how awesome is it that these besties wore matching headgear? Awwww.

If there was one overwhelming trend the 2012 Golden Globes had going on, it was a serious case of the pales. Did all the stylists get together and party-phone this trend into existence or was this merely a coincidence? You could call it a parade of champagne, a pallid paradise, or a nakie-nudie FANTASIA OF FLESH TONES, but most of the dresses we spied this year were decidedly wan in the color department. Still, the ladies looked lovely!

If you squint your eyes while looking at Katharine McPhee, she totally transforms into Birthday Suit Barbie. Wearing a strapless midi, tea-length Donna Karan dress embellished with leaf-shaped sparkles and matching sky-high stiletto plats, we think she looks DAZZLING and ready for her Smash TV show. Sarah Hyland's vintage, beige lace Dolce & Gabbana gown with a black lace trim at the waist may have suffered a zipper malfunction (which had her handlers pinning her back into it on the red carpet), but she carried herself like a lady through it all. Poise! Heidi Klum was all sorts of GORGE in a wispy nude Calvin Klein dress accentuated with turquoise panache courtesy of one MAYJAH necklace by Lorraine Schwartz. But we're just getting started...there was a whole carnival of cream up in there, too.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
