The Golden Globe Awards are exciting for so many reasons, but for us, none more so than setting the major trends for the upcoming red carpet season. And the trends were as clearly defined as we’ve ever seen them! Pinks and peaches ruled, from Drew Barrymore’s barely-nude Atelier Versace to Nicole Kidman’s pale Nina Ricci to Maggie Gyllenhaal’s iridescent RM by Roland Mouret to Emily Blunt’s delicate Dolce & Gabbana to Diane Kruger’s vivid Christian Lacroix. Purples made a strong showing with Sandra Bullock’s Bottega Veneta, Jennifer Garner’s Atelier Versace and Jane Krakowski’s J. Mendel. And what about gold? Anna Paquin, Jaime Pressly and Toni Collette all glittered in gilded gowns. Fergie and Courteney Cox chose beaded waistlines while Kyra Sedgwick and Rose Byrne went for pins at their waists. Black got sexy with fishtails for Penélope Cruz in Armani Privé and Vera Farmiga in Dolce & Gabbana, while Jennifer Aniston and Jodie Foster went for racy slits in their gowns. As for beauty, Cameron Diaz and January Jones both hit the key trends of the night — slicked-back hair and bold red lips. Tell us: What was your favorite look of the night? What was your favorite trend?

Why is Jennifer Aniston right in front of the Best Dressed List! I do not get it! It may be rainy, but her hair sure looked like a storm swept through it.

I could think of much-better dressed ladies to be in front, like Drew, Nicole, Diane, Kate or Olivia. But Jennifer? Aside from the hair issue, her bust area seems to need support and holding up. There is no outstanding feature on her black dress. I think the best black dress was a toss-up between Penelope or Marion.
