How gorgeous were the dresses at the Golden Globes last night? My favorite look of the night was Charlize Theron's. The plunging neckline combined with the cascading bow and train were the perfect balance of sexy and edgy and sweet and classic. I also loved Elle McPherson's frothy Zac Posen gown.
Both of these dresses showed off one of the biggest trends of the night: neutral colors. The red carpet was flooded with nudes, blushes, beiges, putties and off-whites. Heidi Klum and Angelina Jolie accented their looks with pops of color, while Sarah Hyland's dress was cinched with a black lace belt. With those exceptions, the stars who wore neutrals stuck to the restrained color palette and avoided flashy accessories. In fact, jewelry was really kept to a minimum. The shades may have been simple but the styles were varied. Some were bridal, others were minimal and many were ethereal. The gowns came in different textures, like lace, tulle and sparkles.
