A-list stars paint Tinseltown red
RED ruled the Golden Globes red carpet on Sunday as Hollywood's A-list stars bared their shoulders in eye-popping gowns for the first major awards show of the season.
A sprinkler malfunction almost rained on the fashion parade at the Beverly Hilton, but Tinseltown's top film and television actors successfully strutted their stuff after workers scrambled to mop up the mess.
American Hustle star and best musical/comedy actress winner Amy Adams chose a two-tone burgundy-red Valentino halter dress with the same only-if-you-dare plunging neckline seen in the 1970s-era crime caper.
The key to pulling off the wide V neck?
"Good posture," Adams quipped to E! television's Ryan Seacrest.
Lupita Nyong'o, a best supporting actress nominee for her searing turn in 12 Years A Slave, stunned in a red Ralph Lauren column dress with matching cape, all off the shoulder.
Host Tina Fey wore several gowns throughout the night, but all of them had at least a hint of red. On the red carpet, she donned a strapless black Carolina Herrera ball gown with a long train, sprinkled with red flowers.
During the broadcast, she wore a sleeveless burgundy dress with a jewelled V-neckline, and another strapless frock in fire-engine red.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, a nominee for her work in romantic comedy Enough Said, also wore bright red - a curve-hugging Narciso Rodriguez number.
Pop starlet Taylor Swift also wore Herrera: a strapless gown with a black bodice and a flowing red skirt.
Other bright colours were seen - Girls star Lena Dunham sported a strapless canary-yellow Zac Posen frock with a sweetheart neckline. And best supporting actress winner Jennifer Lawrence of American Hustle again wore Dior - this time, a tiered gauzy white gown with two black bands.
Hollywood's A-list men did not disappoint: Wolf Of Wall Street star Leonardo DiCaprio - winner for best actor in a comedy - wore an Armani tuxedo, while Hustle star Bradley Cooper sported Tom Ford.
