The Golden Globes were huge for Hollywood’s leading women this year. Whether you’re a fan of HBO’s Girls, Kathryn Bigelow’s macabre Zero Dark Thirty, comedians Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, or even Jodie Foster’s awkward speech, it was a stellar night all around.

Favourite Red Carpet Moment: Tabu

Tabu-2Tabu Ang Lee

Okay, we still get excited when we spot a South Asian person on the red carpet. This year, Indian actress Tabu joined Life of Pi director Ang Lee and actor Suraj Sharma on the red carpet, wearing a sari by Abu Jani Sandeep Kosla. I’m not a huge fan of the mirror and gotta work done by Jani-Kosla, but Tabu looked stunning and stood out during the awards show. On a related note, Aishwarya Rai also wore an Abu Jani Sandeep Kosla sari at the Cannes Film Festival in 2012.

Our Favourite Gowns

Minimalism, soft colours and bold shades of red were key trends at this year’s Golden Globes. Stars like Anne Hathaway, Archie Panjabi and Marion Cotillard opted for little or barely there earrings, single tone gowns, and sleek, simple hair and makeup.

Some of our favourite looks from the evening include Kerri Washington, star of our most favourite show on network television right now, Scandal. Kerri wore a beautiful sheer and beaded Miu Miu gown, Prada heels and jewelry from Fred Leighton and Chopard. We also loved Julianne Moore in a custom Tom Ford gown, Lucy Liu in a fun, floral gown by Carolina Herrera, and Newsroom’s Olivia Mun in a turquoise beaded column gown by Armani. Our favourite women in red were¬†Marion Cotillard in Dior Haute Couture, and Naomi Watts, who was stunning in an oxblood red gown from Zac Posen. An honourable mention goes to Taylor Swift who looked all grown up and terribly chic in a dress from Donna Karan Atelier, and Adele who appeared in a sombre black gown by Burberry, just weeks after having a baby.
