A rainbow of color lit up the red carpet, but it was the bold emerald gowns that had everyone seeing green, such as Catherine Zeta Jones' tiered ball gown by Monique lhullier and Angelina Jolie's shimmering dress by Versace. Turns out, Angelina didn't use a stylist.
Lawrence Zarian, fashion expert for the TV Guide Network told INSIDE EDITION, "Angie decided to do it on her own. It was reminiscent of a 1980's beaded gown."
Angie also took a do-it-yourself approach to her makeup, touching up her lip gloss during the show.
And then there were the blushing beauties, who popped up in everything from rose and peach, to hot pink and fire engine red.
Zarian said, "Sophia Vergara knocked it out of the park! The girl's got sisters. She brought the sisters out to play at the Golden Globes!"
The women of Mad Men were also red hot, though January Jones is getting mixed reviews for her daring cutout dress by Versace.
"January Jones tends to push it," said Zarian.
And not everyone loved Natalie Portman's strapless gown by Victor and Rolf, which featured a red aplique rose.
Zarian remarked, "If you would just prune that dress, and get rid of the rose, I think Natalie would have looked lovely."
Scarlett Johansson, who wore Elie Saab, led another trend of the night, lacy vintage-inspired dresses.
Sandra Bullock said she chose her romantic dress by Jenny Packham because it was so comfortable. She wore her hair pin straight with straight bangs.
Another trend was modest, long-sleeved gowns. But when the stars turned around, wow! Not so modest, showing a lot of back.
The leading ladies themselves had a fashion favorite: Olivia Wilde, from TV's House.
Caley Cuoco told INSIDE EDITION, "Olivia Wilde's dress, she's wearing Marchesa. It's so beautiful."
As for the Big Bang Theory's Caley Cuoco, she was avoiding red carpet stumbles at all costs.
Norville said, "I think I saw a pair of flip flops."
Cuoco said, "She's holding them, yes! My publicist. I had a broken leg. I broke my leg four months ago and this is my first night in heels. I have my sandles just in case."
Carrie Underwood chose a dress with a stunning train. She told INSIDE EDITION, "This is Badgley Mischka. I'm paranoid about the train back there. I had two feet cut off the back because it was out of control."
INSIDE EDITION's own Deborah Norville wore this red one-shoulder gown by David Meister, chosen by INSIDE EDITION viewers. Her diamond cuff was by Dena Kemp, and earrings by Yael. But her best accessory was her 13-year-old daughter, Michaela, who was thrilled by her first carpet experience on this golden night.
