While it's not the most celebrated of the award shows, The Golden Globes are usually my absolute favorite to watch, and The 68th Annual Golden Globes were nothing short of entertaining, to say the least. Ricky Gervais is an amazing host and even though he pokes fun at almost everyone, they all seem to know that he's joking when they get a chance, jab him right back. Blame it on the booze, the amazing food, the intimate table seating and the fact that the celebs get to share a table with their cast & crew mates, that makes for a more relaxing & easy going experience for everyone, not to mention the timely fashion in which they finish ... but let's get to what we really watch award shows for, shall we: TO SEE WHAT THEY'RE WEARING of course!

As a sea of floor-length gowns & tight updos shimmied across the red carpet at the Beverly Hilton in sunny LA on Sunday, it was quite apparent that the "stars" pulled out all the stops which made for quite a glamorous shindig. Any bit of leg I did see was only a flash from a high slit rather than a mini dress. So, to "get on with the show" so to speak below are the stand-out fashion trends of The 68th Annual Golden Globes.

The men definitely dressed to impress for the event as well. Most were wearing a classic black tuxedo with a textured bow tie but my favorites are the few who decided not to play it safe: Robert Downey, Jr. in a gray Prada suit with a satiny red tie, Christian Bale opted for black on black on black with satiny lapels & of course, Johnny Depp, who never plays by the rules, in a casual tuxedo sans any tie at all.

And let's not forget the Accessories!

Fabulous drop earrings as well as low and high pony tails seemed to be a commonality, as did eyeglasses {see below: not shown: Annette Bening, Robert Downey, Jr., Barry Levinson, & Paul Giamatti} and as always, the ladies had gorgeously ornate little clutches to carry their essentials in.

And last but not least, my personal picks.

My hands-down favorite of the night Best goes to {drumroll please} ... Emma Stone

Many may disagree with me on this one, but I absolutely LOVED, no -- DIED FOR -- Emma Stone's bright peach yet simple gown by Calvin Klein Collection with an open back. Maybe on someone else it wouldn't have worked, but it was perfection with Emma's new blonde locks.

And coming in a close second & third are Eva Longoria & Olivia Wilde.

And for my Worst picks ... the dresses I liked least go to:

Michelle Williams, Jennifer Lopez, & Christina Aguilera.

I wish I could say there were no "worsts" -- and obviously Michelle Williams wins worst hands down {what was she thinking? and/or she should fire her stylist!} JLo looked beautiful, stunning really, but I think that dress would have been really pretty in a darker color ... and Christina, well, *sigh* it's not really a horrible dress but ... well, let's just say that if someone else wore it, it would have more of a "classy" than "trashy" look.
