Awards season officially kicked off with a bang as Hollywood’s biggest and brightest graced the red carpet in beautiful designer gowns and jewelry for the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards. The cloudy, damp weather couldn’t eclipse all the brilliant glitz and glamour showcased tonight. While some stars displayed lots of skin and cleavage, others opted for timeless, strapless gowns with modern twists. But, unfortunately, amongst the bevy of fashionable hits, there were also several misses. Here is our breakdown of the best and worst dressed at the Golden Globes.

Best Dressed

Rosamund Pike

Her "Gone Girl" character may have been called Amazing Amy, but it was all about ahh-mazing Rosamund on the Golden Globes red carpet. The British beauty stunned in this frothy and revealing Vera Wang gown—just five weeks after giving birth to her second son! The Best Actress nominee flaunted major skin with sexy side and back cutouts, but managed to keep the look classy and elegant.

Lorde

Lorde isn’t often applauded for her red carpet statements, but the “Yellow Flicker Beat” singer brought tons of edge and an unexpected bit of sex appeal to the Golden Globes. The 18-year-old wore her signature black, but took it to the next level with a sleek Narciso Rodriguez pantsuit and crop top paired with a slick ponytail and statement necklace. Rock star chic!

Allison Williams

There had to be at least one red-hot look tonight, and the “Girls” star wins the honor with this show-stopping Armani Privé design. The strapless, tiered gown was breathtaking with intricate beading from top to bottom. The brunette actress literally sparkled and shined as she glided down the red carpet.

Jennifer Lopez

We can always count on J. Lo to slay on the red carpet, but she almost outdid herself this evening. The 45-year-old superstar was smoking hot in this Zuhair Murad dress with a long cape, thigh-high slit, and plunging neckline. And, of course, the entire look wouldn't be complete without that signature bronze glow. One word: Yassss!

Emma Stone

Stone, like Lorde, also chose to skip a traditional gown at the Golden Globes. The “Birdman” nominee was chic and sleek in a Lanvin jumpsuit with an embellished bodice and oversized, statement bow at the waist. Perfection is the only way to sum this one up. The elegant redhead is the master of effortless and high fashion red carpet style.

Kate Hudson

Wow. That was the immediate reaction when Hudson stepped onto the red carpet. The gorgeous actress was flawless in a sexy, skintight Versace number with cutouts, diamonds, caging detail, and cleavage. This dress hugged her body in all the right places. Ladies, take notes.

Lupita Nyong'o

Nyong'o was a breath of fresh air in this eye-catching and imaginative Giambattista Valli Couture dress. The floral bodice was amazing, but it was the cascading hues of gold and purple on the skirt that really made this look pop. The Oscar winner is always willing to take risks with bold colors and designs, and that’s exactly why she continues to reign as fashion's It-Girl. She hits it out of the ballpark. Every. Single. Time.

Worst Dressed

Lana Del Rey

Oh, Lana, why? The “Ultraviolence” songstress has a gorgeous figure, but this frumpy dress hid her fabulous curves. With an unflattering fit, pleating, and color, this outfit was simply outdated—and not in the cool, vintage way. At least, her voluminous hair and sultry makeup made up for her unfortunate fashion faux pas.

Claire Danes

The “Homeland” star is usually a winner on the red carpet, but every once in awhile you have to take a loss. This Valentino gown is too patterned, too casual, and too drab for any event, especially the Golden Globes. Come on, Claire, you can do so much better.

Melissa McCarthy

Melissa McCarthy, we love you. You are a phenomenal actress and comedienne. But, no. Just, no

Lena Dunham

Lena Dunham’s Zac Posen gown would have had so much potential if only it was tailored properly. The dress just hangs on her, which ultimately gives a sloppy appearance and does nothing for her figure. Alas, her quest for a dress that actually fits continues…
