At Sunday's Golden Globes, the trends were distinct. It was almost as if the celebrities compared notes -- or at least their stylists did. Here are the trends that were hard to miss:
Color choice: The color purple ruled the red carpet. Sandra Bullock, Fergie, Leona Lewis and Jane Krakowski all wore shades of purple. The other big color of the evening was blush pink/champagne. Nicole Kidman, Drew Barrymore, Christina Hendricks, Jennifer Garner, Chloe Sevigny and Emily Blunt all chose very light shades of pink.
Ruffles: The dresses of last night did not lacking girly details. Ruffles, bows and fabric flowers were aplenty. Ruffles in particular were absolutely everywhere. Chloe Sevigny was consumed in ruffles. Emily Blunt, Kate Hudson, Zoe Saldana and Diane Kruger also had major ruffles going on. Amy Poehler had a large flower on her shoulder, Drew Barrymore had a ruffly detail over her shoulder and near her face, and Kristen Bell had a large white bow that went across her body.
Mermaid style: The dresses seemed to be one of two styles -- flowing or mermaid. Watching these gorgeous women struggle to walk in their tight mermaid-style dresses was tough. Mariah Carey, Kyra Sedgwick, Emily Blunt, Vera Farmiga and Penelope Cruz all went with mermaid gowns, most of them black.
Ribbons: Perhaps the most important and noteworthy trend of the night was the ribbons that most attendees wore in support of the devastation in Haiti. Many celebrities commented while presenting or while accepting their awards that in the midst of the celebration, it is important to keep real-world issues in mind. Many not only spoke of it, but also gave generously, including Sandra Bullock who gave $1 million in support.
