It's the most wonderful time of the year...

That's right people... it's award season! 

And it got kick started last night with the 69th Annual Golden Globes! 

Admittedly, being a sunday night and E! Entertainment only being on our downstairs TV, I did have to wait until this morning until I saw Red Carpet gowns and sparkle, but some of the ladies certainly made it worth the wait.

So forget the awards for Best Actor and Best Mini-series.. the only award that matters is, of course.. BEST DRESSED!

So here's a little run down of my top 5 favourite looks from last night.. but for me, it's not just about the dresses- the hair and makeup have to be top too! 

So the nominees are....

Emma Stone, star of one of my favourite films of 2011- The Help, chose Lanvin for the event. 

The berry colour just compliments her light skintone beautifully as she embraces it with a plunging neckline. LOVE <3 

After just having wrote about her becoming the new face of Dior this year, Mila Kunis stepped onto the Red Carpet in this gorgeous black Grecian gown.

She looks so elegant... quickly becoming one of my style icons! 

Followed by another one of Dior's ladies, Charlize Theron also chose to wear the french brand to this year's awards.

She was definitely on trend as there appeared to be a love of nude and blush colours from Angelina to Heidi Klum. But Charlize stood out for me in this ballroom ballerina design. 

Her makeup is so natural (not too dark around the eyes) which gives a pureness to her overall look.

Note how these 3 ladies so far have sported the feminine side bun with loose sweeping fringe!! It's just such an effortlessly elegant look which really suits for an awards ceremony.  

3's a trend again so guess how i'll be wearing me hair this weekend?! 

A close 2nd in my countdown came..

Reese Witherspoon!

I don't know why i was so shocked to see her looking so good! Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love her as an actress but lately she's gone off my radar a little and I forgot what a siren she really is! 

Reese opted for this flattering, bold mermaid style Zac Posen dress with nails to match. But i honestly think it's the hair that swung it for me! She looks so relaxed and .... happy! 

And i guess when someone feels happy on the inside it really shows on the outside. 

And the winner is..... 

who else! 

It's Zooey!

She has literally gone from being the annoying girl who wouldn't love Joseph Gordon-Levitt to my 2012 style crush, a lady after my own heart who can do no wrong in the style stakes! 

Zooey Deschanel wore Prada, which sparkled on top and flowed beautifully around her as she floated up the Red Carpet. 

(Look at me comparing her to an angel.. it must be love!)

And did you see her nails for the occasion?? 

Just before Zooey left for the event, she tweeted a picture of her nails.. 

"I am wearing a gown but my nails are wearing tuxedos" 

Amaze <3

I think it may have been the nails that won Zooey's place in my 'total awards look' heart and I therefore proclaim her this year's BEST DRESSED!

Here's your award Zooey! 

So what do you think? Did the right person deserve to win or have I overlooked anyone from last night?

Who stood out on the Red Carpet for you?

And who may have won worst dressed? 

Here's a few of the stars that just didn't get it right for me.. but that's just my opinion! 

All in all however I think it was another great night for Hollywood glamour, can't wait to see what's in store in the weeks so come!
