As the reigning queen of quirky girl twee, it's easy for Zooey Deschanel to succumb to cutesy, vintage overload, but her Oscar de la Renta outfit was one hundred percent chic. The mix of textures in a muted color palette makes all the sparkles and tulle look surprisingly sophisticated with a hint of retro girliness befitting of the "New Girl" actress.
Back To Black
The red carpet was filled with super bold brights and very muted nudes, but a handful of starlets decided to go back to basics with form-fitting, floor-length gowns in black. Cate Blanchett stunned in a backless, full-lace Armani number, Jessica Chastain showed off her figure in a Givenchy gown, co-host Amy Poehler looked chic in a Stella McCartney dress with cutouts, while Emma Roberts filled out a trumpet Lanvin gown.
Best Attempt at Layering with a Gown
One of the biggest surprises during the red carpet arrivals? Finding out that Emma Watson was wearing a pair of pants under her orange Dior dress. Pants. We never thought business in the front and (business) party in the back would work on paper, but Watson proved us wrong and pulled it off flawlessly.
Worst Attempt at Layering with a Gown
Julia Roberts should have left the layering to Emma Watson. We can applaud her for trying something outside the box, but the crisp white button up (down) under her black dress Dolce and Gabbana just seemed out of place.
Best Haircut Debut
It seems like only yesterday when we were seeing Shoshanna Zosia Mamet's long, center parted, ombre hair with tousled waves ... because it was. When the "Girls" actress hit the red carpet with this new cut, we were pleasantly surprised with her fun, fresh look for the new year.
