2012 Golden Globes: Best Dressed

Each year, I can't wait for award season to roll around. I love looking for the new dresses that will depict fashion for the upcoming year. Sometimes there are classic styles that we expect each year. Other times we see some truly original looking gowns. The 2012 Golden Globes were no different this year. As the official start to award season, celebrities donned gorgeous designer gowns to the lavish affair. Below you will find a compilation of my favorite, best dressed celebrities from the night.
