Sarah Hyland looked golden at the Globes in January 2011 when she arrived to celebrate her show “Modern Family” and its nod for best musical or comedy series. While the show didn’t win, Sarah’s glitzy strapless dress definitely did.
Emma Stone, who was nominated for her work in “Easy A” in 2011, walked the red carpet sporting bleached blonde hair and wearing a peach short-sleeved dress by Calvin Klein that screamed California summer.
Julianne Moore went for a bold look in this bright pink one-shouldered frock by Lanvin. Unfortunately her gown got wrinkled, taking away from what could have been a “wow” moment.
Nicole Kidman went with a slinky pale yellow, one-shouldered dress at the 2011 Golden Globes, where she was nominated for her performance in “Rabbit Hole.”
Amber Riley looked like a million dollars the night her show “Glee” took home top honors for best musical or comedy series. The singer-actress strutted her stuff in an Oliver Tolentino gown that featured a black belt and endless sequins.
Catherine Zeta-Jones picked a strapless emerald green textured organza gown by Monique Lhuillier for the big night in Beverly Hills. The green shade was bold, but she pulled it off effortlessly.
Carrie Underwood looked brilliant in a shimmery neutral-hued gown from Badgley Mischka that matched perfectly with her blonde hair and glowing skin.
Gabourey Sidibe is never one to shy away from a bold look and her dress at the 68th Annual Golden Globes was no exception. The “Precious” actress picked a purple printed maxi dress with butterfly details and drop earrings to match.
Anne Hathaway went for all-out glitz in 2011 when she was nominated for her work in “Love & Other Drugs.” Anne wore an elegant amber-colored Armani Privé gown embellished with paillettes and Swarovski crystals.

Jennifer Lawrence celebrated her Golden Globe nomination for her breakout role in “Winter’s Bone” in a ruffled floor-length Louis Vuitton gown.

“Modern Family” star Julie Bowen posed for photos on the 2011 Golden Globes red carpet in a taupe strapless gown with ruffles around the shoulder and hemline.
Sofia Vergara, who was nominated for her work on “Modern Family” that night, showed off her curves in a watermelon-colored gown that accentuated her figure with ruffles along the neckline and a black belt cinching her waist.
Sandra Bullock — who presented at the show, which was held on Jan. 16, 2011 — wore an embellished blush-hued Jenny Packham gown. The look would have felt far more ethereal had Sandy not had such heavy bangs at the time.
“Mad Men” star January Jones went for a super-sexy look in 2011. The actress arrived at the Golden Globes in a red-hot Versace fringe-embellished gown and pulled it off effortlessly with her Old Hollywood hairstyle and matching red lip.
Olivia Wilde‘s sparkly Marchesa gown was no doubt beautiful, but the huge skirt seemed a bit showy for the actress, who was only a presenter at the Globes that year.
Jennifer Love Hewitt went for a dramatic look in 2011 when she was nominated for her work in “The Client List.” The former teen actress picked a strapless ice blue Romona Keveza gown with an architectural neckline and pearl-accented waistline.
Vanessa Williams dazzled at the 2011 Globes in a pale pink one-shouldered sequined gown accessorized with chandelier earrings.
Christina Aguilera epitomized Old Hollywood glam in a strapless sheer dress featuring a black lace overlay. The dress had elegance woven throughout with flower flourishes and sequins.
Nominee Tina Fey wore a dark blue satin gown with ruffled sleeves at the 2011 Golden Globes. The comedy writer and actress wove the blue into her jewels as well but missed the mark with her red nail polish, which seemed out of place.
“The King’s Speech” star Helena Bonham Carter was as unique as ever back in January 2011. The actress wore sunglasses and mismatched shoes with her printed dress that had some extra body thanks to a generous amount of tulle on the skirt.
Mila Kunis was another star who favored a bold emerald color back in 2011. The “Black Swan” actress, who was nominated for her work in the ballet-centric film, dressed in a one-shouldered dress by Vera Wang. The look was a win, save for her updo, which felt too severe.
Megan Fox‘s Armani Privé gown was a total hit. The 2011 Globes presenter looked stunning in the pink dress with a thigh-high slit.
Presenter Eva Longoria was another star who went for a dramatic Old Hollywood-inspired look. Her black gown featured a trumpet skirt and cap sleeves.

Heidi Klum went for a bold, fun look at the 68th Annual Golden Globes. The model and TV host wore a halter-style loose dress with burnt red, pink and blush colors throughout.
“Glee” singer-actress Naya Rivera looked like a star in a Douglas Hannant gown and her hair pulled simply to the side.

Mandy Moore looked like a princess in a cobalt blue Monique Lhuillier dress. The singer-actress’s mermaid-style gown, which featured lots of tulle flourishes, paired well with those surprising hoop earrings, making the look more modern.
Nominated for her role in “Blue Valentine,” Michelle Williams arrived in a flower child look for the big night. Michelle’s dress, designed by Valentino, featured daisy embroidery and straps that also reflected the floral theme.
Kaley Cuoco picked out a tiered dress with ruffles by Catherine Kidd when she presented at the Globes, which were hosted by Ricky Gervais in 2011. Kaley’s look exuded glam between that diamond necklace, her pulled-back hair and the sweet champagne color.
