The Hollywood Foreign Press chose well this year.

Leonardo di Caprio finally got a Best Actor award, Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams won for their performances in American Hustle, and Breaking Bad was recognized for its television genius.

The actual Golden Globes 2014 award show didn’t go off quite as well. Despite Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s hilarious hosting, terribly botched, painful acceptance speeches and awkwardly long walks to the microphone slowed the pace to a crawl. Jennifer Lawrence spoke without a shred of elegance. The lovely Jacqueline Bisset appeared to be either drunk or stoned.

Thus, we’ll turn now to the fun part of the night—red carpet fashion.

Here is DOWNTOWN’s definitive list of the best dressed gals of the evening.

Kate Mara went va-va-voom in a silver J.Mendel dress. She looked fresh, seductive, and almost other-worldly thanks to her shocking blonde hair.

Jessica Chastain updated old Hollywood style in a black Givenchy dress. It was flawless, classic, elegant, but far from minimal.

Margot Robbie looked hot and modern in a cream Gucci dress. She also got extra points because she’s Leo’s latest leading lady.

12 Years a Slave‘s Lupita Nyongo’o rocked her first major red carpet appearance. Her red Ralph Lauren design is slightly reminiscent of the white Tom Ford number Gwyneth Paltro wore to the 2012 Oscars, but different enough to make her own stunning statement.

Caitlin Fitzgerald wore a bright blue Emilia Wickstead. It’s a little Betty Draper, a little Jane Jetson, but somehow it’s perfect for right now.

Amy Adams channeled her American Hustle character and wore a gorgeous red Valentino with a ’70s vibe. Like her, it exuded easy, retro elegance.

Cate Blanchett dazzled in Armani Prive, a favorite of the star, and looked timeless. Black lace and diamonds are always a good choice.

Naomi Watts was statuesque in a body-skimming, shimmering Tom Ford dress. Sleek perfection.

Emma Watson took an original approach to Golden Globes dressing and it paid off. Her Christian Dior pant and dress combo proved she’s all grown up.

Amber Heard showed a lot of silky skin to match her silk Versace number. Tastefully sexy.

Zoe Saldana wore a funky girly dress by Prabal Gurung. She kept the rest of her look minimal and let the dress do the talking.
