Kate Winslet is ravishing with her classic Hollywood look in a satin, floor-length gown tied up neatly with a bow. The structured bodice and understated lines were true to her typical, sophisticated style that manages to be both stunning and subtle. The Reader star went two-for-two with Golden Globe wins.

We heart Drew with all our might — her upcoming roller-derby movie only bolsters our case — but she got all pageant-queen on us with this powder-blue number that's better left in the budoir, and a matching bed-head bob to boot.

Eva Longoria knows how to maximize every centimeter of her petite body, and the Globes were no exception. The Desperate housewife could set Wisteria lane on fire with her va-va-voom expanse of a red, strapless dress with scalloped detailing.

We dig a good Nehru jacket now and then, but Tony Shalhoub's black-tie take on the vintage look was a miss. With his rugged, Syriana-style beard and pensive pose, a dapper suit might have suited the occasion better.

The lovely Blake Lively anchors one of the most fashion-forward, youth-obsessed shows on TV. But that kind of pressure is no excuse for an ill-fitting gown better suited for an older woman. Not even your enviable hair will save you this time, B.

Hit

Si, si, si! Eva Mendes manages to pull off the year's regrettable hip-bow trend in a white-hot dress that leaves just enough up to the imagination. Her turquoise collar adds a lively punch of color, while that shoulder-baring coif is a sassy touch.

Our hearts broke a little at the Emmys when Hayden Panettiere arrived in a dowdy, dark-blue gown that seemed ripped from a J. Crew catalogue. Heroes' resident cheerleader tried to sex it up a tad at the Globes, but the fit was all wrong across the bodice, where funky applique made matters worse.

Most Improved

Despite his recent battles (sex rehab, separation from his wife) David seemed to be in fine form tonight. He looked and acted healthy, which, based on our expectations, was a huge (and welcome) surprise.

We rely on you, Heidi, to steer us in the direction of cutting-edge fashion, so we don't blame you for stepping over the line now and then. But paired with your one-buttoned hubby, Seal, the puffy skirt-flower combination is a step too far.

Mary-Louise Parker can really do no wrong. The Weeds star rocks one of her signature, colbalt body-huggers, and lets her sumptuous, mahogany locks go free.

How can the most adorable actress on The Office go so wrong on the red carpet? Jenna Fischer had a great thing going with her oh-so-sexy, empire-waist gown, but the frumpy pattern undid all the elegance.

Hit

Madeline Zima's on-screen alter-ego on Californication is many things, but subtle is not one of them. Off-screen, however, the young actress had the right idea with a soft, Grecian look in a color that kept it fresh.

Miss

J.Lo interpreted the award show a little too literally. Her blinding gold dress made the most of her famously sexy curves, but it's unfair to expect everyone to bring sunglasses to the red carpet.

Awesomely Terrible

We know Mick doesn't look great, but if he had played it straight, we all would have been terribly disappointed. Kudos to him for having the balls to stand out, and for making a big comeback.

Maggie Gyllenhaal may have a dramatic face that can handle the occasional avant-garde frock. But Dark Knight's romantic figurehead should have eschewed this wild print for...almost anything.

Effortlessly sexy, elegantly suave: Tom Cruise did it again. The consummate stylisto (that's a fashion-plate for guys) updated a classic look with a little satin here, a mega-watt smile there.

Miss

We love loose, sexy fabrics just as much as the next red-carpet dweller. But a funny thing happened to Rachel Griffiths on her way to the Globes: She lost her slender body somewhere in that Romaneque toga dress.

Miss

Renee Zellweger pains us in this Dallas-style get-up from head to toe. It's OK to push the fashion envelope — it's not OK to rip it to shreds, toss it in the fire and then parade around for the cameras of every major wire service in the world.

Sending out an S.O.S.! Being a world-famous hunk of a rock star doesn't mean you can bring poor taste to the red carpet. Sting presented not only the award for best original song, but also a shapeless, body-blocking jacket and a beard that was two days past sexy.
