Dressing up: Golden Globes Bridal Inspiration

Award season has started and my favourite part of the whole sha-bang are the gorgeous gowns. Especially as there is always a whole host of bridal inspiration on the red carpet,  and the 69th Annual Golden Globes Awards was no exception. Here are my top 8 picks - Jessica Biel's dress is my number one, wearing Ellie Saab who is one of my favourite designers. Some may think the high neck and long sleeves look a bit conservative but I love that it is understated, yet the embellished lace gives it that star quality.

Coming close behind in the fave stakes is Sarah Hyland (of Modern Family fame), dressed in Dolce Gabbana, the contrast black jewelled belt makes her look effortlessly chic but with an edge.

Kate Beckinsale in Roberto Cavalli GoldenGlobes2012KateBeckinsale

I also have to highlight Charlize Theron's glittery headband, it is so pretty and would work perfectly as a bridal headpiece, and Kate Beckinsale's statement earrings. Although obviously not worn together! What do you think about this year's Golden Globe fashion and whose style stood out for you?
