Last night the 67th annual Golden Globes marked the beginning of the 2010 award show season. For me, the most anticipated portion of the evening is watching the actors and actresses arrive on the Red Carpet. I love to see how the various components of a Red Carpet look - the dress, shoes, clutch, jewelry, hair & make-up - are styled together for an overall effect. This year's Golden Globes boasted a variety styles for every taste from Old Hollywood glamour to architectural and avant-guard and everything in between. A palette of purples, blues, black and neutral hues were the colors of choice for the evening. Here are some of my favorite looks from the evening - which celebrities made your Golden Globes 2010 Best Dressed list?

Sandra Bullock's show-stopping purple jewel tone Bottega Veneta dress with a sheer skirt complemented her skin tone beautifully and her wavy hair pulled back and to the side looked fresh and not overly styled.

Classic black and white ensembles were strongly represented as well in a variety of interesting shapes and cuts. January Jones' black Lanvin frock paired with a chic black satin headband was a standout for the evening.

All-over beaded dresses in neutral shades of cream, grey and metallics were abundant on the Red Carpet as well. Jennifer Garner looked statuesque in her Atelier Versace stunner. The couture dress featured intricate diagonal grey beading through the torso that transitioned into vertical beading down the length of the dress ending in a train. The effect was simply gorgeous against Garner's fair complexion and dark brown hair!
