Hollywood Fashion Brings Sexy Back to Red Carpet

Glitz and glamour ruled the red carpet at the 2007 Golden Globe Awards Monday night, as Penélope, Beyoncé, Angelina, J Lo, Salma and Reese stepped out and shined for all the world to see.

Power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt stole the show, as the UN Goodwill Ambassador radiated in a smoked gray St. John number.

“I’ve been working with them,” Angie said of the designer.

Gorgeous golden goddess Beyoncé sizzled in a dare to go there plunging Elli Saab frock, while Jennifer Lopez made a black Marchesa look red hot.

But it was definitely a white hot night, and InStyle’s Editor Hal Rubenstein rated his favorites on the red carpet for “Extra.”

“Ellen Pompeo looked the best she has ever looked,” he said of the “Grey’s Anatomy” star’s Versace frock.

Hal also fell under the spell of Cameron Diaz’s whimsical number: “I think Cameron Diaz looked the best ever.”

Salma Hayek, Jennifer Garner, Heidi Klum and Teri Hatcher also reined in white, but Sienna Miller had a bit of a sticky situation in her long, Marchesa frock.

“It’s collecting the red fluff from the red carpet,” she dished to “Extra.”

Shades of blue sparkled from Jennifer Hudson and Eva Longoria in navy and America Ferrera in an indigo Brian Reyes custom design.

Jessica Biel and Jennifer Love Hewitt sparkled in metallic, while Meryl Streep blushed in Carolina Herrera -- but it was her daughter, Louisa, that had her glowing.

“I brought the arm candy, baby,” the proud mom said of her daughter. "I know how to come to an event."

Drew Barrymore looked pretty in pink John Galliano, and Renée Zellweger glowed in green.

A sexy, single Reese Witherspoon showed off a slick straight hairdo while sporting a fitted strapless yellow number, and Hilary Swank pulled out her little black dress while Vanessa Williams let it all out!

“I did my own hair, this is a wig,” she confessed.

On this year’s Globes red carpet, you needed sunglasses with all that bling.

Kate Walsh dripped in diamonds, gushing, “I feel like I got engaged to Neil Lane.”

“Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip’s” Sara Paulson showcased her extravagant earrings by Lorraine Schwartz.

“Beyoncé, eat your heart out!” she joked.

And we can’t forget about the men in black that made us sweat.

John Stamos, McSteamy and McDreamy, who was decked out in Versace, left their scrubs at home, while Leonardo DiCaprio channeled old Hollywood in his Giorgio Armani suit.

“I had 20 minutes to get ready, put gel in the hair and jump out the door,” the double Globe nominee confessed.

But the ultimate fashion question still remains: who gets the “Extra” award for best dressed?

While Hollywood’s leading ladies shined in their designer frocks, a delicate dress outshined the rest.

Our Tanika Ray gave her vote to Angelina Jolie’s grey St. John gown, while Mark McGrath chose Ellen Pompeo’s Versace.

As for Hal Rubenstein’s pick, he too chose Ms. Ellen Pompeo.

“That is one hell of a smashing dress,” he said.
