2014 was the year of simple elegance at the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards. And while some of Hollywood's most powerful fashionistas nailed the look, others simply did not.

Among the red carpet's flops this year:

Sandra Bullock in Prabal Gurung
Sandra is always Stunning, but sadly this dress is not. Simply put, it's just boring. The cut, the fabric, the colors -- despite the bold color blocking, this dress fails to make any kind of statement. Even her flawless tresses and killer shoes can't save it.

Lena Dunham in Zac Posen
Lena's vibrant yellow mermaid gown is too small. This could be a brilliant look on her, but it's cutting her off up top, it's stretched too tight across the hips -- all this screams "insecure," and she has no reason to be.

Julia Roberts in Dolce & Gabbana
This dress is just odd. It's clear that the idea was to be modern and edgy, but instead it looks as if she suddenly remembered midway through a business meeting that she had somewhere to be, and in her haste to get ready, she forgot to take off part of her power suit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On the other end of the spectrum were the clear winners:

Jessica Chastain in Givenchy
Nothing looks more amazing with red hair than a classic black strapless bombshell gown, and Jessica pulls it off flawlessly, accompanying it with another timeless classic: diamonds.

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior
There are literally no words for how amazing the Best Supporting Actress winner looked on her big night. It's hard to miss with Dior, especially when you're as beautiful as Jennifer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NBCUniversal

Tina Fey in Carolina Herrera
Tina almost never misses in the fashion department; this lady us pure class, and it's always reflected in her choice of clothing. She topped even herself as she rocked not one, but three gorgeous Carolina Herrera gowns in her second turn at co-hosting the Globes. All three were perfect definitions of simple elegance paired with a bold, yet tasteful statement.

The baby bump award goes to Kerry Washington in Balenciaga.
She looks both elegant and comfortable, which is a must for any mom-to-be, and the flyaway cut of the bodice shows off her growing belly beautifully. Among other soon-to-be mommas, Olivia Wilde looked stunning in a shimmery emerald Gucci Premiere frock, while Drew Barrymore makes * too* bold a statement in an over-embellished Monique Lhuillier.

Finally, this year's award for best dressed man goes to Modern Family's Rico Rodriguez.
Let's face it, most tuxedos look pretty much the same, but with his black and white plaid necktie, he managed to stand out without going kooky.
