Lena Dunham showed up Sunday night in form-fitting canary yellow — tattoos out — for the Golden Globes, one of Hollywood's biggest fashion fests.
Dunham, yanking at the top of her Zac Posen gown as she waited for her turn on the red carpet, joked about eating and the awards season as she practiced her diva poses. "I actually ate a thick patty of hamburger before I came, like a cave woman," she told E! Entertainment.
Kerry Washington, who is expecting her first child later this year, enlisted Balenciaga designer Alexander Wang to create a sleeveless bonded silk crepe gown in white with a flattering petal effect across the front.
"I also feel like I have the best date of the night, my little accessory here," she told E! dressed in a signature color for her Olivia Pope on "Scandal."
Lupita Nyong'o wowed in a sexy, caped red silk strapless gown from Ralph Lauren. Hal Rubenstein, editor-at-large of InStyle magazine, gushed about Nyong'o's dress and overall look.
"The color was extraordinary against her skin. There was something so regal about that dress. She didn't muck it up with tons of jewelry, and the boyish hair made it look even cooler," he said.The red carpet had a few "Gone With the Wind" moments, stylist Robert Verdi said, with full princess skirts that could have easily worn their recipients rather than the other way around. He counted Tina Fey's red carpet look and Sofia Vergara's Zac Posen among them. Vergara, with huge statement blue Lorraine Schwartz jewels around her neck, might agree.
"I feel like I'm carrying a tent," she told E! "I think I'm smuggling Colombians underneath this dress."
