2009 Golden Globe Nominees
NOMINATION: Best Actress in a Motion Picture-Drama for Rachel Getting Married
RED-CARPET STYLE: The rising star opts for feminine, statement-making dresses, like this sea-foam green Atelier Versace gown (left) with wire rosettes.
OUR PICK: The corset top and full skirt on this Oscar de la Renta dress suits Hathaway's girly style, while the flower applique is a fun, statement-making detail.
NOMINATION: Best Actress in a Motion Picture-Drama for Changeling
RED-CARPET STYLE: The bad girl-turned-mother and philanthropist prefers classic designs with subtle feminine details like rouching and sweetheart necklines. And black (left in Atelier Versace) is most often her color of choice.
OUR PICK: This draped and beaded Marchesa dress is ultra sexy, but still sophisticated enough for the typically conservative dresser.
NOMINATION: Best Actress in a Motion Picture-Drama for Revolutionary Road and Best Actress in a Supporting Role-Motion Picture for The Reader
RED-CARPET STYLE: The dashing Brit opts for sexy styles that accentuate her petite-yet-curvy figure, from designers like Gucci (left) and Herve Leger. Her color palette veers toward neutrals.
OUR PICK: This metallic Giorgio Armani is elegant and modern, and the tailored top and flowing skirt will accentuate Winslet's silhouette perfectly.
NOMINATION: Best Actress in a Motion Picture-Drama for Doubt and Best Actress in a Motion Picture-Comedy/Musical for Mamma Mia!
RED-CARPET STYLE: The veteran actress loves no-brainer classics from Prada and Donna Karan that have lots of style and no pretension. As she has said, "Once I went and got a couple of things [for awards shows] at Saks, in the basement, on sale."
OUR PICK: This Carolina Herrera gown was made for an award-winning moment. The understated black and white color combination is chic, while the cut is elegant and age appropriate.
NOMINATION: Best Actress in a Supporting Role-Motion Picture for Vicky Cristina Barcelona
RED-CARPET STYLE: While she used to predominantly be a Ralph Lauren girl, Cruz has diversified her wardrobe to include sophisticated looks by Chanel (left), Dior and Marchesa.
OUR PICK: This Roberto Cavalli dress has a dramatic cascading skirt that will appeal to Cruz's Spanish roots and an edgy ombre bodice that will perfectly sculpt her petite physique.
NOMINATION: Best Actress in a Supporting Role-Motion Picture for Doubt
RED-CARPET STYLE: Adams is a fan of Old-Hollywood style and ladylike looks by American designers including Proenza Schouler (left), Narciso Rodriguez and Oscar de la Renta.
OUR PICK: This Elie Saab dress is a sexier, more risque choice for Adams-who would be a head-turner in the soft green color and body-skimming mermaid cut.
NOMINATION: Best Actress in a Television Series-Comedy/Musical for 30 Rock
RED-CARPET STYLE: Though the comedienne feels most comfortable in conservative cuts and black dresses, earlier this year the 30 Rock star stepped out in a metallic gray Tory Burch dress, as well as this deep-purple David Meister gown (left).
OUR PICK: This Zac Posen gown has enough flare to be a standout, but falls in line with Fey's preference for safe and sophisticated looks.
NOMINATION: Best Actress in a Television Series-Comedy for Ugly Betty
RED-CARPET STYLE: Ferrera shines in waist-cinching, vintage-inspired looks, like this black vintage Werle dress (left). The actress also looks to Oscar de la Renta and Diane Von Furstenberg for ladylike red-carpet ensembles.
OUR PICK: This draped Monique Lhuillier wraps at the waist, while the chiffon train gives the dress Old-Hollywood appeal.
NOMINATION: Best Actress in a Television Series-Comedy for The Starter Wife
RED-CARPET STYLE: The red-haired star has versatility when it comes to fashion. She shows off her feminine side in dresses like this layered Monique Lhuillier (left) and her sleeker, more classic side in gowns by Ralph Lauren.
OUR PICK: This asymmetrical, draped Versace gown will look both feminine and elegant on Messing. The purple hue also suits her fair skin and vibrant hair color.
NOMINATION: Best Actress in a Television Series-Comedy for Samantha Who?
RED-CARPET STYLE: The TV star loves wearing shades of blue that bring out her piercing eyes. Whether it's a bold-cobalt cocktail dress or a pale sky-hued gown (left), Applegate opts for designs with intricate details like origami folds and metallic threading.
OUR PICK: It may not be blue, but this dusty-pink Valentino gown will perfectly complement the actress's eye color and skin-tone. The draping and gathers will appeal to Applegate's affection for special construction and details.
NOMINATION: Best Actress in a Television Series-Comedy for Weeds
RED-CARPET STYLE: Though she's known for wearing clean lines, Parker jazzes up her style with bright colors, like the turquoise Roberto Cavalli (left) she wore to the Emmys. She also favors the sexy designs of Dolce & Gabbana.
OUR PICK: The mermaid silhouette on this Badgley Mischka will perfectly frame Parker's lithe figure, while the bright blue color will pop against her porcelain skin.
NOMINATION: Best Actress in a Television Series-Drama for The Closer
RED-CARPET STYLE: The actress favors curve-hugging dresses with Old-Hollywood glitz, like this white L'Wren Scott dress (left) embroidered with diamonds.
OUR PICK: This Donna Karan gown is a softer interpretation of Sedgwick's sexy style. The crystal embellishment add sparkle to the neutral number.
NOMINATION: Best Actress in a Television Series-Drama for Law & Order: SVU
RED-CARPET STYLE: The Golden Globe winner tends to play it safe with classic, figure-flattering silhouettes, but takes risks with bright colors-like this canary-yellow Carolina Herrera dress (left)-and bold prints.
OUR PICK: The simple floor-grazing silhouette and graphic metallic fabric of this Isaac Mizrahi dress, is the perfect combination for Hargitay.
