We took a quick spin through the fashions earlier Sunday night with a live blog aimed at showing some of the arrivals before showtime. Seems we managed to capture at least a few of the favorites out there. TODAY style editor Bobbie Thomas was on point with her fashion-minded tweets throughout the red carpet, and we turn to her here for a critique of the top six looks of the night.
So check out Angelina Jolie, Evan Rachel Wood, Tilda Swinton, Paula Patton, Charlize Theron and Claire Danes. And at the bottom of this post, vote for your favorite ... or name someone else who you liked better in the comments.
Angelina Jolie: #HeadTurner -- she’s a master of simple elegance, the Atelier Versace was a flawless fit and her red lips were a perfect accent.
Evan Rachel Wood: #DontMissDetails -- always sleek and edgy, from sequins to feathers -- she pulls off a gorgeous textured "scaled" gown.
Tilda Swinton: #AvanteGarde -- a fashion favorite and refreshingly original (as always) in a powder blue Haider Ackermann ensemble.
Paula Patton: #Fresh -- the rising star was in sync with a bold new color, and popped on the red carpet in Monique Lhuillier.
Charlize Theron: #RiskTaker -- not afraid of a big fashionable bow, Theron was stunning in a softly structured Dior.
Helen Mirren: #Timeless -- the ever graceful talent Mirren sweeps the carpet in a midnight blue Badgley Mischka dress, proving style knows no age.
