Awards season officially concluded Sunday night, but the red carpet fashion — from the Golden Globes to the Oscars — is still a hot topic.

Charlize Theron set the style bar incredibly high when she arrived at the Golden Globes in a pale pink Dior Couture gown, which featured a plunging neckline and thigh-high slit. She accessorized with a dazzling platinum and diamond Cartier Collection headband from 1920.

Emily Blunt took a major risk at the SAG Awards in a jade one-shoulder Oscar de la Renta chiffon design. The bold color was a huge hit (90 percent of you loved it), and the actress stood out in a sea of nude beaded looks.

Never one to play it safe with her sartorial choices, Rihanna rocked one of her most daring looks ever at the Grammys. "This is a collaboration between Mr. Armani and myself," the singer said of the super sexy black number. "I wanted something a little bit like Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface."

And at the Super Bowl of celebrity fashion, the award for the most show-stopping gown went to George Clooney's leading lady, Stacy Keibler, who wowed in a metallic gold strapless Marchesa gown with a gathered rose detail on the hip.
