Harper Bazaar's Derek Blasberg tweeted, I think Angelina Jolie just single handedly made it cool to match your bag and your lipstick to your dress again.

Supermodel and Project Runway host Heidi Klum looked ravishing in a Calvin Klein gown and turquoise Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. I really wanted something with a super sexy, elegant silhouette. I went with a custom Calvin Klein Collection bisque silk crepe sheath dress with a plunging back and paired it with a gorgeous turquoise statement necklace from Lorraine Schwartz, Klum wrote on the AOL blog. Charlize Theron, in pink Dior, and Michelle Williams both sported headbands on the red carpet. Theron's accented a side messy-bun and Williams' topped her pixie cut.

Zooey Dechanel, who is nominated for her role in FOX's New Girl, rocked a 60s-vibe in a haute couture Prada gown with sparkling lime green bodice and brown skirt. Her nails were painted with mini tuxedos and her hair was styled in a bouffant coif.

Claire Danes was a major stand-out of the night dressed in a black and white J. Mendel dress with open-back and black latticed detailing. The stunner topped her look with red lipstick and simple diamond jewels. She is nominated for Homeland.

Embodying a black widow sexiness, Rooney Mara, star of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, dressed in black Nina Ricci with mermaid skirt and front, side and back cut-outs. The plunging V-neck adds extra sensuality. The actress said that she kept some of the piercings she had to get for the film, just in a case a sequel is in the works she will not have to re-pierce anything. Mara has been one of the most sought-after actress as of late. All eyes were looking at her on the red carpet.

Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara wore a dark blue Vera Wang dress. She said that she chooses Wang regularly because they fit her so well. She was joined on stage with co-star Julie Bowen, who opted for a prim look - a blush tulle Reem Acra dress with glittering cap sleeves. I didn't even wear a gown at my wedding. So I'm having my girl moment, she told Ryan Seacrest.

Nicole Richie wore a shimmering, silver Julien Macdonald dress and House of Harlow clutch. Richie will star in the upcoming NBC series Fashion Show. Richie, who is a fashion mogul herself, is thrilled. She stars alongside Jessica Simspon. We are really like a big family. It's been a lot of fun.

George Clooney and girlfriend Stacy Keibler arrived after a romantic vacation in Cabo. Keibler went with a crimson gown with draped cowl neck and up-swept hair. Clooney looked Old Hollywood chic in a black tuxedo and bow tie. The couple said they cannot wait for the after-parties. As for their fun date night, they usually opt for dinner. We like to do sushi, said Keibler.
