The Golden Globes red carpet 2014 was overflowing with star power in Beverly Hills on Sunday night (Jan. 12), and the annual "E! Live from the Red Carpet" special helped us keep track of who was wearing what. If you missed any of the fashion fun, check out our red carpet wrap-up below!

Stay tuned for more coverage throughout the night, including a full winner's list.

Golden Globes Red Carpet 2014: Did Your Favorite Stars Sizzle or Fizzle?

Zooey Deschanel looked vintage glam in a love-it-or-hate-it Oscar de la Renta dress that featured full tulle skirts and a boxy, beaded top with a scoop neck. Her hair looked polished and super smooth, pinned up in a sassy side bun with a white rose tucked behind her ear.

Nashville star Hayden Panettiere looked beautiful in a black and white color-blocked design by Tom Ford; the halter-style bodice and slit up the left leg flattered the svelte starlet's figure.

Naomi Watts chose a slinky silver Tom Ford dress that featured sexy side cutouts. Jennifer Lawrence looked beautiful in a strapless white Dior creation that had black bands cinching her skirts for a half-glam, half-punk rock look.

Best Dressed Nominees

Nominee Lupita Nyong'o was without a doubt the best dressed on the Golden Globes red carpet this year. The 12 Years a Slave actress and recent Yale graduate turned heads in a fire-engine red Ralph Lauren gown that managed both bare shoulders and floor-length cape. Her punky pixie-mohawk and simple jewels really allowed the dress to shine.

American Hustle star Amy Adams looked 70s chic in a color-blocked Valentino halter dress in two tones of red with her hair in a braided bun. Simply perfection!

Taylor Swift swooped in and nearly stole the show in a cherry red Carolina Herrera gown that featured a black sweetheart neckline. Her hair was pinned up, allowing just a few perfect, golden curls to frame her face. (Check out Jennifer Lawrence photo-bombing Taylor Swift above and get the full story here on E! online!)

Worst Dressed Nominees

Kelly Cuoco-Sweeting in a ball gown of muddy, muted pastels that featured an ill-fitting corset top. She wore her hair loose and swept over on shoulder, which was a bit too casual but pretty nonetheless.

Lena Dunham tried really hard this time, but the glam look just isn't working for her. Somehow, that becomes more and more painfully clear the harder she tries. The big, bright yellow mermaid gown didn't flatter a single one of the Girls star's curves. The simple diamond necklace she wore was the only highlight of Dunham's look, and the sparkle mercifully helped distract from what was going on below the neck.

Golden Globes Red Carpet 2014: Maternity and Menswear

We didn't love Drew Barrymore's Monique Lhuillier dress for its fit or design, but she was clearly all dressed up in love on Sunday night's Golden Globes red carpet, and who can hate on that? The pregnant actress was glowing as she spoke to "E! Live from the Red Carpet" host Ryan Seacrest..

A pregnant Kerry Washington showcased her baby bump in silver Balenciaga, earning a few more maternity style points than Barrymore for its elegant silhouette, but it was Olivia Wilde, also sporting a baby bump, who truly rocked the mommy-and-me look in a sparkling, emerald green Gucci gown.

As for the men, stars like Mike Tyson, Tom Hanks and Liev Schreiber donned Tom Ford, while Matthew McConaughey looked dapper in Dolce & Gabbana. A clean-shaven Bryan Cranston looked great as he walked the Golden Globes red carpet in a Burberry suit, his lovely wife by his side clearly his best accessory.
