Golden Globes Report: The Perfect 10

4. Evan Rachel Wood
Not unlike Mara, Wood has established herself as someone who embraces divinely thoughtful red-carpet choices, and she isn't afraid to take some chances. Hers was the one dress I wish I could have seen up close and personal: Gucci's Frida Giannini custom-designed the one-of-a-kind gown as part of the label's couture-driven Premiere collection, and between the sketch Gucci sent in advance and Wood's red-carpet photos, the halter-neck design looks like nothing less than a wonder, from the black tulle at its neckline to paillettes that resemble fish scales to ostrich plumes and other full-on feathers adorning a skirt that seemed to float down the red carpet. Wood paired the look with Gucci black suede evening sandals and a black resin and gold-metal-frame clutch by Ferragamo. How I wish she would have taken the prize Sunday night for Best Supporting Actress for her work in HBO's Mildred Pierce (Jessica Lange ultimately won, and rightfully so, for American Horror Story), because I would have liked nothing more than another look at Wood's sublime gown.
