Natasha Lyonne

While Natasha is now a seasoned awards circuit pro, she hasn't gotten caught up in the usual glitz. Leave the princess gowns and mermaid fishtails for royal balls; this silver and cream embroidered Proenza Schouler dress and unexpected metallic clutch are what I hope we see more of in the future.

 

Emmy Rossum

And the winner of the Most Glamorous of the Night Award goes to Emmy Rossum! In this Swarovski-embellished Armani Privé top and skirt combo along with an Armani clutch, she looked every inch a Hollywood star.

 

Gretchen Mol

Then again, what's wrong with head-to-toe silver? Shimmery Edie Parker clutches are made for awards shows (though that doesn't stop me from carrying mine on the day-to-day!).

 

Joanne Froggatt

Joanne left the maid's uniform at Downton Abbey and went full-on glam in this stunning Honor gown and geometric Ferragamo clutch. All-black is classic for a reason.

 

Kelly Osbourne

I love that Kelly advocates lesser-known designers, and Italian label Benedetta Bruzziches is more than worthy of a red carpet nod. Just check out that tongue-in-cheek hand clasp!

Naomi Watts

Who needs beads and sequins when you have sweet honeycomb from Bulgari?

 

Sophia Bush

Surprise, surprise: more Edie Parker! I'm not complaining, though. The contrast between Sophia's voluptuous curves and the sharp edges of her sparkly box clutch makes for a lovely combination.

 

Julia Roberts

The face of Givenchy's spring 2015 campaign shows why she landed the gig in the house's sleek, corseted jumpsuit (this is the second year in a row she's worn one to the show) and coordinating Givenchy clutch. Might I add most tasteful cleavage of the night?

 

Viola Davis

Viola Davis kept it simple in a white Max Mara dress, but that gold-studded clutch is the stark opposite and it gives the ensemble just the right amount of kick. 

 

Maggie Gyllenhaal

 

Cleavage was a major trend on the carpet, and while Maggie's sexy Thakoon dress surely garnered attention, my eyes went straight to that python printed, leather tassel-swinging mini bag.
