The 2012 Golden Globes red carpet witnessed a variety of stunning neutral-tone dresses, all of which are much less polarizing than hilarious host Ricky Gervais. While jewel-toned frocks were also heavily represented at the 69th Annual Golden Globes, the likes of Jessica Biel and Diane Lane played it safe in elegant beige-colored gowns.

Modern Family's Julie Bowen and Sarah Hyland, who play mother and daughter on the small screen, wore fabulous Reem Acra and vintage Dolce & Gabbana gowns, respectively. Piper Perabo's incredible dress is a special edition Demmer Fergara gown from the Theyskens' Theory Spring 2012 collection, while Jessica Chastain shines in Givenchy.

The 2012 Golden Globes red carpet event is just the beginning of the awards season, so it will be interesting to see how many neutral-tone dresses we will see at the SAG Awards and the Oscars in the coming months!
