Lucy Liu's dress is a hot tip for the fashionista's favourite at the Golden Globes. It's not often that stars opt for florals at awards shows, but this is proof that it can be just as dramatic as embellishment or sparkle.

Her strapless dress with oversized skirt is by Carolina Herrera, and it's bound to split the vote when it comes to the best-dressed list. We love it for the unexpectedness and the sheer drama of the shape, which juts out at the hips with huge pleats, but we know it's not really the classic glamour many people want to see on nights like this.

As far as we're concerned, in a sea of black gowns and fishtails, it's a breath of fresh air and something a bit unusual. We love Lucy for taking a risk, and she just about pulled it off without looking like she's dressed in her old drapes.
