NEW YORK, N.Y. - Lupita Nyong'o wowed in a sexy, caped red silk strapless gown from Ralph Lauren and Lena Dunham showed up Sunday night in form-fitting canary yellow — tattoos out — for the Golden Globes, one of Hollywood's biggest fashion fests.

Kerry Washington complimented her baby bump in sleeveless white with a low neck and draped effect up top from Balenciaga.

"I also feel like I have the best date of the night, my little accessory here," she told E! Entertainment.

Early arrivals included Zooey Deschanel in a gold ballet-skirted Oscar de la Renta with a youthful, boxy cropped top and vintage Neil Lane earrings. Other stars and nominees went for older Hollywood shimmer in slinky gold, silver and Champagne.

Cate Blanchett provided an early Katharine Hepburn red-carpet moment in Armani with high lace at the neck and a how-low-can-you-go back, along with Chopard earrings.

Amy Poehler picked three custom gowns from Stella McCartney, including a slinky black halter look, while her co-host for the awards season opener, Tina Fey, went for a fuller, strapless red and black from Carolina Herrera as her first look.

Amy Adams wore two shades of red in a backless high-waisted halter dress with a low front slit to the waist by Valentino.

Dunham, yanking at the top of her Zac Posen gown as she waited for her turn on the red carpet, joked about eating and the awards season as she practiced her diva poses. "I actually ate a thick patty of hamburger before I came, like a cave woman," she joked to E!

More subdued was Elizabeth Moss in an embellished Bordeaux and black, short-sleeve gown from J. Mendel, her choice from about five she considered.

Tom Ford was Hayden Panettiere's choice — a black-and-white halter with a high side slit.

"I'd wear a plastic bag if it was designed by him," she said on E!
