(CNN) -- At Sunday night's Golden Globes, Hollywood's biggest stars dazzled in a gorgeous mix of gowns. This year's red carpet was packed with every type of dress, but these 10 all had an undeniable "wow factor" that helped them stand out from the crowd. Here are our top picks:

Julianne Moore

Presenter Julianne Moore accented her strapless black Chanel gown with a pop of color: a stunning pair of Art Deco inspired emerald and diamond tassel earrings, a matching emerald ring and a 9-carat cushion-cut diamond ring, all by Fred Leighton.

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba was positively glowing in a pale lavender embroidered Gucci strapless gown with a simple train. She accessorized with a satin clutch and dangling Bulgari sparklers.

Charlize Theron

A vintage Cartier headband topped off best supporting sctress nominee Charlize Theron's loose curls for a soft, ethereal look. Her plunging neckline gown by Dior Couture had a cinched waist and dropped into two billowy ruffles for a dramatic effect.

Sofia Vergara

Bombshell nominee Sofia Vergara showed a softer side of her feminine sophistication in a teal curve-hugging strapless mermaid silhouette by Vera Wang and wide Harry Winston jeweled cuffs.

Angelina Jolie

Nominee Angelina Jolie went for a high-fashion look in a cream satin gown by Atelier Versace with a one-shoulder folded red accent. She accessorized with a striking red clutch and scarlet lips

Natalie Portman

In her first red carpet appearance since becoming a mom, Natalie Portman pulled off a daring color combination. Last year's best actress winner chose a strapless fuchsia gown by Lanvin with a folded red detail. Portman picked up on the accent color with a matching garnet clutch. She also wore jewels by Harry Winston and a chic chignon.

Freida Pinto

Presenter Freida Pinto channeled Grace Kelly in a teal strapless Prada gown in a retro silhouette. Her intricately woven gold and jeweled necklace was by Chopard.

Helen Mirren

Helen Mirren exemplified the best way to dress was for every age. Appropriately daring but not at all boring, she accessorized a navy Badgley Mischka gown with Fred Leighton jewels and Jimmy Choo stilettos.

Emma Stone

The flowing, sheer two-tone layers of fabric paired with the cap sleeves and plunging neckline on Presenter Emma Stone's Lanvin gown have a Grecian feel. But the star of "The Help" accented her look with a wide eagle adorned belt for an unexpected tough twist. A bag by Cartier completed the look.

Jessica Chastain

Best supporting actress nominee Jessica Chastain accessorized her embroidered high-neck white Givenchy gown with over $1 million worth of Harry Winston jewelry, including pearl and diamond earrings, a diamond feather ring, and a vintage diamond bracelet. The look feels retro without feeling costumey.
