Dakota Johnson’s red Saint Laurent dress was possibly THE dress of the night but a slew of actresses opted for unflattering nude.

As usual there were plenty of misses. Solange Knowles in a red montrosity and Julian Moore in an ink-blotted sheath stood out for the wrong reasons. Reese Witherspoon almost pulled off a seriously meh Tom Ford gown while Lady Gaga got all the attention she wanted in red leather washing-up gloves.
