High Style: Return of the Goddess dress

Among the old Hollywood Glamour and the mermaid silhouettes found on the red carpet of the 2012 Golden Globes, the Goddess dress was seen making a come-back in traditional and decidedly daring forms. Busy Phillips kicks off our goddess list with a traditional style, topping off the Grecian look with a simple skinny silver headband on a high-volume style. A look that only tall women should attempt, this goddess style can be striking, though it does hide, well, everything!

Loving Viola Davis in her Pucci showing us some well-toned legs. This goddess dress gives Viola nice shape without corsetting the woman’s body as many of the other styles on the carpet this year. Elegance with moment, Viola looks radiant; probably because she can take full breaths in her dress!

Mila Kunis in Dior gives black a new meaning with this mutli-dimensional look. Looking as fierce as the Dior model who wore the dress down the runway for the Spring show, Kunis doesn’t overshadow the drama of this structured goddess with too-big jewels. Her earrings are a beautiful dainty sparkle mirroring the swing of the skirt of the dress. And, come on, nice rock!!

Finally, I’ve saved the best for last. That firey redhead Emma Stone dares to bare- just enough- in the impeccable Lanvin. With peekaboo sides that are just the right amount of sultry, the beautiful stripe of true red down the sides, as if in homage to the wearer’s hair, and the finishes of the belt and studded shoulder tucks; this goddess revives the style in a truly fresh and fascinating way. With her bold style and mature sense of what works, Emma will come to define herself as a style icon in years to come.

Thank you, HuffPost Style, for the following photos of these Goddess dresses.
