golden globe modesty?

Award show season is upon us.  As I watch the red carpet, I love to see the beautiful gowns.  Gowns that cost more than my house, but beautiful none-the-less.  I always take special note of those that wear dresses that don't bare all.  Is there such a thing?  Last year I found two so-so dresses from the 2011 Emmys.

And now for the 2011 Golden Globes....Drum roll please....

Angelina Jolie

Sparkling Emerald Green - Atelier Versace

Only someone with a tall, lean body like Angelina's could pull this dress off properly. My short and stubby 5'2" frame could never handle such a dress, but I think she looks lovely.  And as E! Fashion Police so eloquently put it, "Angie's worn this style plenty of times—though this one has a more vintage feel—but she always owns it, like she's a wicked queen ruling the red carpet"

Scarlett Johansson
Elie Saab dress

While this dress has a plunging neckline, it is more modest than most on the red carpet.  As Elle magazine noticed, it had "just the right amount of romance".

Did you find any others?

While these get a thumbs up for modesty, they get a thumbs down for "ick" factor. Emma Stone, Leighton Meester
