Conformity is so boring. Lucky for us, celebrities agree — especially when it comes to dressing for the Golden Globes. These stars opted to shun traditional gowns for designer looks that push the envelope.

How many hours did it take to create Chrissy Teigen's Zuhair Murad gown? The soft pink gown looks like a work of art... and it fits the Sports Illustrated model's body like a glove.

2. Kristen Wiig

Comedian Kristen Wiig looks like she stepped out of a glam '70s Halston ad with her off-the-shoulder white floral gown. We love the quirky look — and she looks gorgeous in it!

3. Rosamund Pike

New mom Rosamund Pike didn't shy away from showing off some skin in her lingerie-inspired Vera Wang gown. The gown has plenty going on in the front, but the back is especially gorgeous.

4. Jennifer Lopez

It's been 15 years since Jennifer Lopez made the world collectively lose its mind with her green Versace dress. Well, she's still turning heads in leg- and cleavage-baring looks... and dare we say she looks even better than she did back then! The 45-year-old actress and singer went for the bombshell look with her nude Zuhair Murad gown and va-va-voom hair. We bow down to you, JLo.

5. Kerry Washington

We can honestly say this is the most original gown we've ever seen on the red carpet. The Scandal star's Mary Katrantzou gown is two-toned and full of texture. We see something new about it every time we look at it.

6. Anna Kendrick

Pitch Perfect 2 star Anna Kendrick reminds us of a fairy tale princess in her pink floral Monique Lhuillier gown that features plenty of tulle in the full skirt. Perfect.

7. Jane Fonda

Jane Fonda is one of the original divas — and she shows today's young starlets that she still has it with her red Versace dress that features sexy side cutouts embellished with the brand's famous safety pin look. Seriously sexy at 77. Yes, 77!

8. Claire Danes

The dramatic texture on Homeland star Claire Danes' Valentino gown is just so interesting to look at. It's unlike anything we've seen her wear before — and we love this daring side.

9. Keira Knightley

Mom-to-be Keira Knightley shows that maternity fashion can still be couture — and just a bit quirky — with her bug-printed Chanel dress. We love the ruffled collar, too! So different, yet so fashion-forward.

10. Lupita Nyong'o

Last year's most talked-about red carpet star shows that she has no intention of slowing down this year. The actress' pink and purple Giambattista Valli haute couture dress is so feminine and pretty — and the floral bodice is the perfect way to top it off.

11. Julianne Moore

Julianne Moore shines — literally! — in her silver Givenchy gown. It seems like stars have shied away from wearing shiny, sparkly looks on the red carpet, so it's only fitting that this beauty be the one to bring it back.

12. Allison Williams

Girls star Allison Williams turned our heads in her Armani Privé gown. It wasn't just the red color, though: The tiered texture on the gown makes it that much more beautiful to look at.
