Rhapsody in blue: Michelle Williams and Helen Mirren are knockouts in navy.

The People's Choice Awards earlier in the week may have been devoted to emerald green, but blue emerged as the color of the night at the 2012 Golden Globes on January 15.

A winner for My Week with Marilyn, Michelle Williams resisted her recent Marilyn Monroe tendencies with a fashion-forward navy Jason Wu number boasting three-quarter sleeves and a belted waist. A diamond garland headband gave her blonde pixie a dash of flapper girl charm, while a diamond snake ring and diamond stud earrings added extra shine, all by Fred Leighton for Forevermark.

And though she just won an award for wearing red, Helen Mirren switched things up with a dark blue V-neck Badgley Mischka gown boasting a ruffled skirt and bold silver waistband, which she paired with a clutch, also by the design duo, as well as sapphire and diamond Fred Leighton jewelry.

Kelly Osbourne, Freida Pinto and Sofia Vergara all opt for the blue hue.

E!'s red carpet pre-show host Kelly Osbourne paired her grayish-lavender hair and pavé diamond Vhernier jewelry with a box-sleeved Pre-Fall 2012 Zac Posen number in a striking shade of teal.

Freida Pinto, meanwhile, donned a peacock-inspired blue silk cloqué strapless bustier Prada gown with a duchesse satin belt. The stunning actress accessorized with a gorgeous yellow diamond Chopard bib necklace.

Nominee Sofia Vergara—whose latest Diet Pepsi commercial aired during the broadcast—gave the hue a sexy spin thanks to her custom Vera Wang peacock strapless mermaid gown with a pieced knife-pleated bodice and swirling sheared bias flange skirt detail. Sleek side-swept hair and Harry Winston jewels completed the Modern Family star's bombshell look.

The color also proved surprisingly versatile, from Jodie Foster's teal beaded Giorgio Armani to Tilda Swinton's icy blue Haider Ackermann.
