Was it just me or were this year's Oscars Academy Awards the most

PFH its ever been? Even Red Carpet analysts were discussing how modest Hollywood's new look has become.

Golden Globes 2012 PFH Red Carpet

This year's Golden Globes' red carpet was full of celebrities donned in PFH couture looking their finest!
