With the Golden Globes, Emmys, and Oscars hovering in the not-so-far future, consider this the most glamorous warmup around. The stars showed up for one of the year's first red carpets and kept up their end of the bargain (chiefly, showing off enough dazzling accessories and wow-worthy gowns to make even the chilliest locale feel a little brighter).
Sandra Bullock at the People's Choice Awards 2014
Sandra Bullock  left the neon at home , going with a leafy green dress from Peter Pilotto  that showed off her shape thanks to a wide band of white at the waist. And no boring pumps here — check out those Kurt Geiger  London Collection lizard heels!
Drew Barrymore at the People's Choice Awards 2014
Pregnant Drew Barrymore  showed us how maternity red carpet is done, picking a simple white and yellow Vionnet  t-shirt dress. She accessorized it with Irene Neuwirth  jewelry.
Britney Spears at the People's Choice Awards 2014
Britney Spears  lacy Mikael  D mini featured illusion sleeves that added something whimsy to the romantic look.
Jennifer Hudson at the People's Choice Awards 2014
Crisp white was a sharp choice for Jennifer Hudson , whose minimalist Kaufman Franco  dress was stunning. Instead of flashy shoes, she finished the look with simple sandals.
Heidi Klum at the People's Choice Awards 2014
You can typically count on Heidi Klum  to be one of the carpet's sexiest, and she didn't disappoint tonight! It was a Giorgio Armani  number with a deep V that really wowed us. She got her sparkle on with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry and embellished Christian Louboutin  heels.
Allison Williams at the People's Choice Awards 2014
With strong contrasting colors and cutouts at the waist, this David Koma  pick was pretty daring for Allison Williams, who's often nothing but classy (even when she looked almost nude! ). For heels, she went with Christian Louboutin .
Jessica Alba at the People's Choice Awards 2014
Jessica Alba  was a vision in white Jason Wu , going for a bandage dress that, while steamy, still hit respectably right at the calf. The monochrome vibe continued with white Casadei  pumps. For jewelry, she picked Jennifer Meyer  earrings and rings, plus a midi ring by Dionea Orcini.
Emily Deschanel at the People's Choice Awards 2014
Classic black and white was classical, in the Grecian sense, for Emily Deschanel, whose geometric-printed BCBG Max Azria Spring 2013 dress featured gentle pleats and draping.
Sarah Michelle Gellar at the People's Choice Awards 2014
Simple-but-special might as well be the motto for Sarah Michelle Gellar , whose black and white Sachin + Babi dress featured a halter neck held up by a metallic chain. And her shoes? Jimmy Choo , of course.
Anna Faris at the People's Choice Awards 2014
Funny lady Anna Faris  skipped the dress, opting for a glimmering matched two-piece Naeem Khan  set instead.
Naya Rivera at the People's Choice Awards 2014
Colorblocking never could've felt as scandalous as this! Naya Rivera's Michael Kors  Resort 2014 long-sleeve dress featured a nude top, white middle, and black bottom for a seriously sexy look. She finished it with nude sandals from Stuart Weitzman .
Nina Dobrev at the People's Choice Awards 2014
Has Nina Dobrev  been taking her fashion cues from the Duchess? She glittered in a style from Kate Middleton-approved Jenny Packham .
Kat Dennings at the People's Choice Awards 2014
This was no watered-down red carpet moment for Kat Dennings! We love that she went for formal, showing up in a strapless David Meister  Signature gown that featured an oversize rose print.
Lucy Hale at the People's Choice Awards 2014
The Pretty Little Liars actress  skipped length or volume in favor of a one-shouldered Gabriela Cadena dress that hit right below the knee.
Adelaide Kane at the People's Choice Awards 2014
White and lacy doesn't necessarily equate innocence. Adelaide Kane, star of Reign, picked a style with a mostly sheer bodice and a structured top that resembled a corset.
Beth Behrs at the People's Choice Awards 2014
And Beth Behrs simply couldn't decide on a color! Her gown featured both black and white with a paneled skirt.
Malin Akerman at the People's Choice Awards 2014
Malin Akerman's artsy black-and-white-print Cushnie et Ochs  dress was still fit for a siren with a serious scoop neck and T-bar that flashed some skin.
Kaley Cuoco at the People's Choice Awards 2014
After recently tying the knot in bright pink , Kaley Cuoco opted for a different hue, picking a cobalt blue and black combo.
