We admit we were drooling over Elle MacPherson last night — that body! that hair! — but some other ladies on the Golden Globes red carpet also had us doing double takes. Octavia Spencer, Melissa McCarthy and Amber Riely all swathed their curves in gorgeous designer gowns, highlighting their best features and leaving us with a case of fashion envy.

Spencer — who nabbed a best supporting actress award and gave another moving acceptance speech — looked lovely in a lavender Tadashi Shoji V-neck cap-sleeve gown with jewel detail. The Help star was still searching for a Globes gown last week, but definitely found a winner.

Meanwhile, funnygirl McCarthy opted against a design from her own label, and instead chose a long-sleeved V-neck emerald gown by Badgley Mischka, sticking with several of the night’s big trends. Glee‘s Riley selected a dress by the esteemed design duo, too, rocking the red carpet in a strapless fire-engine dress.

All three stars were perfect 10s in their Globes gowns, but we want to know what you think. Tell us: Which plus-size star dressed best?

Amber hands down. She really has a great stylist, because her look is always on point. Octavia then Melissa. Melissa’s dress by Badgley Mischka doesn’t make her stand out. It’s looks matronly.
