KYRA SEDGWICK Her belted Bottega Veneta marked “the first time they've done a gown,” says Sedgwick. “It's funky and fun.”

Behind the Seams
CARRY ON: The award for best supporting date goes to Michael Bolton, who carried Nicollette Sheridan's cell phone so her Giorgio Armani makeup palette fit in her bag. The actress is among the first to own the Hollywood Edition palette, which hits stores in February. Each is signed in gold by Giorgio Armani, so even though she wasn't nominated, she took home a gold trophy. …
BAD HAIR NIGHT: Doctors—and viewers—swoon over him on Grey's Anatomy, but Patrick Dempsey wasn't pleased with his Globes look. At a party he joked to his wife, makeup artist Jillian Dempsey, “You monopolized the mirror, so I had to wing it. I had 20 minutes to get ready!” While he didn't have the stylist of his choice (“I wish Jillian would do my hair,” he said), he had great style inspiration: “I had to channel McDreamy a little.” …
IN HER CHOOS: For a Globes look, Scarlett Johansson knew what she wanted. “All year I'd been seeing fantastic dresses that were Valentino,” she said. She paired her final selection with ankle-strap Jimmy Choos. The shoes are now on auction through March 31 by Clothes Off Our Back; proceeds go to children's charities. …

SUITE DEAL: It was hair today, Globes tomorrow for Teri Hatcher, who spent the day before the event with daughter Emerson getting their hair done at Biolage's Get Glam/Do Good suite. Organizers donated $25,000 to Oceana and Tree-People on behalf of their guests.

HOW TO SHOW OFF A MORTGAGE-WORTH OF GEMS? WITH AN UPDO THAT'S AS ORNATE AS THE JEWELS
“In this case, the hair came first, then the jewelry”—a Fred Leighton choker—says Christian Dior makeup artist Leslie Lopez, who worked with hairstylist Serge Normant to create a look that was “glamorous, not severe.”
Taking the hair-that-works-with-the-jewelry concept a step further, Knightley added Cartier's 1948 platinum and diamond clip to her hair, pairing it with antique pear-shaped diamond drops.
Since Beckinsale wore “huge earrings”—Lorraine Schwartz's 63-carat, $350,000 pair—stylist Renato Campora says, “I had to compensate with the right amount of volume in the hair.”
Campora also did this “low chignon with braids and a headband, like a Botticelli painting.” He called the look, which showed Fred Leighton earrings, “inspired by the Renaissance”; Hathaway found it “young and fun.”
