Three Reem Acra gowns graced this year's Golden Globes on such notable names as Madonna, Julie Bowen, and Diane Lane. While Bowen's Reem Acra gown recast a bridal look from the designer's Spring 2012 collection in a shade of blush, Madonna's emerald-and-pewter gown and Lane's shimmering nude gown took new approaches to signature Acra elements.

A patchwork skirt of green silk squares—previously seen as a detail on this bridal gown— fades into the glittering bodice of Madonna's custom dress, which also features sheer, metallic cap sleeves. Exuding the softer side of Acra's aesthetic, actress Diane Lane opted for head-to-toe sparkle with a strapless nude dress beneath a beaded tulle overlay and illusion V-neckline—similar in technique to this Reem Acra ready-to-wear look.
