With any prestigious awards ceremony, all the ladies know that their choice of attire will be studied, scrutinised and praised or slated.
But it could also mean the chance to raise their profile, especially if their outfit stands out from the crowd - which seemed to be the case at this year's Golden Globes.
From cleavages that looked in danger of escaping, to thigh high splits flashing lots of leg, there were some very daring dresses on display this year.
Buxom: Bridesmaids star Wendi McLendon-Covey looked in danger of spilling out of her low-cut emerald dress as she stopped for photos at the viewing party while Salma Hayek showed off her ample assets in a very tight dress
Those ladies who have been blessed with buxom assets had no hesitation in showing them off.
They included Bridesmaids star Wendi McLendon-Covey, who looked in danger of spilling out of her low-cut emerald dress as she stopped for photos at the viewing party.
Salma Hayek, another star known for her ample assets struggled to contain hers in her very tight dress as she posed on the red carpet.
Shredded and salacious: Model Erin Wasson wore next to nothing as she demanded attention on the red carpet at the InStyle Golden Globes after party last night
Dang, girl! Even Sean 'P Diddy' Combs didn't know where to look as he walked past the scantily-clad model
And probably the most audacious of them all was on - or barely on - model Erin Wasson, who may not be one of the biggest names in the industry but she certainly set tongues wagging last night.
The Pirelli model arrived at the InStyle magazine bash in a show-stopping, attention-grabbing outfit which looked more suited to an erotic nightclub than a Golden Globes after-party, guaranteeing her maximum exposure.
Her outfit clung to her tall and slender frame and showed off her long legs - but did absolutely nothing for her flat chest and just highlighted her lack of assets in the wrong way.
Hope they're strapped in! Sopranos star Jamie-Lynn Sigler wore an off-the-shoulder black dress which struggled to contain her assets just like Kim Kardashian, although she looked as though hers were contain a bit better
Even Sean 'P Diddy' Combs looked astonished as he walked past Erin on the red carpet but it was hard to tell whether his glance in her direction was one of admiration or shock.
And although Erin's dress, which left very little to the imagination, might have been the most daring, her lack of assets left her in the shade compared to her more buxom fellow guests.
Sopranos star Jamie-Lynn Sigler, for instance, wore an off-the-shoulder black dress which was stunning and elegant but struggled to contain her assets.
Plunging: Rooney Mara and Emma Stone both wore very low necklines that were in danger of revealing a little too much
Reality TV star Kim Kardashian also wore a low cut black dress, which plumped up her impressive bosom to perfection.
But even those who don't have much to show up top still managed to impress with their necklines.
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo star Rooney Mara and Emma Stone both wore very low dresses that were in danger of revealing a little too much.

For some titillation, The Artist actress Adria Tennor wore a red dress with cheeky detail while the detail on Glee's Lea Michele's fishtail dress just about covered her up.
Paris Hilton also opted for a plunging neckline in a gold dress that clung to her chest while Julie Bowen went for the Grace Kelly look, even though her assets looked in danger of falling out.
The Artist star Penelope Ann Miller's red dress looked like it was slipping down her bosom while Jessica Alba looked like she could so with pulling her silver scaly frock up.
