Tonight's red carpet appearances at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards was a battle of the bands. Charlize Theron wowed in a peachy-beige Dior gown with a plunging neckline and sported a sparkling headband to match, and Michelle Williams adorned her hair with a dazzling Fred Leighton headband.

Both women channeled the '80s with their 2-inch-wide hair bands, but Theron's choice looked practically gamine while Williams (with her pixie cut)  looked more like a schoolgirl than Marilyn. Who wins the battle of the bands? The jury's out, but the verdict for either would be  "Gorgeous ." One thing's certain: Headbands are making a comeback.
