The star of CBS' "2 Broke Girls," Behrs dazzled in a long, backless sequined red gown.

Presenter Amanda Seyfried opted for Givenchy, wearing a short, purple and black lace dress with spaghetti straps and gold detailing. She cinched it with a bright orange belt and carried a matching orange clutch.

Actress Laura Bell Bundy looked great in a strapless, floor-length bright blue gown with a sparkly buistier.

Singer Sheryl Crow, making her first red carpet appearance since announcing that she has a benign brain tumor, turned heads in navy, floor-length gown with a lace bodice and a satin skirt ending in a slight train.

Crow, 50, wasn't the only middle-aged star to outshine her younger colleagues. Tracie Benett dazzled in a pale pink gown with a raspberry tulle overlay and a crystal embellishment at the waist.

Stockard Channing wore a long, low-cut sequined gown, in black and Benadette Peters opted for a strapless mermaid dress in a deep purple, which she highlighted with silver accessories.
