Golden Globes 2015: gorgeous gowns and dramatic dresses

Last night, January 11th, marked the 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards, a night that brings together some of the world’s most well-known actors and actresses, honoring the work they’ve done in the last year.

While some winners were shocking (like Meryl Streep not receiving Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture), others were well-deserved (Kevin Spacey’s Best Actor in a TV Series Drama for House of Cards).

But, let’s be real, it wasn’t Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s one-liners that we tuned in for, it was the glorious gowns, couture corsets and floor-length frocks that drew us to our flat-screens.

From metallics to embroidery, winter whites and Emma Stone’s jumpsuit, we were in awe as these leading ladies lead their way down the red carpet.

So, without further ado, here are our nominees for best dressed at this year’s Golden Globes.

Colorful Costumes

While the carpet was red enough, these women showed us how to stand out, not blend in.

Metallic Mavens  

Similarly to last year’s award shows, metallics made an appearance on the red carpet, too. From stunning silver to brilliant bronze, these women were gleaming with glittery goodness.

Embellished and Embroidered 

The one trend that was evident on the red carpet, however, was not a color this year, but instead embroidery. We couldn’t put these women in any particular categories; their individuality truly stood out with these carefully crafted couture pieces. Again we see metallics, pinks, and winter whites.

These women know how to work it. Let’s see what pieces pop for the next awards show, the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Stay tuned (literally)!
