Naturally, the night's events brought out Hollywood's best, clad in gorgeous gowns; and hair, makeup, and nail looks that set the tone for an award season full of glitz and glamour.
Some of our favorite trends, like the 90's blowout and monochromatic makeup made their rounds on celebs like Lily James and Viola Davis. Ahead, find a complete roundup of our favorite looks from the Golden Globes red carpet.
Laverne Cox hit the carpet in Old Hollywood-esque glam with blonde chin-length curls and a red-orange pout that we're bookmarking for spring.
There's a lot to love about Tefi Pessoa's Golden Globes look: The wet side part, the super long french tips, the tattoos, smoked-out eyeshadow—chef's kiss.
Jennifer Coolidge brought her iconic blonde bombshell hair to the red carpet, this time styled with her trademark volume at the roots with shoulder-grazing curls. For makeup, she wore a full face of Victoria Beckham Beauty, applied by makeup artist Lily Keys.
Jenna Ortega debuted a new auburn curtain lob on the Golden Globes red carpet. The look is a far cry from her jet-black Wednesday strands, but we're equally obsessed. “We took a little risk, but I believe it’s good to have fun and try new things by just tweaking a little here and there," says her hairstylist David Stanwell, who used Fekkai products for the look. "We didn’t want it too rigid or set, and I still wanted to work with the haircut we had just done a few weeks ago. I love having the haircut make a statement, sculpting it around her face and playing with shapes that work.”
Emma D'Arcy walked the red carpet with an indigo cropped cut and icy blue glitter tears. Makeup artist Holly Silius used all Shiseido and Tata Harper for D'Arcy's look, including the Synchro Skin Self-Refreshing Foundation ($47) for their glowing skin and the Kajal InkArtist Pencils ($25) in the shades 08 Gunjo Blue and 09 Nippon Noir for those smudgy eyes and blue tears. A bit of the Shimmer GelGloss ($25) in shade 10 patted over the eyes gave the tears that wet, glimmery finish, and Tata Harper's Cream Highlighter ($45) in Flashy on the bridge of the nose, brow bone, cheekbones, and ears for a creamy glow.
Michelle Yeoh stunned with sleek side-parted hair, neutral rose-kissed skin, and chunky black winged liner. Celebrity stylist Robert Vetica styled Yeoh's hair using Better Not Younger’s Lift Me Up Hair Thickener ($37) and High Hold Thickening Hairspray ($37) to create volume and body. Vetica also used the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer ($450) and the Corrale straightener ($500) to perfect her look.
Angela Bassett stunned with side-swept waves, silver metallic eyes and monochromatic lips and cheeks. Her hairstylist, Randy Stodghill, used Navy Haircare, including the Pebble Beach Dry Texture Spray ($46), and Style Navigator Prep & Finish Spray ($30) for Bassett's "modern elegance" look.
Selena Gomez's tousled high ponytail and peach makeup proved that carpet glam can be effortless and still make a statement. Celebrity stylist Marissa Marino did Gomez's hair for the event using the René Furterer Style Holding Gel ($30) to secure her ponytail. She finished her look with the René Furterer Style Shine Mist ($34) for extra shine.
Lily James' red carpet hair was all the convincing we needed to request a fluffy 90's supermodel blowout at our next hair appointment. As for makeup, she kept it classic Hollywood all the way. "Lily wanted to reference Audrey Hepburn for tonight’s Golden Globes look, so we created a fresh, modern take for the red carpet," says her makeup artist Nina Park, who used Charlotte Tilbury products. "Magic Cream ($100), Beautiful Skin Foundation ($46) and Beautiful Skin Concealer ($33) perfected her complexion, while the Hollywood Glow Glide Face Architect Highlighter ($48) in Moonlit Glow gave her a golden hour glow effect."
Quinta Brunson pulled her hair into a wavy low ponytail to keep the attention on her stunning ombré eyeshadow and glowing skin. Celebrity Makeup Artist Renée Loiz enhanced Brunson's complexion using Beautyblender’s Bounce Always On Radiant Skin Tint ($29) and Beautyblender Bounce Liquid Whip Cream Blush in Berry ($22) on her cheeks and lips.
Julia Garner paired her icy blonde hair with peachy skin and lips to match and a thin upper-lid flick that made her blue eyes stand out. Her hairstylist Bobby Elliot used all ghd tools to sweep her heavy bangs to the side.
