See the Best Golden Globes Dresses Through the Years

There’s no red carpet like a Golden Globes red carpet. Through the years, fan-favorite stars have showcased their best, boldest and most beautiful fashions at the annual awards show. From little black dresses to sparkling gowns and unexpected power suits, the stylish eye candy is endless. When thinking back on the most standout Golden Globes looks, it’s hard to pick just one — but Jennifer Lopez is certainly a contender. The “Waiting for Tonight” songstress turned heads at the 2009 soirée when she stepped onto the red carpet in a gold Marchesa gown that featured a plunging neckline and a backless construction. The dress was finished with a cascading train. Beyoncé also brought the drama that year, commanding attention in an ivory Elie Saab gown. The strapless number hugged her famous curves and was equipped with a daring high slit. The “Halo” singer elevated the garb with a stunning Lorraine Schwartz diamond necklace. Anne Hathaway looked like a trophy herself at the 2011 ceremony, wearing a bronze-colored Armani Prive gown. The glistening design was made with long sleeves and included a protruding shoulder detail. As the Bride Wars star posed for photographers, she revealed a sexy surprise as the getup was completed with an open back. That year, Hathaway was nominated for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy Motion Picture for Love & Other Drugs. While she didn’t take home the award, she scored Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for Les Misérables in 2013. Another noteworthy Golden Globes ensemble came from Issa Rae in 2018. The Insecure creator was a vision in a black Atelier Prabal Gurung gown that shined against the light. The piece looked like a work of art thanks to its pleated skirt and long-flowing cape. Almost every star at the 2018 Golden Globes opted to wear all-black as a form of solidarity in support of the Time’s Up movement, which launched to raise awareness about sexual harassment. Rae spoke about her meaningful fashion choice via Gurung, who shared her sentiments via Instagram at the time, writing: “There’s a new resolve, and it feels like even with the action points that we have with the legal defense fund, and making agencies employ more women in positions of power, that it feels like this can actually get done.” Rae’s quote concluded: “So it’s more than just a color. It’s more than just wearing black. We’re about that action.” Keep scrolling to see the best Golden Globes dresses through the years:
