When it comes to a glammed-up evening out, one truth is universal: getting ready is half the fun. And thanks to the age of Instagram and socially savvy glam squads, pre-event play-by-plays are ubiquitous, and the ideal means of feeding the collective’s unending thirst for red carpet content.
For Best Actress nominee Jodie Comer, a television drama nod called for an equally dramatic look—in this case, smoked and shimmering lids—furnished and captured by Hung Vanngo. A similarly sparkling moment augmented Joey King's scene-stealing Iris Van Herpen dress, while Dakota Fanning's ethereal Dior came with an equally sweet above-neck vibe, replete with center-separated blonde hair easy and bohemian enough to call Spahn Ranch to mind (a mane mentality echoed by co-star Margot Robbie). Yara Shahidi elevated her getting-ready routine with a characteristic dance break—braided updo and luminous skin playing well with her sunny Carolina Herrera gown—as elsewhere, Kerry Washington furthered her sultry Globes approach with an insouciant wink. And for Euphoria makeup muse Hunter Schafer? A taut ponytail, Swarovski crystals catching light from eyes, and beribboned hands made for a scene-setting pre-Globes moment.
Here, a collection of behind-the-scenes snaps that prove that, when it comes to award season, backstage rivals the main event.
