Each year the Golden Globes brings on a sea of new looks. While the focus may be on the fashion when it comes to the pre-show festivities, it’s the hair and makeup that makes all the difference.
Stunning hair and makeup can turn a just eh dress into a statement-maker and sometimes even save a questionable fashion choice. Meanwhile, the wrong hair and makeup can overshadow even the most gorgeous gown.
And for those of us who don’t have many (or any) occasions to don dramatic evening-gowns, the beauty trends are often the most translatable red carpet trends to real life.
That’s why we’re just as excited to see the latest hair, makeup and nail trends that emerge from Sunday night’s red carpet.
We’ll be here covering the pre-show extravaganza — including all the red carpet’s best beauty looks (and the inevitable misses). But as we countdown to the main event, we’re taking a look back at some of the Golden Globes’ most memorable looks over the years.
Fact is, the Golden Globes are simply another opportunity for stars to play a character — only, unlike the roles that so often win them the globe, this is their chance to play the most gorgeous characters of their choosing.January Jones channeled, with her platinum ’20s-inspired locks and crimson lips in 2011, and Beyonce’s 2007 disco throwback, with ultra-long, ultra-straight locks and big brows.
That same year, British beauty, Sienna Miller went way old-school, turning to Ancient Greece for inspiration and pioneering wraparound braids on the red carpet.
And let’s not forget the innocent look of Miley Cyrus in 2009, donning long, wavy curls and sweet pink glossy lips. It’s hard to imagine it was the same girl now rocking a bleached-blonde punk-rock ‘do.
