We're just a few days out from the Golden Globes 2020 ceremony, which will officially kick off awards season as top films, shows, and celebrities battle it out for top honors. And let's be honest, while it's thrilling to see whether your favorite new movies will take home the prize (if you didn't spend your holidays catching up on those, get on that), one of the most exciting parts of this time of year is all the red carpet magic. The hour before each ceremony begins is truly a fashion fairytale as we witness all the ways top designers make attendees look as radiant as the awards they might be getting. This is bound to be a suspenseful highlight all awards season—the Little Women cast surely has some elegant moments in store, and we're already wondering if Tom Ford has Oscars looks in his plan with how he'll already be over in LA and all—and it all begins this Sunday as celebrities show up to toast (quite literally, if you know the Golden Globes) the first awards show of the decade.
Over decades upon decades of Golden Globes looks, countless iconic moments have emerged, and over time, we've noticed a few key trends that result in a foolproof yet memorable ensemble. Among these is the black dress—whether going for a sleek LBD moment or making a #MeToo statement, it seems one can't go wrong—as well as picking a golden, sparkly look to match the trophy. And of course, nothing stands out like all-out statements, which have transformed celebrities from Cher to Lady Gaga into fashion stars to watch. Ahead of the Golden Globes 2020 red carpet parade, we revisited 30 of the best looks in the ceremony's history, all of which reflect both their time and iconic Hollywood glamour.
