18 of the Most Iconic Golden Globes Looks of All Time
As we await the arrival of Sunday’s Golden Globes red carpet and all the buzz-worthy fashion its likely to bring thanks to the silent protest Hollywood’s leading ladies and men will be making with their all-black ensembles and TIME’S UP pins, we’re reliving all the iconic styles that have brought us to this moment. From Lara Flynn Boyle’s famous pink tutu to Scarlett Johansson’s traffic-stopping fiery red gown, it's all here and more: Scroll through to take a fashionable stroll down memory lane, and don't forget to tune into this year's Facebook red carpet livestream at 7pm/6c ahead of Sunday's big show.
Lara Flynn Boyle: Despite being one of the most shocking outfits in the show’s history, it’s also hands down *THE* most iconic. There’s not a fashionista alive who doesn’t recall the Lucky Dog star’s 2003 David Cardona pink tutu creation, complete with lace-up pointe-inspired heels. As the designer said back in 2014, “People are still talking about it 10 years later… We’re still talking about her, aren’t we?” Yes, yes we are. (Photo via Kevin Winter/Getty)
Jennifer Lopez J. Lo was a classic 2000s babe in her orange Grecian Michael Kors gown back in 2004, rocking bronzed skin, her signature deep V, and a dazzling pair of hoops. (Photo via Carlo Allegri/Getty)
Claire Danes: Danes donned the equivalent of Gwyneth Paltrow’s famed pink Ralph Lauren gown with a svelte pink custom Calvin Klein number all her own in 2011 that had jaws on the floor. (Photo via Frazer Harrison/Getty)
Natalie Portman: Even while pregnant, Portman managed to cement her place in Golden Globes carpet history, accepting her win for Best Actress in a Drama Motion Picture for Black Swan in a sweet strapless red and pink Viktor & Rolf silk extravaganza of a gown. (Photo via Frazer Harrison/Getty)
Angelina Jolie: Atelier Versace was responsible for the modest-yet-stunning look Jolie donned on the 2011 red carpet, with its standout, bold green hue setting off her chestnut locks and fair skin. (Photo via Jason Merritt/Getty)
Charlize Theron: Theron was pretty in pink in 2012 courtesy of this show-stopping Christian Dior piece with a plunging neck, a thigh-high slit, and a thick, structural bow. (Photo via Frazer Harrison/Getty)
Evan Rachel Wood: Wood made a serious fashion statement at last year’s awards show, bucking the traditional dress for an Altuzarra suit inspired by both Marlene Dietrich and David Bowie. Wood said it was an effort to show girls and women everywhere “That they’re not a requirement. You don’t have to wear one if you don’t want to and to just be yourself. Your worth is more than that.” Hear, hear! (Photo via Frazer Harrison/Getty)
Scarlett Johansson: The Avengers: Infinity War star sizzled in a red hot Valentino gown that didn’t need many bells and whistles to turn some SERIOUS heads back in 2006. (Photo via Frazer Harrison/Getty)
Anne Hathaway Though Hathaway didn’t take home a 2011 Golden Globe for her performance in Love & Other Drugs, she DID take home best in style, dazzling on the red carpet (literally) in an Armani Privé Swarovski crystal-embellished gown with a super low scoop back. (Photo via Jason Merritt/Getty)
Keira Knightley: Knightley was a venerable fashion gift at the 2006 GGs, wrapped up like a present in this gorgeous white Valentino column down with a silver bow embellishment. (Photo via Frazer Harrison/Getty)
Lily Collins: Collins blew us away last year when she showed up in a sheer Zuhair Murad piece fit for a princess, what with its gorgeous tulle and floral embroidery. (Photo via Frazer Harrison/Getty)
Emma Stone: Iconic for both its outside-the-box vibe and its gorgeous silhouette, Stone’s 2015 strapless Lanvin jumpsuit, complete with flowing bow, was an instant classic. (Photo via Jason Merritt/Getty)
January Jones: Jones followed Johansson’s lead in 2011, choosing a bright red Versace number for the Globes ceremony that was all about the va va voom with its deep plunging neckline and midsection cutouts. Ow ow! (Photo via Jason Merritt/Getty)
Cameron Diaz: Diaz had us doing a double take back in 2007, not only because of her brunette (!) locks, but also for this totally memorable white tiered Valentino getup. (Photo via Kevin Winter/Getty)
Anna Kendrick: Elegant, romantic, and flowing was this breathtaking Monique Lhuiller dress from 2015, as worn by a radiant Kendrick. (Photo via Frazer Harrison/Getty)
Sienna Miller: Though the couture label may be controversial these days due to its former affiliation with Harvey Weinstein (co-founder Georgina Chapman is Weinstein’s estranged wife), Miller shone in this Marchesa piece back in 2007. Featuring a gilded metallic bodice and a flowing white skirt, the gown was nothing short of a masterpiece. (Photo via Kevin Winter/Getty)
Drew Barrymore: Barrymore recreated plenty of looks from days gone by for her recent InStyle cover shoot, but alas, she missed this gem from the 2009 Golden Globes, for which she wore an ice blue, asymmetrical John Galliano frock, a Roger Vivier clutch, and a bouffant ‘do we won’t be forgetting anytime soon.

Zendaya: Leave it to Zendaya to make high fashion functional, taking her burgundy floral Marchesa garment up a few inches for the show's afterparty. (Photo via Jason Merritt/Getty)
