Due to the Writers Guild of America strike in 2008, the Golden Globes ceremony was cancelled, so we’re throwing it back to 2007 so you can revisit three still-stylish-today looks: Jennifer Garner’s vintage Gaultier design, Reese Witherspoon’s festive yellow Nina Ricci cocktail dress or Beyoncé’s high-glam Elie Saab gown.

The stars returned in 2009 bringing feminine, stop-and-stare and stately gowns to the carpet. Do you like Demi Moore’s romantic Dior halter, Jennifer Lopez’s risqué Marchesa look or Kate Winslet’s classic strapless Yves Saint Laurent gown the most?

In 2010 Drew Barrymore, Penélope Cruz and  Sandra Bullock all arrived in classic, feminine gowns. Barrymore chose an embellished Atelier Versace one-shoulder gown, Cruz went with a romantic Armani Privé mermaid design and Bullock picked a purple Bottega Veneta strapless ballgown.

Sofia Vergara stuck to her signature, a mermaid style gown (in Vera Wang), while Angelina Jolie (in Versace) and Anne Hathaway (in Armani Privé) took a risk in sequins in 2011.

Jessica Alba chose a classic strapless Gucci gown with all-over embellishment in 2012, while Rooney Mara (in Nina Ricci) and Charlize Theron (in Dior) took the plunge in dresses featuring an ultra-low neckline.

In 2013 some of the best-dressed stars wore dreamy, dramatic gowns. Jennifer Lawrence chose a belted Dior ballgown, Halle Berry went with a multicolor printed asymmetrical Atelier Versace design with sweeping train and Amy Adams wore a blush Marchesa mermaid-style gown, but you can only pick one favorite!

Naomi Watts brought the glam in her metallic Tom Ford gown, Lupita Nyong’o set the carpet on fire in her bright red Ralph Lauren Collection cape dress and Cate Blanchett stuck to old school glamour in her lace high-neck Armani Privé gown at the 2014 awards show.

These three dresses are so gorgeous, you really have to go with whatever mood you’re in — shimmery, classic or sexy — when you vote on Julianne Moore’s custom Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci gown with feathery trim, Viola Davis’ Donna Karan Atelier strapless embellished gown or Kate Hudson’s abs-baring, plunging white Atelier Versace number with silver-laced panels.

These three gowns were undoubtedly the most surprising looks of the night. Jennifer Lopez toned down the sex appeal in a caped Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown, while Brie Larson went with an unconventional abs-baring custom Calvin Klein Collection dress and Lady Gaga chose a more understated look than we were used to seeing her in with a velvet off-the-shoulder Atelier Versace gown with padded hips.

Just last year, Emma Stone shone in her celestial Valentino gown, Priyanka Chopra wowed in a gold lace Ralph Lauren Collection dress and Mandy Moore took a risk in a plunging Naeem Khan gown with flowing cape.

The 75th annual Golden Globes are presented live at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, on Sunday. The show airs at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
