Jennifer’s 2009 daringly low-cut gold gown was the second time she shocked the world with a risqué neckline (hello, 2000 Grammy Awards dress!) and she’s been the doyenne of double-sided tape ever since.
Olivia’s 2014 second-skin emerald green Gucci gown was her all-time favorite Golden Globes look (and ours too!). Wilde said that with the help of her stylist Karla Welch, “We showed that pregnant women can still be sexy. And there’s no need to disguise yourself in lots of layers.”
In 2011 we were blinded by Anne’s Armani Privé gown embroidered with Swarovski crystals from the front – then stunned by the ridiculously low cut of the back.
We had to do a double, then triple, then quadruple take to register that that was Drew on the red carpet in 2009 and not a ghost of Golden Globes past with her retro teased hairstyle and flared tulle ball gown.
Out of all the LBDs Jennifer has ever worn (and trust us, it’s a lot) her 2010 high-slit gown has got to be her sexiest yet.
Julia went unconventional wearing an off-the-rack Giorgio Armani menswear-inspired suit in 1990. “I loved the shape of it,” she told InStyle. “For me, this was the epitome of being dressed up.”
There’s no better way to toast your first Golden Globe nomination in 2006 than to wow the crowd in a strapless white Valentino gown tied off with a pretty, glittery bow.
Cameron’s 2003 mini dress might be the shortest outfit to ever to grace the Golden Globes carpet – but really, with legs like hers, was there any other option?
We assume attendees have to go through a security checkpoint before hitting the red carpet – but we hadn’t heard anything about a paper shredder, too.
Lupita was the breakout style star of 2014, and it all started with this unforgettable red Ralph Lauren Collection off-the-shoulder column gown with attached cape.
Post-divorce from Ryan Phillippe in 2007, Reese made her red carpet return one for the books with her sexy, strapless and bold Nina Ricci yellow cocktail dress.
Just like her character on The Nanny, Fran’s style is whimsical, wild and never, ever boring. Case in point? Her 1996 Golden Globes elegant white gown paired with a full bouquet of flowers on her headpiece.
When Emma showed up to the 2011 Golden Globes wearing a minimalist, body-skimming peach Calvin Klein Collection gown complete with new platinum hair and a golden tan, it was the moment Emma went from funny teen actress to serious style star. And it’s a look that ended up being her favorite beauty moment ever. “I didn’t even look like myself; I looked like an alien. I looked like a different person,” she said in 2011. “That’s really a nice feeling!”
This is proof that Dame Helen Mirren has been a standout on the carpet ever since 1997 (even if not for the same reasons she is today).
In 2011 Angelina broke up her all-black style streak with a bright, sparkly emerald green Atelier Versace gown that captured everyone’s attention.

One could never forget Lara’s very literal ballerina outfit (complete with a tutu and lace-up slippers) in 2003 because we’re still asking ourselves, “Did that really happen?“
Jane Fonda wore sexy side cutouts on her scarlet Versace gown in 2015 at age 77, leaving all other actresses to update their “life goals.”
We’ll never forget how gorgeous Eva’s turquoise Van Cleef & Arpels necklace looked with her Dior white gown (or the lengths it took stylist Rachel Zoe and her team to put it all together on that infamous episode of The Rachel Zoe Project).
The actress’s 2006 body-hugging Valentino gown was striking then for how well it accentuated her curves, and is striking now for how well it holds up 10 years later.
