Second to (maybe) only the Oscars, the 2016 Golden Globes dresses are the most anticipated of the non-stop glitz and glam that is awards season. The Globes red carpet, after all, makes room for just about everyone in entertainment — from television to movies to everything in between. Even if you do rank the Academy Awards carpet as number one for fashion, you still have to appreciate an event that allows for both Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence to be nominated and, just maybe, wear the same gown. A girl can dream.
Lawrence and Schumer weren't the only stars with potential to marvel at the 2016 Globes, though. With the always-the-most-stylish-in-the-room Cate Blanchett nominated for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama, Melissa McCarthy nominated for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical, and Leonardo Dicaprio nominated for Best Actor in a Drama (I mean, is anyone really surprised by this anymore?), the 2016 Golden Globes red carpet promised to be flat-out magical on a hundred different levels. And between Jennifer Lopez, Laverne Cox, and the Game Of Thrones cast, it did not disappoint. Here are all the looks from the 2016 Golden Globes; prepare to have serious closet-envy.
