The 2019 Golden Globes Red Carpet Dresses You Need To See

Awards season is upon us, and the Golden Globes mark the first major red carpet of 2019. Hollywood's top TV and film actors are getting together to eat, drink, and celebrate their peers' onscreen accomplishments. But, it's also their first opportunity of the new year to flaunt their sartorial prowess. The best red carpet dresses at the 2019 Golden Globes are plenty glamorous (obviously), but they also offer a bit more than just sparkle and shimmer. Looking at them, you get a sense for how the wearer thinks about fashion.

Last year, many stars chose to wear black in honor of Time's Up, and while this year, actors' fashion choices were more varied, the topic is not forgotten. With a diverse range of films up for awards, including Black Panther and Crazy Rich Asians, this year's red carpet is a place where seasoned A-listers and newcomers alike have the chance to slip into designs that not only look amazing, but also tell a story.

From Laura Harrier's black and white gown, to the surprising structural shoulder on Sandra Oh's white dress, you'll find all the Golden Globes looks you need to see. Now, just make sure you have popcorn popped, Champagne (or perhaps apple cider) ready to sip on, and place your bets on who tonight's big winners will be.
