These Golden Globes Looks Prove Red Carpet Beauty Is Back and Better Than Ever

While there won't be a traditional red carpet at this year's Golden Globes ceremony, the award show's trademark glitz and glamour will remain steadfast, as always. Typically, we'd watch our favorite film and television stars spill out of their limousines decked out in jewels and jaw-dropping designer gowns, and 2021 won't be that different—except, of course, that this year's nominees will show off their head-turning fashion and beauty looks from all around the world and via the virtual safety of online attendance. 

If last fall's virtual Emmys ceremony was any indication, we'd bet 100 bottles of celebratory bubbly that 2021's crop of Golden Globes attendees and nominees will still go all-out to serve 10/10 hair and makeup looks this year. Below, we're paying tribute. Keep scrolling for all of the best red carpet beauty moments from 2021's virtual Golden Globes. Cheers!
