Award show season is here, and with it, a fresh batch of star-studded looks straight from the red carpet. Last night’s Golden Globe Awards ushered in a sea of apple-red, intricate black lace, and body-skimming gowns, as well as a noticeable return to classic Hollywood beauty “moves.” Think dramatic waves to rival equally dramatic eyes, matte red lips, and enviable haircuts. Our favorite looks from the evening, listed below, are simply meant to inspire our own hair/styling routines — or if you’re feeling a bit gutsy (and are currently sporting long hair), it might just be time to try the “the chop” á la Sienna Miller. Just sayin’.
When we think Old Hollywood glamour-turned-modern day beauty, Amy Adams tops our list. For the Globes, makeup artist Stephen Sollitto chose a subtle champagne-meets-copper eye to complement her soft waves and ice blue Atelier Versace gown.

Love her or hate her, she knows how to make her mark. This time, it’s in cotton-candy pink with a low-key twist. Unlike her more iconic pink moment — in pale pink Ralph Lauren at the 1999 Oscars — Paltrow’s Michael Kors gown was a sportier version of sexy, a silhouette that her stylist David Babaii highlighted with ’70s hair: straight from the crown to the jawline, and then perfectly undone, loose curls to finish.

Davis rarely makes the wrong move on the red carpet, case in point. Not only was her ruby-tinged Donna Karan gown a source of bold color choice, her eyes and lips also proved to be statement-worthy. The juxtaposition of shimmer-y mauve eyeshadow and classic red lip resulted in one seriously glamorous look.

This British beauty tied for Best Dressed and Best Haircut of the night — at least in our books. If ever there were real-time motivation to go for “the chop,” this would be it. Her barely-there makeup, courtesy of makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury, allowed us to focus on the gorgeous embellishments of her Miu Miu gown and, of course, that ridiculously awesome bedhead bob.

Stone knows how to wear dramatic looks with ease. Chanel makeup artist Rachel Goodwin not only emphasized the redhead’s feline eyes with a smokey cat eye, she also paired it with a soft berry-hued lip and tousled waves. It’s one-part dressed up, one-part just-woke-up, and we love it.
