Not that this is a bad thing, but it was hard to find a totally sour beauty look amidst the slayage that was the 2017 Golden Globes red carpet. (There were no puzzling, Snooki-esque Bumpits this year, thank heavens.) Many stars embraced fashion-forward feminist chops, some fresh accessories, some free-form manes, some barely-there makeup, some smoky eyes and statement lips. The results were, in most cases, phenomenal. In fact, we’d like to take this opportunity to shout out a few runners-up who didn’t make it into the top nine. Zazie Beetz’s beautiful natural tresses deserve an honorable mention, as does Emily Ratajkowski’s glowing, peachy-keen makeup palette.
And while we have ambivalent feelings toward Evan Rachel Wood’s roots-heavy, abbreviated silver side swoop, we can’t take fault with her empowering red carpet proclamation. “I’ve been to the Globes six times. I’ve worn a dress every time. And I love dresses, I’m not trying to protest dresses,” stated the Westworld star, who wore an Altuzarra tux to The Beverly Hilton-based festivities. “But, I want to make sure that young girls and women know they aren’t a requirement and that you don’t have to wear one if you don’t want to. To just be yourself because your worth is more than that.” With that in mind, click through the slideshow above to see the most memorable beauty looks of the night in our humble, subjective opinion. Then go ahead and take your own risks.
