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. 

Keep scrolling for all of the best red carpet beauty moments from 2021's virtual Golden Globes. Cheers!

There's so much good going on here. For InStyle's beloved #InStyleElevator, Condor's makeup artist, Melissa Hernandez, gave the actress a saturated dose of bubblegum-pink lip gloss, and the cat eye of all cat eyes. (We're also loving this half-up hairstyle!)
