19 Incredible Vintage Golden Globe Looks
Even though we’re still obsessing over this year’s best dressed babes, we can’t help but be reminded of all the gowns to have ever graced the red carpet at the Golden Globes. From Marilyn Monroe in 1959 to Megan Fox in 2009, here are 19 of our favorite vintage Golden Globe looks.
Marilyn Monroe, 1959
In 1959, Marilyn Monroe won her first and only Golden Globe for her performance in Some Like It Hot, and obviously the OG bombshell celebrated the occasion by draping herself in fur and getting her sass on for a snap.
Sonny and Cher, 1973
Cher is the woman who taught us all to believe in life after love, but even before she was inspiring a nation with her words, she was inspiring us all with her abs. Even though her classic variety show The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour lost that night, Cher looked every inch the winner in matching separates and a full length fur coat.
Meryl Streep, 1989
Meryl Streep may not have won an award in 1989, but she sure looked every inch the 80s nominee.
Julia Roberts, 1990
Julia Roberts was only 22 when she picked up her first Golden Globe for her role in Steel Magnolias as a young southern woman with diabetes. Annie Hall, eat your heart out.
Julia Roberts, 1991
Déjà vû or what? Fast-forward one year later and Julia Roberts won her second Golden Globe for playing a hooker with a heart of gold. Keeping her menswear influence, but opting for a more feminine silhouette, Roberts looked every inch the pretty woman.
Winona Ryder and Johnny Depp, 1991
The whole “Winona Forever” thing may not have panned out, but at least we’ll always have this picture of Johnny Depp and the brunette bombshell of the 90s.
Juliette Lewis, 1994
No one even remembers why Juliette Lewis was at the 1994 Golden Globe Awards (but just in case it comes up in on trivia night, she was nominated for her role in Natural Born Killers), but no one will ever forget the Cleopatra headdress she wore in lieu of a hairstyle.
Kirsten Dunst, 1995
Nominated for her turn in Interview With A Vampire, Kirsten Dunst was only 12 years old when she attended her first Golden Globe ceremony, so we’ll do her a favor and excuse the crimped hair. Watch her talk to the press here and melt at her adorableness and poise.
The women of Friends, 1996
Back in 1996, Friends was everybody’s favorite show and stars Lisa Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox showed up looking like the boss bitches that they were.
Jennifer Lopez, 1998
Back before she was Jenny from the block, J. Lo or that hottie in the Versace dress, Jennifer Lopez was the reincarnation of Selena. She may not have been a star yet, but her body most certainly was. Some things really never do change.
Angelina Jolie, 1999
Angelina Jolie brought her brother as her date to her first Golden Globe awards and cemented her status as a red carpet icon.
Sarah Jessica Parker, 2000
2000 marked the first of three Golden Globes SJP would win as the lovable sex columnist from New York City better known as Carrie Bradshaw.
Halle Berry, 2000
Even though nobody really remembers Introducing Dorothy Dandridge, it was the role that made Halle Berry famous, elevating her from a nobody to the woman who would become a household name in one short year after landing a career-defining role in Monster’s Ball.
Hilary Swank, 2000
Hilary Swank may not have been nominated for an award in 2000, but the dress she wore was every inch the winner.
Kate Hudson, 2002
In her King Arthur-inspired eleganza, the only thing more golden than Kate Hudson in 2002 was… literally nothing.
Salma Hayek, 2003
Nominated for her turn as Frida Kahlo, Salma Hayek was a winner as soon as she stepped out on the red carpet with her figure-hugging red dress.
Anne Hathaway, 2003
Anne Hathaway won our hearts as Mia Thermopolis in The Princess Diaries, and three years later she was winning our hearts again on the red carpet. What a little babe-in-training.
Even though Beyoncé is one of the most iconic pop stars of our era, it’s easy to forget that she’s also tried her hand at other pursuits. Namely, acting. Although her Austin Powers performance will go down in history as one of B’s worst performances to date, there was nothing wrong with her 2007 red carpet appearance at the Golden Globes to honor her role in Dreamgirls.
Megan Fox, 2009
Once a fox, always a fox. Ladies and gentlemen, it doesn’t get much better than this.
