Awards season is upon us, with proceedings kicking off at the Golden Globes tomorrow. This will set the tone for the red carpets of 2020, showing us how experimental celebrities will go and what trends will reign supreme. Before we get a glimpse at what celebs will be wearing this year, let’s take a look back at fashion from the past five years – you might be surprised by how much style has evolved.

2015

Nowadays, we’ve become so used to seeing famous faces take risks on the red carpet, but this hasn’t always been the case. While celebs looked good at the 2015 Golden Globes, you can’t deny sartorial decisions were a lot safer. Take Gwyneth Paltrow, who kept things classic and modern in a bright pink Michael Kors gown…

…or Reese Witherspoon, who went for the red carpet staple of sparkles in a metallic Calvin Klein dress.

One of the most interesting outfits came from Naomi Watts – purely for her color choice. She wore a bright yellow strapless gown by Gucci, elevated to something even more major with an iconic Bvlgari snake necklace.

The following year was pretty much a continuation of the trends we saw in 2015. Kate Bosworth was pretty in pink in a sparkly Dolce & Gabbana gown…

…and Brie Larson also went for glitter in a Calvin Klein halterneck dress. Her fashion choices basically predicted what would happen on the night as Larson was awarded the best actress gong for her role in Room, receiving a trophy that looked suspiciously like her dress.

Jennifer Lopez provided a bright pop of color in a yellow, semi-caped gown. She’s nominated at this year’s Golden Globes for her role in Hustlers, so we can only imagine how hard she’s going to bring it on the red carpet.

2017

2017 had one leading theme: sparkles (and lots of them). Sofia Vergara and Priyanka Chopra basically matched in gold, form-fitting dresses…

A post shared by Tracee Ellis Ross (@traceeellisross) on

Tracee Ellis Ross went down the silver route in a Zuhair Murad column strapless gown. It was made more modern than some of the princess dresses that we’re used to seeing on the red carpet by cutting short just above the ankles.

2018

2018 was a particularly important year for fashion on the red carpet as it was used as a political statement. The Golden Globes saw a ‘blackout’, meaning the majority of stars wore all-black in support of the Time’s Up movement against sexual harassment in Hollywood.

In a tweet after the event, Reese Witherspoon remembered the night “when we stood together in solidarity to fight for equality, parity, safety and inclusion”.

One of our favorite looks came from Zoë Kravitz, who accessorized her elegant Saint Laurent dress with statement emerald earrings and a matching ring.

A post shared by Timothée Chalamet (@tchalamet) on

Last year’s Golden Globes saw a definite move towards more experimental and interesting fashion choices. Timothée Chalamet set the tone for the year in a sparkly Louis Vuitton harness, showing how menswear wasn’t going to stick to boring suits and ties any longer. Since then, the actor has proven himself a veritable style icon and has been paving the way for androgynous dressing.

Lady Gaga shut down the red carpet in a periwinkle-blue Valentino gown with an extra long train. Voluminous, OTT dresses like this were everywhere in 2019, so we can only wonder if dresses are going to get bigger in 2020 or take a complete U-turn and become much more pared back.

The classics didn’t completely leave the red carpet in 2019. Sometimes, simple is best – as seen on Regina King sporting this sleek, strapless Alberta Ferretti gown in metallic pink.
