A largely virtual red carpet didn’t stop celebrities from showing off their fashion choices at this year’s Golden Globes.

On Sunday, the delayed awards season kicked off with the 78th annual Globes, with nominees and other notable names appearing via Zoom or Instagram dressed in black tie.

While we didn’t expect to see the same amount of gowns and tuxedos at this year’s awards, the celebs who did turn out in red carpet outfits did not disappoint.

From Elle Fanning to Margot Robbie, these are the best-dressed attendees at this year’s Golden Globes.
