New year, new awards show season.
While 2016 was chock-full of praise-worthy red carpet moments, we were ready for a fresh start in 2017. Being that the first awards ceremony of the year is tonight’s Golden Globes, we had a good feeling we’d be off to a strong start.
And strong it was. From fairy-tale princess gowns to a slew of bold and vibrant yellows (a sign of hope for a bright year ahead?) and, of course, an epic pantsuit, tonight’s looks were as captivating as the ceremony itself.
We rounded up 17 looks worthy of their very own award. Click through the gallery below to check out our picks.

Ruth Negga’s Louis Vuitton stunner was pure magic.
