The Golden Globe Awards provides the first major celebrity fashion moments of the year which means there's pressure to impress. Last year's red carpet was awash with attendees wearing black in honor of Time's Up. This year, for the 76th Golden Globe Awards, guests were showing their support for the movement by way of bracelets instead, which means color was infused back into the award show which celebrities embraced.
Lupita Nyong'o wore a fun blue-violet number reminiscent of the '20s, and Gemma Chan impressed us with her daring teal gown. The real stunner, though, was Lady Gaga who matched her hair to her lavender gown.
Outside of color, there were also some risky stylistic choices that deserve our applause. Joanna Newsom wore her heart on her chest in a cute Rodarte dress, while Janelle Monáe pulled off a hard-to-pull-off Chanel number.
Ahead, check out our favorite standout looks from the night.
When Lady Gaga commits to a look, she goes all in. Her lavender custom Valentino dress paid subtle homage to Judy Garland in the 1954 version of A Star Is Born. The hair though we're pretty sure was all Gaga.

We're suckers for a good chain mail moment, and this one from Saoirse Ronan and Gucci is a sophisticated favorite.
Janelle Monáe already emits a glow on her own, but it was amped up tonight in this golden Chanel number.
All of the sartorial and emoji hearts for Joanna Newsom's Rodarte dress.
Regina King is ready for war (or a four-hour long award show) in this very fitted suit of armor courtesy of Alberta Ferretti.
Picking a gown in the same color as the carpet is always tricky, but Lili Reinhart does a good job standing out in Khyeli.
We love that Laura Harrier loved this unique Louis Vuitton pairing made up of a peplum bust and sequin skirt.
