We know the true purpose of award season is to celebrate the best in film and TV, but as beauty editors, we can’t help but think it serves another purpose—that is, providing enough hair and makeup inspiration to last us an entire year. While we’ve already witnessed some stunning looks from the Emmys and the American Music Awards, we consider the Golden Globes to be the real kickoff to award season. After all, it’s the first show of the New Year and, in a sense, the one that dictates the hair and makeup trends for all others that follow.
This year’s Golden Globes are a sight to behold since some of the buzziest movies and TV shows are nominated—think The White Lotus, The Crown, Wednesday, Babylon, Elvis, and Top Gun: Maverick… I could go on. That means the equally buzzy (and stylish) celebs that star in them are walking the red carpet. So without further ado, keep scrolling to see the 18 most jaw-dropping beauty looks from the 2023 Golden Globes.
