Golden Globes 2017

Last night one of the biggest nights in Hollywood kicked off this year’s award season in grand style. The 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards, put on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and Dick Clark Productions, honored some of the best film, music and American Television.

Held at the Beverly Hill Hilton, guests were treated to an amazing dinner by Executive Chef Alberico Nunziata and Executive Pastry Chef Thomas Henzi, with drinks provided by Möet & Chandon accompanied by the comedic antics of Jimmy Fallon and his many accompanying guests including Justin Timberlake, Tina Fey and Kit Harrington. (Just check out this video).

But before we get into the night’s festivities let’s turn our attention to some of the night’s glamorous red carpet looks.

The LBD was back to dominate this year’s red carpet with many of this year’s attendants, including the Golden Globe ladies of the Year, the Stalone girls, opting for the simple shade in some truly flattering silhouettes.
