The 77th Golden Globes are almost upon us, taking the stage at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles this upcoming Monday (5:00 am UAE time). This year’s show will be hosted by English comedian Ricky Gervais who is taking the baton from Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg. Since its first ceremony in 1944, the annual awards show has brought together some of Hollywood’s most beautiful faces sporting bold and playful gowns on the red carpet.
While we anticipate what this year’s red carpet will bring, Vogue.me recounts the history of the Golden Globes red carpet thus far in iconic dresses that have made a statement. From the sequinned Norman Norell gown worn by Marilyn Monroe in 1962, just months before her untimely death, to when Lupita Nyong’o made her Golden Globes debut in Ralph Lauren; these dresses are like a social barometer of the times.
