Since it combines the star power of both movies and TV, the Golden Globes are one of the best red carpet opps of the year (partially because the stars use the awards ceremony as a chance to let loose a little before the main stage at the Oscars). After a complete halt during the pandemic and a meek and mellow restart afterward, 2024 marks the return of high-octane red carpet glamour (The 2023 Gotham Awards certainly served as a foretelling omen of the good that's to come). So, before things kick off, let's get a quick refresher on the Globes' biggest red carpet highlights to date. 

Ahead, the best Golden Globes dress ever, from Charlize Theron in blush Dior Couture high-low number to Marilyn Monroe circa 1962 in a sequined Norman Norell gown.
