Jen in a sexy power suit and Brad with frosted hair and tinted shades? Ahhh, the early 2000s. How glorious they were.

We're more interested in the fact that Coors Light sponsored a Golden Globes party than in Katie's little black dress.

Side-eying hard, even back then.

It looks like a slip that goes under a dress, but we're not complaining.

Mile-high beehive!

Reese's hair is very Elle Woods, no?

Oh, my. It's fine to show that much skin because she has a flower on her dress. That's an unspoken rule of the red carpet.

Look at baby Jax! He is definitely too cool for school with that cigarette in his hand.

This photo of Carrie and Big makes our heart hurt and soar at the same time.

24. Portia De Rossi

Before she became Mrs. Ellen DeGeneres, Portia apparently was all about about beaded dresses that kind of looked like something a mermaid would wear when she got legs and tried to live a new life on land.

25. Halle Berry

Is that a lace tablecloth she's carrying?

28. Hugh Grant and Elizabeth Hurley

Elizabeth looks great, but why does her dress immediately make us thing of Limeade? Or Ninja Turtles?
