What really goes into a Golden Globes dress?

Intention, a whole lot of work and even, sometimes, first-time luck! While the typical process goes something like this: stylist pulls borrowed options then celeb goes through a few rounds of fittings until the perfect dress is found or stylist works with specific designer to create a custom look for celeb—the truth is every journey is different. There are obstacles—like when Eva Mendes' white Dior gown was sent to the wrong location. There are nerves—like when Emma Watson's stylist put a bright red dress over cigarette pants at one of Hollywood's most formal events. And there is so much artistry behind a single dress that its story deserves to be told—like how Ruth Negga's fashion-forward suit of armor was sewn by hand and almost took 120 hours to create. 

Of course, there are more hilarious stories, like how Naomie Harris had to lay down in a car for over an hour to not wrinkle her dress or how Meryl Streep wore her wedding dress to accept her first Golden Globe, only to have it soaked with breast milk in the end. But to read more about the most interesting stories behind some of the most famous Golden Globes looks of all time, keep scrolling.
