It’s time to bring out the red carpet: awards season is back in full swing. The perfect time to recognize both Hollywood’s most talented and best-dressed, we put together a list of fool-proof style tips, as told by 10 household names at the 73rd Golden Globe Awards.

THE FAIL-SAFE

Could it be time to bid the little black dress goodbye? Coming in white-hot is the little white gown, a chic, understated answer to every social function. Follow in the straightforward footsteps of Danish Girl actress Alicia Vikander, bedecked in a belted Louis Vuitton number, or channel Laverne Cox’s higher-impact Elizabeth Kennedy floor-skimmer.

With the fashion sphere constantly evolving, perhaps it’s time we pick up speed. Stepping out of character and welcoming change of the sartorial sort is always refreshing, both to wearer and beholder. Take cues from monochrome loyalist Rooney Mara’s pale pink Alexander McQueen frock or bombshell Amber Heard’s surprisingly modest Gucci Couture gown. After all, nothing good ever comes out of comfort zones.

Everyone loves a little old-world charm. Perfectly executed in color or a lack of it, the Golden Globes red carpet served up two ways of sporting Gatsby-worthy glamour: Follow in Cate Blanchett’s Twenties-inspired pastel pink example, or learn from the velvet Atelier Versace-clad Mother Monster herself.

THE PLUNGE

The only kind of V-neck acceptable on red carpet ground, the plunge-neck has been a well-loved mainstay among female celebrities, and with good reason. Who are we to say no to a timeless, torso-lengthening cut? Draw some decolletage-baring inspiration from Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s midnight blue Zuhair Murad Couture gown and Kirsten Dunst’s sultry Valentino number.

Jane Fonda and Zendaya may very well have rendered the golden ratio into a height-boosting sartorial reality. End a sleek hemline right above the floor and raise the volume around the torso like Jane Fonda, or take on a triple-tiered silhouette like Zendaya’s Marchesa stunner: either will lend a few extra inches to a petite frame.
