The official list of 2017 Golden Globes nominations is in, and among the red-carpet regulars (Meryl Streep, Annette Bening, Mel Gibson) there are quite a few first-time nominees peppered throughout.
Here, the seven stylish nominees we're excited to see this January as they make their first trip down the Golden Globes step-and-repeat.
Nominated for: The Edge of Seventeen
Why we're excited: Styled by Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn, the 20-year-old actress slash pop star is truly a red-carpet shape-shifter. From bold, brightly colored dresses like the J. Mendel frock she rocked at the MTV VMAs (above, right), to ethereal couture gowns like the Elie Saab number she wore to the Governor's awards (above, left), Steinfeld manages to keep us on our toes. As an homage to her angsty alter-ego in The Edge of Seventeen, Nadine, we hope to see the starlet in a youthful, yet still sophisticated number for her strut down the Golden Globes red carpet — perhaps something along the lines of the Reem Acra one-shoulder mini she wore to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's awards season dinner (above, center).
Nominated for: The Night Manager
Why we're excited: Tom Hiddleston is much more than Taylor Swift's summer fling — he's now an Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated actor who happens to wear the hell out of a tuxedo. (There was a reason Alessandro Michele chose the Englishman for his men's Gucci campaign). The six-foot-two actor isn't one for bold patterns or colors when it comes to the carpet, however his sharp looks — always tailored to perfection — give him that movie star sheen.
Nominated for: Loving
Why we're excited: Newcomer Ruth Negga, styled by Karla Welch, has already established herself as a red-carpet style star to watch. Her tendencies toward playful, bright colors and whimsical silhouettes add a refreshing splash of color to more serious red carpets. If her gowns from the Loving press tour are any indication, we expect to see the actress in a fun Prada or Gucci ensemble.
Nominated for: Moonlight
Why we're excited: The James Bond series alum seems to have adopted a few style pointers from Agent 007 himself, hitting the red carpet in impeccably tailored, sharp looks by Stella McCartney (above left), Monse (center) and Gucci (right). For this year's Golden Globes, we hope to see Harris (styled by Nola Singer) in another fierce ensemble in a daring silhouette.
Nominated for: Deadpool
Why we're excited: Unlike fellow first-time nominee Tom Hiddleston, Ryan Reynolds likes to mix things up on the red carpet. Stylist Ilaria Urbinati — who will have her hands full on Golden Globes Sunday outfitting Donald Glover, Joel Edgerton, Rami Malek, Casey Affleck and Hiddleston, in addition to Reynolds — always manages to give Reynolds a bit of an edge with subtle colors or textures (see: his green velvet double-breasted suit jacket, above right) that don't feel like they're trying too hard.
Nominated for: Rules Don't Apply
Why we're excited: Audrey Hepburn-look alike Lily Collins has played up her stirking Old Hollywood features during the press tour for Rules Don't Apply — which, coincidentally, is set in '50s Hollywood — stepping out in boldly embellished gowns (like the Elie Saab gown, above center) and luxe slip dresses in rich colors (like the Amanda Wakeley gown, above right). However, it's the impeccable styling by Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn and her gravitation towards a vampy maroon lip that have made her a red-carpet standout.
Nominated for: This Is Us
Why we're excited: Though she prefers clean lines and monochromatic ensembles, Mandy Moore's style is anything but boring. This awards season, we hope to see the actress step out in yet another complementary jewel toned gown, perhaps by Jason Wu, Jenny Packham or Prabal Gurung (who designed the marigold stunner she wore to the Emmy Awards). Fingers crossed for the return of those bouncy red carpet curls, too.
