  • Newcomers

    Breakout star Timothee Chalamet, who is nominated for his lead role in Call Me by Your Name (also nominated for best motion picture - drama), will be hitting the Golden Globes red carpet for the first time, and there's no doubt he will dress to impress. Chalamet has been favoring velvet on the step-and-repeat lately (look no further than his recent burgundy velvet Berluti suit), so don't be surprised if he steals the show with another lush look.

    Fellow rising star Hong Chau, who is nominated for her supporting role in Downsizing, will also make her debut at the Jan. 7 awards show. Styled by Erica Cloud, Chau tends to lean toward more romantic silhouettes, like the Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini lace dress she wore to this year's Governors Awards and the beaded high-collar Elie Saab gown chosen for the Venice Film Festival.

    Certainly not a newcomer to the red carpet (or the industry for that matter), Zendaya still has much to celebrate with this year's Globes nominations. The Greatest Showman, in which Zendaya stars as trapeze artist Anne Wheeler, is up for best motion picture - musical or comedy, marking this as her first project that's been nominated at the Globes. A fashion chameleon, Zendaya always brings sartorial flair to any red carpet.

  • Pros

    Issa Rae has scored another Golden Globe nomination for her starring role on HBO's Insecure after receiving a mention for the first time last year. Never one to shy away from bold colors or abstract patterns, Rae is fearless on the red carpet. Stylist Jason Rembert has recently helped the actress stand out in a mustard yellow A.L.C. dress, colorful sequin DVF dress and romantic floral Prabal Gurung look.

    Having stepped out in support of The Wolf of Wall Street (2013), Margot Robbie knows a thing or two about campaigning during awards season. This time around, the Australian actress will be promoting I, Tonya, in which she stars as disgraced ice skater Tonya Harding, a role that has earned Robbie her first Golden Globe nomination under the category of best performance by an actress in a motion picture - musical or comedy. Styled by Kate Young, Robbie will surely shine on the step and repeat.

    Armie Hammer, who oreviously made the rounds during award season for The Social Network (2010), will return to the Globes with a nomination for his role in Call Me by Your Name. The actor always cleans up nicely for the red carpet, whether it's in a suede double-breasted Ralph Lauren suit or a periwinkle blue Paul Smith suit with a floral tee. With stylist Ilaria Urbinati, Hammer is bound to bring his fashion A-game.

  • Legends

    Mary J. Blige has been recognized in not in one but two categories at the Globes: She's nominated for her supporting role in Mudbound as well as for best original song (along with Raphael Saadiq and Taura Stinson) for the film's "Mighty River." Blige has previously been nominated for best original song for "The Living Proof" from the 2011 film The Help. (Only Barbra Streisand has won simultaneously in both those categories for the 1976 film A Star Is Born.) With stylist Law Roach by her side, Blige will no doubt rule the Globes' red carpet (and beyond).

    Meryl Streep, an awards-season veteran, is back for another round with her best actress nomination for The Post. The historical drama is also nominated under several other categories, including best actor (Tom Hanks), best director (Steven Spielberg), best screenplay (Liz Hannah and Josh Singer), best original score (John Williams) and best motion picture - drama. Stylist Michaela Erlanger is no doubt already finding an elegant ensemble for Streep's big night. (Let's hope there's no dress debacle like last time.)

    Another awards-season old hand is none other than Helen Mirren, who is nominated for her lead role in The Leisure Seeker. There's no look the dame can't pull off, so we're excited to see what she'll bring to the awards ceremony.
