We Compared Golden Globe Nominees' Oldest And Newest Red Carpet Looks

Who's changed -- and who hasn't? This is the fashion retrospective we need before the big night.

The Golden Globe awards are all about celebrating the best of film and TV, but for most of us it's all about one thing and that's fashion.

In the lead up to the 2019 event, we dug into the archives to uncover some of this year's nominees' very first red carpet outfits and compared them with their most recent looks. Trends might come and go, but starpower is always in fashion.

Charlize Theron

Nominated for: Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy -- Tully.

For her Globes debut in 1999 Theron stepped out in a backless sequinned sheath -- in 2012 she was princess-like in a blush confection by Dior.

Amy Adams

Nominated for: Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture -- Vice.

Adams slipped into an Oscar de la Renta gown for her first trip down the Globes red carpet in 2009, and most recently strolled the Globes red carpet in 2017 wearing a sequinned Tom Ford number.

Melissa McCarthy

Nominated for: Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama -- Can You Ever Forgive Me?

McCarthy rocked an emerald green Badgley Mischka number for her first Globes in 2012 -- she even presented an award -- but chose a slinky '70s-inspired gown from her own fashion line four years later.

Julia Roberts

Nominated for: Best Actress in a TV Series, Drama -- Homecoming.

Roberts kicked off her Globes appearances in an iconic menswear-inspired get up in 1990 and continued the theme in 2014 with a Dolce & Gabbana shirt-under-strapless-dress look.

Emma Stone

Nominated for: Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture -- The Favourite.

A blonde Stone was peachy-keen in Calvin Klein at her first Globes in 2011 -- she was nominated for Easy A. Seven years later the actor walked the red carpet in Louis Vuitton with tennis legend Billie Jean King. Both were in black in honor of the Time's Up movement.

Nicole Kidman

Nominated for: Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama -- Destroyer.

The Aussie actor -- decked out in all black -- was on the arm of then-husband Tom Cruise for her very first Globes in 1992. Current beau Keith Urban escorted a Givenchy-wearing Kidman to the awards in 2018.

Regina King

Nominated for: Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture -- If Beale Street Could Talk

This year's double nominee King opted for a silver sheath back in 2005 when she attended as part of the cast of the nominated film, Ray, and stuck with the glittery hue (this time courtesy designer Romona Keveza) for her appearance in 2017.

Penelope Cruz

Nominated for: Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Limited-Series, or TV Movie -- The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.

Cruz clearly likes to make a statement in monochromatic outfits -- take her snow-white tulle dress in 2000 for example. The four-time nominee stunned in a black lacy Ralph & Russo creation 18 years later.

Keri Russell

Nominated for: Best Actress in a TV Series, Drama -- The Americans.

For her Globes debut in 1999, a 23-year-old Russell opted for a shiny orange bandana top and platform flip-flops. In 2017 she went boho-chic in a tiered leopard-print J. Mendel gown.

Laura Dern

Nominated for: Best Actress in a Limited-Series or TV Movie -- The Tale.

Decades before she took home an award for Big Little Lies in 2018 -- she wore Armani Privé btw -- a fresh-faced Dern already had her hands on a statue thanks to her role as Miss Golden Globe in 1982.

Emily Blunt

Nominated for: Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy -- Mary Poppins Returns.

Back in 2007, the Brit actor stole the spotlight -- and took home a statue -- in a Hervé Léger bandage dress. The new Ms Poppins returned to the red carpet in 2015 in a cut-out Michael Kors Collection gown.
