The stars come out in their shiny finery to be named best dressed at the Golden Globes

Updated: 

As well as all the award-giving that goes down, the Golden Globe awards are largely about the outfits.

And this year's ceremony - held on Sunday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles - did not disappoint, as the beautiful people of Hollywood walked the red carpet in the most fabulous ensembles.

There were a couple of themes going on this year, including strong metallics, sunshine yellow and plenty of figure-hugging dresses to show off the results of many a strict gym routine and diet.

Among our favourites were the likes of Loving actress Ruth Negga, who looked like an intergalactic superhero in a shimmering Louis Vuitton dress, and Gone Girl star Emily Ratajkowski, who showed that you can do slinky yellow fabric with cut-outs and still look classy.

Extra kudos points to the beautiful Lily Collins, who proved that - sometimes - over-the-top frothy, lacy pink dresses CAN work. If they're by Zuhair Murad and are teamed with a fierce dark red lip.

Here's our round-up of this year's best dressed, along with our new favourite star, Ruth.
