Golden Globes Red Carpet Photos 2017: Women in tuxes, silver sequin gowns and more

The 2017 Golden Globes, the first major award show to be held this year, kicked off with a bang as stars descended upon the red carpet at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California.

Everyone from Natalie Portman (wearing Prada) to Kerry Washington (wearing Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda, the first time the brand's couture collection has been worn on a runway, according to Washington) made it out to find out whether Annette Bening could edge out Emma Stone for best actress in a motion picture, comedy or musical and to see if Donald Glover could pick up his first win for best actor in a TV musical or comedy for the critically acclaimed series Atlanta.

The best dressed lists that will emerge in the coming hours will be robust. Here is a quick overview of some of our early favorites:

This year also saw a few noticeable red carpet themes emerge, including tuxes for women (not a red carpet first) and a surplus of silver sequin gowns.

Take a look at some of our highlights below.

Women slayed the tux game.

Tuxes were a huge trend on this year's red carpet. "I love dresses; I'm not trying to protest dresses," Evan Rachel Wood told Ryan Seacrest on the carpet. "But I want young girls and women to know that they aren't a requirement. And that you don't have to wear one if you don't want to. Just be yourself, because your worth is more than that. So I said this year I'm going [as an] homage to Marlena Dietrich and Victor Victoria and David Bowie, 'cause it's his birthday."
