Roll out the red-carpet fashion: It’s the Golden Globes!

As we ready for the whirlwind arrival of  awards season (I can just hear Stanley Tucci, in “The Devil Wears Prada,” shouting “Gird your loins!”; can’t you?), it seemed a good time to look back on some 2014 red-carpet favorites. Join me Sunday evening, Jan. 11, on seattletimes.com to chat about gowns, speeches and all things Golden Globes.

The eventual Academy Award winner for best supporting actress (“12 Years a Slave”), Lupita Nyong’o, did a bang-up job on the red carpet all season. The blue Prada she wore to the Oscars got a lot of attention, but this Ralph Lauren number in vivid red, worn to the Globes last year, was all the more dazzling for being understated. (Except for that fabulous cape, which seems to indicate some secret superpower.)

Prints are still a rarity on the red carpet; this lovely one, a Monique Lhuillier gown worn by model Chrissy Teigen at the Oscars, just looks happy. And pockets too!

If Lady Mary Crawley were teleported to the current day and got invited to the Golden Globes (sure, it could happen), you know that this sparkly Oscar de la Renta is exactly what she would wear. Well done, Michelle Dockery.

As a reminder that the red carpet is for all ages, here’s June Squibb (nominated for “Nebraska”), looking smashing at the Oscars in an emerald-green ensemble by Tadashi Shoji.

Black lace was everywhere in 2014, but never prettier (or more interesting) than in this wonderfully gothic Armani Privé gown, worn by Cate Blanchett to the Golden Globes.

OK, so technically this wasn’t an awards show (it’s the red carpet of the Met Gala), but this Charles James-influenced Zac Posen gown, worn by model Liu Wen, was one of my favorites of the year. How glorious is that color? And the skirt?

Tina Fey’s telling Amy Poehler here, “And I said I wanted my hair to be THIS BIG” — right? This picture’s not so much for the dresses — though both ladies look great — but as a cheery reminder that Tina and Amy, The Best Awards Show Hosts Ever, return to host the Globes at 5 p.m. Sunday on NBC, gowns and all. See you then.
