Good things often come in pairs: Christie Nicolaides earrings or Chanel ballet flats, for example. This year, our favourite Golden Globe beauty moments were also shared between A-list besties who shunned the solo spotlight. We pulled together some of the sweetest celebrity pics of LA’s most stunning (female) power couples. Proof that getting the girls together on a Saturday night for a little pre-party preening will never go out of style.
Michelle Williams & Busy Philipps:
Aside from giving us major Dawson's Creek nostalgia, these two imparted some ridiculous best friend goals. The blondes went for understated makeup, letting the white Louis Vuitton lace (Michelle) and plunging black neckline (Busy) do all of the talking. They even managed to save clutch space by using each other as a mirror to retouch lippy. We just hope that these two carry on the tradition of being each other’s red carpet date.
Reese Witherspoon & Nicole Kidman:
Hollywood veterans Reese and Nicole positively glowed at the Globes, proving they continue to defy the biological process of ageing. Matching chokers, pink lips and metallic eyes prove these two are still queens of award season. Bonus kudos to Reese who managed to pull off the sunniest shade of lemon-yellow for the second time round.
Drew Barrymore & Kristen Wiig:
Two of our favourite funny ladies stopped for a quick red carpet snap, flashing their subtle smoky eyes and nude pouts. If we had to be stuck in an elevator with anyone, these two are probably our pick…
Sophie Turner & Maisie Williams:
On-screen sisters and real-life best friends Sophie and Maisie are all about ensuring that each other's red carpet photos are amazing, even if it means bending down in couture to fix a train. Maisie keeps her hair simple in an undone brunette updo, while Sophie went chic with sleek glossy hair and a smoky grey eye.
