As much as the Golden Globes are about honouring the best and brightest in television and film, they're also about fashion.

Celebrities were decked out in style Sunday night, strutting their stuff on the red carpet ahead of the 73rd annual Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.

Here's a look at some of the glamorous garments on display. 

Bursting with colour ...

Several stars brightened up the red carpet, flaunting some very colourful clothing.
