1. Saoirse Ro­nan – She made her awards sea­son de­but in 2008, when she was nom­i­nated for a Golden Globe for Atone­ment. Fast-for­ward eight years and the 21year-old Ir­ish Amer­i­can is up for a best ac­tress award in the drama cat­e­gory for Brook­lyn. For the pre­miere of the film in Los An­ge­les in Oc­to­ber, she rocked this white Stella McCart­ney jump­suit.

2. Rooney Mara – Carol is her sec­ond Golden Globe nom­i­na­tion. She was pre­vi­ously nom­i­nated for the Hol­ly­wood adap­ta­tion of Stieg Lars­son’s The Girl with the Dragon Tat­too. Mara goes up against her cos­tar, style maven Cate Blanchett, so she may need to up her game in the glam­our stakes. For the film’s pre­miere, she wore Alexan­der McQueen ruf­fles.

3. Cate Blanchett - An awards sea­son vet­eran who has never made a bad fash­ion choice, she is nom­i­nated for her ninth Golden Globe for Carol. She has won three – for her roles in Blue Jas­mine, I’m Not There and El­iz­a­beth. At the film’s pre­miere in Cannes, she made a state­ment in Bri­tish de­signer Giles Dea­con’s galaxy dress.

4. Ali­cia Vikan­der – For her awards sea­son de­but Vikan­der gets two nom­i­na­tions – as best ac­tress for The Dan­ish Girl and best sup­port­ing ac­tress for Ex Machina. The Swedish ac­tress was Bafta’s Ris­ing Star award win­ner in 2013 af­ter roles in Anna Karen­ina and A Royal Af­fair. She wore ev­er­green Louis Vuit­ton to The Dan­ish Girl’s Lon­don pre­miere and is dat­ing fel­low nominee Michael Fass­ben­der.

5. Brie Lar­son – A new­comer to the awards cir­cuit, Lar­son is nom­i­nated for her role in Room, a film about a woman and her five-yearold child liv­ing in a room that she has trans­formed into a whole world. She failed the style test at the film’s pre­miere in Toronto, sport­ing an 80sin­spired mo­hawk and an off-the-shoul­der dress – a mis­match in­deed.

6. Jen­nifer Lawrence – One of the most ex­cit­ing ac­tresses around, Lawrence is an­other star who never puts a style foot wrong. Of course, it helps that, as a face of Miss Dior, the de­sign house throws frocks at her. The 25-year-old is al­ready an Os­car and Globe win­ner. This is her fourth nom­i­na­tion – for the fam­ily saga Joy.

7. Melissa McCarthy – Big on fight­ing back at body shamers in Hol­ly­wood, McCarthy’s look is one most of us reg­u­lar women could prob­a­bly wear to a movie our­selves. McCarthy, who was nom­i­nated in 2012 for an Os­car for Brides­maids, makes her Golden Globe nominee de­but for Spy. At the film’s pre­miere, she wore one of her own de­signs from her Melissa McCarthy Seven7 line.

8. Mag­gie Smith – No one would dare ques­tion the style cre­den­tials of Down­ton Abbey’s Dowa­ger Count­ess, as she aptly puts it her­self: “Alas, I am be­yond im­pro­pri­ety.” At 81, Smith notches up her 12th Golden Globe nom­i­na­tion for The Lady in the Van.

9. Amy Schumer – The star of one of the best come­dies of the year, Train­wreck, is also one of the fun­ni­est and clever­est writ­ers in Hol­ly­wood. She is the brains be­hind the TV se­ries Girls and wrote Train­wreck. This is her first Golden Globe nom­i­na­tion. Alas, her Dion Lee lit­tle black dress had a lit­tle too lit­tle around the boobs, so she should take a cue from bestie Lawrence and swap Dion for Dior.

10. Lily Tom­lin – An­other dou­ble nominee, Tom­lin is nom­i­nated for her lead­ing roles in the film Grandma and in the TV se­ries Grace and Frankie. She has been nom­i­nated for a Globe seven times, span­ning four decades, though this dou­ble nom­i­na­tion is the first since the turn of the cen­tury. At 76, she is not even the old­est ac­tress in her cat­e­gory.
