Well thank heavens for that- just in time to pull us out of our seemingly insatiable January blues, along come the Golden Globes to delight our senses and give us some mega red carpet crushes to kick off 2015.

Major props to Girls’ Allison Williams in Armani Prive, Jenna Dewan Tatum in Emilio Pucci and Amy Poehler in Stella McCartney.
