Our best-dressed list from this year’s Golden Globe Awards ceremony features Reese Witherspoon in a dazzling Calvin Klein gown, Lena Dunham in scarlet Zac Posen and Kate Hudson in head-turning. What you haven’t seen yet is what the stars were up to before, during and after the show — but their Instagrams tell all.

Before stepping out, @kevinhart4real showed us that he and his fiancé Eniko Parrish would top the best-dressed couples list: ‘Headed to the “Golden Globes” #ComplementingEachOthersFly #Classy #WeddingRinger #HittingTheatersIn5Days #GoldenGlobes’.Kevin Hart Instagram Golden Globes 2015

After stunning us with her Ralph Lauren dress last year, you may be on the fence about @lupitanyongo’s purple ombre dress from this year’s ceremony. There are no doubts about her beauty look, though: ‘Sneak peek @lancomeusa @goldenglobes’.

#sneakpeek @lancomeusa. @goldenglobes.
