Kate Hudson, Kate Bosworth and Lea Michele were among the stars who gave fans a peek inside their glamorous red carpet preparations, sharing pictures of themselves sprucing up for the big night.

Kate Bosworth looked relaxed as she prepared to walk the red carpet with her husband Michael Polish, sharing a black-and-white portrait of herself in a white robe with her hair tied back into a top knot. "In process…@patidubroff @goldenglobes (photo by @michael.polish)", she wrote.
