The Stars You Might Not Be Looking For At The Golden Globes, But Should

It's official: Awards season, and more importantly red carpet season, is upon us.

Starting with the 2015 Golden Globes on Jan. 11, fashion-obsessed viewers will have their eyes glued to their screens waiting to not only see who will snag a coveted award, but what they'll be wearing when they do.

While we're always excited to see what Dior gown Jennifer Lawrence will show up in, there are a slew of well-addressed attendees you won't be looking for... the very fashionable underdogs, if you will.

So, in honor of Sunday's Golden Globes, we've rounded up our picks for underrated style stars to keep an eye out for. We have a feeling at least some of these folks will end up on the best-dressed list.

The "Inherent Vice" beauty -- and daughter of one of our favorite humans ever Sam Waterston -- may be newer to the red carpet circuit, but has already made a pretty serious impression on us. We're totally getting Julia Roberts in that famousValentino gown vibes from this look.
Carmen Ejogo

The beauty of Carmen's fashion prowess is that she slays without even trying -- or a least it appears that way. The few times we've seen the "Selma" actress on the red carpet, she has managed to turn heads while wearing simple, but chic, designs.
Merritt Wever

Truth be told, we're huge Merritt Wever fans. And even though her part in "Birdman" is minimal, we'll take any excuse to watch her on screen (let's not forget her 2013 Emmy's acceptance speech).
Emmy Rossum

"Shameless" is one of TV's most underrated shows, and its leading lady is a pretty underrated style star, too. We're always pleasantly surprised with how well Rossum navigates the red carpet.
Anna Chlumsky

Even though she's known for her work on HBO's "Veep," Chlumsky will always be "My Girl" to us. So whenever we see her on the red carpet, well, we've got sunshine on a cloudy day.
Tessa Thompson

This rising star knows how to take a fashion risk and knock it out of the park. The "Dear White People" actress has already been spotted in some beautiful, yet not-so-easy-to-pull-off, dresses by folks like Rodarte and Proenza Schouler, and has managed to make them look effortlessly awesome.
Nazanin Boniadi

Boniadi is a gorgeous, talented actress who got to showcase those talents more than ever on this season of "Homeland." We have a feeling her fate on the red carpet will be, well, more positive than it has been on the show.
Ruth Wilson

"The Affair" star may be busy fielding rumors about dating co-star Jake Gyllenhaal, but all we're concerned about is what she's going to wear to the Golden Globes.
Rose Byrne

Byrne is known for her wicked sense of humor more than her sartorial choices, but she certainly has a style savvy trick or two up her sleeve. We just want to know if she's going to channel her elegant character from "Annie" or go with something a bit edgier.
Uzo Adubo

Uzo Adubo has become a fixture on the red carpet circuit, giving viewers a prime opportunity to see what "Crazy Eyes" looks like in real life (hint: amazing). As another season of award shows begins, we just know there will be plenty of exciting Uzo looks to come.
Felicity Jones

We've been crushing on Felicity Jones since she starred in "Like Crazy." Now that she's up for a Golden Globe for her amazing performance in "The Theory Of Everything," she is sure to bring her A-game to the red carpet.
Rosamund Pike

Pike may have played the "cool girl" in "Gone Girl," but when it comes to style, she's way more glamorous. We have loved watching her style evolve from her days as a Bond Girl, and we can't wait to see what she shows up to the Golden Globes in.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this post misstated that Felicity Jones starred in "An Education."
