No need to watch the show! Social media provided lots of photos, video clips and chatter about the hairstyles, makeup and fashions!

I hung out on Twitter and chatted with fellow Golden Globe fashion fans, live.

Watch the segment. Discuss the panels choices. And did you love the white long gloves that Amal Clooney? I did!
