The red carpet is the best place to go for wedding dress inspiration. We do it every week and suggest you start immediately, starting with last night's 2016 Golden Globes. It's the place where trends go to emerge and though you don't necessarily want to prescribe to fads on your big day, you do want to channel the glitz and glamour of Tinseltown's most gorgeous stars at the peak of their flawlessness. Especially when it comes to your bridesmaids. Trust us, they'll thank you for taking inspiration from the likes of Jennifer Lopez and Rachel McAdams.

Color was on high for the night, with all of our favorite stylish celebs in dresses perfect for your beautiful bridesmaids. These ladies turned heads and dropped jaws in legendary gowns—Jennifer Lopez's mesmerizing Giambattista Valli chartreuse cape number for instance—and if our favorite women can channel even a portion of their charm and enchantment, the moment will be epic. Here, our favorite dresses in beautiful hues that the supporting women in your life will dazzle in while standing beside you at the altar.

Jennifer Lawrence and Dior are a match made in red carpet heaven: kind of the same way you want to feel when you see your bridesmaids in their dresses moments before walking down the aisle. Though quite clean in silhouette, it made a splash with side-baring cutouts. The revealing detail may seem sultry to some, but the placement here is a great complement for many women's body types: with a bit of a fuller skirt a gown like this will look sublime without a doubt. And if you can swing a Chopard collar necklace full of diamonds, why not?

Jennifer Lopez never disappoints on the red carpet, thus we weren't surprised at her dazzling display in Giambattista Valli. Her mustard-yellow draped cape number with a thigh-high slit is a great, on-trend dress for the women you call friends and family: especially if they're fashion-forward. Whether it's the cape, a high slit, or a modern color choice, you'll be the most liked person on Instagram that day: we guarantee it.

Do you spot a trend? We do! Your favorite women will be literal rays of sunshine, casting light and love over your day if they don yellow dresses like America Ferrera's. Her Jenny Packham gown highlighted her arms and a bit of added skin with a cleverly-placed keyhole, accented with glimmering Simon G jewels. The crystal embellishment lent the perfect amount of sparkle and her sleek ponytail is easily copied— a polished and quick way for all your bridesmaids to look refined and modern, yet get in and out of the stylist's chair in a cinch.

Malin Akerman in Reem Acra
Peplum has been a trend for a few seasons now and for good reason: it's flattering, flirty, and fun. Malin Akerman's lace Reem Acra number with the lively detail can work for a variety of shapes and sizes. And if your bridesmaids are wondering how they can wear the piece again, they can shorten the hem to a midi or knee-length and wear to their heart's content for years to come.

If you got it, flaunt it! You want all eyes on you for your big day, but you definitely want your bridesmaids to look and feel good as well. Brie Larson's gleaming gold sequin gown with a halter neckline and cutout detailing channeled Studio 54 glamour— the perfect piece for your best gals if your affair is posh and you're a lover of embellishment. Even without the sultry accents, the dress would still be a complete stunner.

Simplicity always rules and when you're wearing red, you can keep it pared-down and focus on your natural beauty. Emmy Rossum's strapless Armani Privé number in the fiery hue is a surefire way for the women you love to look flawless on your big day. The design can work in any color and with any hairstyle: channel the Shameless actress's soft waves or have them try a tousled chignon for a modern take on a classic up-do.

Her strapless blue Reem Acra gown with a plunging neckline and softly pleated skirt is perfect to accentuate your bridal party's curves or lack thereof —it can also be easily stitched up to reveal less skin for those ladies who want a bit more coverage.
