The Golden Globes is where many of the year's big fashion trends are set.

For the Styled Side, Michelle Dalton Tyree from Fashion Trends Daily assesses which looks will make an impact throughout 2017.

Pantsuit Nation

I predicted that we were going to see more pantsuits on the red carpet, and we saw a lot more.

We were watching out for Evan Rachel Wood, nominated for her role as Delores in Westworld. She's known for making bold fashion statements.

Her pantsuit was both androgynous and feminine. It was a custom tuxedo suit by Altuzarra with a crisp pussy bow blouse and her hair was in a very sleek, neat boyish style.

Pantsuits seem to always enjoy big moments every few years on the red carpet, but last year was a big year for them.

Of course, a lot of people want to thank Hillary for this. According to one stat, "pantsuit" searches online saw a nearly 500 percent increase last year.

We did see a lot of velvet ones for the holiday, but now that it's been on the red carpet, not just the runway, we're going to see even more of these in stores.

Heavy Metal, and Cold is Hot

Metallics shone, last night. It was a positively molten red carpet.

Ruth Negga, currently on the cover of Vogue, wore a stunning Louis Vuitton metallic gown with short sleeves that zipped down the front and looked like liquid metal.

Another trend to watch for is the Cold Shoulder. It's where the shoulders of a garment are cut out, leaving your bare shoulder exposed.

Some were more successful than others. Sophia Vergara, for example, looked great in a gold Zuhair Murad.

And the "color of the night" award goes to yellow.

We saw it on a few stars, most notably Viola Davis in a yellow, sequin Michael Kors gown. 

Hair of Sophistication

Facial hair was the big trend of the night, with stars Casey Affleck, Chris Pine, and both Ryans – Gosling and Reynolds – letting their beards hang out.

Hilariously, Mad Men star Jon Hamm mentioned on stage that it was the night of the "Beard Parade"

What NOT to wear...

So there was that Carrie Underwood pink dress with ruffles on the bodice and neckline. Many people likened it to buttercream frosting, and one person on Twitter asked if her dress was from Magnolia Bakery.

Let's just say it really ruffled people's feathers.

And watch for these three women on screen

There was another first last night: three Miss Golden Globes.

Since 1963, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association chooses the daughter or son of a celebrity to assist with the show and escort nominees on stage. Miss Golden Globe often turns out to be the next young Hollywood ingénue.

This year, Sylvester Stallone's children Sistine, Sophia and Scarlet all presided over the title.

I was at the Miss Golden Globe luncheon last week and Scarlet said that her father helped devise a training plan for her – like the Rocky of fashion – to be up to snuff. He had her train in heels every day so she could get comfortable wearing them on stage.
