As the first major awards show of the year, the Golden Globes has the honor of setting the sartorial pace for the rest of the season. And so if 2016 was all about thigh-high slits and zero-percent opacity, then, according to the Globes red carpet, 2017 is going to be all about the bare chest.
It seemed nearly every star who graced the red carpet at the 74th Golden Globes had a gown cut with a deep, deep neckline, which ranged from a sternum-exposing plunge to, astonishingly, a navel-grazing length. A few notable callouts: Kristen Bell and her square-cut Jenny Packham neckline (that looked like a shiny tux from afar), Jessica Biel's incredible stomach-skimming plunge, courtesy of Elie Saab, and Mandy Moore's Naeem Khan's deep-V.
