Lea Michele never fails to impress on the red carpet. For that, we can thank Estee Stanley (pictured, below), Michele's expert stylist who has an impeccable eye for swoon-worthy styles. While Stanley spent the day of the 72nd Annual Golden Globes Awards dressing Lea for the red carpet, her fashion choices have also landed on the likes of Jessica Biel, Lily Aldridge, Salma Hayek , and many more over the years.

"These were my choices for the dress that we chose. I felt gold mixed with the red Emanuel Ungaro dress and would keep it cool and sexy."

Lea kept her hair simple and chic for the night. An easy, elegant, pulled-back style was all she needed to compliment her red-hot gown.

"This dress was perfection on her body. Lea has never worn Ungaro before and this was so Grecian-meets-disco."

"I knew that these Lorraine Schwartz earrings were the winner when I saw them. For her bag, I wanted to keep it the same tone as the jewels."
