Maggie Gyllenhaal has been known to compare the way she dresses to how she decorates at home. After seeing her drop-dead gorgeous, geo-patterned Golden Globes gown, we're thinking we need to arrange a home tour ASAP.

While walking the Globes red carpet, Gyllenhaal's gold and black Marc Jacobs gown was a total head-turner. Last night in New York, the actress caught up with InStyle at the grand opening of Vandal, a new TAO Group restaurant, to chat about how the look came together.

"You know, I had no reason to go to the Globes this year, but then they asked me to go at the last-minute and I had such a good time last year. And so, I was like 'Yeah! Ok, let's go,'" Gyllenhaal told InStyle.

The process of picking her dress in a hurry was surprisingly easy, the actress said. With the help of her stylist, Erin Walsh, the look came together in no time at all.

"To find the dress, we tried on like five dresses and we just didn’t make a big deal out of it," Gyllenhaal told InStyle. "Then, my girlfriend, a really good friend of mine, did my makeup. And then, a guy I’ve never met before did my hair and he also was great! It was really easygoing and I really rolled with everything."

Sometimes, the best looks come together effortlessly, as was proven here. InStyle's Fashion News Director Eric Wilson also applauded the actress's red carpet-worthy style by including Gyllenhaal in his "10 Best Dressed at the 2016 Golden Globes," a much deserved honor.

"A case for taking chances on graphic prints and treatments, Gyllenhaal rolled the dice and came up a winner," Wilson wrote. And, we couldn't agree more.
