Bad Ass Babes of Hollywood

I’ve mentioned once or twice or a million times that I’m an awards show junkie. I realize that they’re silly and sometimes really boring and have little to no effect on society or my day-to-day life. But I don’t care. I like seeing people get all dressed up and sparkly and watching them cry happy tears and make heartfelt speeches. I enjoy the grand spectacle, even if some people (my husband) don’t understand it.

That said, I am also a living, breathing, woman with a shit ton of insecurities. Seeing a bunch of already beautiful women glammed up and traipsing around in dresses that cost more than what’s in my bank account can be a tiny bit depressing—especially when I’m sitting on the couch in sweatpants from college with a messy top knot and a bowl of ice cream.

Enter the Bad Ass Babes of Hollywood. These ladies took to Instagram to make sure the rest of womankind realizes that they do not wake up like that by showing us the hilarious (relatable) ways they got ready to hit the red carpet.

About to hit the red carpet & feeling confident. @goldenglobes @veephbo @karenkawahara #goldenglobes

I’m pretty sure I fell a teensy bit in love with all of these women for reminding us what’s real and what’s a carefully crafted alternate reality.

Now that I feel marginally better about myself: which dress was your favorite?!

Jen is a freelance writer and girl mom from New York. When she’s not knee-deep in glittery crafts and girl talk, you can probably find her sprawled across her couch in the middle of a Netflix marathon with dark chocolate smeared on her face. The struggle is real.
