The Bigger the Sleeves, the Better the Dress: The Poufiest Trend at the 2020 Golden Globes

One of the tenants of the current women's movement is that we shouldn't be afraid to take up space, and many of this year's Golden Globes attendees appear to have taken that advice quite literally. Giant, oversize sleeves were one of the biggest trends on the red carpet and we couldn't get enough of it. These women proved the '80s silhouette is truly back in the absolute best way. Some were puffy, some were fluffy, but all of them were spectacular. Here are some of the best of the night.
