What's it like to get ready for the Golden Globes? Well, it's a little like getting ready for prom ... if your prom included a professional beauty entourage and was broadcast to millions of people. No pressure, though!

As a red carpet regular and former beauty queen, Olivia Culpo is no stranger to high-stakes primping. She took us behind the scenes at Sunday night's Golden Globes, where we watched her keep her effortless cool all night long.

Turns out even red carpet pros get butterflies on the way there.
