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.

First thing's first: the makeup chair.

If you're not being touched by at least two people and clutching a water bottle bigger than your head, you're doing it wrong.

Eventually, she walked away with a glamorous updo that would make Princess Leia proud.

Did she finish her water, though? The world will never know.

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

Can we get a moment for those brows, though.Instagram

But we have it on good authority that she killed it.

Okay, now we need a moment for that beading.Instagram

Right before killing this selfie inside the Beverly Hilton.

And then killing this steak dinner.

"I'm kinda worried that I won't fit into my dress, but ... I'm hungry!" she said.Instagram

Lots of casualties of Ms. Culpo's fierceness.
