Awards season spawns a raft of best-dressed lists. Something delicious from Timothée Chalamet, something else - apolitical, apparently - from someone you recognise but cannot name, who ‘Just Won the Golden Globes’ (no, not an actual Golden Globe, just the Golden Globes).
But this year, the most interesting/ pinnable/ lustable style belonged to those free from a legacy of looks, and - dare we say - predictable fashionability. Those who are on their way to the upper echelons, but are too nascent and fresh-faced to level the ‘ergh, terrible!’ comments at (save those for J-Lo and her monumental gift-wrapped bow pas). Too talented to snuff. Too savvy to hold back.
Beanie Feldstein’s royal blue rings, headband and earrings were the comma, exclamation mark and full stop of her outfit's. In voluminous Valentino Haute Couture, her Book Smart co-star Kaitlyn Denver looked every bit as punchy and winsome as her recent roles. Meanwhile, Saoirse Ronan's showcased a deft departure from Jo March in dazzling, chain mail-y Celine. The list goes on for as long as you’re willing to scroll, but below are six standouts.
