This year the Golden Globes was a largely digital affair, with some actors popping up on a socially-distanced red carpet in Beverly Hills, and others Zooming in from their homes, pets in the background. You'd be forgiven for thinking that the circumstances dialled back the dress code dress back, but actually, it was larger and louder than ever before. Here, a rundown of the most noteworthy looks.
The Crown star Emma Corrin won her first Golden Globes (Best Actress in a drama) in a custom-made velvet Miu Miu dress with Swarovski crystals and organza collar, inspired by her favourite theatre character, Pierrot, the most melancholic of the clowns. Her make-up reference? An iconic portrait of Twiggy through the lense of Barry Lategan, with a single tear on the chic and statement eyelashes.
Winner of the Best Actress in television series for the Queen’s Gambit, Anya Taylor-Joy delivered a red carpet moment in a shimmering emerald Dior lurex gown with a matching cape, shoes, and Tiffany & Co. diamonds. Phwoar.
Nobody designs fairy-tale dresses like Molly Goddard. Her dreamy tulle creations were spotted twice at this year’s ceremony: Rosamund Pike, Best Actress in comedy for I Care a Lot, wore a bright cherry gown with chunky boots, while Bridgerton star Nicola Coughlan, settled for a pale lemon dress that she paired with a black cardigan and De Beers diamonds.
“Thank you, Chanel, for letting me wear the dress of my dreams! I never want to take it off”, said Normal People star Daisy Edgar Jones about her crochet, haute couture dress that was blanketed in embroidered daisies.
Aretha star, Cynthia Erivo made a statement in a custom sleeveless Valentino gown, in acid green mesh fabric, styled with elbow-grazing gloves and towering silver platforms.
The Great actress Elle Fanning opted for a stunning pastel blue Gucci dress, with crystal embellished straps. Fitting of course as her character Catherine the Great, loved sparkle and dripped in diamonds, sapphires and emeralds.
This month was not an easy ride for the Ratched star Sarah Paulson, who reportedly broke her arm during the filming of the new season of American Crime Story. The red carpet solution? Why a custom-made Prada cast with lilac sequins and a signature triangular logo plaque, to compliment her off the shoulder Prada gown. “When you’re Lady Paulson, you get a custom Prada cast to go with your custom Prada dress”, boasted Paulson’s stylist Kara Welch on her Instagram.
Bill Murray might not have won Best Supporting Actor award for his performance in On the Rocks, but he stole the sartorial show, going viral for his arrival at the ceremony, via Zoom, in a multi-colored Hawaiian shirt, with a martini in his hand. "And the Golden Globe goes to: Bill Murray's Martini!" one fan joked on Twitter.
Though the new Instagram fashion icon Tika the Iggy was not officially invited to the Golden Globes ceremony, she couldn’t resist getting in on the action, posting a Reels walking down the stairs in a custom Lucas Stowe glitter gown: “Honey, I am the Red Carpet!”.
