Our top 9 favourite looks from the Golden Globes red carpet
Last night, the 77th annual Golden Globes took place in Hollywood.
It's officially the beginning of the awards circuit and the Golden Globes' red carpet really sets the tone for the season ahead.
As the celebrities turned out in their masses, a few trends could be taken from what was worn on the red carpet. A big player was puffy sleeves, bows, and surprisingly, sequins. There was also a lot of black and white seen last night, which could be a big hint for what's to come.
Disclaimer: I didn't include any puffy sleeved dresses because, frankly; the trend has been done to death on the high street and I'm kind of over it.
But anyway, I picked out my top 9 favourite looks from the red carpet, which I think you can agree go from classical looks, to the trendiest pieces.
Cynthia Erivo wearing Thom Browne
I adored Cynthia's dress for its sexy, yet classic shape. It featured an off-the-shoulder, plunging neckline and a thigh high split. However, the Thom Browne number really kicked things up a notch by being completely adorned with Swarovski crystals. Cynthia was one of the best dressed last night, in my opinion.
Billy Porter wearing Alex Vanassche
Is a red carpet complete without the appearance of Billy Porter? I think not. Billy didn't disappoint last night in his Alex Vanassche white suit. The look was completed with a feathered train which brought all the drama. A shout out also has to be given to his crystal-encrusted Jimmy Choo boots - they're just dreamy.
Saoirse Ronan wearing Celine
While she missed out on the award for Best Actress in Drama Motion Picture for her role as Jo March in Little Women, she was a vision on the red carpet. The Irish actress wore a bejewelled Celine number which featured a thigh-high split, slight cowl neck and a super low back. I love how she kept her hair and makeup to a minimum which really made the dress shine.
Joey King wearing Iris Van Herpen
I have already written about Joey King being one to watch in 2020 and she didn't disappoint me last night. The actress took to the red carpet wearing an Iris Van Herpen design which I think made her completely stand out from the crowd. The design on her looked flawless and I love how she simply put her hair in a pony. Understated, yet elegant.
Zoë Kravitz wearing Saint Laurent
Polka dots are going to be a major player in the trends field this season and Zoë slayed it on the Golden Globes red carpet. Wearing Saint Laurent, the strapless column dress included a ruffled top with off-the-shoulder three-quarter length sleeves, and a white-on-black polka dot pattern. She finished off the look with a bow around her waist which made the whole look fun and flirty.
Ana de Armas wearing Ralph and Russo
If you want to do sequins the right way, then take a page out of Ana de Armas' book. Ana's Ralph and Russo dress gave me all the Disney princess vibes while also being dark and Gothic. The Knives Out actress certainly turned heads in the midnight blue shining number and I'm quite obsessed with her Tiffany & Co choker necklace.
Charlize Theron wearing Dior
There has been a lot of discussion about this dress online, with some loving it and some hating it. I think it's quite out-there, the colour is daring and the fit is perfect. While yes, the striking green hue might not be to everyone's taste, I like how Charlize stepped outside of the box and went for something a little different.
Gugu Mbatha-Raw wearing Gucci
It's striking, it's different, it's sexy. Gugu went for quite a flashy gold Gucci number last night, and while a gold dress is nothing new, I adore that it's not full length. With that one detail it sets it apart from the other dresses on the red carpet and I also love how she matched it with a red lip. Perfection.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge wearing Ralph and Russo
Hell yessss to this glorious suit! Phoebe Waller-Bridge was one of the few women to rock a suit on the red carpet last night and she pulled it off effortlessly. The Ralph and Russo blazer was adorned with a bow on the side, and she wore nothing underneath, instantly giving it an edge. Better yet, Phoebe pledged to auction the suit, with the money going to crisis relief for the Australian fires.
