The stakes were high for the first major red carpet event of 2020 and Hollywood‘s elite more than delivered, with many stars donning their brightest and boldest ball gowns yesterday at the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards. While the red carpet itself may have been reusable in a praiseworthy attempt for the Golden Globes to become Tinseltown’s first sustainable awards show, the evening’s sartorial selections featured fresh perspectives on the season’s biggest statements.
Red was the color of choice with nominees Nicole Kidman, Scarlett Johansson, and Olivia Colman all wearing sweeping ruby-colored gowns in picture-perfect representations of retro Hollywood glamor. Strapless and off-the-shoulder necklines took center carpet with Judy star Renée Zellweger draped in baby blue Armani Privé, Australian leading lady Margot Robbie indulging in a slim Chanel silhouette with pockets, and British actor Annabelle Wallis opting for a traditionally elegant Zuhair Murad gown. No matter the year, sequins are a never forgotten trend with former Vogue Arabia cover star Winnie Harlow sparkling in a thigh-high fringe ensemble from New York-based designer LaQuan Smith and Saoirse Ronan looking just the part of a Little Woman in a shimmering Celine dress.
