Pepto Bismol pink, tailored suits, and all things glittery and metallic were trending hard at this year’s Golden Globes. And this made for quite the slinky start to the 2020 red carpet season. To this, we say, Yay.
The last few years have been very conservative as we moved from #allblackeverything in 2018 coming off of #Metoo to an explosion of primary colors last year.
But this year’s fashion was cool, calm, collected and grown up starting with Cynthia Erivo in a black-and-white, tuxedo-style Thom Browne and Ana de Armas in a princess-style Ralph Russo.
Our favorite pink looks go to Priyanka Chopra and Tiffany Haddish, who was statuesque in a pink Grecian gown that gave us Barbie DreamHouse vibes by Galia Lahav. We love a structured princess gown, so Jennifer Aniston in all-black Dior Haute Couture -- with ruffle --was definitely a favorite.
De Armas arrived on the red carpet in a liquid metallic navy princess gown. This strapless dress was a sultry Cinderella look. And, oh, there was J-Lo. Some said J-No. But I said J-not-so-bad. Because even if the green-and-gold Christmas package silhouette was too much, the Hustlers star was able to pull off this gift-wrapped look in Valentino in a way that only J-Lo can.
I didn’t quite get Kerry Washington in the sultry Altuzarra skirt suit that featured a metal chain instead of, ahem, a blouse. And we’d be remiss if we didn’t give Billy Porter winter-white fashion props in his cream suit by New York-based designer Alex Vinash, with the never-ending, albeit delicate, train.
When it came to best-looking couple Chopra and Nick Jonas, only Chopra can make this pink look sophisticated. And Jonas’ tie and double-breasted suit made for marital, sartorial perfection.
Awkwafina has made the suit-on-the-red-carpet her personal statement. We love her for this Dior -- with pockets.
Haddish, was very conservative (we think her bob was all natural, too, as in no weave), and we couldn’t help but notice the actresses’ Star of David necklace -- she recently became a bat mitzvah. We love it when fashion meets authenticity.
I predict that Charlize Theron’s Golden Globe haircut will be the cut of this coming summer. We haven’t seen that hair since the ’90s, nor have we seen a dress that marries goddess draping and boned corset detailing -- and all that color blocking, color blocking, color blocking ... .
Washington’s skirt suit -- with the deep ’90s split -- was definitely the most interesting dress. And totally sexy. The metallic T-top, the tailored blazer. Cheekbones a win.
The winner of the ridiculous-but-interesting award goes to Jodie Comer of Killing Eve. The evergreen hue and Big Bird yellow fringed bag definitely complemented each other. But it’s never a good look to show up at an awards show looking like a triangle.
Sofia Vergara does her every-season thing -- but we can’t deny that it works for her -- in a deep-red Dolce & Gabbana slinky strapless gown. Sweetheart neckline included. Her jewels, Lorraine Schwartz. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Harriet Tubman star Erivo’s gown was a combination of all that is feminine and sophisticated. The entire look was hand-beaded, included the black, floral-embroidered lining. If this is a harbinger of what the Golden Globes will be, we are all feeling it.
And then there was Porter. Shoes by Jimmy Choo. Jewels are Tiffany. Love. Love. Love. “This is not a sitting outfit,” Porter told Ryan Seacrest. “This is a standing outfit.” Yasss.
Christina Applegate, nominated for best leading actress for Dead to Me, was in a Pamela Roland gown that was alive with metallic sexiness. #winner
Margot Robbie stole our heart in in strapless glitter top and cream skirt-- with pockets.
