“Gloves are back, let’s have some fun,” said stylist Jennifer Austin.
The fashion world seems primed for the first major red carpet moment of the year when the awards ceremony returns on Tuesday. looking forward to it.
Austin of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association said, “It’s been good to see them progress and change. They played Queen Ramonda in ‘Black Panther Wakanda Forever’ and played Angela Bassett, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actress. added, “There is still a long way to go.”
After facing backlash over its operational standards and lack of diversity (which previously had zero black members), the HFPA held a closed-door ceremony in 2022 with no stars or carpet. and handed back the Golden Globes, but until recently it was unclear who would be appearing this year. Presenters include Ana de Armas, Billy Porter, Tracy Morgan, Jamie Lee Curtis, Quentin Tarantino, Natasha Lyonne and many more. We also expect headline-grabbing names like Rihanna and Selena Gomez.
This is because the organization has announced plans for reform, and 103 new voters (22.3% Latino, 13.6% Black, 11.7% Asian, 10.7% Middle Eastern, 41.7% White, and 58.3% are ethnically after acknowledging that they self-identify as “diverse.” .
“It’s time for a change,” says Christina Ehrlich, the stylist behind Lyonne’s dress. “It’s a very difficult time in the world right now, but fashion’s job is to deliver beauty and optimism, glamour and fantasy.”
For leading stylists, preparing for their next show is no different than it has been for years. For one thing, I was always in a bit of a rush due to the timing of the next few days of the holiday break.
“It’s a weird one because it always comes so soon after Christmas,” said Rose Ford, Emma Darcy’s stylist. “The Globe has historically always been a little tricky from a styling standpoint.”
Kate Young, who wore costumes of Gomez, Margot Robbie, and Michelle Williams, said, “It’s still early, so you have to plan early. ‘That’s what you have to plan before the holidays.'”
At this point, international brands know they have “many things ready to go to New York or Los Angeles”.
A new challenge, however, is that of shipping. Most companies are now unreliable, costs are skyrocketing, and it is becoming more difficult to receive samples.
“I had to switch to using Worldnet [International] Instead of FedEx or UPS….they carry the packages by hand, which costs a lot more,” Urbinati said. “Since COVID-19, scheduled shipping companies have become completely unreliable.
“We have to be a little more selective,” Austin said of receiving samples because of the cost.
At this year’s Globe Awards, Austin revealed that Bassett will be “simpler but different”. You have to plan your attack, start high and keep going high, but your crescendo is Oscar.”
How do the Globe Awards compare to other awards ceremonies today?
“With Globes, it’s formal,” says Young. “It’s very formal. More than the premiere, maybe less than the Oscars or Cannes.”
“For me, Globes are huge,” Urbinati said. “The Golden Globes and the Oscars are two big awards. I always plan to keep the best two outfits for maximum visibility.”
The big change on the red carpet, as stylists have repeatedly said, is how flashy the look has become.
“Honestly, I think all the ceremonies over the last few years have been wild,” Ford said. “More and more these days there’s kind of a battle for space, a battle for press, a battle for attention. So many people are trying to say so many different things, so many fashions. I have always tried to make my clients look cool, relevant and who they are in every ceremony I work on…but without real sincerity, the greatest I have no intention of going to a fashion moment.
When it comes to menswear, there are fewer rules to break on the carpet, says Urbinati. –t.
There’s some storytelling, as designers want to capture the mood of the moment, while stylists want to offer natural looks that match their clients’ personal styles and career evolutions.
“From a styling standpoint, it will be interesting to see what people are going to do,” said Ford.
It’s a guessing game.
“Looking at the people nominated, Viola Davis, Ana de Armas, Margot Robbie, Michelle Yeoh, just down the list, I can almost say she would wear this or that brand. ,” said Best Actress nominee Ehrlich, referring to the relationship brands have with talent.
Robbie, who has reportedly been released from his Chanel deal, has recently worn Celine, Bottega Veneta and Alaia. Davis, who wore a La Renta dress, chose Louis Vuitton for the Governor’s Award. Pictured at Tory Burch. Jordan Johnson will wear Yeo on the cover of Time Magazine’s 2022 Icon of the Year and in Schiaparelli at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on Thursday night.
“I think there are people who are really going out and having necklines and backlines plummeting. And I think it’s about time we got to see some more of the old Hollywood classics, so I’m hopeful.” Ehrlich added.
