So, the Golden Globes are back two years after disappearing from screens, first due to pandemic-induced lockdowns and then due to financial, ethical and racial scandals. And with their disappearance came the phenomenon’s first major red his carpet, also known as the Extended Awards Season fashion show.
Ahead of the event, speculation abounded: Will the stars actually show up at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association wounded? Do they shun flashy ensembles in favor of something hauntingly bland and bland?
As if. Globe night turned out to be a night to make a statement on stage and on the red carpet. It’s not like marketing or branding, it’s personal. And it was more interesting to it.
Host Jerrod Carmichael set the tone with an opening monologue, addressing the Grove’s historical lack of diversity without pulling a punch, and continued from there: six matches, including two skinny blacks. In the set (counting) costume changes. Velvet suit (Armani first). pink symphony. A white tuxedo with a sheer turtleneck and pearl necklace. And a board beaded tunic. This might be the record for the number of awards his show looks worn by one host. If fashion brands don’t sign him up soon, it will be the biggest surprise of the night.
Still, go big or go home seemed to be a common theme. Rihanna appeared at her first major event after giving birth, dressed in a black velvet Schiaparelli bustier her dress and a huge shoulder-engulfing carved velvet stole, and even more velvet. Wearing her opera gloves and Cartier her diamonds.
Angela Bassett played a silver superhero in Pamela Rolland’s sequins, Laverne Cox channeled Marilyn Monroe in a blonde bob and a vintage Galliano gown. Caught in Oscar de la Renta cobwebs with matching masks. She was one of the few participants who agreed with the ongoing reality of Covid .
Royalty was on trend, with copious amounts of red (Lily James wore a bandeau top and acres of Versace skirts dangling) and purple (Selena Gomez as Valentino and Sherrill Lee Ralph in a sparkling Ariet). . This probably came as no surprise given the nature of the subject, which has recently become inevitable thanks to Prince Harry’s memoir.
Pink is also courtesy of Seth Rogen of Salmon Dior Men and Margot Robbie of Powder Puff Chanel. (Rumors of her separation from her brand appear to be greatly exaggerated, as she is “not as non-binary as wearing both skirts and trousers.”)
There was a lot to talk about with the clothes on. Mikaela Je Rodriguez in a draped sapphire Balmain for E! Her dress was a “giving water butterfly”. Putting on Rodarte, he said he wanted to be “like a woman trying to transform into a magical plant”. It’s the beginning of the year. anything could happen.
Donald Glover said he wanted comfort and the opportunity to “get a little drunk” in white silk YSL pajamas and robes set under his tuxedo. Perhaps the perfect combination of a work-at-home outfit and a black tie.
In fact, it’s just one of many modern twists on the old tuxedo. Jean Smart modeled best in her elegant sharp-shouldered tuxedo his dress with a real twist at the waist, and Hannah his Einbinder in her Herrera in a strapless black Carolina. bottom. A tea dress with a white bow on the bodice.
Like Laetitia Wright, she seemed able to move.In a simple prada trompe l’oeil silk column dress, deliberately rumpled and rough-cut, a sort of ode to the elegance of imperfection. Like the night itself, it was a reminder that how we handle it matters when it comes to our imperfections.
