Golden Globes 2020: Four Major Trends From The Red Carpet
The Golden Globes, the first showbiz award gala of 2020, held on Sunday, and Hollywood’s brightest stars sparkled on the red carpet. The best and brightest of film and television gathered at the Beverly Hilton in their finest for the ceremony.
Have a look at some of the colourful trends spotted on the red carpet at this year’s Golden Globes:
1. Black and white
Tinseltown’s A-list wants to make a good impression on the first major red carpet of the year. How better to do that than in classic black and white, a fashion staple!
Style icon Billy Porter, a nominee for best actor in a TV drama for his work on “Pose,” wowed fans in an all-white Alex Vinash tuxedo with a coat featuring a giant feather train that zips off.
Nominated actress Joey King (“The Act”) created a daring carpet moment in a sculptural black and white Iris van Herpen dress. It had a mind-boggling wavy detail and bare shoulders that van Herpen dresses are now known for.
Actress-filmmaker Greta Gerwig turned heads in a black Proenza Schouler dress with a notable side slit and a white off the shoulder neckline. Her “Little Women” was in contention but it was notably snubbed in the best director category.
Nominee Cynthia Erivo (“Harriet”) rocked a similar look. She donned a custom Thom Browne number with flowers embroidered in the inner lining of her dress.
And Awkwafina, who took home the award for best comedy film actress for her starring role in “The Farewell,” sported a sleek Dior tuxedo with a ruffled collar blouse and a long ball skirt.

2. Ladies in red
A red dress is the stuff of Hollywood legends, and some of Hollywood’s biggest stars delivered.
Nicole Kidman, who stars in the Fox News harassment scandal flick “Bombshell” as Gretchen Carlson, went strapless — a big trend on the night — in a crimson Versace gown with a train and strappy stilettos.
Scarlett Johansson, who starred in the searing Netflix divorce drama “Marriage Story,” upped the va-va-voom factor in a plunging strapless Vera Wang gown in a hue that matched her name.
And Olivia Colman, a winner on Sunday for her turn as Queen Elizabeth II in Netflix’s “The Crown,” opted for a red Emilia Wickstead gown with dramatic puff sleeves and an Empire waist.
3. Midnight (mid-afternoon?) blues
The stars hit the red carpet in the middle of the afternoon in Los Angeles. Nevertheless, midnight blue was all the rage.
Ana de Armas, a nominee for best comedy actress for the murder mystery “Knives Out,” said she was “a little bit of a mess” at her first Globes. However, she looked like a million bucks in a glittering, strapless Ralph and Russo gown with a full skirt.
Beanie Feldstein beamed in her strapless blue Oscar de la Renta gown and matching headband. She is also a nominee in the same category for “Booksmart”.
4. Shades of green
Charlize Theron looked stunning in an off-the-shoulder vibrant green Dior gown with a black corset bodice. She plays journalist Megyn Kelly in “Bombshell”.
“Killing Eve” star Jodie Comer channelled her eccentric assassin character Villanelle in a full emerald green gown with puff sleeves and a canary yellow clutch.
Jennifer Lopez is 50 and fabulous. She has earned lots of praise for her Globe-nominated performance as a veteran stripper with a plan in “Hustlers”.
Her red carpet moments are sometimes the stuff of legend, like her iconic green Versace dress at the 2000 Grammys. But on Sunday, her Valentino look — topped with a giant green and gold bow — was less than universally loved.
“Jennifer Lopez has come as a giant present. I thought we were past that,” New York Times fashion critic Vanessa Friedman tweeted.
