Hollywood’s leading men and ladies have hit the red carpet in Los Angeles for the 76th annual Golden Globes, and in a real treat for all of us armchair critics back home, there are plenty of experimental looks.
Leading the charge is Lady Gaga, who’s scored her first Best Actress nomination for the role of Ally in the critically-acclaimed A Star Is Born.
There’s no doubt all eyes were always going to be on her today, but just in case any weren’t – she brought a Plan B in the form of this eye-catching ensemble.
Sleeves big enough to smuggle in snacks? Check. A train to rival Meghan’s royal wedding gown? Check. Bright colour? Check? Matching coloured hair? You betcha.
Also, shout-out to Gaga for committing to wearing these alarmingly high heels for hours on end – my feet hurt just looking at them.
While the 2018 red carpet may have been a sea of black (in a sartorial nod to the Time’s Up movement), this year, colour is making a big comeback.
2019 Golden Globes hosts, Killing Eve star – and Best Actress in a Drama TV Series nominee – Sandra Oh and Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Andy Samberg were among the earliest arrivals ahead of the ceremony’s midday (Australian) start time.
Here are the best, worst and boldest looks so far from the 2019 Golden Globes red carpet:
The Marvelous Mrs Maisel’s lead star, Rachel Brosnahan, channelled her character’s love of bright colours in a bold yellow dress. The actress won Best Actress in a Comedy/Musical TV Series for Mrs. Maisel in 2018, and is nominated in the same category again this year.
A Star Is Born director and lead actor Bradley Cooper – who’s nominated for Best Actor and Best Director – brought his supermodel partner Irina Shayk.
Speaking of golden couples, here’s The Quiet Place’s John Krasinski and his wife, Mary Poppins Returns star Emily Blunt, who’s nominated for a Golden Globe for her role as the magical nanny.
They look so cute and happy together, I’m not even going to mention how triggered my arachnophobia is by her cobweb-by dress.
Australian actress Yvonne Strahovski, who’s nominated for Best Supporting Actress for the hugely popular The Handmaid’s Tale, stunned in a flowing strapless mint-green dress.
Plunging necklines are clearly trending this year, with Empire actress Taraji P. Henson risking a wardrobe malfunction to serve up this seriously sultry Lewk.
Keri Russell got the memo too – fingers crossed she also picked up some Hollywood Tape.
Model and actress Molly Sims also showed off plenty of cleavage.
Bohemian Rhapsody star Lucy Boynton was eye-catching in a long-sleeved sparkling gold gown – with an Angelina Jolie-esque thigh split.
Meanwhile, actress Laura Harrier – who stars in BlacKkKlansman, nominated for four Golden Globes – looked flawless in a unique black sequinned gown.
Two-time Golden Globes nominee Amy Adams, who’s in the running for Best Supporting Actress for Vice and Best Actress in a Mini-Series for Sharp Objects, totally deserves a win today – just not for this dull dress.
Kidding co-stars Jim Carrey and Ginger Gonzaga proudly displayed their new relationship with this seriously sweet red carpet appearance.
Longtime awards show fixtures, Extra presenter Mario Lopez and his Australian co-host Renee Bargh were among the first to arrive, along with E! News host Giuliana Rancic.
The black dress code protest may no longer be in effect, but Time’s Up is still present on the red carpet. Supporters of the movement – including Rancic – have accessorised their black-tie outfits with black-and-white ribbons and bands, designed by Hollywood stylist Arianne Phillips, as a visual representation of Time’s Up’s new TIMESUPx2 campaign, aimed at combating sexual harassment in the workplace.
This romantic gown from If Beale Street Could Talk star Kiki Layne was breathtaking.
