Kickstarting this year’s Hollywood award season, the Golden Globes emphasised on the fight against sexual harassment and the recent #MeToo and, #TimesUp campaigns. If Oprah’s touching speech and her announcement to run for the Oval Office in 2020 didn’t garner your attention, the all-black red carpet gowns definitely would have. Here are the six best and worst dressed people on its red carpet.
1. Issa Rae
Not many people can pull off a plunging neckline and a thigh-high slit in the same outfit, but, Issa Rae showed us that isn’t one of them. Dressed in a Prabal Gurung gown and Lorrain Schwartz jewellery, Issa Rae was one of the best dressed at this year’s Golden Globes.
2. Viola Davis
Anna Wintour once said that she’ll never feature an all-black outfit in Vogue, but after this award show it may be possible that she’d reconsider. Viola Davis exuberated royalty and regality at the red carpet, wearing a Brandon Maxwell gown, 120 carats of Harry Winston diamonds and, carrying a Tyler Ellis Lily clutch.
3. Noah Schnapp
While the all-black red carpet was not new for the men in attendance, Noah Schnapp made a statement like no one else. The 13-year-old Stranger Things actor was dressed in a Balmain suit, with a Brackish bowtie and Jésù-Ségun London shoes. She completed the look with an Elizabetta Boutique scarf and the cutest smile.
4. Heidi Klum
Heidi Klum can do nothing wrong, except maybe this time. Sporting a high-low hem Ashi Studio dress and Lorraine Schwartz jewellery, her sense of style were forgettable. Perhaps it was the feathery bodice or a train that barely was one.
5. Mandy Moore
Unfortunately, Mandy Moore was one of the worst dress at the ceremony The “This is Us” actress wore a Rosie Assoulin gown with visible wrinkles and a cheap-looking fabric. The red belt looked like someone ripped a strip of the red carpet to put it around her waist.
- Emma Watson
While Emma Watson stuck to the all-black dress code, her custom Ronald van der Kemp gown made her age at least by 50 years while her baby-bangs had the complete opposite effect. With this mismatch and her cupcake-wrapper looking sleeves, she could not conquer her hearts like she did in Harry Potter.
We were sure that this year’s Golden Globes would easily become a snooze-fest, given the strict dress code. Nevertheless, everyone on the red carpet proved us wrong which ironically, brightened our day.
