2019 Golden Globes: Our best and worst fashion picks
We’re just six days into 2019 and awards season is here with Sunday’s presentation of the 76th Golden Globe Awards from the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.
As in years past, we’re covering the red carpet and sharing our picks for for the best-dressed style winners in addition to some inevitable — and sometimes spectacular — misses.
Danai Gurira was on fire in our style book at the 76th Golden Globes in Beverly Hills. For the awards show, she wore an orange and red gown with an orange statement bow by Rodarte coupled with a bejeweled hairpiece.(Allen J. Schaben / Los Angeles Times)
Could we expect anything less from uber-statement maker Lady Gaga? She arrived on the carpet at the 76th Golden Globes in Beverly Hills wearing an ice blue Valentino Couture gown with an extra long train that was said to evoke Judy Garland in the previous version of “A Star Is Born.” Gaga even added the color to her hair.(Jordan Strauss / Invision/AP)
Lupita Nyong’o is a regular on the best-dressed lists. On the 76th Golden Globes red carpet, she was resplendent in a Calvin Klein by Appointment cobalt-blue chain fringed dress with silver drop beads and a Calvin Klein 205W39NYC Collection metallic silver box clutch.(Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
Mahershala Ali, a winner for “Green Book,” was living la dolce vita in Etro on the 76th Golden Globes red carpet in Beverly Hills. We couldn’t agree more, which is why he’s on our best dressed list.(Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
The legendary Carol Burnett wore a long gold-sequined jacket paired with a floor-length black slit skirt by the equally iconic Bob Mackie, making her one of our top picks at the 76th Golden Globes in Beverly Hills.(Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
Instead of going with Queen-style flash or the colorful styles that many male stars have worn on red carpets of late, Rami Malek, the star of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” went classic Hollywood by wearing a dark fall/winter 2018 Givenchy tuxedo by designer Clare Waight Keller.(Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
Stephan James knows that the devil is truly in the details. That’s why he earned his place among our favorites with his velvet Ralph Lauren Purple Label tuxedo, Christian Louboutin shoes and a stunning lapel pin by Chopard at the 76th Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills.(Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
With his fresh dark hairdo, Troye Sivan looks regal in a shawl-collar, Prussian blue Calvin Klein tuxedo at the 76th Golden Globes in Beverly Hills.(Frazer Harrison / Getty Images)
Taraji P. Henson brings classic elegance to the 76th Golden Globes red carpet in a green velvet Vera Wang gown with a plunging neckline and a simple long choker of diamonds. Because she brought sexy back to the red carpet is why she’s on our best-dressed list.(Jon Kopaloff / Getty Images)
Idris Elba brings his best sexiest-man-alive vibes to the red carpet in a green velvet tuxedo jacket and vest combo by British fashion designer Ozwald Boateng at the 76th Golden Globes in Beverly Hills. James Bond would be jealous of his stylish look.(Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
Golden Globes co-host Sandra Oh is white hot in her Atelier Versace gown with ruche detailing and an asymmetrical shoulder on the carpet at the 76th Golden Globes in Beverly Hills. Oh captures old Hollywood glamour that’s perfect for a host, a nominee or a winner.(Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
Regina King, who often brings tons of style to awards season, is an early red-carpet favorite in a gorgeous dusty plum sequined gown by Alberta Ferretti at the 76th Golden Globes in Beverly Hills. She brings a dose of va va voom to the carpet.(Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
Jamie Lee Curtis brings new meaning to “color-blocking” at the 76th Golden Globes in Beverly Hills in this stunning white gown with silver detailing down the center and a front slit, a look that not-so-subtly matches her hair.(Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
We’re torn. At first glance, we loved the top of Amber Heard’s black-and-white Monique Lhuillier gown for the 76th Golden Globes, but the bottom – a full skirt -- was a real dud. It looked like two different dresses were combined into one at the last minute. It was too jarring for our eyes, and that’s why it’s on our worst list.(Jordan Strauss / Invision/AP)
Constance Wu is typically a delight but misses the mark in this whipped-up gown by Vera Wang at the 76th Golden Globes. The fancy orange fashion bow can’t save the look, which puts her square on our miss list.(Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
Anne Hathaway appears to have gotten lost on the way to a safari party instead of an awards show in this animal-print number by Elie Saab. It’s a look that unfortunately lands her on our worst list for the 76th Golden Globes.(Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
What can we say about America’s sweetheart Julia Roberts, who usually inspires on the carpet? This time she misses the mark in this Stella McCartney look, which includes black pants that look fit for the office (with a tulle train?) and a fancier asymmetrical tan-colored top, at the 76th Golden Globes. Somebody need a Band-Aid?(Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
We love a good gender-bending look, but Cody Fern seems lost somewhere between Aesop’s fables and a French perfume advertisement in this number complete with cloven hoof shoes by Maison Margiela at the 76th Golden Globes in Beverly Hills.(Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
Kate Mara throws caution to the wind with a bedazzled brassiere at the top of the chiffon floor-length Miu Miu gown for the 76th Golden Globes. Unfortunately, it reminds us a little of a fancy shower curtain.(Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
Timothée Chalamet looks as if he’s auditioning for a trapeze troupe in a new Cirque du Soleil show. For the Golden Globes, he wore a black button-up shirt with a mandarin collar under a shiny embellished harness from Louis Vuitton by Virgil Abloh.(Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
Usually a red-carpet standout, Debra Messing looks as if she’s glued to the 76th Golden Globes red carpet despite the light feathers worked into this overly heavy gown by Pamella Roland.(Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
Erin Lim attempts to add a sweet note to this Easter egg-colored, trifle-inspired look at the 76th Golden Globe in Beverly Hills. However, trifle isn’t a dessert that’s on our menu this season.(Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
Allison Brie is sending confusing sartorial messages in this embellished bra and too-busy gown by Vera Wang at the 76th Golden Globes in Beverly Hills. And who needs that on a red carpet when you can make a major fashion statement in front of the world?(Valerie Macon / AFP/Getty Images)
Who doesn’t love Lucy Liu’s style? Often we do, but this time we don’t. If only someone had told her to lose the sheer pink cape over her pink and multicolor-detailed Galia Lahav gown before she left the house for the 76th Golden Globes in Beverly Hills. The lesson here: Not all superheroes or fashionable actresses should wear capes.(Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
Although she’s on trend for the night wearing green, Our Lady J, a fan favorite from “Pose” and “Transparent,” is wearing one of our least favorite looks -- a busy mermaid gown -- at the 76th Golden Globes in Beverly Hills. A simpler green gown would have worked marvelously.(Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
Although we saw magical transformations from the newer and ever-evolving style setters, it was just as exciting to see what veteran fashion favorites presented on the carpet.
Check out our list of the best and worst from this year’s kickoff to the season of golden statuettes.
