Clearly, all of the stars collided at the Warner Bros. And InStyle Golden Globes After Party at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday (January 5) in California, with many more in attendance to celebrate the first big awards show of the season.
Sarah Hyland: Sarah channeled her sweet side in this pretty-in-pink Monique Lhuillier Spring 2020 gown that may prove too sugary for some.
Kiki Layne: Mesh mixed with feather for an eclectic effect in this Julien Macdonald Spring 2020 frock styled with René Caovilla ‘Cleo’ sandals and TASAKI Atelier jewels.
Jessica Alba: This J. Mendel tiered gown was all about feminine romance, but it was also laced with mysterious allure, thanks to the metallic sheen.
Jasmine Sanders: This body-baring Georges Hobeika Fall 2019 Couture sheer, glitzy, leggy gown had a very J. Lo vibe to it. Regardless, she did pull it off well with Le Vian earrings and Giuseppe Zanotti heels as subtle complements to the chartreuse sparkle.
Laura Harrier: I really liked this Louis Vuitton Resort 2020 metal mini on Laura, as it had a glam, cocktail party vibe that felt special but not try-hard. The dress took top billing with barely-there Repossi jewels and Giuseppe Zanotti sandals.
Sophia Bush: The sky-blue hue of this John Paul Ataker gown was lovely on Sophia, but the bodice presented some fit issues. Jimmy Choo shoes and Anita Ko jewels finished the look.
Nicole Scherzinger: This Maticevski Spring 2020 soft pink gown saw Nicole at her subtle best with the romantic, sensual drape of the gown perfectly accentuating her silhouette.
Laverne Cox: Leave it to Laverne to bring a big, voluptuous gown right into the After Party. Some might say this Michael Cinco shirred tulle gown, which was designed to create an electric pleats effect, would have been better reserved for the main event. But, I loved every square inch of it. Go bold or go home.
Ashley Madekwe: Given the more delicate nature of this Markarian Spring 2019 embellished gown, the red lip and black handbag seemed a bit too harsh. Stuart Weitzman poudre suede ‘Sabrina’ sandals completed the dress.
Camila Morrone: I would have never guessed this black gown to be an Etro dress, absent as it were of florals and colour. It was strangely dated, and Messika Paris jewels and Stuart Weitzman sandals didn’t bring much to the party, either.
Bebe Rexha: The entertainer worked the pouf sleeve trend — and matched her eyes and nails to her sleeves — in this Yanina Fall 2018 Couture frock styled with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes.
Skai Jackson: The starlet had some darling fun with this little gift of a RED Valentino bow-accented mini paired with matching Stuart Weitzman shoes.
La La Anthony: This seductive-goth Labourjoisie plunge gown with its illusion slit translated as inexpensive — as did the black talons.
Tika Sumpter: It doesn’t surprise me that this white frock hailed from the Viktor & Rolf Mariage collection — the label’s artistic interpretation of bridalwear. That aside, the styling felt dated here, from the half-up hair to the green bag and satin pumps.
Nikki Reed: The sunset-orange and stormy-gray palette of this Hass Idriss ombre gown was beautifully intriguing. The Lala Léxa ‘Victoria’ clutch didn’t echo the same effect, though, so it wouldn’t have been my first choice. But, I’m glad her Stuart Weitzman pumps blended right in.
Rachel Brosnahan: ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ actress wore her second Michael Kors Collection design of the night — and those that were craving more pizzazz had their wishes fulfilled in this sassy, sparkly little number that also had some retro-prom flavour.
Ariel Winter: The neon-bright hue of this Effie Kats dress, styled with Swarovski jewelry, was a delight, but the been-everywhere-done-that silhouette wasn’t quite ready for the limelight.
Aja Naomi King: This Reformation ‘Carmelina’ dress wasn’t ready for its close-up either. Satin is tricky and doesn’t often photograph well, but the ruddy-blush colour and the fit here are both problematic.
Hailey Bieber: This rock-chic Saint Laurent micro-mini tuxedo dress was right in Hailey’s wheelhouse.
Bella Thorne: The dark-haired star donned a not-so-innocent white Georges Hobeika Resort 2019 gown with piles of Swarovski jewels.
Madeline Brewer: This whole ensemble was just odd to me — from the massive plunge neckline and crimson carnation of this Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini Spring 2020 dress, to the black ankle-monitor heels that had no business being paired with the look.
Mackenzie Foy: The starlet showed us that gothic romance can work — if done right. I found the dark-princess mood of this Romona Keveža frock to be rather enchanting, with an oxblood lip and Stuart Weitzman sandals to top it off.
Sydney Sweeney: I can practically see the eye-rolling happening right now with the overplayed, sexy Grecian goddess spirit of this Paolo Sebastian plisse gown.
Hunter Schafer: One of the most experimental looks of the night, this Rick Owens ensemble needed to go back to the drawing board.
Janet Mock: Despite all the dazzle of this embellished Paco Rabanne top and skirt, it fell rather flat.
Kat Graham: There was a regal flair to this Etro velvet, embroidered gown, but it almost seemed too heavy and serious for its own good.
Katherine McNamara: She looked to the archives for this Ulyana Sergeenko Fall 2015 Couture gown, but I couldn’t look past the confetti boob.
Billie Lourd: You know the earrings are big when they can command attention away from a Beetlejuice-striped Louis Vuitton Resort 2020 two-piece set.
Jaime King: This Cucculelli Shaheen beaded gown wouldn’t be out of place at a Roaring ’20s costume party, as it brought forth the vintage opulence that Jaime loves. She paired it with Sophia Webster shoes.
Jamie Chung: The decadence of the pouf sleeves in this Honor Fall 2020 gown definitely didn’t need the necklace. But, I do love the dress’s aubergine hue contrasted with the jade-green earrings.
