InStyle Golden Globes After Party Red Carpet Roundup

Posted by Rachel Watkins
InStyle Golden Globe After Party

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.

    The pattern and shimmery texture of Laura’s dress holds my attention. Looks good. Not feeling anything else.

  2. MissHebble January 9, 2020 at 7:35 am #

    That confetti boob is the worst!

  3. Guest January 8, 2020 at 7:05 pm #

    Wow. Nikki Reed looks very gaunt.

    “Confetti boob”! Hee! You may owe me a new keyboard, FC.

    Kat Graham’s Etro should have been given to an A-Lister. That could have been a Moment on someone else.

    Jamie Chung never disappoints. I love Sophia Bush but she can do better.

    We’ve seen that Michael Kors dress on Rachel a million times at this point.

    This event proves most A-List brands won’t dress them because it’s a B-List/C-List party. Fair enough. I just think you can do it right, like Jamie Chung and Kat Graham.

    There are some cute looks here. I think the first three are pretty good—if nothing spectacular. I do love this chartreuse on Jasmine Sanders—really elevates her tan. And Jamie King always looks fabulous. I think she’s another one of those celebs who is keyed into her style and typically delivers on it successfully.

    It’s still staggering to me that anyone will dress Bella Thorne, let alone invite her to anything. She just doesn’t look healthy. Or clean.

  7. Originalmeme January 8, 2020 at 2:19 pm #

    So many bad dresses. I like Mackenzie, Rachel and Nikki. Jasmine, Aja, and Sydney are simply awful.

    Kat’s dress is stunning but not right for this event.

    Hunter Schafer = WDOTY worty

  9. Guest January 8, 2020 at 1:12 pm #

    Nikki’s gown is probably my favourite here, I’m ignoring the clutch. Laverne’s wig is still awful but the dress is probably her best outfit. I would have liked Jasmine’s gown if didn’t have the high slit which felt even more unnecessary given that the dress is sheer.
    I like Kiki and Laura’s dresses though I might have liked more dressy outfits. Mostly ‘blah’ sentiment overall about the rest.

  10. Guest January 8, 2020 at 12:50 pm #

    Laverne looks fantastic. Her dress would’ve trumped most of the looks that made it to the Globes red carpet. I like Nicole and Nikki as well. Kat is dressed for the wrong event…

  11. Sharon M January 8, 2020 at 12:23 pm #

    There are a lot of awful dresses here…I like Jessica Alba’s and Mackenzie Foy’s looks, but then I saw Sydney Sweeney, Hunter Schafer, Madeline Brewer, Jasmine Sanders and too many others to mention.

  12. Guest January 8, 2020 at 12:02 pm #

    Kiki Layne, she is working that (somewhat questionable) dress. Love the sandals. Kat Graham, I think I am really in the mood for velvet, I like the look. Rachel Brosnahan, merlots, burgundies, dark reds reconcile me a bit to her blonde hair, which looks nicely tousled here.

      My 1st thought when I saw Kat’s velvet gown was actually wow, striking gown (even though, perhaps, it belongs on a more mature woman). And I also share your thoughts on Glenn Close’s blue velvet gown, it was so impeccably fitted.

  13. Catarina_M January 8, 2020 at 11:50 am #

    So much tackiness and cheap looking dresses in this group! Nikki Reed is my favourite, although she looks unhappy…

  14. Guest January 8, 2020 at 11:06 am #

    Love Bella’s gown!

  15. Noor January 8, 2020 at 9:35 am #

    Many looks to think.

    Sarah as the first, the bottom part of her gown is ill fitting. Acc. to fit bodice that shapless bottom doesn’t work well.

    For Jessica I’m sure she has worn 10s of similar dresses like this. This make no difference. Even with silver touch I feel she grabbed it from her closet & it’s old.

    Jasmine reminds me not JLo but Beyonce. Beauty look so much on point with the light green. I wish if the slit wasn’t that long. It’s all about train. Somehow I find the seams aren’t neat.

    Taking about Bebe, I like her there. So Nikki. It’s rare to see Nikki’s princess+goddess moments. Wish if the shoes were sandals.

    Bella has the sexiest face among all of them. But the two slits of the dress & the too much accessories cheapen the whole look. As if she’s in the wrong party.

    Kat sure has no invitations. It’s not event appropriate. I mean long sleeve high neck floor length velvet gown? Sure she could be the BD with a different hair and in a different event. Not saying she’s ugly 🙂

    Jaime and Jamie. Both looks good. I didn’t notice the necklace at once as the green earring does a good job with that lovely dress.

  16. Kat January 8, 2020 at 9:32 am #

    To start with a positive: I loved all your coverage of the GG’s Catherine and team.

    However, I was really not a fan of many looks (either red carpet or after party) from the GG’s. Per and ‘s comments: could be ill-fitting outfits, bad lighting, or bad makeup. But I also wonder if something went wrong behind-the-scenes? A few attendees (that normally look fab) look uncharacteristically ill/gaunt/awkward/unhappy.
    Hoping this is a fluke, and people are feeling much better that they looked at this event. Fingers crossed.

      Thank you xxx

  17. Guest January 8, 2020 at 6:55 am #

    Not really wowed by most of these looks. A lot of ill-fitting dresses. My favs were Mackenzie Foy and Jaime King.

  18. Guest January 8, 2020 at 6:48 am #

    With Laura H and Ashley M as the best of the bunch, Jamie C, who should have skipped that style of necklace, Laura H, Ashley M, and Jessica A all look great. The rest mostly range from overdone (Laverne C) to trashy tacky (Jasmine S and La La A) to dated (Rachel B) to poorly executed. Tika S’s look good have been great but the styling is pretty bad. Are dyed to match shoes now a thing? Kiki L’s dress is ugly — she wears it well but the shoes are too much with it. Similar sandals but without the ankle vines would have been better.

  19. SarahS95 January 8, 2020 at 6:18 am #

    A lot of blah looks here – also whoever was doing the makeup or lighting at this event was not doing a good job my goodness

    Sarah Hyland’s dress is suffering from the same problem as Olivia Coleman’s and needs to be a little shorter so it doesn’t pouf up
    Laura Harrier looks gorgeous and ready to party one of my favourites of the bunch for sure!
    Despite the overdoneness of Sydney Sweeney’s outfit she does look good so I’ll give her that
    Jamie Chung looks gorgeous although that necklace is not needed

  20. Phee phee January 8, 2020 at 5:49 am #

    Mackenzie Foy looks fabulous. Its black but its so interesting to look at. And she styled it beautifully.Im surprisingly, most struck by her.
    Kikis sandals are amazing. But the dress may be too sheer for my liking.
    love Jessicas dress. She looks pretty and laidback.
    Laura looks ready to party!
    I love the color of Lavernes bright dress but that wig is so so wrong with it. It doesn’t work at all.
    Nikkis dress is gorgeous. Love the ombre effect. Agree about the clutch though. I find it too stark.
    kat Graham looks terrific. love the dress but def not for this party. I think it would of fit in better to a xmas gala. A more formal occasion.

  21. Guest January 8, 2020 at 5:17 am #

    Nikki Reed was best dressed for me. Surprisingly, I liked Madeline Brewer ‘s outfit though it could’ve done with a better shoe. Overall, there’s a lot of sub-par looks here.
