Covering the 2021 Golden Globe Awards has been particularly challenging this year.
Usually all the images come from the same place, but with the pandemic meaning that many attendees were confined to lockdown regulations in several different countries, this meant a lot of picture sourcing on my part.
Here is a quick rundown of some of the other attendees who caught my eye.
Vanessa Kirby: The actress continues her simple yet elegant streak wearing a custom Gucci black velvet halter strap dress. The red lip ensured this look held my interest.
Nicola Coughlan: We have yet another whimsy look from Molly Goddard, which sees the ‘Bridgerton’ Irish actress channeling unabashedly femininity thanks to the tulle, voluminous silhouette and sugary pastel shade.
Salma Hayek Pinault: When I first saw Salma wearing this Alexander McQueen red dress with Harry Winston jewels there was an element of “I’ve seen this movie.’
Nevertheless, this is a gorgeous colour and classic style for Salma that continues to serve her well. Stepping outside the box rarely works for Salma so despite the déjà vu, I’ll take it.
Celeste: The British singer-songwriter wore a Gucci black velvet and multi-colour striped sequin gown with Gucci jewels.
The left side of my brain is telling me that the green opera gloves we a step too far, but the right side of my brain is telling me that the look wouldn’t have been so unique without them.
Julia Garner: The actress wore a Prada ivory gown embellished with crystal and jais stone embroidery which feels like a beautiful throwback.
I feel this look will be mainly judged on the deep v-neck.
Verdura jewels, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and a Jennifer Behr bobby pin completed her look.
Eiza González: The ‘I Care A Lot’ actress wore a Versace Pre-Fall 2021 column evening dress with statement accents along the bust and neckline. I think this dress wouldn’t have been a Versace dress without these details.
Bryce Dallas Howard: The ‘Jurassic World’ is a beautiful woman, but this Temperley London Fall 2019 dress wasn’t at all flattering on her.
She said on Instagram “As many of you know, I love the sustainability of consignment fashion and often find secondhand pieces for press. When I found out I was presenting at the #GoldenGlobes , I immediately went back to my tried and true friend, @therealreal.”
As commendable as that statement is, she should’ve hired a stylist.
Catherine Zeta-Jones: The Welsh actress looked beautiful wearing a custom-made, off-the-shoulder black Dolce & Gabbana gown with Swarovski crystal detailing.
The only thing missing for me were some emerald jewels to enhance the wow factor.
Shira Haas: Style wise, I have been really excited by the ‘Unorthodox’ actress, but on this occasion I was left underwhelmed by this Chanel Spring 2021 strapless black mini-dress with a sheer overlay.
This fell really flat for me, even with the Chanel Fine Jewelry.
Angela Bassett: You can always rely on the ‘Black Panther’ actress to make a dramatic entrance, which she did wearing a custom Dolce & Gabbana gown that some might say has a lot going on with the draping, sprinkled embellishments, and feather trim around the shoulder and thigh-high slit.
But it’s nothing that Angela couldn’t handle like a pro.
Graziela jewels provided the finishing touch.
Awkwafina: This might be an unpopular opinion, but I really enjoyed this Gucci copper, pale pink and soft yellow trippy wave sequined dress that showcases the brand’s continued love for all things ’70s.
It was also lovely to see the actress smile here.
Daisy Edgar-Jones: The British actress attended her first Golden Globes wearing a daisy applique dress from the Chanel Spring 2021 Haute Couture collection.
This is the kinda fun with fashion that I wished Shira was having at this event.
Maya Rudolph: Is it me, or does Maya Rudolph only ever wear this style of dress on the red carpet?
I’m having a heavy dose of deja vu seeing her in this Valentino Spring 2021 design.
Amy Poehler: I expected the standard suit from the host, so I was pleasantly surprised by this fun black sequin Moschino custom dress styled with Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Laila Ring’ platforms.
Tina Fey: A suit is also what I expected from Tina, but she floored me by opting to only wear the structured blazer of this Versace Resort 2021 look with polka dot tights.
Isla Fisher: I love the ’80s vibe which is oozing from this Alex Perry draped dress, but I can’t say that I love this bright pink hue and red hair combo.
Green would have been my first choice.
Jamie Lee Curtis: I think we all need to take a moment to really take in just how stunning Jamie looks in this yellow Alex Perry gown.
Susan Kelechi Watson: My list of favourites is long, and definitely features Susan in Georges Hobeika Fall 2020 Couture. Between the ombre hues, the embellishment and the fringe detailing I am in awe. Which has taken me somewhat by surprise as I’m not usually a fan of restrictive pieces.
Jane Levy: The nominated actress wore an Oscar de la Renta Resort 2021 mermaid gown which was interesting, but I didn’t understand what there is a white lining on the skirt in both the look book and on her version. Surely whatever was used to line the top half should apply to the bottom, but this is probably due to the skirt needing a certain fabric to hold the structure.
Michelle Pfeiffer: Watching the show from a hotel room, Michelle made sure the most glamorous part of her Valentino Spring 2021 look was front and center.
Rosie Perez: I love the length added to Rosie’s custom Christian Siriano Spring 2020 beaded fringe gown. I feel like this dress would be even more impressive in motion.
Olivia Colman: I look at the British actress in this Armani Privé Spring 2021 suit, and while it might not excite many, this suit is far superior to most of her looks 2019 awards season run.
I think she looks outstanding here. Very sharp and polished.
Messika jewels completed her look.
Sarah Hyland: This event without Sarah Hyland is like having a knife without fork; the two just go together. She was pretty much red all over. Not only did she wear a red Monique Lhuillier dress on the red carpet, but she also gave her red hair a red carpet debut.
Storm Reid: This Oscar de la Renta PreFall 2021 look is giving me the three P’s; playful, pretty and punchy.
With so much colour imbued in this frock, she really didn’t need any other accessory.
