Last year’s Golden Globe saw attendees grace the black colour in honour of the TimesUp movement, protesting sexual harassment and gender inequality in Hollywood. But at the end of last year, the red carpets were flooded with the anything goes fashion. We’ve taken a moment to make wish list of what this year’s nominees should wear-as well as look at some of their past fashion wins.
Past awards ceremonies have showcased an overwhelming number of fashion moments that continue to stand the test of time, even several decades later. The first Globes was held in 1944. Throwing it back to 1957, focus was on Elizabeth Taylor who went all out with an embroided gown, tiara and door knocker earrings; in 1962, Marilyn Monroe accepted the Henrietta Award in a black sequinted style. More iconic styles were worn in other awards
Later on in the 1990s, gowns were pared back and given more severe, straight-down silhouettes. (Minimalism and clean lines were all the rage.) For instance: In ’99, Angelina Jolie wore a simple tank dress covered in silver sequins. (A woman ahead of her time, she even wore a square-toed sandals with it.) In the early 2000s, starlets began favoring flowy, romantic fits and dainty shoulder straps. Take Halle Berry in 2003, who slipped on one of her best red carpet looks to date, a pastel blue number with form-hugging ruching in all the right places.
Fashion got more stylish in the 2000s, Beyonce wore a glittery gold dress by Elie Saab in 2007, a fitting choice given she was nominated for her turn in the movie Dreamgirls. Reese Witherspoon brought back short hemlines the same year. Recent years,we have seen celebrities like Lupita Nyong’o wear classy red Ralph Lauren cape dresses or, in 2016, Brie Larson opted for a gold halter gown by Calvin Klein…
This year, we might see more stylish dresses for the various awards ceremonies that will be up. Some vintage styled, and some modernly styled.
