The 2024 annual Golden Globe Awards provided plenty of standout style moments, from Margot Robbie in ‘Barbie’-inspired pink Armani Privé to Timothée Chalamet in sparkly black Celine.
As the first award show of the season and the first since 2023’s Hollywood strikes, the 81st Golden Globes will no doubt help set the standard for what we can expect from the red carpet in 2024. And if the scene at the Beverly Hilton tonight is any indication, we can anticipate plenty of showstopping Schiaparelli (straight off the runway and archival), red-hot gowns in shades of ruby, and unexpected headpieces that feel a little bit wicked. The evening’s intrigue was not just in the anticipation of winners, but also in the magnificent display of fashion that captured hearts and headlines alike. The red carpet was transformed into a runway of fantasies, with sequins glittering and stunning forms taking front stage.
The top-nominated film Barbie lost in the key categories at this year’s Golden Globes presentation, which was hosted by comedian Jo Koy, whereas Oppenheimer won for Best Motion Picture, Drama, Best Actor for Cillian Murphy, and Best Director for Christopher Nolan.
Some of the evening’s most eye-catching fashion moments? They came from celebrities like Margot Robbie, who leaned into Barbie style with her sparkly pink Armani gown and tulle stole. Red was also the colour of the night, as seen on Danielle Brooks, who wore an Old Hollywood Moschino look (complete with a dramatic stole), and Julianne Moore, who wore a structured and strapless Bottega Veneta gown.
The red carpet evolved into more than just a prelude to the Oscars; it became a canvas on which stars painted their tales in fabric, colour, and design. The 81st Golden Globes red carpet was more than simply a procession of exquisite outfits; it was a celebration of uniqueness, innovation, and Hollywood’s eternal enchantment.
Margot Robbie, known for her bold fashion choices, rocked the red carpet in a hot pink sequin Giorgio Armani Privé gown, complete with a feather boa. This Barbie-inspired look, a nod to the 1977 SuperStar Barbie’s 50th anniversary, showcased Robbie’s commitment to fashion creativity.
Nominee Timothée Chalamet turned heads in a Celine Homme by Hedi Slimane embroidered jacket, worn over black top and pants, paired with Chelsea boots. While he posed for pictures solo on the red carpet, inside, he shared a memorable moment, sitting next to and sharing a kiss with Kylie Jenner, adding a touch of unexpected excitement to the star-studded evening.
Billie Eilish attended the 81st Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. She made a stylish statement on the red carpet, wearing a Willy Chavarria skirt set with thrifted Mary Jane shoes. The 22-year-old singer accessorised her look with an oversized black blazer, a light blue Peter Pan collar shirt, and Anita Ko jewellery. Eilish’s outfit was a trendy and cool-girl take on the red carpet, and she completed her look with a beige pleated skirt and a ribbon. During her acceptance speech for her award, she thanked her brother Finneas, her co-star Margot Robbie, and the film’s creators.
Jennifer Lopez presented a captivating sight in a custom rosette-covered Nicole + Felicia Couture gown and Maison Boucheron jewels. While Affleck played the role of a presenter, it was Lopez who nearly stole the show with her impeccable sense of style and grace.
Dua Lipa graced the event as both a presenter and a nominee for Best Original Song, donning a bespoke black velvet Schiaparelli dress. The dress was adorned with a sequence of golden “bones” on the bodice, complemented by a billowy bustle skirt. Her look was further elevated with a Tiffany & Co. necklace from 1962, highlighting her unique and trendsetting approach to fashion.
Taylor Swift embodied the essence of her highly awaited rerelease “Reputation (Taylor’s Version).” She dazzled in a sparkly snake-green dress complemented by multiple pieces from De Beers and green leather Christian Louboutin pumps.
Nominee Selena Gomez radiated joy on the red carpet, and rightfully so, in a vibrant red Giorgio Armani dress with an asymmetrical hemline. The dress featured black rosette-accented cutouts, perfectly paired with patent leather Christian Louboutin pumps and adorned with plenty of Bulgari diamonds.
Barry Keoghan made a bold statement in a stunning custom Louis Vuitton ensemble. His outfit from the Spring-Summer 2024 collection featured a red wool evening jacket in heritage Damier, paired with sharp red tailored trousers and a crisp white rounded-collar shirt adorned with pearl buttons. Keoghan’s accessory game was on point, including a chic golden belt chain, a pearl necklace, and Tiffany & Co. earrings.
