Our 5 Favorite Looks from the 2020 Golden Globes Red Carpet

The fashion did NOT disappoint.

By: Camille Freestone

The beauty of red carpet fashion is that it’s so not relatable, which is exactly why it’s so entertaining. Watching celebrities glide down the 77th Golden Globes red carpet adorned with CHANEL couture gowns, Harry Winston diamonds, and Jimmy Choo pumps while you sit in sweatpants on your couch is escapism at its finest. While we will likely not directly translate this year’s gowns and jumpsuits into our own wardrobes, it is possible to pull trends that can transcend red carpets to a ready-to-wear level.

The stars were unafraid to embrace Fashion with a capital F this year. The rule seemed to be either go strapless or be sure to make your sleeves count, with everything from Jodie Comer’s edgy poufs to Cate Blanchett’s butterfly sleeves. There was a contingent of sultry black shades and dark metallics, like those of Ana de Armas, Kerry Washington, and Margaret Qualley juxtaposed by ultra-feminine silhouettes and hues from Gwyneth Paltrow, Kaitlyn Dever, and Kirsten Dunst. The holiday spirit still seemed to be hanging in the air with an abundance of red, green, and even a very special gift…in the form of JLo. While always a difficult choice with so many contenders, click through to see our top five looks of the night.


Kerry Washington

Washington somehow made a dazzling red carpet look out of a blazer and a silk skirt, and we are here for it. And who needs an actual shirt when you can wear a silver body chain instead? Thank you, Altuzarra, for blessing us with this look .

Zoey Deutch

We are obsessed with every aspect of Deutch’s bold yellow Fendi number, from the exaggerated sleeves to the fact that it’s actually a jumpsuit! The plunging neckline perfectly framed her stunning necklace—who do you have to know to get one of those?

Cate Blanchett

You can always count on Blanchett to show us something fantastic yet exceedingly elegant on the red carpet, and she did not disappoint. The Mary Katranzou gown was both strong and delicate with heavy jewels and a buttery yellow hue.

Joey King

Joey King went for it with this optical illusion of a dress. The eye-catching Iris Van Herpen number was expertly paired with minimal accessories to offset its maximalist nature.

Storm Reid

This Rosie Assoulin masterpiece was truly a work of art. The painterly gown was covered in a floral print with a lovely off-the-shoulder silhouette—perfect for the ravishing Reid!
