One of the most notable award shows that honors achievements in both film and television took place at the Beverly Hilton in Hollywood on Jan. 7. Celebrities’ looks were at an all-time high as the women — and finally, the men — of Hollywood curated ravishing, jaw-dropping, couture and custom fits worthy of an illustrious red carpet debut that a few Waves had something to say about.
A closer look at each outfit could are featured in the article from Vogue that provides a photo and designer.
This ceremony featured A-list celebrities and newcomers ready to take home the gold, draped in the finest ensembles the world of fashion had to offer this season. Celebrities veered from the usual gowns and tuxedos and challenged the expectations of classic Hollywood ceremony, giving the audience a modern twist with striking color palettes, classic elegance and accessories galore.
The stars graced the red carpet which paved the way for a sparkly spectacle of a night at the Beverly Hilton with sequins, studded garments and stunning gowns. Dua Lipa, nominated for a Golden Globe for the song “Dance The Night Away” in “Barbie,” served the night away as she turned heads in an elegant black and gold Schiaparelli dress.
The pop star wore a sleek, black, velvet bustier with the signature Schiaparelli skeleton, accented with vibrant gold and an impressively pinched waist and topped off with a jaw-dropping, archival Tiffany golden beryl necklace. This dress was a perfect blend of sultry and brooding — overall, one of the best looks from the British pop star.
A few students lent a critical eye on some of the night’s biggest looks, including senior Justin Gaspar who had much to say on this dress and the House of Schiaparelli.
“It looks amazing,” Gaspar said. “He [Daniel Roseberry, Schiaparelli’s creative director] plays with very cool, natural, mythical elements within his work.”
Though the dress looked amazing, it was hard for the pop star to sit in, according to this video taken at the show on Lipa’s Instagram — a worthy sacrifice to look that good.
“This dress alone is hard to sit in,” Gaspar said. “It’s a very firm material.”
The head Barbie in charge was also on the red carpet — Margot Robbie in Armani. The Golden Globe nominee dipped back into her Barbie dream closet and pulled out a sparkly pink dress with a plunging neckline and matching pink tulle stole, almost as if she never left the set of “Barbie.”
The next look comes from an actress who gave a painstakingly poignant performance in the quirky film “Poor Things” — Emma Stone. Dressed in Louis Vuitton, Stone sported a sparkly, neutral ensemble draped down to her feet, featuring dashing peonies and showing off Stone’s flattering features.
Senior Maurissa Dawson said, “It [Stone’s dress] accentuates her body that allowed her to be comfortable and confident.”
The Louis V looked flawless as Stone accepted the award on stage for her performance.
Next, Dawson looked at another actress who took home a Globe that night: newcomer Ayo Edebiri, from the hit Hulu series “The Bear,” in Prada. Dawson took a bit of a critical eye to the dress, noting it seems to have been made too long, making Edebiri look a little shorter.
“Give me some ankle — we are not in the Victorian period,” Dawson said.
Dawson did give Prada some praise by appreciating the train moment behind the pencil skirt but also noted the lack of comfort the dress seemed to provide.
“Whereas Stone’s dress was something she moved with, Edebiri’s dress is something she moved in,” Dawson said.
To think one can not go wrong with Prada — unfortunately, Dawson gave it a close to nada.
It is also worth highlighting some looks from the men of Hollywood. This night presented dashing men with stylish suits that flaunted their masculinity, steering away a bit from the usual suit and tie look men often choose.
“With that shirt open, it gives you the casual beach boy look,” Gaspar said. “The all-white looks super great on him.”
Colman Domingo also wowed the red carpet in a military, ultra-masc look from Louis Vuitton, accessorized with a golden broach and adorned with pearl buttons.
“The flare in his pants are super awesome,” Gaspar said. “He looks like a commander.”
Next, Gaspar took a look at another pantsuit: Lenny Kravitz in Alexander McQueen. The yassified rockstar turned heads when he showed some chest as well as some waist in this sleek jet-black suit with open flared pants and pointed heels.
“It’s a really cool piece because you can see the fluidness in terms of fashion and what men and women could wear,” Gaspar said. “His [Kravitz’] style speaks volumes as well, and it’s well-crafted.“
The Golden Globes recognized the achievements of the actors that lit up movie theaters and homes in 2023. They took their star power to the red carpet to turn heads and serve looks that will stay with viewers forever.
As this year’s award season continues, more dashing looks have been strutting across the red carpet, but this years Golden Globes was an excellent opener to the year’s fashions. Hollywood’s A-list names will be in the hottest outfits from the world’s most chic fashion houses — a remarkable sight to see.
