The Coolest Looks From The Golden Globes 2020 Red Carpet

We're kicking off awards season with the stand-out looks from the 77th annual Golden Globes


1/27

MARGOT ROBBIE

The actress, nominated for her role in Bombshell, looks relaxed and fresh in a contemporary look by, who else, Chanel. Despite the ensemble's simple lines, the intricate bustier top apparently took 225 hours of work to create according to reports, featuring 4,750 sequins and beads. It's a beautiful contrast with the satin crepe skirt, and the pockets are a nice touch too.

ANA DE ARMAS

Pockets: the must-have detail of this year's Golden Globes. Nominated for Knives out, the Cuban actress looks stunning in a deep blue sequinned gown by Ralph & Russo, accessorised with Tiffany & Co diamond drop earrings and a necklace working with the colour of her dress. Her perfectly-done classic red lip works to offset the whole look too.

GRETA GERWIG

The Little Women director goes for sleek sophistication in a black and white off-the-shoulder gown by Proenza Schouler, with glimmering side details that mirror her diamond necklace.

CYNTHIA ERIVO

Another star in black and white, Cynthia's Thom Browne gown apparently took about 800 hours of hand-beading, and the designer put her favourite flower, peonies, on the lining. Cynthia is nominated for Best Actress - Drama, for her role in Harriet.

ANDREW SCOTT

Three's a trend - Andrew Scott, known to many as 'Hot Priest' also went for a contrasting black and white ensemble with a cream tuxedo jacket, shirt and bowtie, and black trousers. He's nominated for the iconic Fleabag role.

ZOEY DEUTCH

Now for some colour: love this yolky yellow shade on actress Zoey Deutch. While it looks like a gown, she's actually wearing a jumpsuit by Fendi, and the voluminous sleeves add just enough drama while simple lines keep it from being overwhelming.

JOEY KING

Nominated for Best Actress - Miniseries or Television Film for her role in The Act, the young actress took a turn for the avant-garde in a sculptural Iris Van Herpen gown.

KIRSTEN DUNST

It's a tricky colour to pull off, especially if you're pale-skinned, but Kirsten looks lovely in a pale pink lacy gown by her close friends Laura and Kate Mulleavy, the designers behind Rodarte. The pop of orange lipstick works to save the look from being washed-out.

NAOMI WATTS

Naomi (or, more likely, her stylist) has a knack for choosing gowns that fit her perfectly for the red carpet, and this Armani dress is no different. The embellished fabric is gorgeous, as is the crossover neckline. Her hair and makeup is great too.

BILLY PORTER

The Pose star turned up in a white feathered train because of course he did. This look by designer Alex Vinash reportedly took three months to execute, and the train is removable which should make sitting down a whole lot easier.

LUCY BOYNTON

Lucy always manages to bring something different to red carpet dressing through her hair and makeup, and this occasion was no different. She wears a custom Louis Vuitton metallic silver gown complemented by equally statement-making eye makeup and platform shoes.

THOMASIN MCKENZIE

New Zealand's very own Thomasin looks lovely in an ethereal, romantic dusky blue Valentino gown, featuring layers of tulle. It's hard to see in this image but there are tiny diamantes throughout the dress which Thomasin matched with some gems scattered throughout her hair; a sweet detail.

BEANIE FELDSTEIN

Metallics and sequins are clearly a big trend for this year's Golden Globes carpet, and Beanie looks gorgeous in a navy Oscar de la Renta gown that encompasses both. Love the matching headband and earrings too. Beanie is nominated this year for her role in Booksmart.

JENNIFER ANNISTON

Of course Jen was going to wear black, but she does wear it better than almost everyone. Her gently sculptural, strapless gown is by Dior, paired with her signature tousled locks.

OLIVIA COLMAN

Quite a few voluminous-sleeved gowns on the red carpet this year, and Olivia wears hers well. She looks lovely in this deep red gown by New Zealand-born designer Emilia Wickstead; the structural high neck and train are a sophisticated finishing touch.

PHOEBE WALLER-BRIDGE

It might be black jumpsuit-withdrawal (if you've seen Fleabag, you'll know) but I love seeing Phoebe in a suit. This one's by Ralph & Russo, and thanks to the intricate fabric she could keep it simple otherwise, baring some skin up-top and wearing curls in her short hair.

ZOE KRAVITZ

Zoe always looks cooler-than-cool, and was another attendee putting her own spin on monochrome with a contrasting polka-dot dress by Saint Laurent.

MICHELLE WILLIAMS

Michelle's red carpet style is usually just the right amount of quirky, and she didn't disappoint this time with a beautiful light coral gown by Louis Vuitton, featuring an interesting blue detail.

BUSY PHILLIPS

Michelle's bestie Busy looks fantastic, tapping into the sequin trend with a burgundy Monique Lhuillier gown that fits her like a glove.

CHARLIZE THERON

You definitely couldn't say this year's Globes red carpet was boring, and I actually love this zingy green colour on Charlize. Her gown is by Dior Couture.

RENEE ZELLWEGER

There's no denying Renee looks fantastic in this pale blue Armani gown. Nominated (and tipped to win) for her lead role in Judy, Renee keeps it simple otherwise with shimmering pumps and a chunky snake bracelet. The light-catching edging detail on the dress is lovely too.

GUGU MGBATHA-RAW

More sequins! This golden Gucci dress on actress Gugu is a great colour on her, and the ankle-skimming length keeps it fashion-forward. Love the warm orangey lip to top it off.

JODIE COMER

Unsurprisingly, it was a little difficult to find a good picture of this dress but I'm very into the emerald green drama of this Mary Katrantzou gown. Would absolutely love to know what vehicle Jodie travelled in to the awards to keep it so crease free.

KATILYN DENVER

More pockets! More big sleeves! The Booksmart star looks resplendent in an intricate patterned gown by Valentino.

SHAILENE WOODLEY

Going for a dark and feline beauty look, Shailene's glittering black and blue Balmain dress has her firmly on the dark side - in a good way.

NICOLE KIDMAN

Breaking up all the sequins and monochrome, there were a few stars looking resplendent in red, with Nicole Kidman knocking it out of the park in Versace.

HELEN MIRREN

Helen looked equally divine, sporting her signature off-the-shoulder neckline that suits her so well and a deep rouge Dior gown paired with some pretty impressive Harry Winston jewels - nearly $4 million worth.
