A plethora of colours and silhouettes usually adorn the red carpets to define trends and fads for the coming season. 75th Golden Globes sure set a trend too, one that made a statement louder than trends. Amidst a society taking up its armour to finally fight gender inequality, with #metoo and #timesupnow campaigns, celebrities stood in solidarity to show their support for the cause as well.
You could spot them everywhere – celebrities old and new – wearing all-black outfits and bringing renowned activists alongside to the event. Interestingly, the lack of colours did little to reduce the glam and beauty of the show, otherwise swathed in a sea of black.
In addition to black, celebrities appeared to agree upon a few other trends too. Here they are –
Emma Stone and Saoirse Ronan were spotted flaunting one-shoulder dresses. You could call it a “Winning Trend”, considering both Emma and Saoirse grabbed an award each for their respective roles in Battle of the Sexes and Lady Bird.
Statement back dresses
The deep and plunging necks have always been popular, and this time was no exception with some making their statements with back necks and backless dresses.
Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), and Dakota Johnson were seen sporting the style with much flair and elegance.
A few stars shined their way through the red carpet in their hard-to-miss sequined dresses.
Allison Williams wore hers with contrast detailing on the bodice, while Isabelle Huppert caught attention with a head-to-toe sequined dress.
Celebrities like Hale Berry and Kate Hudson made their marks, yet again, in sheer. Quite a sexy & stunning way to declare their bold take on the causes they support, we say.
The black code did not just apply to the ladies. The gentlemen bravely extended options, otherwise considered limited in case of tuxedos. From the fabrics they chose to the way they paired their suits, many managed to set a bold tone to the event. Here are a few looks that inspire –
Subtle textures on suits
Chris Hemsworth dropped the tie, and wore instead a jacquard suit with paisley patterns all over. Darren Criss wore one with a subtle camo texture on it. Both men stood in the spotlight in style.
Velvet tuxedos were quite the rage at the Golden Globes with Hollywood’s best sporting them with much ease. The slight sheen of the fabric made Sterling K. Brown and James Franco stand out immaculately.
Black on black suits
The favourite combo most men preferred at the event was a black shirt, black suit and a black bow-tie. Justin Timberlake and Timothée Chalamet looked dapper sporting this look.
Red carpet events may have a history of men and women dressing up, one better than the other to stand out, but this time they dressed to hold hands and make a statement together.
Whether they wore fine elegance in sheer and lace dresses, or showed a more stronger side to them in tailored suits and blazers over dresses, as diverse and unique as they were, their message was united, and crystal clear.
