Where last year’s Golden Globes red carpet saw stars draped in all-black garments to take a stand with the Time’s Up movement, this year’s rendition moved past the black-and-white lines of blatant politics to flaunt colour once more.
This is not to say that the stars who walked the Golden Globe Awards 2019 red carpet have forgotten their stance against sexual harassment in Hollywood. In the past year, the visibility given to the issue has been so ingrained into our common psyche that the red carpet has achieved its goal and returned to its roots — a platform to celebrate the best in cinema and television, though many stars still donned bracelets with the slogan “Time’s Up x2” in solidarity with the movement.
Hosted by Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg, the Golden Globe Awards 2019 has spotlighted the likes of Bohemian Rhapsody for Best Motion Picture (Drama), with its star Rami Malek winning Best Actor for his impeccable performance of Freddie Mercury in the biopic, and Glenn Close bagging Best Actress for her work in novel-to-screen adaption, The Wife.
The Golden Globe Awards are obviously a massive deal for the cinematic industry, but it also is a moment where fashion takes centre stage on the red carpet. Before you celebrate the winners, we’ve picked out some of the best-dressed celebrities of the evening, so give these sartorial stunners a round of applause too for looking top-notch.
