Golden Globes fashion: The stars return for the wet carpet


NEW YORK — The stars returned Tuesday for the Golden Globes’ return to television, walking the soggy gray carpet in relatively predictable looks — with a few notable exceptions.

A look at the fashion from the 80th Golden Globes:

Shortly after her Halloween worm look, Heidi Klum showed up in a sky-high silver sparkler with feather embellishment draped over one shoulder as the crowd treated themselves to relief from the rain that has been plaguing Southern California.

There were a lot of black suits and tuxedos. Eddie Redmayne showed up in brown with a huge silk flower on one lapel, courtesy of Valentino. Another highlight: Colman Domingo in a bejeweled black tuxedo.

Elvis, also known as Austin Butler, entered the building wearing a traditional black tuxedo.

Sheryl Lee Ralph of ‘Abbott Elementary’ in blue jewel tone with heavy embellishment led the train procession with her high neckline. Viola Davis also opted for a jewel-toned, flesh-toned blue.

Chloe Flower, who will perform a song during the show, went for a longer train in a white, slightly embellished number.

Niecy Nash-Betts wore a beautiful dark purple dress with heavy glitter, paired with a coat with big shoulders. Both were done by Dolce & Gabbana.

There was also a healthy display of gold, including adorable 19-year-old Bailey Bass from “Avatar: The Way of Water” in a long, delicately patterned look. Michelle Williams wore an ethereal, ivory one-shoulder look embellished with gold. Her tousled look included a high slit.

With exceptions like Domingo, jewelry was kept to a minimum.

Pregnant Abby Elliott went for burnt orange with all-over sequins by Pamella Roland. Her sparkler had long robe sleeves and a high neckline.

Jenny Slate was in emerald green. She told E! of her slip dress with a large flower around the neck, which she aimed at “a woman about to turn into a magical plant”.

Among the notable appearances was E! host Laverne Cox in a sexy blue and silver goddess gown with her hair in a curly old Hollywood bob. Her look was old John Galliano.

Billy Porter walked in a crimson tuxedo dress and high heels and faded silver shoes.

Anya Taylor-Joy opted for a sunny yellow two-piece look with a tiny bandeau top.

Sepideh Moafi, an Iranian American actress, wore a black sequined look with special features. She collaborated with Iranian designer Amir Taghi and Haus of Milad on the look.

“The dress has many stories,” she told The Associated Press, “but the most important one is this flower that represents the blooming new Iran during this revolution.”

She was referring to a month-long wave of protests in Iran challenging the country’s ruling theocracy.
