NEW YORK — The stars returned for the Golden Globes’ return to television on Tuesday, walking the soggy gray carpet in relatively predictable looks — with a few notable exceptions.
A look at the fashion from the 80th Golden Globes:
NO MORE WORM
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.
Also in silver? Angela Bassett with Jessica Chastain in a sparkly body hugger in a checkerboard and starburst design.
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 black tuxedo with glittering jewels.
Elvis, also known as Austin Butler, entered the building in a traditional black tuxedo, while Andrew Garfield went for an orange, open-collared black shirt underneath.
Donald Glover was practically in PJs. His comfortable shirt and loose pants were white. His tuxedo jacket was black. The look was Saint Laurent.
“I just want to be comfortable,” he said.
Sheryl Lee Ralph of ‘Abbott Elementary’ in blue jewel tone with heavy embellishment led the train procession with her high neckline. It was from Aliette. 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.
Women kept their jewelry 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 by Rodarte. 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 wore a crimson tuxedo by Christian Siriano and high heeled silver pumps.
Anya Taylor-Joy opted for a sunny yellow two-piece look with a tiny bandeau top. Margot Robbie was dressed in pale pink Chanel embellished with beads and feathers, while Lily James went old school Hollywood in 50 meters of red fabric. Her look was custom Versace, a column dress with exaggerated hips and a strapless top that crisscrossed at the waist.
Jenna Ortega also went for a crisscross look in a fresh, pleated copper color. It was Gucci paired with necklaces from Tiffany & Co.
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.
THE ONES IN BLACK
Cast: Jennifer Coolidge, Quinta Brunson, Jamie Lee Curtis, Natasha Lyonne. There was a healthy showing of black looks.
Emma D’Arcy also donned a black, pant and skirt combo, finished off with indigo gloves. They wore heavy dark makeup with a single blue tear streak under one eye.
“It wasn’t sustainable,” D’Arcy, who is non-binary, told E! forced to present herself as a woman in the field.
