The Best of the Golden Globes 2020

Took a writing vacation! But now it’s a new decade! New awards season! New red carpet! LET’S GOOOOO!

But first, a quick sidenote- I feel like people kind of lost their minds this round. J Lo. Kerry. Rooney. Michelle. GWYNETH. And literally the FIRST time I’ve ever hated what Charlize has worn. There was a whole lotta NO going on and it hurt. Maybe it’s all the very legal weed going around but my take is that folks were feeling a little too … creative? Free? So in comparison, my picks are going to feel awfully safe FYI.

Ana de Armas in Schiaparelli (or is it Ralph and Russo?! Have literally seen both designers named multiple times!)

Love a sparkle. Love a full gown. Love some navy. Did you know Classic Navy is Pantone’s color of 2020? I’m a fan. Ana’s like the new Penelope Cruz to me. Absolutely cannot WAIT to see her on the press circuit for James Bond next year, and loved her in KNIVES OUT.

 

Margot Robbie in Chanel

It HaS pOcKeTs!!!! I mean, you know that’s kinda why I love it. But the sequin detailing on the top of this Chanel creation is also super, super gorgeous. I also love the simple silhouette. Margot is always understated with a bit of an edgy sparkle, and I like that I can count on that.

 

Zoey Deutch in Fendi

If you were bored, now you’re not. This is maybe my favorite color to see on a red carpet-  tropical, canary yellow. I dig the seventies style and the easy feel to this gown, too. It has a lounge vibe, like an extra fancy hostess giving a really groovy party. I would perhaps change her hair styling, but overall I absolutely loved this.

Is the silhouette my favorite? Maybe not. But the color and the texture … come on. You know this emerald shade is more fun than anything else you’re seeing out there. And again, details: pairing it with that yellow feathered clutch was genius, and on other pictures you may notice her hot pink sandals. And I do love that statement sleeves are having a moment.

 

Scarlett Johansson in Dior

This has really been a heck of a year for Scarlett. Her look at the premiere of AVENGERS: ENDGAME was maybe the best she’s ever looked. I was stunned. But this is another angle for her; it feels so classic movie star. We’ve been watching her for so long in all these comic movies that we’ve sort of forgotten that she’s a truly great actress beyond her catsuit, and she has been for a really long time. This dress speaks to that.

Best of the 2019 Golden Globes

Besides the smattering of celeb appearances that have already occurred this week – the Palm Springs Film Festival, Art of Elysium Gala, and BAFTA LA tea party – the Globes are kind of the first real REAL “back to work” moment for a lot of celeb hair/makeup artists and stylists. And I’m always keeping closer tabs on them than the celebs they work on, so cheers to a great 2019 for all the glam teams! Bang up job as always.

I’ll admit I’ve seen pretty much zero of the films and shows nominated for tonight’s awards (well, two movies and two TV shows to be exact) so in case you need any reminders, I am here for the red carpet. Here we go!

1. Anne Hathaway in Elie Saab

This was just fun to me. The print, the length- and there’s a high slit up the front that makes it super fun! And I love Anne back in a long-term relationship with her long hair. It made me sort of sad that she went through her whole special Les Misérables awards season with her short hair, but oh well- no short hair, no face-melting Fantine moment to earn an Oscar. But here we are now, doing Miranda Priestly very proud I’m sure. Makeup by Beau Nelson, hair by Lacy Redway.

2. Rosamund Pike in Givenchy

Rosamund’s grandma can officially *not* give her grief for going out without a jacket. She took a jacket with her, Grandma. She’s fine (though her hair may or may not be wet- the other reason grandmas cite as responsible for an early death). Also, love a severe look with severe brows and a severe center part. All about that. Well done. Hair by Bryce Scarlett, makeup by Mélanie Inglessis.

3. Constance Wu in Vera Wang

So unexpected! Love the nude/orange combination. I anticipate seriously great things from Constance and her team this whole awards season. The whole cast of Crazy Rich Asians, I’m sure, will knock it out of the park (I mean, Michelle Yeoh? Please. Been obsessed since Memoirs of a Geisha). The CRA press and premiere circuits were dazzling just like the film, and I imagine there will be more looks that give a nod and a wink to the movie’s over-the-time opulence. Bring it. Makeup by Molly Greenwald, hair by Marissa Marino.

4. Rachel Weisz in Céline

At first glance the dress was not my fave (and it’s now the controversial Hedi Slimane at the helm for Céline, who’s managed to justifiably raise some eyebrows with his new … “interpretation” of the brand), but it’s always in the details for me. The delicate Cartier art deco choker, the deep chocolate hair, the strong brow, the blotted lip- the dress brings the little details together in a way that makes sense. Also, it’s really hard to make Rachel Weisz look bad. Hair by Kevin Ryan, makeup unknown.

5. Danai Gurira in Rodarte

And now for something completely different. I’ve been watching Planet Earth II and I can’t help but be reminded of all the electric-hued tropical birds we see in the jungle when I behold color and texture like this. Or Danai looks like she could jump in the ocean and turn into some sort of beautiful fish. And I loved the contrast of her red-orange with Lupita’s cobalt blue gown. You know I gotta say it … Wakanda forever! Makeup by Tym Buacharern, hair by Larry Sims.

6. Charlize Theron in Dior

I mean, duh. I promise my inclusion of Charlize on all my lists is never obligatory. I really, truly look forward to her looks probably the most consistently out of anyone (besides Jennifer Connelly, who we barely see these days anyhow). Charlize is such a giant golden goddess Olympian statue that basically anything – avant gardé, classic, glamorous – is executed with perfect ease by herself and her team. I’ve yet to see anything on her (and granted, it’s mostly been Dior) that’s left a bad taste in my mouth. If anything, I’ve felt that her team could perhaps just push the envelope with her a bit (and again, that would probably mean stepping out of the Dior contract). But anyhow, all that to say, yes, I love Charlize’s look. Again. Hair by Adir Abergel, makeup by Kate Lee.

There were so many other gorgeous looks, but I was missing the Margot Robbie magic tonight. Surely we’ll see her soon. Let me know your faves! xo, MR
