Golden Globes fashion: The stars return for the wet carpet


NEW YORK — The stars returned Tuesday for the televised return of the Golden Globes, walking the wet teal carpet in relatively predictable looks — with a few notable exceptions.

A look at fashion from the 80th Golden Globes:

Heidi Klum, not long after her Halloween worm appearance, appeared in a towering silver flare with a feather embellishment draped over one shoulder as the crowd got a break from the rain that lashed Southern California.

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

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

Abbott Elementary’s Sheryl Lee Ralph in jewel blue with chunky embellishments led the parade of trains in her turtleneck look. Viola Davis also opted for a body-hugging, jewel-toned blue.

Chloe Flower, who will perform a song during the show, went in a long train in a white, slightly decorated bag.

Niecy Nash-Betts wore a lovely deep purple dress with chunky glitter paired with a wide shoulder coat. Both were done by Dolce & Gabbana.

There were also healthy displays 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 one-shoulder ivory look trimmed in gold. Her edgy look included a high side slit.

With exceptions like Domingo, jewels are kept to a minimum.

Pregnant Abby Elliott chose a burnt orange with sequins all over by Pamella Roland. Her lamp had long blouson sleeves and a high collar.

Jenny Slate was in emerald green. She told E! her short dresses with a large flower around the neck which she aimed for “a woman who will turn into a magical plant”.

Among the standout looks was the E! host Laverne Cox in a sexy blue and silver goddess dress, with old Hollywood hair in a bob. Her look was vintage John Galliano.

Billy Porter walked in a crimson tuxedo dress and tall, thick-heeled silver boots.

Anya Taylor-Joy chose a sunny yellow two-piece look with a small bandeau top.

Sepideh Moafi, an Iranian-American actress, wore a black sequined look with special details. She worked 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 of them is this flower, which represents the flowering of a new Iran during this revolution.”

She was referring to the months-long wave of protests in Iran that have challenged the country’s ruling theocracy.
