A new year means a new awards season and the Golden Globes 2024 kicked things off in high style with a ceremony packed full of the world’s biggest film and television stars. Among the night’s biggest winners were Oppenheimer, which took home the gong for Best Film – Drama (as well as a Best Director nod for Christopher Nolan and Best Actor award for Cillian Murphy), while its release rival Barbie lost out to upcoming Emma Stone flick, Poor Things, in the Best Film – Musical or Comedy and Best Actress categories.
Over on the small screen, Succession beat out The Crown, The Last of Us and The Morning Show in the Best TV Series – Drama category – with awards also going to its stars Kieran Culkin, Sarah Snook and Matthew Macfadyen – while The Bear also cleaned up, taking home the Best TV Series – Musical or Comedy award as well as prizes for Jeremy Allen White and Ayo Edebiri.
But, this being the first major Hollywood bash of 2024, who were the winners and losers on the red carpet? Read on for the best looks from the Golden Globes 2024.
Natalie Portman in Dior Haute Couture
Nominated for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy for her role in May December, Natalie Portman chose an embroidered Dior Haute Couture gown for the Golden Globes ceremony.
Margot Robbie in Armani Privé
Barbie was up for multiple awards at this year’s Golden Globes, including a Best Actress nomination for Margot Robbie, so it only makes sense that she would reprise her hot pink press tour style for awards season. Inspired by the 1977 SuperStar Barbie doll’s 50th anniversary, as well as an Armani Privé look from the AW22 collection, this fuchsia sequinned gown and matching net boa stole the show.
Meryl Streep in Valentino
Hollywood legend Meryl Streep was every inch the icon in head-to-toe custom Valentino sequins. Nominated for Best Actress for her part in Only Murders in the Building, her cat eye sunglasses and dazzling diamond jewellery were the perfect finishing touches.
Emily Blunt in Alexander McQueen
Oppenheimer star Emily Blunt, who was up for Best Supporting Actress, bypassed the traditional ballgowns for a heavily embroidered tulle and sequin dress from the Alexander McQueen SS24 pre-collection, paired with Jimmy Choo sandals.
Rosamund Pike in Dior Haute Couture
Fresh from her starring turn in winter’s most talked about film, Saltburn, (for which she was also nominated for Best Supporting Actress), Rosamund Pike opted for a black lace Dior Haute Couture gown from the AW19 collection, a matching Philip Treacy headpiece and Boucheron jewellery.
Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture
Jennifer Lawrence, who up for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy for her lead role in No Hard Feelings, went for a classic look on the Golden Globes red carpet, pairing a draped navy velvet Dior Haute Couture gown with tumbling waves and minimalist jewellery.
Amanda Seyfried in Armani Privé
Amanda Seyfried came over all goth glam in Armani Privé at the Golden Globes. The American actress paired a sleek black column dress finished with a voluminous crystal-embellished purple bow with vampy dark purple eye makeup and Pomellato jewellery.
Bradley Cooper in Louis Vuitton
In perhaps the most aww-inducing moment of the Golden Globes, Bradley Cooper walked the red carpet with his mum, Gloria Campano. Cooper, who was nominated in both the Best Actor and Best Director categories for Maestro, wore a custom double-breasted Louis Vuitton tuxedo to match his mother’s elegant black lace gown.
Daniel Kaluuya in Dior
Offering up a timelessly chic look, British actor and director Daniel Kaluuya donned a black Dior suit with coordinating shirt and tie for the Golden Globes 2024. The look was finished with an elegant brooch also from the Dior men’s collection.
Florence Pugh in Valentino
Known for her daring style choices, British actress Florence Pugh added edge to her custom Valentino gown by pairing it with a rock’n’roll mohawk-inspired hairstyle and a septum ring for the Golden Globes.
Sarah Rafferty in Lanvin
American actress Sarah Rafferty reunited with her former Suits co-stars at the Golden Globes 2024, donning an elegant cape-effect Lanvin dress for the occasion. Finished with movie-star waves and embellished pumps, it was a quintessential red carpet look.
Andrew Scott in Valentino
Nominated for Best Actor for his role in All of Us Strangers, Andrew Scott eschewed traditional black in favour of a custom ivory shawl lapel tux by Valentino. Paired with a white vest and understated gold chain, this was a thoroughly modern red carpet menswear look.
Elizabeth Debicki in Dior Haute Couture
Elizabeth Debicki, who took home the gong for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her turn as Princess Diana in The Crown, looked ethereal in a Dior AW23 Haute Couture gown embroidered with antique silver discs. The look was finished with sleek ice blonde hair and a stack of necklaces from the Dior Joaillerie collection.
Greta Gerwig in Fendi Couture and Noah Baumbach in Dior
Barbie director Greta Gerwig went full Old Hollywood in a draped silk Fendi Couture floor-length gown with matching elbow-length gloves and Pomellato jewellery. The look was the perfect complement to the utterly classic Dior tux donned by husband (and Barbie co-writer) Noah Baumbach.
Jeremy Allen White in Calvin Klein
Calvin Klein isn’t a name you see too often on the major Hollywood red carpets but, unless you’ve been under a rock for the past week, you’ll know that The Bear star Jeremy Allen White has just been unveiled as the new, ahem, face of the brand. It follows, then, that he would choose the American designer to accept his Best Actor gong at the Golden Globes. The sheer shirt and oversized double-breasted cut aren’t exactly traditional but by sticking to block black, this really works as a contemporary red carpet take.
Emma Stone in Louis Vuitton and Yorgos Lanthimos in Dior
Best Actress winner Emma Stone and Poor Things director Yorgos Lanthimos cut a dapper figure on the Golden Globes red carpet. Stone kept her jewellery and styling minimal to allow her fully embroidered Louis Vuitton gown to do the talking, while Lanthimos switched up the classic black tux for an equally chic navy Dior version.
Naomi Watts in Fendi Couture
Attending the Golden Globes to present the award for Best Female Actor, Naomi Watts shimmered in a liquid silver Fendi Couture gown with all-over embroidery, which she coordinated with gorgeous Harry Winston jewellery.
Selena Gomez in Armani Privé
Nominated for her starring turn in Only Murders in the Building, Selena Gomez’s Armani Privé look proved to be one of the most divisive of the night. The ruby red silk dress featured a slashed asymmetric hem and complicated floral appliqué neckline which Gomez paired with mounds of Bulgari diamonds – are you in or out?
Barry Keoghan in Louis Vuitton
The men of the Golden Globes erred, on the whole, on the traditional side this year – except, that is, for Saltburn star Barry Keoghan. Another Marmite scarlet look, whether you love or loathe Keoghan’s mismatched Louis Vuitton houndstooth suit, it’s hard to deny it demands attention.
