The Best 2021 Golden Globes Fashion Looks Prove Virtual Dressing Has Hit Its Peak

In-person red carpet events are still on pause for this year, which means most people will partake in the award season circuit from home. What follows is a more tame and relaxed version of the usual hustle and bustle of a Sunday night for celebrities — there’s no accidentally stepping on anyone’s gown or mingling with costars while teetering on six-inch heels. When it comes to the fashion, however, Hollywood’s actors still brought the drama, especially to the 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards where their best looks deserved all the heart eyes emojis.

One of the celebrities to kick off the festivities was Bridgerton‘s Nicola Coughlan who wore a gorgeous yellow gown from Molly Goddard for InStyle‘s virtual elevator series. Meanwhile, actor Olivia Munn went the opposite route and dressed in a slightly more casual matching crepe shirt and pants set from Nanushka. The most dramatic and standout look from the night, however, came from Cynthia Erivo, who wore a futuristic Valentino couture gown.

While nominees like Viola Davis and Elle Fanning remained home, presenters like Margot Robbie, Tiffany Haddish, Gal Gadot, and Awkwafina had the chance to get all dressed up and leave their houses. (Presenters, from both the East and West coasts, stepped on stage to announce the category winners.) There was no shortage of glamorous outfits from both sides and for the nominees, they seemed to have perfected the art of styling hair, makeup, and outfits for virtual conferences. The only nerves left to be experienced by the actors then was wondering if the internet connection was stable enough during acceptance speeches. See TZR’s favorite celebrity outfits from the night, below.
