Gemma Chan

Best and Worst Dressed at the 2019 Golden Globes

 

The stars came out to honour the best in TV and film at the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday. Unlike last year, when most celebs wore black in support of Time’s Up, this year’s red carpet was a sea of colour. White and tulle were the biggest themes, but the dresses we loved most had a bit more edge. Check out our picks for the best and worst looks of the night:

BEST DRESSED AT THE 2019 GOLDEN GLOBES:

Jen: Nicole Kidman looks like liquid sex in this slinky blood red merlot dress by Michael Kors. Nicole and I are fighting over the black hair bow (I hate it, she loves it) but this dress is an undeniable winner.

 

Nicole: Holy merde, Regina King came to win tonight! She is by far my best dressed in a glowing blush gown by Alberta Ferretti that shines on the carpet. So very beautiful with simple accessories and unfussy hair. The whole look is stunning.

 

Jen: Crazy Rich Asians star Gemma Chan brings high fashion to the red carpet in this gorg Maison Valentino Couture creation. And are those shorts underneath there?? Marry me.

 

Nicole: Taraji P Henson in a plunging velvet custom Vera Wang completely makes up for the Giambattista Valli disaster from last year’s Emmys. She looked absolutely amazing in this head to toe sleek look.

 

Jen: Lupita Nyong’o is radiant in blue sequined Calvin Klein. I love the unique neckline and the way it moves on camera.

 

Nicole: Fleabag and Killing Eve creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge is gorgeous in a red sequinned custom gown by Galvan London that fits perfectly. She lets the dress do all the work, keeping the rest of her look very simple. This is movie star style and I’m just tickled that she’s there for writing.

 

Jen: Keri Russell deserves to take home the hardware for her stellar performance on the final season of The Americans, but she already looks like a winner in this Grecian-inspired metallic Monique Lhuillier.

 

Nicole: I love Octavia Spencer‘s tea-length gown from Cristian Siriano. It’s supremely flattering and a different silhouette than we see elsewhere on the carpet.

 

Jen: I’m sure it’s going to end up on a bunch of worst lists, but I actually really dig this look on Julia Roberts. Her ethereal Stella McCartney top and crisp black pants make her look cool and relaxed AF.

 

Nicole: Thandie Newton is pure sexiness in this mirrored Michael Kors gown that shows glimpses of skin and clings to every curve. Like a lot of looks I love tonight, the dress does all the work and the really simple gorgeous hair pulls it all together.

 

WORST DRESSED AT THE 2019 GOLDEN GLOBES:

Nicole: Oh boy, I wish that Julianne Moore would go back to letting her pal Tom Ford dress her because Givenchy is not working for her. This is an absurd dress that tries to be too many things and ends up looking boxy and dowdy. Boo.

 

Jen: As soon as we saw Claire Foy’s Miu Miu gown, Nicole said that it reminded her of that scene in The Proposal when Sandra Bullock tries on the wedding dress and her boobs disappear. That about sums this up.

 

Nicole: What the actual hell, Alison Brie? How on earth did Taraji and Allison’s dresses come out of the same brain? Can I even call Allison’s outfit a gown? It looks like a bikini top under a sheer cover. Hard nope.

 

Jen: Lady Gaga is out of the shallows and off the deep end in blue Valentino. I get that it’s an homage to Judy Garland but the arms are ridiculous and there’s so much fabric on the train that it looks like she’s dragging curtains behind her.

 

Nicole: Jen and I actually fought over who got to pick Emily Blunt in Alexander McQueen as our best dressed until we saw the mess at the bottom of the gown. Why oh why couldn’t it be a simple column!? So close.

 

Jen: I adore Constance Wu and I want so much more for her than this underwhelming Vera Wang. The colour makes it look like support wear, and tulle is nobody’s friend.

 

Nicole: I’m all for simple tonight but man, Amy Adams is too austere in her teal Calvin Klein. She needs lipstick and a necklace, maybe a bow? Let’s get Tom Ford to dress her from now on, too!

 

Jen: The Good Place’s D’Arcy Carden is trapped in the bad place with this terrible gown. Puckered seams, unflattering colour, clashing straps. What is this??

-After a summer of rampant speculation about affairs and separations, Victoria and David Beckham are presenting a united front in the new issue of British Vogue. They dismiss the rumours (“People have been making things up about our relationship for 20 years, so David and I are pretty used to ignoring the nonsense and just carrying on as normal”) and discuss their family bond (“We both realise that we are stronger together than we are as individuals. Would either of us be in the position that we are in now had we not met and been together all those years ago? It’s all about the family unit. We are much stronger – the six of us – than we would be if we were individuals. We respect that family bond and that is key”).

Victoria and David were also photographed looking cozy this weekend on a yacht in the south of France.

Cate Blanchett talks #MeToo, Brexit and her hopes for her children’s future in her new Harper’s Bazaar UK cover story.

Mindy Kaling‘s tweets on Crazy Rich Asians this weekend were wonderful — though I really wish she’d learn how to thread them.

-Meanwhile, Crazy Rich Asians’ $28.3 million holiday weekend ranks as the best Labor Day showing in over a decade.

-I missed this bit about CRA’s final proposal scene and how it was re-written on the fly. “We had a ring designed already, and our mock-up looked so shitty that Michelle [Yeoh] was like, That cannot be the ring I wear. I’m like, I know, I know. I’m so embarrassed by it, but we don’t have the money. She’s like, I have a better ring than that. So Yeoh asked her assistant to get her box of jewelry and pulled out the ring that Nick eventually proposes with: an emerald and diamond one she bought as a gift to herself.”

-Wait, is Dave Bautista really out here spilling Avengers 4 spoilers because he’s angry about the James Gunn situation? Really tho?

-I think we all deserve to have one moment where Jeff Goldblum describes our personality. Listen to the way he describes Tessa Thompson.

-Whoa! David Cronenberg is in the early stages of developing a TV series.

Nicki Minaj‘s handling of her nip slip during a performance this weekend might be the smoothest recovery I’ve ever seen.

-Actors jumped to the defense of former Cosby star Geoffrey Owens, who was mocked for bagging groceries at Trader Joe’s. Owens then appeared on GMA to say “I’ve had a great life. I’ve had a great career. I’ve had a career that most actors would die for. So no one has to feel sorry for me. I’m doing fine!”

-I don’t know why I find this clip of Janet Jackson admitting she doesn’t know what Hot Cheetos are so endearing, but I do.

-Here are 20 Padma Lakshmi-approved comedians “who are actually funny” and “haven’t harassed women.”

-A bartender named Jade alleges that Cardi B twice set a group of people to attack her for supposedly sleeping with Offset, which Jade denies.

Viola Davis looks amazing on the cover of Variety’s TIFF issue.

Melissa McCarthy‘s new movie Can You Ever Forgive Me is a surprise film fest fave. Word of mouth is so good, I might pick up a screening at TIFF next week.

-TIFF pulled Elle Fanning‘s Galveston from its gala lineup when they realized the cast and director wasn’t planning on attending. Too bad. After what she wore to the film’s premiere I was curious about what she’d show up in.

-I’m way late to this, but I finally caught up on Succession and wow, that was a satisfying finale. Maybe my fave hour of television so far this year.

Dominic Cooper and Crazy Rich Asian’s Gemma Chan definitely seem to be a thing. They were photographed together last week, and then again this week in Spain.

-Here’s The Favourite trailer with Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz and the AMAZING Olivia Colman.
