After a hiatus last year, the Golden Globes 2023 marks an exciting return to celebrate the best of American cinema and TV with full pomp. The first award ceremony of the year kicked off on a fashionable note, and it will certainly set the stage for the upcoming ones. For the 80th Golden Globes red carpet, silhouettes turned more avant-garde, colors more unique, and jewels a little less shiny.
Classic glamour was sure on the menu, and the attendees served well! From Angela Bassett’s chic sequin dress to flouncy Gucci gowns on Julia Garner and Michelle Williams, we gathered the best red carpet looks from Golden Globes 2023 and conferred an accolade every fashion maven waits for — BEST DRESSED.
Best Red Carpet Looks From Golden Globes 2023
Michelle Yeoh in Armani
Winner of the Best Performance by an Actress in a Musical or Comedy Motion Picture, Everything, Everywhere, All at Once star Michelle Yeoh stunned in a strapless Armani dress with a peplum design. She delivered restrained refinement in the best form with a classic hairdo, high-octane jewels, and subtle sparkles.
Michelle Williams in Gucci
The Fabelmans’ actress Michelle Williams was seen in a white Gucci dress with mounds and heaps of ruffles layered one after another. We love that it strikes the right balance between drama and elegance.
Margot Robbie In Chanel
The Babylon star Margot Robbie arrived in a dress custom-made by Chanel that featured sheer stripes, a halter-neck design, and a tulle skirt that took 750 hours to create. We will see more of Margot Robbie in pink as her anticipated film Barbie comes out this July!
Angela Bassett in Pamela Rolland
Kudos to Angela Bassett, who won the best supporting actress award in a motion picture at the Golden Globes 2023 for her role of Queen Ramonda in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. She wore a sequined Pamella Rolland dress and portrayed the best kind of glam — confident, effortless, simple, and classic.
Lily James in Versace
The Pam & Tommy star, nominated for best actress in a limited television series, donned a popping red Versace gown detailed with crisscrossing midriff straps and an over-the-top skirt that harks back at the Old Hollywood style.
Julia Garner in Gucci
Winner of the best supporting actress in a television series for her role in Netflix’s Ozark, Julia Garner showed up wearing a Gucci confect at the 2023 Golden Globe Awards. The delicious pink hue, tiered ruffles, a corset top with dazzling crystals, and de Beers jewels made her look dreamy and chic.
Li Jun Li in Dolce & Gabbana
Chinese-American actress Li Jun Li starred in Babylon and looked impeccable in a Dolce & Gabbana dress. She stood out from the pack in her shimmering ensemble with no attempt to innovate or follow trends — a quiet, flawless, and classy look. Li Jun Li accessorized with a Jimmy Choo clutch, a subtle-yet-there Marli choker, and Le Vian jewelry.
Tyler James Williams in Amiri
Tyler James Williams took home the award for best-supporting actor in the TV series for Abbott Elementary. He walked the Golden Globes 2023 red carpet in a blue Amiri suit moving away from the usual black-and-white tux look.
Emma D’Arcy in Acne Studios
Nominated for best TV drama actress, the House of the Dragon star looked unforgettable in an androgynous ensemble. The half skirt, a pair of pants, and an oversized blazer set a perfect example of the non-binary style. Emma D’Arcy coordinated the blue hair and eye makeup with gloves, and the embellished boots are a splendid finishing touch.
Jenna Ortega in Gucci
Jenna Ortega was nominated for best television actress in musical/comedy series for playing the role of Wednesday Addams in the Netflix series Wednesday. She took a break from the goth looks and slipped into this Gucci gown with exaggerated sleeves and an asymmetrical train.
Quinta Brunson in Christian Siriano
Actor and creator of the TV series Abbott Elementary won the best actress award, and for us, she certainly hit the style sweet spot with her dramatic Christian Siriano gown. We love how the sweetheart neckline, along with the fit and flare silhouette of the Siriano confection, frames her gracefully.
Rihanna in Schiaparelli Couture
Rihanna made a late appearance at the Golden Globes 2023, but we can safely say that she was fashionably late. Even though her voluminous Schiaparelli gown had no train, the dramatic cape sure did. Her sleek hairstyle with diamond jewels made us think of old Hollywood glamour.
Jennifer Coolidge in Dolce & Gabbana
Jennifer Coolidge won her first-ever Golden Globe for best supporting actress in limited series for the most-buzzed show, The White Lotus. She looked alluring in a Dolce & Gabbana sequin dress that matched her clutch.
Colman Domingo in Dolce & Gabbana
The star of Euphoria looked sophisticated, dripping in black embellishments in a studded Dolce & Gabbana suit and bowtie with David Yurman jewels.
Donald Glover in Saint Laurent
Atlanta star Donald Glover was nominated for best actor in television series musical/comedy and arrived in a Saint Laurent suit. We loved the creative spin on the classic black-and-white outfit! With a relaxed fit and smug look, Glover surely aces and elevates evening wear for men once and for all.
