The 78th Golden Globe Awards – Best Dressed

Another day, another pandemic red-carpet! After everything we have been through during this past year, I am just grateful that we even got to watch The Golden Globes. Hey, at least I don’t have to feel guilty this year watching from home in sweatpants. This time, it wasn’t my fault! There were not as many celebrity appearances as we are normally used to, but there were still quite a few fashionable moments to rave about! As always, I have put together a collection of my favorite looks. I hope you will enjoy it, then let me know your favorites in the comments below! Cheers to the beginning of awards season!

I think this is my favorite Andra Day look, and that is saying a lot because continuously sets the bar very, very high! Andra Day won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama for her role in The United States vs. Billie Holiday, all while wearing this beautiful Chanel dress.

Angela Bassett is just the greatest and I honestly don’t think I have ever left her off my list of favorite looks. She may have only been a presenter, but was the real winner tonight, wearing a purple Dolce & Gabbana gown.

Amanda Seyfried – Oscar De La Renta

Woah! I was speechless when I first saw Amanda Seyfried wearing this coral-colored Oscar De La Renta gown. I am obsessed with this gown on her, by far my favorite Amanda Seyfriend red-carpet moment, ever!

Catherine O’Hara – Vera Wang

This was likely Catherine O’Hara’s final award show appearance for Schitt’s Creek so of course, it makes the perfect amount of sense for her to pay the ultimate tribute to our hero, Moira Rose! Catherine wore a black and white Vera Wang suit, as she won the Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy TV Series award, her first Golden Globe award!

Gillian Anderson – Christian Dior

The incredible Gillian Anderson might have been watching from home, but that did not stop her from giving one of the stronger couture moments of the evening. Before winning the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Miniseries or Television Film for her role as Margaret Thatcher in The Crown, we got to bask in the glory that is this Christian Dior gown with a fierce, skull emblem bodice.

Laura Dern – Givenchy

I loved this Givenchy suit Laura Dern wore to The Golden Globes. It was a simple, classic suit that was really just quite stunning. Also, I was just really excited to see Laura Dern because she is perfect.

Laverne Cox – Thai Nguyen

I am a big Laverne Cox fan. She really said, “what pandemic?” and gave us one of her top red-carpet looks to date. This Thai Nguyen gown is stunning. Like the rest of the world, Laverne has been open about her love for the new Netflix show, Bridgerton. Well Laverne, tonight you are the diamond of the season! (Wow, that was pretty nerdy.)

Regina King – Louis Vuitton

Oh wow, Regina King looked amazing. I mean this is really not a surprise, she always looks amazing. I feel robbed knowing that I didn’t get to see Regina rock this Louis Vuitton gown down the red carpet. This is best-dressed material! I am obsessed.

Sarah Paulson – Prada

I’m sorry, if you thought an injury would keep Sarah Paulson from dominating the red-carpet, you are so mistaken. Not only did we get to see Sarah in one of the most beautiful Prada gowns ever, but she had her arm in a custom Prada cast as well. Now that is iconic.

Shira Haas – Chanel

I thought Shira Haas looked so good in this black Chanel dress! I loved the simple square-neck silhouette. It was simple, yet modern and edgy. Sometimes less is more and Shira wore this dress perfectly.

Viola Davis – Lavie by CK

Easily one of my favorite looks of the night. Viola Davis wore a color, exquisite gown constructed prints inspired by Cameroon. The designer of this gown is Claude Kameni, an emerging Cameroon-born, LA-based designer who has been on a quest to bring African prints to the forefront of fashion. All hail the queen!


See, that was pretty fun, wasn’t it! It’s time for me to pick my top three looks of the night. Ugh, this is pretty hard actually. I can’t settle on just three. Well, it’s my column so I make the rules, I am picking my top four and you will deal with it!

These four were just so good! If I had to pick a favorite though, I think it would be Viola Davis in Lavie by CK. I am just obsessed with the prints! So good!

Whether you think I got everything right, or maybe you think I need to lay-off the Trader Joe’s wine, please leave your thoughts in the comments! I would love to hear who wore your favorite look! Have a great week everyone, and please stay safe and healthy! Thank you all for reading.

After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising with a degree in Fashion Design, Spencer realized that his love for fashion was not entirely found on a runway, but seen on screen through film and television. As a Los Angeles event planner, Spencer began to organize panels of costume designers benefiting students who were fascinated by costume design. As Spencer’s connections within the costume design field began to grow, so did his love for the craft. Then in 2019, Spencer decided it was time to share his love for costume design on an international level and launched The Art of Costume.
