Golden Globes 2021 fashion: 'Hybrid' ceremony combines red carpet with bold at-home looks
Written by Oscar Holland, CNN
The Golden Globes offered a taste of what awards style may look like in 2021, with this year's "hybrid" ceremony combining traditional red carpet moments with colorful at-home fashion.
While a handful of presenters were pictured arriving in person, at either New York's Rainbow Room or the Beverly Hilton in LA, many of the night's most talked-about looks were beamed in virtually or posted to social media prior to the show.
Among them was Rosamund Pike's red Molly Goddard gown and black boots, which the British actress used to create her own red carpet moment on Instagram. Emerging from a hotel elevator, she performed a dramatic high kick before gliding down the lobby on her way to winning Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, for her performance in "I Care a Lot."
Elsewhere, there were plenty of bright colors and lots of escapist fun on display -- from feathers to elaborate embroidery -- as stars posted their glamorous snaps to Instagram and Twitter.
Kaley Cuoco, nominated for her role in "The Flight Attendant," opted for a sparkling silver princess dress by Oscar de la Renta. Amanda Seyfried also chose Oscar de la Renta, channeling old Hollywood glamour in a stunning a coral gown with floral embellishments.
Some of the evening's big winners also wowed with their stay-at-home fashion -- not least of all Andra Day, who posted images of her herself in a silk dress from Chanel's Spring/Summer Haute Couture 2021. She later won Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama, for her performance in "The United States vs Billie Holiday." Emma Corin, who took home a Golden Globe for her role as Princess Diana in "The Crown," meanwhile looked fittingly regal in a custom Miu Miu gown with an Elizabethan-inspired ruff collar.
Those fortunate enough to walk the red carpet in person also brought pops of color and playful detailing. Angela Bassett wore a one-shouldered Dolce and Gabbana gown with feather trims, and Awkwafina went for retro wavy stripes.
But none could match Cynthia Erivo for boldness. One of the best-dressed stars of last year's awards season, she stunned in a futuristic neon green Valentino number with daring silver platforms.
There was plenty of eye-catching menswear on display, too. "Schitt's Creek" co-creator and co-star Dan Levy took a literal approach to Golden Globes fashion by pairing his chartreuse Valentino suit with metallic shoes and a gold sequined top. Leslie Odom Jr. also looked dapper in a dark pinkish-brown suit with mint green turtleneck, while Bill Murray shunned protocol altogether by wearing a fluorescent Hawaiian shirt.

Several stars impressed in elegant black evening wear amid all the color -- including hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who live-streamed their humor from New York and LA, respectively.
Laura Dern looked elegant in a Givenchy black pantsuit over a bra top, while Shira Haas, who was nominated for her role in "Unorthodox," gained plaudits for a floor-length black Chanel gown, which she wore in pictures posted online prior to the ceremony.
While the Golden Globes red carpet often hints at what to expect at the Oscars -- which have been pushed back to April -- it's unclear whether that will remain true in this most unusual of awards seasons. But Sunday's ceremony nonetheless showed that, red carpet or not, stars are ready to turn up.
