Best red carpet fashion at the 2023 Golden Globe Awards
See some of the most eye-catching looks from LA's Beverly Hilton, where the stars gathered to mark the awards' landmark 80th edition.
After a year off air amid a boycott by studios and celebrities, the Golden Globe Awards
returned to TV screens Tuesday — and the stars also flocked back to LA's Beverly Hilton in style.
The ceremony serves as a bellwether not only for who will win Oscars in March, but for the fashion trends we can expect to see throughout awards season.
Plenty of attendees arrived in black and gothic-inspired outfits, from Selena Gomez's dramatic Valentino gown to the lace cape that Jamie Lee Curtis wore over her strapless jumpsuit (also by the Italian label). Although she skipped the official red carpet, Rihanna was in attendance wearing a custom black velvet Schiaparelli couture gown. Liza Koshy and actor Paige Butcher were among the other stars opting for dark lace ensembles.

But there were pops of color — and an abundance of ruffles and sparkling sequins, too. Laverne Cox wowed in a vintage John Galliano gown and Julia Garner was one of several stars to wear powdery pink, as she arrived in a three-tiered Gucci design. With organizers this year rolling out a gray carpet, Lily James and "Top Gun: Maverick" actor Monica Barbaro both took the opportunity to wear eye-catching red gowns.
Many of evening's men broke with black-tie tradition in bright and embellished outfits, from the huge silk flower affixed to Eddie Redmaye's tuxedo to the powder blue Louis Vuitton suit worn by "The Banshees of Inisherin" star Barry Keoghan. Elsewhere, Reece Feldman went for a pleated skirt while TikTok star Josh Richards sported a cropped T-shirt underneath his pinstripe suit.
But it was Billy Porter who stole the show in a Christian Siriano tuxedo gown that put a magenta spin on his game-changing 2019 Oscars outfit
