LOS ANGELES — Hollywood's brightest stars sparkled on Sunday on the red carpet at the Golden Globes, the first showbiz awards gala of 2020.
Under sunny skies, the best and brightest of film and television arrived at the Beverly Hilton in their finest for the ceremony, hosted by British comedian Ricky Gervais.
Tinseltown's A-list wants to make a good impression on the first major red carpet of the year, and how better to do that than in classic black and white, a fashion staple.
Style icon Billy Porter, a nominee for best actor in a TV drama for his work on Pose, wowed fans in an all-white Alex Vinash tuxedo with a coat featuring a giant feather train - that zips off, he explained to E! television.
Nominated actress Joey King (The Act) created a daring carpet moment in a sculptural black and white Iris van Herpen dress with a mind-boggling wavy detail and bare shoulders.
Actress-filmmaker Greta Gerwig - whose Little Women is in contention but who was notably snubbed in the best director category - turned heads in a black Proenza Schouler dress with a notable side slit and a white off the shoulder neckline.
Nominee Cynthia Erivo ("Harriet") rocked a similar look - a custom Thom Browne number with flowers embroidered in the inner lining of her dress.
And Awkwafina, a favorite to take home an award for her starring role in The Farewell, sported a sleek Dior tuxedo with a ruffled collar blouse. — AFP
