2024 Golden Globes Outfit Yearbook

A review of some of the looks at this years Golden Globes.

The Golden Globes kicked off the 2024 award season by honoring the iconic movies and tv shows of 2023. It wouldn’t be the award season without the dull jokes that fall flat, and, of course, interesting fashion choices on the red carpet. Let’s recap!


Golden Globes: Most Barbie!


Of course Barbie herself, Miss Margot Robbie, steals the crown for “Most Barbie” with her outfit inspired by Superstar Barbie from 1977. She was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture for her performance in the “Barbie” movie. I am completely and utterly obsessed with Robbie’s dedication to honoring her movie. In case any of the readers were unaware, Robbie has been dressing as various Barbies for all of her premieres and carpet appearances since last summer.


I must hand it to actress Hailee Steinfeld for her Audrey Hepburn mixed with Barbie outfit. Definitely a runner up in this category! 





Golden Globes: Most Funeral-Ready!

Following the release of her most recent movie, “Saltburn,” Rosamund Pike was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture. In regards to her outfit, I like the originality for a carpet event with the fishnet style top underneath the dress and the incorporation of the headpiece, however, she looks ready to dash off and attend anyones funeral. I must say, this outfit was very on brand for her most recent movie.


Golden Globes: Most Red, Red Carpet!


Heidi Klum never fails to dazzle! Her elegant dress is eye-catching and big, yet it maintains a simplistic appearance with a few sparkles on the corset styled top and a consistent red coloring throughout. It really reminds me of the Christmas Barbie.


I do have to hand a runner-up award to actor Barry Keoghan, who was nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama. He wore an interesting ensemble consisting of two different colored reds, multiple patterns, and gold and white accents.




Golden Globes: Most Mirrorball!


Sequins is a fan favorite for the carpet events. There is always at least one person who shows up decked out in a “mirrorball” inspired outfit. This year, I was torn between granting this category to actress Julia Garner for her silvery attire depicted above orbestowing Natalie Portman with this honor. However, seeing as Portman’s dress was not fully silver, instead faded into multicolored sparkles that resembled a field of flowers during the spring, I felt obligated to hand the “Most Mirrorball” to Garner.


Golden Globes: Most Classy (Male edition)!


This category actually has to go to multiple actors due to the uncanny resemblances between their outfits. I really am unable to spot any differences between the suits worn by Jeffery Wright (nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy), Paul Giamatti (winner of the Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy category), and Steven Yeun (winner of the Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series, Anthology Series or Motion Picture Made for Television category). There’s nothing wrong with a simple black tux, white button down, and black bow tie, but this is not a wedding or prom. Spice it up a little gentlemen!


Golden Globes: Most Classy (Female edition)!

Playing into the classic black pants and white button down, “Barbie” actress Ariana Greenblatt showed up in an outfit inspired by this classic James Bond look, but added her own twist to it. I really love this look and think that it maintains a level of simplicity while also taking a unique twist. It’s very much a modern day pirate!


Golden Globes: Most Ready to Walk the Aisle!

Actress Julia Schlaepfer showed up in this beautiful silk, white dress. She was not the only person to make an appearance in a white gown, however hers was one of my favorites and it was most similar to a wedding dress. 


Golden Globes: Most Ready for a Skittles Commercial!

Ms. Swift walked the carpet in this lime green, sparkly number. This piece is much brighter than what we normally see her in, but it was a fun, sequin-y, surprise. Green colored dresses seem to be on the rise for the red carpet season, but when mixed with the “red” on the carpet, there is a serious clash of colors. Were we thrown back into the Christmas season or have some Skittles escaped their bag? This is definitely a new look for this popstar, but she rocks it!


Golden Globes: Most Innovative!



Shockingly, I find this to be the only really perplexing and odd outfit of the night. Actress Natasha Lyonne, nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy, showed up in this one-of-a-kind dress. I think that the bottom portion of this dress is cute and simple with some interesting tassels. In contrast, the top portion of the dress seems stiff, restricting, and unflattering, not to mention extremely confusing. My favorite part about Ms. Lyonne’s outfit would have to be her red hair, I absolutely love it!

Runner up to this category has to go to Karen Gillan! In the wise words of senior Wilson Swenson, “It was like she was holding a container of tin foil and walked through a car wash”.


Golden Globes: Most Likely to be Prom King and Queen!

My all time favorite Hollywood couple, Emily Blunt and her husband, John Krasinski! Emily Blunt was nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for her film “Oppenheimer”. For some reason, when side by side, the outfits worn by both actors really remind me of “The Hunger Games”. Can’t quite explain why, but just go with it. I love how angelic Blunt’s dress seems with the gold detailing, sheer fabric, and wispy skirt. Krasinski’s outfit was simple, yet maintained a level of creativity that complimented Blunt’s outfit perfectly. Using 2 different tones of red can be risky, but he pulled it off well. Props!


Golden Globes: Most On-Brand!

Margot Robbie would definitely be the strongest contender for this category, however, there were others who also dedicated themselves to honoring their films. Ms. Oprah Winfrey showed up in an all purple outfit in support of the movie “The Color Purple”, which she produced. I can’t tell if the dress is velour or has sequins that reflects the light, creating the appearance of a velvet/velour material. Nothing much to say about this simple, beautiful, and definitely on-brand appearance for Ms. Winfrey.


Golden Globes: Most Off-Brand!

For someone who attended the ceremony as a nominee for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, such movie being “Wonka”, which is filled with candy, colors, and loads of singing, this all black, slightly emo, ensemble is really not on-brand for Mr. Chalamet. Actor Timothée Chalamet had been sporting styles inspired by his new film on past carpets for the premiere of the movie, yet he ditched it for these awards. I wonder why? The outfit itself draws no complaints from me other than the fact that I wish there was a little pop of purple. Maybe he could take notes from Ms. Winfrey on this matter.



There were many outfits that made an appearance and impression on the Golden Globes carpet this year, however, these were some of the few that stuck out predominantly to me. I can’t wait to see what the other award shows have to offer!
