The 2023 Golden Globe Awards and fashion
Author: Vladislav Railes
The 80th Golden Globe Awards, which recognize the outstanding achievements in film and American television, were held on January 10, 2023 at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California. The event, hosted by Jerrod Carmichael, was broadcast live on NBC and streamed on Peacock. The nominees for the awards were revealed on December 12, 2022. Unfortunately, due to a positive COVID-19 test, George Lopez was unable to participate in the nominations announcement alongside his daughter Mayan, and was replaced by Selenis Leyva. Today we will cover the most expressive outfits that impressed the audience. Sometimes in a bad way.
Risky, not elegant
Estefanía "Tefi" Pessoa, known for her friendly and engaging personality on her popular TikTok account, made an unordinary fashion statement at the Golden Globes. She wore a gown with a sheer top and black straps that could be seen as more risqué than elegant. Her wet-look hairstyle was styled in a way to avoid any censorship issues, but it's likely that the show's producers were still cautious whenever Pessoa turned her head.
Chloe Flower, a gifted pianist and composer, graced the stage at the Golden Globes with her musical talents. As reported by Decider, Flower is also a dedicated activist who supports various organizations working towards ending sex trafficking. She donned several gowns throughout the night, including a pink ensemble that was considered among the best fashion choices at the Golden Globes, However, her red carpet look was not as successful. The white dress she wore seemed to swallow her up, obscuring one of her best features: her hands.
Heidi Klum, known for her bold and fashionable choices, took a risk at the Golden Globes this year. While many celebrities opted for metallic and sparkling garments, Klum's daring cut-out minidress stood out. However, the marabou shoulder sash added to her dress gave it a Las Vegas-like vibe that didn't quite fit in with the rest of the red carpet looks. Perhaps she should have sought advice from one of the designers from her show "Project Runway" before finalizing her outfit.
The 2023 Golden Globe Awards saw the emergence of the trend known as "Barbiecore," with mixed results among the celebrities. While some stars embraced the pink trend and shined, such as Billy Porter in his fuchsia tuxedo dress, others were less successful. Julia Garner took home a Globe award for her role in "Ozark" but her outfit, a crystal-embossed bustier gown with a overly cutesy tiered ruffled skirt, did not receive the same recognition. Despite this, her win for Best Supporting Actress in a Musical, Comedy or Drama made up for any fashion missteps.
Claire Danes attended the 2023 Golden Globe Awards as a nominee for Best Supporting Actress for her role in "Fleishman Is in Trouble." While she looked radiant as she showcased her baby bump on the red carpet with her husband, Hugh Dancy, her gown was not as well received. According to People, the dress featured an overabundance of flowers and feathers that detracted from Danes' appearance. The bow in the front further added to the overwhelming design, making it one of the worst of the night.
Photoshop and green screen
Slate's decision to wear this particular shade of green was unfortunate, as it has been known to be an easy target for photoshopping, as seen with Kate Middleton's dress. Twitter users had a field day editing and making fun of her dress. It would have been better for Slate to avoid this shade or design to avoid similar treatment, and perhaps to photoshop the flower on her dress.
