Like every Hollywood event, the 2020 Golden Globes offered for us peasants a plethora of fashion delights and disasters to witness and froth over. Outfits ranged from: Classic Elegance to Fancy Prostitute. Who won and lost the night is debatable but one thing is for sure: 97% of these clothes are being returned to whatever designer loaned it to the celebrity for a night. You think rich folk keep or pay for award gowns and jewels? LOL! No.
People reports that rich people who are in a higher class than you and are friends with each other, also knew each other when they were younger! Cool, huh? Gwyneth Paltrow and Kerry Washington went to high school together. Gwyneth was a senior and Kerry was an eight-grader. And guess what? Gwyneth was just like she is now. Gwyneth Paltrow as a moody, snobby teenager? YIKES times infinity.
That headline was a little redundant. Because this picture of Gwendoline Christie arriving at the Emmys last night looking like Jesus Christ’s older, cooler sister Julie is telling you everything my title did and more. Of course the fashion from last night’s ceremony was extra as hell. Even before all the celebrities arrived, things were over-the-top. Nothing says, “Brace yourselves for fashion!” like making everyone stand and pose in front of a gold, glitter-covered anti-slip bath mat.
Before Harvey Weinstein was officially outed as the closest DNA relative to a bridge troll, it seemed as though every red carpet had at least one star in a Marchesa dress. Marchesa is co-owned by Harvey’s now-estranged wife Georgina Chapman. Then the stories about Harvey went public, and A-list actresses were running away from Marchesa as if it was a deep-fried gluten sandwich. Nobody wanted to wear Marchesa anymore. Well, nobody until Scarlett Johansson, who did just that at the Met Gala.
He looks like if Damien from The Omen got a job at Jiffy Lube. That’s current Hollywood slobber object Timothee Chalamat holding his statue for Best Male Lead for his part as a teenage twink in love with a much older dude in Call Me By Your Name. The Independent Spirit Awards were held yesterday. Variety reports that Jordan Peele’s “white people really ARE evil!” horror/comedy/satire Get Out won for Best Feature and Best Director, and honestly, why is Timothee dressed like a gas station attendant? Surely choosing an outfit for these things isn’t that much of a stressor that you say “eff it” and go with coveralls?
I think Auntie Maxine likes it! This was one red carpet that wasn’t a hot mess. Tracee Ellis Ross usually has “Best Dressed” on lock at just about any awards show she attends. However, come time for the NAACP Image Awards, she’s got some stiff competition. The attendees of this year’s awards did not come to play and Tracee’s outfit faded into the background. That’s because the red carpet was on fire!
