This year’s Golden Globes looked very different in light of the ongoing pandemic – but one thing remained constant at the awards ceremony: the plethora of fashion fails being flaunted by celebrities, both on the red carpet and at home throughout the semi-virtual event.
Returning hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey led the sub-par style at this year’s ceremony, with both women putting on a very dreary show in lackluster black ensembles that did little to flatter their figures, and appeared entirely effortless for all the wrong reasons.
Amy, 49, wore a glittering black turtleneck dress with thick opaque tights that made it look more like she was getting ready for a night out at a trashy club rather than an evening at one of Hollywood’s most prestigious events. Meanwhile her co-host and best friend Tina, 50, seemed to have dressed to match her pal, wearing a tuxedo-style mini dress – which she chose to pair with some rather tacky fishnet-esque tights.
Fashion flop: Golden Globes presenters Amy Poehler and Tina Fey led the worst-dressed celebrities appearing at this year’s socially-distanced ceremony in unflattering and lackluster black ensembles
Round two: Tina’s looks did not improve as the night went on, with the comedian swapping her tuxedo look for this very dreary dress, which made her look a bit like a school teacher
Garish: Cynthia Erivo’s highlighter-green dress was incredibly bright, and the structured shape made it look more like a Halloween costume than a Hollywood gown
Easy to spot! The 34-year-old actress and singer’s Valentino dress certainly helped her to stand out – although not for the reasons she may have wanted – and her enormous silver platform heels only added to the cartoon quality of the look
Over-the-top: Maya Rudolph’s very vibrant floral dress was more eyesore than elegant, and the mid-calf hemline wasn’t particularly flattering
The dress itself was by no means unflattering, however when paired with the tights it took on a rather trashy feel, which was further emphasized by her chunky glittering statement necklace.
Tina and Amy were not the only comedy stars to miss the style mark on Sunday evening; Maya Rudolph also fell short with her fashion choice – a garish floral-print dress that looked a lot like a Hawaiian shirt, rather than a glamorous Hollywood gown.
To add insult to injury, the shape of the dress – which fell to her mid-calf – was incredibly unflattering, and left the stunning 48-year-old appear as though she had simply draped a piece of fabric over herself before heading out the door.
Stealing the sartorial spotlight in all the wrong ways was 34-year-old actress Cynthia Erivo, who was very difficult to miss thanks to her garish neon-green Valentino dress.
The structured gown featured a figure-hugging bodice and an enormous hoop-style skirt, and left the naturally-beautiful star looking as though she had donned a Halloween costume – an image that was further emphasized by the addition of sky-high silver platform shoes, which she showed off on stage while presenting an award.
Lady in red: Pre-show host Zuri Hall’s look worked wonders when it came to showcasing her enviable figure, but the tiny top teetered on the edge of trashy, and the textured skirt was incredibly distracting
Too bright? Spike Lee’s son Jackson decided to pose in orange-tinted sunglasses on the red carpet, which gave his kimono look something of a comical feel
Holy moly: Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist star Jany Levy’s Oscar De La Renta dress looked as though it had been attacked by moths thanks so the large holes, while the black ribbon-esque embellishments looked very out of place
Yo ho ho! Best actress nominee Andra Day’s Chanel dress had a very nautical theme – but rather than lending a chic edge, it simply made the design look as though it had been made from an old fishing net
On the upside… The actress’ makeup look was absolutely stunning, but the dress did little to complement her beauty
Also adding to the fashion flops at the in-person event were pre-show host Zuri Hall and Spike Lee’s son Jackson, both of whom turned heads for their rather over-the-top red carpet looks.
Zuri, 32, showed off her enviable figure in a tiny red boob tube, which was somewhat skimpy for such a prestigious event – and could have done with the addition of some extra fabric, which could easily have been found in her enormous matching skirt.
The flowing design swamped her bottom half and only served to further emphasize the tininess of her crop top.
Jackson meanwhile opted to wear a rather dapper suit – but he added a rather ridiculous edge to it by donning a silk kimono over the top, as well as a pair of orange-lensed shades.
And it wasn’t just the stars in attendance at the event who showed off some less-than-impressive ensembles for the evening – the at-home line-up featured just as many sartorial disasters.
Baring it all: Actress Kiersey Clemons posed in her Golden Globes look at home, rather than on the red carpet, but the professional shoot did little to conceal the very risque slit and cut-out detailing on her dress
What is that? Jared Leto joined the show from home, where he modeled a beige suit with a very strange looking flower in his lapel, which looked as though it was made from skin
Oh dear: Bridgerton star Nicola Coughlan tried to recreate her character’s style for an at-home video shoot – but the puffed-up yellow gown looked nothing short of comical, particularly when paired with the garish pink eyeshadow
Fluffed up: Rosamund Pike also opted for a poofy gown while celebrating the Globes at home – bizarrely choosing to pair the very feminine style with clunky combat boots, which made for an awkward overall look
Woah: Keke Palmer left absolutely nothing to the imagination in a crop top and tiny hotpants – which may have been fine for dancing around her living room, but were inappropriate for a glittering awards show
Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist star Jany Levy’s Oscar De La Renta dress looked as though it had been attacked by moths thanks to the large holes that covered the design, which also featured some rather bizarre black ribbon embellishments that could well have been tied on in a last minute effort to improve the look.
