Golden Globes Fashion: White and Sequined Looks Light up the 2016 Red Carpet

The rare lack of rain perhaps paved the way for the abundance of white on the 2016 Golden Globe awards red carpet.

Svelte lead and supporting actress nominee Alicia Vikander stunned in a fashion-forward white ruffled Louis Vuitton dress. Saoirse Ronan, also up for best actress, similarly picked white — a feminine Yves Saint Laurent Couture gown with draping cape — for her big night. “(My Globes look) will be elegant, but it will still be young,” Ronan told Variety at this week’s “Brooklyn” celebration. “I have a brilliant stylist who has really encouraged me to just have fun with what I wear. When you’re young, you don’t want to be taken too seriously.”

Other ladies making statements in white included “Transparent’s” Judith Light, who chose a sleek pantsuit; “Orange is the New Black’s” Laverne Cox, who wore a simple white Elizabeth Kennedy dress with dramatic train (and emerald green Caption Polish); “Telenovela’s” Eva Longoria, who picked a fitted white dress with floral embellishments and open back; and Taraji P. Henson, who opted for a strapless Stella McCartney dress.

Staying in the light color family, lead actress nominee Cate Blanchett picked an elegant silk Givenchy dress in a pale shade of pink, while “Hateful Eight’s” Jennifer Jason Leigh went for a Roland Mouret bespoke galaxy gown in powder blue.

Many other Globe attendees chose to stand out by way of sparkle. “Room’s” Brie Larson wore a gold hand-embroidered topaz crystal Calvin Klein gown with sexy cutouts. “American Crime’s” nominee Regina King caught eyes in a caped Krikor Jabotian gown — which screamed haute couture. Eva Green glittered in gold Elie Saab. And Kate Hudson shimmered and showed a surprising amount of skin in a Michael Kors crop top and mermaid-cut skirt, with Forevermark Diamonds.

Pops of color were also a staple on the carpet, by way of lead actress nominee Jennifer Lawrence, who dazzled in a bold Dior design with side cutouts in red — the color also chosen by “Shameless” star Emmy Rossum, who wore Armani Privee. Blue-Green jewel tones were seen on stars from Jaimie Alexander in Genny, to Rachel Bloom, to Gina Rodriguez (in a navy princess-y Zac Posen and “classic yet retro” hair styled by Joico’s Paul Norton). And both America Ferrara and Jennifer Lopez opted for mustard; the former in a Jenny Packham halter gown with Simon G jewelry, and the latter in boxy and sophisticated Giambattista Valli. “It was so different from anything I’ve done,” stated Lopez, who added even more pizzazz with 200 carats of Harry Winston diamond bling.
