While celebrities win awards for their talent and hard work at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards, at the pre-show red carpet, they’re judged based on something else: their outfits. This year’s Globes were one of the most dazzling of all, with the world’s best-known actors donning daring looks by the world’s most acclaimed designers. While it was difficult to pick the standout garments from a collection of well-dressed stars, we managed to narrow it down to six looks. Here is The Daily Californian’s guide to the best dressed celebrities at the Golden Globes.

Lupita Nyong’o — wearing Calvin Klein by Appointment

Acting isn’t the only talent that starlet Lupita Nyong’o is has she also knows how to style a good look. Nyong’o wore an eye-catching bright blue gown with sparkling accents to match her simple yet elegant Bulgari jewels. The actress completed the look with slicked-back hair, ensuring that the focus would be on her stunning outfit. Nyong’o’s cohesive elegance secured her a top spot on our best dressed list.

 

Constance Wu — wearing Vera Wang

Between her princess-inspired tulle dress and delicate diamond jewels, Constance Wu certainly looked the part of a crazy rich Asian on the red carpet. Wu’s flowy nude gown gave her a graceful and regal vibe, which was complemented by her tied-back hair and floor-length orange sash. Although this year marked Wu’s first Golden Globes nomination, she shined as bright as any of the other seasoned stars. It’s safe to say that she’ll be returning to serve more looks in future years.

 

Lady Gaga — wearing Valentino

Leave it to Lady Gaga to kick off awards season with a stunning gown, massive train and hair to match. Gaga’s Cinderella-esque Valentino dress turned heads with its striking powder-blue color and over-the-top train. It was beautifully embellished by her extraordinary diamond necklace. The look was complete with powder-blue, slicked back hair and on-brand dramatic eye makeup. Gaga has walked her fair share of red carpets, but her style is always exciting and fresh. We can’t wait to see what she wears next.

 

Billy Porter — wearing Randi Rahm

Billy Porter brought glamour and drama to the red carpet at the same level that he brought to his hit TV show “Pose.” While most men opted for classic black suits, Billy Porter wore an intricately embroidered suit and matching cape — complete with a striking hot pink lining. The outfit took six months to make and, according to Porter’s stylist, was just as much a political statement against anti-LGBT rhetoric as it was a fashion statement. This statement was certainly well-received by The Daily Cal!

 

Saoirse Ronan — wearing Gucci

Saorise Ronan has been walking red carpets since middle school, and in more recent years, has made a name for herself as a fashionable regular — this year’s Globes being no exception. Her flapper-esque chainmail gown gave off a vibe of 1920s luxury, complete with emerald statement earrings and a bold red lip. As her acting talents continue to amaze us, there are no doubts that her personal style will do the same.

 

Kiki Layne — wearing Dior

Kiki Layne was one of 2018’s biggest breakout stars after her role in “If Beale Street Could Talk,” and after her appearance at this year’s Golden Globes, it’s safe to say that she’s on her way to red carpet stardom as well. Layne looked ethereal and angelic in her ashy pink ballet-style gown. The look was complete with a slick updo, soft makeup and a diamond choker. We can only hope to see more of her on future red carpets, and based on her acclaimed performance, there’s no doubt that we will!

The 76th Golden Globes were last night, and considering it was a rather lackluster and mostly puzzling evening, it was pretty much just like any other day here at UC Berkeley.
