The BEST Golden Globes Dresses of All Time

Same Moira…same. The hilarious and iconic Moira from Schitts Creek says it all…award season is the BEST season!! Not only do we get all our favourite celebrities receive awards they deserve but my favourite part has to be the red carpet glam!!

As we all know, tonight marks the 78th annual Golden Globes, celebrating the best moments and acting throughout TV and film. The hilarious duo Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are hosting!! Sadly, this is just another event COVID has ruined and we wont be able to see all our favourite people in one room or surprising us with incredible looks walking across the red carpet but…we have to make the most of it! The ceremony is virtual, which means the red carpet is as well too! Let’s hope for some at-home, unique red carpet glam that we can remember forever!

This article idea came to me at 12am on Friday and I had to follow through with it because I am having so much fun digging up some pictures and old Golden Globe fashion archives!! I am going to take you back to the beginning of time…kidding the beginning of GOLDEN GLOBE time, and I am going to show you my personal favourite, all time best dresses from this award show!!

Ever since the beginning of the Golden Globes in 1944, the ceremony has conjured up some stunning, all around the world fashion moments. From Old Hollywood Glamour, to 90s poofy gowns, to the unique and storytelling dresses of the 21st century, fashion is forever changing!

I am currently taking a Fashion Industry Essentials course with Parsons School of Design in New York and I most recently learned that what a celebrity wears to a red carpet event defines themselves and is carefully curated and picked to tell a specific story. Especially in the most recent years, other than the fashion, the red carpet has become super hyper-professional. A celebrity can pick how they want to convey so much about themselves based on what they are wearing to a red carpet event.

Here are the BEST Golden Globe red carpet moments of all time!

Marilyn Monroe, 1962

Of course, my number one contender is my icon Marilyn Monroe in 1962. Her sparkly dress and her blonde bob define Old Hollywood Glamour!!

Cher, 1973

Miss Cher! Representing the 70s in this beautiful and distinct fur piece with a fur throw on top!

Melba Moore, 1987

Representing the 80s in this beautiful puff-shouldered red gown, that could appear anywhere on a runway today is the American singer, Melba Moore! Red lipstick matching the bright red dress tells represents a bold and strong personality.

You all know that the 90s was my favourite era…be prepared for quite a few dresses from this time!!! I have decided to show you guys the actresses then and now, demonstrating the style change with each era!

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, 1990 & 2017

Staring off the list in the 90s with Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who I call my mom’s twin! Seriously…looking at old pictures of my mom they look identical!! Looking at the 90s I see a mix of elegant and grunge with a touch of class. Moving forward to 2017, the dress choices are a lot more bold and classy as well!

Uma Therman, 1995 & 2014

Uma Therman!!! Don’t you just love seeing the fashion transition statement from the 90s to now?! The fashion looks celebrities take on these days seem to be more bold and create more of a statement compared to before where the red carpet was more of a simple event. As I learned, the red carpet in the past 10 years have been curated and considered much more high profile than ever!

Sandra Bullock, 1998 & 2014

If there is one celebrity I would love to look like I would have to say Sandra Bullock. This girl has NOT aged one bit!! From the classy beaded gown in the 90s to the bold, pink black and blue colours, the range is exquisite!

Cameron Diaz, 1999

Cameron Diaz, 1999

I love this look because it is the great definition of the era. GRUNGE 90s! Her hair and makeup both scream grunge and fun and the look is very different compared to other red carpet 90s looks we’ve seen!

Onto the 2000s!!

Sarah Jessica Parker, 2003

Sarah Jessica Parker, 2003

SJP has had many many red carpet looks but I think this has got to be my favourite!! Now this is not a dress but a classy, silky black corset and loose pants deserve a Golden Globe itself for fashion.

Scarlett Johansson, 2004 & 2020

Our MCU Queen herself…Scarlett Johansson everyone *cue the applause*

Now can we just talk about the STUNNING most unforgettable red dress she wore to the Golden Globes last year?! If that doesn’t scream badass and confident I really don’t know what does!! Everyones eyes were on her fabulous crimson silk faille strapless gown, custom made from Vera Wang and she accessorized it with a stunning diamond necklace!

I could go on forever and ever about every celebrity out there but here are some of my other favourite female celebrities decked out in designer!

Nicole Kidman, 2006

Ms. Gaga deserves a double feature! Look at this elegant, magical gown created by Valentino Haute Couture in 2019. Absolutely stunning I cannot believe my eyes! Her and Scarlett really outdid themselves with the gowns!!

Joey King, 2020

As I mentioned before, a dress always tells a story or defines who a person is. Look at the creativity put into this dress!! This may be the coolest dress I have ever seen!! Joey King in Iris Van Herpen, 2020

100 Years of Fashion

For this week’s article I decided to do something a little different. I’m going to tell the story of how fashion has evolved through pictures and fun descriptions! I created this fashion zine in my third year of university and had so much fun making it! How could I not share it with all you guys?!

From the 1910’s to 2010, various trends have evolved and made a huge comeback, that many love! It is so fascinating to study the different styles that have come and gone over the years!! Roaring 20’s, High Society 50’s and Grunge 90’s are my all time favourite fashion era’s!! I love how every fashion era possesses a bold and unique statement that makes each and every year unique in it’s own way!

What is your favourite fashion era?

Capeside’s Fashion Couture

Jen Lindley, Pacey Witter, Dawson Leery, Joey Potter

Everyone, including myself, who watched Dawson’s Creek is probably obsessed with the Joey-Pacey love triangle that surfaced from season two and put us through a roller coaster of emotions (which was definitely worth the watch). If you weren’t rooting for Joey and Pacey, the entire duration of the show…I have no words for you. Netflix once stated in a tweet, “Pacey Witter: Setting unrealistic expectations for boyfriends since 1998” …and honestly, they couldn’t have said it any better.  

Although, that wasn’t the only memorable thing about the show. Throughout six amazing seasons, I also became obsessed with the featured Capeside couture. From Joey Potter’s tomboy looks, to Jen Lindley’s New York style choices, it is interesting to see which 2000s fashion trends have made a huge comeback.

Joey Potter; Season 3 Episode 15


Overalls are the one piece of clothing I believe will never go out of style. Whether you pair them with a long sleeve, or a crop top, they can add comfort and style to a “facile” outfit choice. Overalls were my go-to last summer when I would go on adventures with my friends. It is a quick, go-to outfit choice. Pair it with a cute coloured bandeau and you’re ready to go! Overalls were part of the iconic Joey Potter (Katie Holmes) tomboy wardrobe and my favourite look had to be in season 3 when she was painting her mural. She paired the overalls with pigtails and a cute bandana.

Patterned Shirts

Pacey Witter (Joshua Jackson) was the “King” of patterned shirts. In almost every scene if it wasn’t a long sleeve shirt, he was always wearing an extravagant patterned button up with a colourful t-shirt underneath. I would have to say, Pacey’s wardrobe reflected his character immensely…wild and fun. Working in retail, I notice that many men’s button downs still have captivating and compelling prints. From animal print, to floral print the 90s trend of patterned shirts have definitely made a comeback.

Bucket Hats

Bucket Hats have made a HUGE comeback and are more popular now than ever. Whether you are going to the beach or just want to accessorize your city look, a bucket hat is the perfect pair. I’m guilty of purchasing a couple of them this past summer and wore them all the time. Jen, Joey and Pacey have all worn bucket hats throughout the seasons. Some being very extravagant and other being the typical black or beige bucket hat.

Dawson Leery (James Van Der Beek)

Plaid Flannels

Sad to say my least favourite character, Dawson Leery (James Van Der Beek) always wore these, BUT it has become a huge fashion trend this year. Plaid flannels are a full fall mood. From oversized plaid jackets to plaid flannels of every colour, plaid has made a huge comeback! You can dress it up with a pair of leather leggings, create a casual look with a pair of jeans and even throw it over a t-shirt. Plaid flannels are an easy and effortless look, when you’re just hanging out with friends or honestly heading anywhere…just throw on a flannel.

Oversized Denim Jackets

Even I can agree that oversized denim jackets have been around forever. Oversized denim jackets can be paired with a cute coloured sweatsuit set or even be paired with a cute night on the town summer look! This is a staple and versatile clothing item for both men and women, that can be worn during every season and I see it being a trend for a very long time to come!!

Joey Potter (Katie Holmes)

Crop Tops

A huge fashion statement in the 90s and more popular now than ever!! This article of clothing was an essential fashion item for ladies in the 90s. A crop top was either paired with a denim skirt, high rise shorts or low rise jeans to show off figure. Fast-forward to 2020, you still see these trends around!! You can dress up or dress down a crop top…it is perfect for any occasion!! Pair it with some mom jeans or even sweat pants and you are good to hit the streets! This chic combination is a favourite of many celebrities and street wear models!

Minus all the drama and best moments in Dawson’s Creek, the fashion was another obsession of mine from the show. If you know me, you know that if I could take a time machine, I would love to have been a 20-year-old in the 90s, witnessing all these trends, music, shows and movies, first hand.

P.S. this is for all you Jacey lovers who do not want to believe they got a divorce and who want to believe they are still together!

Also one last question for all my Dawson Creek fans…
