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!
