The 75th annual Golden Globes took place last Sunday and it was such a historical night, as all Hollywood wore black to support the #TimesUp movement to stop sexual harrassment and misconduct. The ceremony is the first major award show to have place after the Harvey Weinstein sexual allegations emerged. The biggest names and a-listers in Hollywood showed up at the Golden Globes to celebrate the best films and TV shows of last year, but it was all about showing solidarity to the victims of sexual harassment and assault and bring attention to gender inequality.
The show had so many highlights, the one that stuck into my head the most and i’m sure a lot of people also is Oprah Winfrey’s acceptance speach for receiving the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award. She has became the first black woman to ever receive this award and delivered an inspiring speech to empower women around the world: “I want all the girls watching here now to know that a new day is on the horizon. And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say #metoo again,” she said. Her speach was so empowering and inspirational, it left the entire room in a standing ovation and it sure left me with tears in my eyes.
Another moment that definitely made my day is when Natalie Portman gave us all life, by throwing some major shade at the Best Director for a motion picture category, for not having any female nominees by saying: “and here are all the male nominees”. That girl did not come to play and I am living for it… Savage!
Now let’s move to the fun part shall we, and let’s talk fashion. because even though the red carpet was covered in black it did not disappoint. The designers did a great job by delivering amazing dresses for such an incredible night. These are my 6 favourite looks from the 2018 Golden Globes and I should note that the ‘all black’ ensembles actually look chic AF.
Dakota Johnson in Gucci
What can you expect from a Fifty Shades of Grey star other than to look hot?! The dress looks so simple at the first but wait until you see the back, there’s a party going on. She looked absolutly stunning and the intricate embellishments on the back made a beautiful surprise.
Kendall Jenner in Giambattista Valli
Although i’m not so sure what the 22 yo model was doing at the Golden Globes, but she showed up in the most extra version a Kardashian/Jenner clan member would be expected to show up. I mean we got to give it to her: The girl can rock a red carpet! She looks like she just came from a fairytale and walked into the red carpet with that Giambattista Valli gown but my favorite part is those Christian Louboutin stilettos.
Zoe Kravitz in Saint Laurent
While this dress somewhat looks simple in shape, it screams sexiness and drama. It’s strapless and features a fitted bodice and length, slitted skirt that ends in a slight flare. When the skirt opens, Kravitz’s sky-high heels pop out from underneath. To finish the look, she has gone for oversized emerald green earing and a matching ring.
Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton
The next Lara Croft, Alicia Vikander, channeled Victorian vibes at the Golden Globes this year, rocking a high neck black maxi dress by Louis Vuitton. The dress is modestly made but it features an open back and the embellishement definitely makes it red carpet worthy. Simply elegant!
Diane Kruger in Prada
Do I really need to talk about this dress? I mean it has a cape y’all. Diane looked simply stunning in this black gown with polka dot sheer detailing, gunmetal beaded edges and that dramatic flowing train.
Margot Robbie in Gucci
The drama of the shoulders and the plunging V neck line on this dress gave me life and the floral embellishements adds a nice touch. The I-Tonya star paired the look with a black clutch and sandals and wore her hair in classic waves with a bold hot pink lip.
