The Golden Globes 19 red carpet wasn't especially exciting, but this means the looks were far more accessible.
It was an exciting Golden Globe awards ceremony because of all the winner shocks. A Star is Born was supposed to sweep the board, but only received one gong, for Best Song. Thank God for that, because it meant that Lady GaGa, who was nominated for a Best Actress award, got to show off her incredible Valentino gown. Hers was one of the only stand-out dresses of the whole affair; did anyone else get a real sense of deja vu?
I flicked through the red carpet galleries and had to check more than once if I was looking at this year's. So many of the dresses and the overall looks had just been done. There were the exceptions; the train of Lady Gaga's dress had its own handler, which is only right for the red carpet kween. She certainly was regal is lilac, but aside from the masses of material, her overall look isn't that inaccessible.
Her blue-tinged hair was pinned in a Grace Kelly bun, her eyes were smokey, the lip was nude, and her skin was a-glowin'. A makeup look fit for a bride, we say.
But though there weren't that many 'wow' moments on the red carpet, there was plenty of inspiration for future occasions.
I actually love GLOW star Alison's gown especially the bandeau top detail which modernises the popular style. It's her face that I want, though. GLOW by TV show title, eh, glow by nature. And, my, what a glow. If there's anything that this red carpet proves, it's that great looking skin is SO in.
Lana Condor (and Anthony De La Torre)
Another glow-licious lovely, Lana Condor (Lara Jean in To All The Boys I've Loved Before), wore every women's not-so-secret weapon, red lipstick. Curiously, it's matte, which isn't a usual pairing with a glowy look, but it definitely works.
Patricia Arquette won a best actress award for Escape at Dannemora. Her makeup was also 'natural', her skin looked amazing. We are glad her stylist chose a piled-up hair 'do because that's our favourite to do. The glasses were also a super touch.
Saoirse's makeup was low key, but we appreciate the dark coral lipstick. It's her hair that's doing the inspo, however. The straight, collar-bone-length, side-parted do was the perfect choice for her relatively simple (I said relatively) dress.
The star of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel - and best actress winner - was another sporter of the natural makeup look. So natural that it looks like she has all of her own eyebrows. We haven't seen eyebrows that normal on a celeb in a very long time. Is 2019 the year that ends the HD brows craze?
