Golden Globes 2019: Lady Gaga’s blue gown, Timothée Chalamet's harness wow the red carpet

Gaga stole the show in Valentino but there were plenty of other eye-catching looks

Bright colours were back on the Golden Globes red carpet on Sunday (January 6), with pop superstar Lady Gaga, dressed in lavender, leading a trend for old school glamour.

 

She’s worn a meat dress before but Lady Gaga’s lavender blue strapless gown with its massive train and voluminous sleeves stole the show at this year’s Golden Globes for less controversial reasons. The musician and actor scooped an award for her role in A Star is Born and also turned heads on Sunday night in a custom Valentino Couture dress which she accessorised with blue hair.

Nicole Kidman was compared to a tall glass of red wine in her maroon Michael Kors column dress, only losing fashion points for carrying a silver disco ball as a handbag. The ruby and diamond jewels from Harry Winston mostly made up for it though.

Unusually for an awards like this, the men’s outfits sparked much of the chatter on social media. French actor Timothée Chalamet arrived wearing what looked like a sparkly harness with straps on his black shirt causing much twitter comment. The outfit by Louis Vuitton was described by the designers as an “embroidered bib”.

The gratifyingly lavish outfit – including a cape and tulle shirt – worn by actor Billy Porter took six months to make according to designer Randi Rahm.

The most eye-catching and widely applauded men’s ensemble came from Cody Fern who went an androgynous route with a partly chiffon shirt and Maison Margiela heeled boots.
