The Golden Globes can be hit or miss when it comes to beauty looks. Think, somewhere between the insane debauchery of the MTV Music Video Awards and the refined and classy looks at the Oscars. Thankfully, it seemed like this year’s red carpet had a “less is much more than more is” vibe, which I was feeling. Usually when celebs stay super safe with their makeup and hair, I’m bored/over it/dead on their arrival, but I supported the following looks. (And everything else not on this list, I hated/doesn’t count. Sue me, Kirsten Dunst. Bye.)
1. Rosie-Huntington Whitely
Rosie looked like an actual queen/goddess/gold in human form. She was the golden globe statuette; the golden globe statuette was her.
2. Alicia Vikander
Simple metallic shadow, simple cranberry lips, pulled back braids, fresh skin. Done, done, done, and done Alicia. I can’t tell the difference between you and Rooney Mara (and tbh, I probably will never try), but who gives a fuck when you look this pretty. Rooney, who?!
Sophisticated, sleek, and not soothed to see Giuliana Rancic are three phrases I’d use to describe Zendaya’s aesthetic.
4. Olivia Wilde
The burgundy smokey eye is giving me (welcomed) flashback feelings to the sexual confusion I experienced watching her make out with Marissa Cooper.
5. Jenna Dewan Tatum
Mrs. Channing is having a great week. First, she humped her husband while lip syncing to the classic Ginuwine tune, “Pony” and people lost their shit they loved it so much. Now, this. Way to go, Jenna. You’re the second best thing to come from the “Step Up” franchise.
