Miss Awkwafina had herself a banner night at the Golden Globes, making history as the first Asian-American woman to win an actor award (and sadly, standing as only one of two major award winners of color this year). But from a fashion perspective, it just felt like another great night in a long line of them. Girlfriend’s really figured out her red carpet style and the Globes events of the weekend gave her the chance to show it off.

As we noted in our *ahem* piece for Cosmopolitan last night, her style sweet spot is somewhere smack in the middle of sophisticated and quirky. She looks fantastic in semi-classic styles with freshened-up twists. In this case, the mismatched houndstooths really work – to our surprise, since you’d think something like this would look terrible in pictures. Our quibbles: We know she favors the too-long sleeve, but it gives off a little-girl vibe that doesn’t suit her personality. Also: the hem’s a little low. And she could’ve used a belt. Cute bag, though.

We ADORE this look. The last several years have seen an explosion of womenswear looks utilizing tuxedo motifs and while we’ve loved a lot of the fresher takes, we were beginning to think everything that could have been done with the basic tux to interpret it for women has been done. And sure, a tuxedo jacket with a long black skirt isn’t anything earth-shattering, but the combination of the two plus that fabulous blouse and collar just look amazing on her. And we’re so glad she wore her hair back and off her face (which she doesn’t do nearly enough). The styling is perfect.
