Golden Globes 2023 Red Carpet Rundown – Part One

Posted on January 12, 2023

We’ve spend days giving plenty of attendees the spotlight treatment, but it’s time to start wrapping the 2023 Golden Globes up and putting them to bed, good and judged. Let’s go!


Austin Butler in Gucci

We remain impressed by his swag, but we couldn’t believe he’s still talking in Elvis’ voice. That’s just a weensy bit pretentious.


Britt Lower in Bach Mai

She CLEARLY loves it. We go back and forth on it. The dress is very literal in its early ’90s-ness and the gloves are way too heavy for it, but we can’t deny that it’s an eye-catching look that really suits her.


Claire Danes in Giambattista Valli

If it didn’t have that diamond pattern it might not have looked so much like a chenille bed spread. That cleavage bow looks silly. She needs an eye makeup consult stat.


Elizabeth Debicki in Dior

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS? How does Dior take a 6’3″ goddess and turn her into this? The color is drab, the design is dull, and the bust is a crime against nature. Lovely necklace, though.


Emma D’Arcy in Acne Studios

LOVE this. It’s edgy, it’s chic, it positively REEKS of high fashion. As they noted on the red carpet, showing up in pants and half a skirt is like the height of nonbinary fashion. Love how the hair, eye makeup and gloves all match. Normally we’d be against that level of matchiness, but it really works for them.


Hannah Einbinder in Carolina Herrera

She seems to be getting away from the sapphic suiting and is entering a more traditional, downright retro phase of her style evolution. The dress is lovely on her, but that bust twist would work better without the black peeking out from the top. We also would have advised not going for such a literally retro hair style.


Janelle James in Safiyaa

Flawless. No notes. Clearly a personal best for her.


Jean Smart in Tadashi Shoji

Spectacular. It’s been a lot of fun watching her navigate the modern red carpet and find her style footing.


Jennifer Coolidge in Dolce & Gabbana

The hair’s a little puffy, but aside from that, we have no complaints. This might be the best dress she’s worn in a while. We don’t think we’ve ever seen her in black before but it looks good on her. The straps may have been a necessity, but they do tend to detract a little from the design.


Jenny Slate in Rodarte

It’s very pretty – and surprisingly simple for Rodarte – but that color is way too harsh for her. LOVE the earrings, though.


Jeremy Allen in Dior

Can’t argue with any of that. Work those curls, sir.


Jessica Chastain in Oscar de la Renta

That nude backing color pretty much ruins the design.


Kerry Condon in Brandon Maxwell

This is the best she’s looked all season. We get the impression her style approach is fuss-free, but that doesn’t mean her ensembles have to be boring. The jewelry really makes the look.


Li Jun Li in Dolce & Gabbana

Sometimes, you don’t need a reinvented wheel or a pile of trends to make an impact. This is absolutely stunning.


Milly Alcock in Givenchy

At one point, she was standing with Emma D’Arcy on stage and we had to pause and give a silent compliment to the House of the Dragon casting director, because they really do look like the same person at different ages.  This is pretty, but we don’t like the neckline at all.


N. T. Rama Rao Jr. in Ralph Lauren

Scorching hot.


Niecy Nash in Dolce & Gabbana

We hate to keep repeating ourselves, but this is another look that’s so perfect, we have nothing to add – except to suggest you take note of how many great looks D&G supplied the stars this night. They remain problematic little bitches, but the reason so many stars and stylists stick with them is because they deliver the red carpet goods consistently.


Rhea Seehorn in Naeem Khan

Longtime readers might be surprised to find out that this was one of our favorite looks of the night. We have a tendency to rail against black-backed florals because we almost never like them, but this is really gorgeous on her. The bag’s a little “free with purchase,” though.


Sheryl Lee Ralph in Aliétte

This is stunning and our only quibble with it is that it looked very heavy and a little hard to wrangle. The color looks amazing on her.


Tyler James Williams in Amiri

We have to offer the deepest apologies to Tyler. The only reason this fine look is not included in the Gentlemen With Swag post is because it kind of got lost in all the shuffling around. We’re not super-crazy about the wet spot effect (if only because we had to scramble to make sure he wasn’t actually wet from all the rain), but we LOVE the shape and style.
