The end of the red carpet era: why even Jenna Ortega and Millie Alcock couldn’t save the Golden Globes 2023?
On January 11, The Beverly Hilton hosted the 80th Golden Globe Awards.
In its 80-year history, the red carpet of the film awards has seen many top-tier actors and actresses, couture dresses from legendary designers and iconic moments.
In the middle of the 20th century, Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe shone at the Golden Globes. They were then replaced by Cher, Barbra Streisand and Meryl Streep. Well, then came the era of Johnny Depp, Winona Ryder, Julia Roberts and Brad Pitt. The images of these movie stars have gone down in history forever, securing their status as style icons.
Did anyone manage to join the ranks of the best dressed honorary rating this year? Rather no than yes (alas and ah)! It seems that the golden age of the red carpet has sunk into oblivion, leaving us with only tremulous memories of how it used to be. There were catastrophically few A-list stars at the jubilee (!) Golden Globe, and those who did make it were not able to really please us.
Of course, we do not take into account Eddie Redmayne in a dark brown Valentino suit with an accent flower on the lapel, Anya Taylor-Joy in a rich yellow Christian Dior set, Letitia Wright in Prada and Jessica Chastain in a translucent Oscar de la Renta dress embroidered with rhinestones.
Even Wednesday Addams aka Jenna Ortega, whose appearance everyone was waiting for with such trepidation, could not produce that very wow-effect.
But her colleague on the series Percy Hynes White was a pleasant surprise. The actor appeared at the awards in a total-black look, consisting of a cape jacket, a thin turtleneck and flared trousers.
Emma D’Arcy and Millie Alcock were also able to please us a little. The former preferred a free-cut men’s suit and added cobalt-colored gloves to it, while the latter decided to bet on a Givenchy dress with an impressive neckline.
