The most viral fashion moments in Golden Globes history because this year’s event is not being broadcast live
January tends to be a pretty dull and gray month, but the start of awards season is kind of a bright spot. While we might not be doing much (and who really wants to do it after the excesses of the holiday season?) – we can at least ogle the celebrities in their most glitzy outfits.
However, we’re going to be deprived of a star-studded red carpet for this year’s Golden Globes on January 9. The organizer of the event, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), announced that it would be a “private event,” and will not even be broadcast live.
This means there is no red carpet, and US media have reported that there will be no famous hosts – instead, the winners will be updated on the Golden Globes website. (goldenglobes.com) and on social media.
In 2021, we got at least a virtual red carpet due to the ongoing pandemic, with stars dressing from the comfort of their own homes. The news comes after a difficult time for the HFPA which was criticized last year for having no black members.
It’s a bummer for anyone who was eagerly awaiting to see what the red carpet trends would look like in 2022. Fortunately, the history of the event saw nothing less than phenomenal outfits that went instantly viral. …
While we might be used to the extravagant dresses on the red carpet these days, in 1991 things were more stripped down – and you really couldn’t be cooler than Whoopi Goldberg’s bright orange mini dress with a hemline. asymmetric. If social media was a thing back then, this is the outfit we would all have been talking about.
Jamie Lee Curtis pulled off old Hollywood glamor at the 1995 event, wearing a tight white dress and matching stole.
Halle Berry’s 2003 Globes outfit is particularly memorable, as she went for the full princess look. It’s basically a prom fashion fantasy, featuring beaded accents, a fishtail skirt, and a matching shrug.
Jennifer Lopez normally goes viral for her sexy outfits, and 2009 was no different. Dressed in a liquid gold Marchesa dress with artful draping, JLo really took the ‘golden’ theme of the event and followed it.
Over the past few years, capes have become a mainstay of the red carpet – and we can thank Lupita Nyong’o for that. She arguably started the trend for elegant caped evening dresses in 2014, in a fire-red Ralph Lauren dress.
Emma Stone is another trailblazer – women in pants became more and more common during awards season, but they were rare in 2015. Enter: Stone in a Lanvin jumpsuit, complete with black tailored pants and a jeweled bodice .
While a specific outfit didn’t necessarily go viral at the 2018 Golden Globes, the entire red carpet certainly did. Almost all of the stars wore black to support the Time’s Up initiative, to protest against sexual harassment and gender inequality.

You can almost always expect a jaw-dropping Billy Porter fashion moment on the red carpet, and he certainly delivered at the 2020 Globes. Dressed in ethereal white, Porter accentuated his bespoke suit with a long train. feathers – proving once again why he is one of the most exciting voices in menswear today.
JLo isn’t one to play it safe with her fashion choices – while they don’t always hit the mark, they are at least memorable. Her Valentino 2020 outfit proved to be quite controversial, with some punters wondering if it was possible for a bow to be too much big.
