Unless you take fashion WAY too seriously, you would not have seen anything LIFE-ALTERING on the red carpet at last night’s “Golden Globes,” but there were some mildly interesting looks, at least to a casual observer.
Here are a few highlights:
For starters, several women were wearing pantsuits, like Evan Rachel Wood, Octavia Spencer, and Kathryn Hahn. Some people thought it was a statement, like a Hillary Clinton thing or a feminism thing.

For what it’s worth, Evan said, “I’ve been to the Globes six times, and I’ve worn a dress every time, and I love dresses. I’m not trying to protest dresses.
“I wanted to make sure that young women and girls knew that they aren’t a requirement, and that you don’t have to wear one if you don’t want to. Just be yourself, because your worth is much more than that.”
A LOT of women went with a glimmering ‘liquid metal‘ look, including Sarah Paulson, Nicole Kidman, Sofia Vergara, Regina King, Chrissy Teigen, Ruth Negga from AMC’s “Preacher”, Claire Foy from “The Crown”, Tracee Ellis Ross from “Black-ish”, and even Millie Bobby Brown from “Stranger Things”.

Michelle Williams and her friend Busy Philipps continued their tradition of going together. They’ve been friends since they were on “Dawson’s Creek”.
As for the men, the dominating trend for the 74th year in a row was…black and white tuxedos. While there are lists of the Best-Dressed Men, when we checked, there wasn’t even ONE specifically for the “Worst Dressed Men.”
Although, “The Onion” had a funny joke about how Ryan Gosling was caught sneaking by on the red carpet in a full-body red camouflage outfit.
Here are ten other interesting fashion notes from the Globes:
