After a hiatus,
the Golden Globes are back for 2023. The night that has been referred to as TV’s biggest night is finally celebrating their 80th anniversary, and the stars did not disappoint when it came down to their looks for the evening.
As the first award show of the new year, celebs were itching to show out in their best formal looks. The night included exposed thongs, sheer and lace moments, and an
appearance from Rihanna. While she may have skipped the red carpet, there were plenty of other stars ready for the furious snapping of the paparazzi.
Some red carpet standouts also took on the responsibility of presenting awards, such as
Wednesday star Jenna Ortega and Pose actor Billy Porter, who presented the honorary Carol Burnett award to director Ryan Murphy. Porter mentioned in his speech that Murphy requested he wear the black velvet tuxedo gown from the 2019 Oscars, but Porter decided to one-up his past look and recreate the gown in a stunning magenta hue.
Some of the designers who got multiple red carpet and show appearances included Gucci and Christian Siriano, with other standouts like custom Chanel and Prada. Ahead, take a look through some of the best looks of the evening.
