golden globes red carpet best dressed

The Women of the Golden Globes

The Golden Globes kicked off award season on Monday night with a diverse and varied crowd of nominees. As a fashion-stylist-come-feminist I am introducing all the female winners inspiring us to aim high today on the Feminist Cleavage in their red carpet finery.

Best Original Song

Lady Gaga and Mark Ronson – “Shallow, A Star is Born”

Lady Gaga wears Valentino

“Gaga’s 17-second run at the song’s bridge is a vocal triumph that future generations will study. Gaga steals the show as easily in Hollywood as she does in pop.”

-Maura Johnston, Rolling Stone

Best Actress, Drama

Glenn Close – “The Wife”

Glenn Close wears Armani Prive

“Close’s career-best – unnervingly subtle, unreadably calm, simmering with self-control. Her Joan is a study in marital pain, deceit and the sexual politics of prestige. It’s a portrayal to put alongside Close’s appearances in Dangerous Liaisons and Fatal Attraction.”

– Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Best Actress, Comedy or Musical

Olivia Colman – “The Favourite”

Olivia Colman wears Stella McCartney

“Colman piles on the layers of trauma and neurosis, making her splenetic outbursts feel at once logical and entirely mysterious.”

– David Jenkins, Little White Lies

Best Supporting Actress

Regina King – “If Beale Street Could Talk”

Regina King wears Alberta Ferretti

“King in particular makes a huge impact. Two of the film’s most memorable moments focus around King’s ‘Sharon’.”

– Chris Evangelista,

Best Actress, TV Drama

Sandra Oh – “Killing Eve”

Sandra Oh wears Versace

“It’s a complicated role that also requires precise comic timing, and Oh nails every aspect of it. She brings a great deal of energy and skill to the role.”

– Maureen Ryan, Variety

Best Actress, TV/Comedy

Rachel Brosnahan – “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”

Rachel Brosnahan wears Prada

“Brosnahan’s fabulous performance in the title role: witnessing the transformation from good wife and nice daughter, self-weaponising through wit.”

– Sam Wollaston, The Gaurdian

Best actress in a limited series or motion picture made for TV

Patricia Arquette, “Escape at Dannemora”

Patricia Arquette wears Vivienne Westwood

“Arquette’s excellence as Tilly is the strongest selling point of the show.”

– Troy Patterson, The New Yorker

Best supporting actress in a series, limited series or motion picture made for television

Patricia Clarkson, “Sharp Objects”

Patricia Clarkson wears George Chakara

“Clarkson fully embodied the part adding an extra dimension to her every line”

– Hilary Weaver, Vanity Fair
