The Best of the Golden Globes Red Carpet Fashion You Can Affordably Recreate

Did you watch the Golden Globes this year? Even if you didn’t, you’ve probably been exposed to the glamorous fashion on the red carpet. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite looks from the celebrity-filled night and picked some more affordable, wearable options for you to recreate these looks. Plus, every dress comes with Cash Back from Rakuten!

Trend: Baring it all

Interpret this how you want, but “showing skin” means a couple things for us: Literally showing skin and donning nude shades. We love it when we are feeling a bit bold with our look but want to leave things up to wonderment.

Sienna Miller wowed in a brightly colored Gucci gown with flattering, tasteful cutouts, while Saoirse Ronan dazzled in a nude, glittery Celine dress that proves less is definitely more.

Trend: The power suit

Phoebe Waller-Bride and Kerry Washington

Ladies, show them who’s boss when you arrive in this power suit. We love it by itself (but blinged out, of course) or simple and accented with body chains. Even if you don’t want to wear the entire suit, a cool blazer elevates any outfit.

Phoebe Waller-Bride basically dominated the Golden Globes red carpet in an embellished suit with a deep v-neck. Kerry Washington made us do a double take when she sashayed in with an open blazer and the body chain of all body chains.

Trend: Shoulder, prints and texture - oh my!

Now, the off-the-shoulder trend has been a big hit for a while, but it looks even better when you add more excitement with fun prints and texture. Jazz up your look with mix-and-match prints and fun appliques.

Zoe Kravitz pulled off one of our favorite looks of the night in a fun black and white polka dot dress. Beanie Feldstein kept it elegant in a pleated, navy off-the-shoulder gown with a beautiful 3D floral neckline.

Trend: Dramatic sleeves

Zoey Deutch and Kaitlyn Dever

There is little more we adore than big drama, and the bigger the sleeve, the better. Puffy sleeves, billowy sleeves, trumpet sleeves – you name it, we love it.

Zoey Deutch was a queen in her chartreuse-colored gown with a plunging neckline and dramatic sleeves, while Kaitlyn Dever became one to remember in this 70’s-floral-print inspired, puff-sleeved maxi.

Trend: Top it off with a bow

Scarlett Johansson and Nicole Kidman

Timeless, red showstoppers are one of our favorite looks, but throw on a big bow and we’re sold. It’s hard to compete with all of this dominance, and it’s even harder when the lady wearing it is an icon herself.

Scarlett Johansson made her presence so known in this big, red head-turner, accented with a giant bow to up the ante. Nicole Kidman proves red is her color in a structured, simple red masterpiece with – you guessed it – a bow on the back.
