On Sunday, January 7, millions of people tuned in to the 81st Golden Globe Awards for the annual star-studded occasion and the kick-off of this year’s awards season. And, of course, red carpet fashion made a major 2024 entrance as well.
In celebration of this red carpet’s return, we’re looking back 35 years, from 2024 to 1989, and showing off the best red carpet looks from each — that is, except for 2008, when the Writers Guild of America went on strike and the whole event was canceled, and 2022, when backlash against the Hollywood Foreign Press put the award ceremony on hold.
From the white satin gown Audrey Hepburn donned while receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award in 1990 and Saoirse Ronan’s #METOO-inspired black Versace gown in 2018 to Michelle Yeoh’s proof that the peplum is back in 2023, these are the best looks we’ve seen in over three decades of the Golden Globes.
Like what you see? How about some more R29 goodness, right here?
