Fashion Flashback: The Memorable Short Dress & Pants Looks of the Golden Globes!


While I’m a major fan of the glorious ballgown on a red carpet, I’m always fascinated to study the non-traditional choices, which are becoming more & more the norm, including short dresses & pants / jumpsuits / tuxedos on female attendees. There are so many lists & galleries on social media & the internet recalling the best Golden Globe looks of all time, as well as the most extreme. However, let’s take some time to review the non-traditional, which are likely to appear on tonight’s red carpet for the highly-anticipated return of the controversial awards ceremony.

From mini to midi dresses, the red carpet is no stranger to short designs with some sparkle, structure, or volume, especially when making an elegant, playful style statement:

Gal Gadot, Jennifer Lopez, Reese Witherspoon, & Joey King in short dresses at the Golden Globes.
Reese Witherspoon, Kristen Wiig, Katharine McPhee, & Sarah Jessica Parker in short dresses at the Golden Globes.
Julianna Margulies, Heidi Klum, & Sarah Jessica Parker in short dresses at the Golden Globes.
Millie Bobby Brown, Elisabeth Moss, Halle Berry, & Sarah Jessica Parker in short dresses at the Golden Globes.

Pants looks come in all forms, on a deconstructed tuxedo, jumpsuit, & suit, imitating the dress look, but also playing with cut-outs, adornments, separates, & proportions. Black is the most popular option with a pants look, as seen below:

Maggie Gyllenhaal, Susan Kelechi Watson, & Laura Dern in pants at the Golden Globes.
Jennifer Aniston & Kyra Sedgwick in pants at the Golden Globes.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Taylor Schilling, Kathryn Hahn, Amy Poehler, & Octavia Spencer in pants at the Golden Globes.

The 55th Annual Grammy Awards are currently underway & there was a lot to talk about during tonight’s red carpet, especially since there was a lot of buzz going around behind the dress code & baring of certain body parts in order to keep the event classy & not trashy. Well, based on what we’ve seen from Beyoncé (in Osman), Rihanna (in custom Azzedine Alaia), Carrie Underwood (in Roberto Cavalli), Jennifer Lopez (in Anthony Vaccarello), Carly Rae Jepsen (in Roberto Cavalli), Kelly Rowland (in Georges Chakra), & Natasha Bedingfield (in Emerson), the night was all about effortless elegance, trendy black dresses, pretty lace accents, celebrating décolletage, & lots of sheer overlay. Some other favorites included Katy Perry (in Gucci), Adele (in Valentino), Florence Welch (in Givenchy), Taylor Swift (in J. Mendel), Nicole Kidman (in Vera Wang), & Faith Hill (in J. Mendel).
