Awards season is officially upon us, and while this year’s events look different than the usual weekend-after-weekend red carpet extravaganzas we may be used to, we have to give it to the stars — and their glam teams, of course — for still pulling out all the stops when it comes to beauty looks. Whether they joined the celebrations from the comfort of their home via Zoom, or showed up to the socially distanced 78th annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony, celebrities made it abundantly clear that the show must go on. And so, we present the Golden Globes 2021 beauty moments that we’re still thinking about this morning.
Jared Leto’s grown-out ombré hair
The category is: grown-out, one-year-without-a-trim, somehow-still-luscious eleganza. The winner? Jared Leto, of course. We’d expect nothing less from the actor whose hair we’ve been collectively drooling over for years.
Laverne Cox’s milkmaid braid
Donning a milkmaid braid courtesy of Kim Kimble and a smoky eye and red lip by makeup artist Tay Rivera, Laverne Cox’s gorgeous beauty look was simultaneously low-key and glam — an always-perfect combination, if you ask us.
Andra Day’s glowing skin
Makeup artist Porsche Cooper used Chanel makeup (including the Rouge Coco Bloom lipstick collection, launching next month) to achieve Andra Day’s enviable glow, gorgeous gold eyeshadow and glossy red lip. Proof that sometimes the most classic looks can be the most striking.
Rosamund Pike’s unforgettable bob
Have you ever seen a blunter bob? We’re still not over Rosamund Pike’s razor-sharp ‘do, which — as Trixie Mattel says — probably requires a trim “every six days.” Well worth the upkeep, we’d say.
Cynthia Erivo’s purple eyeliner
Makeup artist Terrell Mullin used Armani Beauty products to achieve Cynthia Erivo’s stunning nude lip and purple cat eye. The unexpected combo of purple paired with Erivo’s eye-catching neon green Valentino Couture gown made this a knockout moment we won’t soon forget.
Anya Taylor-Joy’s cascading locks
Gen Z may have sworn off side parts for good, but Anya Taylor-Joy’s deep side part and long, cascading hair — courtesy of hairstylist Gregory Russell — is glossy, glamorous and the perfect complement to her slinky green Dior gown.
Angela Bassett’s waist-length braid
Hairstylist Randy Stodghill used Phyto products to achieve Angela Bassett’s sleek, show-stopping braid that seemed to never end (and who would want it to?).
