STYLE Editors Dissect the Golden Globes ‘Red Carpet’

Awards season was always going to look different this year, with COVID restrictions necessitating a heavily socially distanced take on what would normally be some of the most highly attended A-List events of the showbiz calendar.

But while it’s always difficult to be the first one off the mark, today’s Golden Globes ceremony set a solid bar for the weeks ahead, with many ‘attendees’ rising to the occasion of a digital ‘red carpet’, Zooming in from their homes in full Hollywood glam.

Here’s who we’re taking inspo from next #FormalFriday…

They say Emily in Paris didn’t deserve any gongs (or noms for that matter) but Lily Collins killed it in the style stakes if you ask me. I love the level of detail in this embroidered Saint Laurent gown, as well as her show-stopping Cartier jewels. – Ashley Wallace, culture editor

She looks unreal in the dress alone, but with its statement sleeves and regal train, the dramatic proportions of Anya Taylor-Joy’s matching overcoat take this emerald green Dior Haute Couture look to best-dressed territory. Celeb stylist extraordinaire Law Roach strikes again. – Phoebe Watt, associate editor

Count. Me. In. For every part of Julia Garner’s knockout GG look – from the black and white Prada dress with the plunging V neckline and ‘20s inspired detailing to the complementary chunky jewels and absolutely flawless makeup by Hung Vanngo (that glossy red lip!) to the perfect French twist finished with a crystal hair pin. *chef’s kiss* – Josie Steenhart, sub-editor

It’s very Chanel, but I also love the whimsical nature of Daisy Edgar-Jones’ daisy lace (how fitting!) number, even more so because she appears to be jumping on a bed and touching the roof in playful celebration while wearing it, which I can get down with. Sometimes awards looks can seem so static and statuesque – particularly as this year most are solely captured for the ‘gram, it’s nice to see some real joy and emotion, even though she didn’t win her nominated category.

Of course if you are going for the perfectly poised look, my second choice would be Elle Fanning in icy Gucci. It’s a shame she had no red-carpet to walk because this look was perfectly ‘Old Hollywood’ without looking fussy, with the dress, the jewels, the hair and makeup all coming together like a dream. – Megan Bedford, beauty editor



Levis x Ganni Collab Launches

Globally, denim sales might have dipped dramatically over the past year, with fewer people feeling compelled to stock up on skinny jeans amid a pandemic that’s kept them locked indoors for the better part of 12 months. But here in New Zealand, where COVID-19 has long-since ceased interfering with our daily lives and wardrobe choices, denim is as ubiquitous as ever.

To that end, fans of Danish brand Ganni should set aside some room in their drawers for the second, limited edition Ganni x Levi’s collab, dropping online and at select Ganni and Levi’s retailers this week. A hotly-anticipated follow-up to last year’s Ganni x Levi’s ‘Love Letter’ collection made entirely from upcycled materials, the 2021 capsule builds upon a brand partnership centred around responsible fashion, sustainability, and design innovation.

Utilising a special cottonised hemp made from rain-fed hemp crops, which significantly decreases the impact of each garment on the environment (denim manufacturing is notorious for the excessive quantities of water required), the 14-piece ready-to-wear collection is just that — a tight edit of ultra-wearable styles you will reach for over and over, thanks to their endless mixing and matching potential.

From chambray shirts with statement Peter Pan collars, to high-waist shorts, flared jeans and and empire-line denim dresses, the silhouettes speak to Levi’s strong, ’70s influences, while unique design details such as the faded rose motif seen throughout the collection imbues it with Ganni’s own distinct style signature.

For his part, Ganni creative director Ditte Reffstrup remembers stepping into the Levi’s HQ “and seeing team members wearing GANNI and Levi’s together and thinking; this collaboration feels so right.” Like the perfect pair of jeans, we certainly couldn’t imagine a better fit.
