From rallying speeches and pink chainmail to thermal jeans and high street shoes, these are the highlights from 2019’s Golden Globe Awards

  • The cast of Killing Eve ruled the red carpet

    Jodie Comer swapped her now-infamous bubblegum-pink Molly Goddard dress for a sleek, black Ralph & Russo number while joined by her Killing Eve castmates on the red carpet. The show’s writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge opted for a red sequined dress from Galvan, while Sandra Oh chose a custom Atelier Versace gown. Oh made history (twice) at the awards, as both the first Asian American woman to win multiple awards at the Golden Globes and the first to host it. During her emotional acceptance speech, Oh thanked her parents (who applauded from the audience) in English and Korean.

  • Janelle Monae looked incredible in Chanel

    Given Monae’s previous record for spectacular outfits (which include her Pride rainbow dress at the BET Awards, the ginormo top hat she wore to the 2011 MET gala and, of course, those pink pussy pants that she wore in her Pynk music video), we would expect nothing less than for her to turn up decked in pieces from Chanel’s Egyptian-inspired Metier’s d’Art collection, complete with a Jackie Kennedy space-age foil gold pillbox hat. Is she the only person who could pull off this look? Probably, yes.

  • Lady Gaga channeled the spirit of Judy Garland

    Never one to underdress, Lady Gaga went full Hollywood in a dramatic, sweeping blue Valentino gown – which many have pointed out looks like the one worn by Judy Garland in the 1954 version of A Star Is Born. "We didn’t say that no, but it looks an awful lot like that, doesn’t it? She looks beautiful. This is Valentino Couture Creation for me custom but, yeah, that’s special, except I’m missing the gloves,” Lady Gaga commented.

  • Jameela Jamil wore jeans under her dress

    Tweeting from the car on the way to the event last night, Jamil tweeted: “An experienced woman wears jeans under her Golden Globes gown because it’s forking COLD." Dressed in this year’s official Pantone colour, Living Coral, she hid her thermal skinny jeans under a pretty strapless Monique Lhuillier gown. Later in the evening, broadcasters E! News pranked the actress by captioning her as Kamilah Al-Jamil (the name of her sister and arch-nemesis on her show The Good Place). Responding today, Jamil shared the tweet adding: “When your fictional sister from The Good Place steals your spotlight at the Golden Globes."

  • Olivia Colman won a best actress award

    Olivia Colman took the award for best actress in a comedy or musical for her role as Queen Anne in The Favourite. Dressed in Stella McCartney, she fielded questions on what it’s like to be an older woman in Hollywood at the press conference afterwards by stating: “The older you get, the more you have to say. Also, the people in charge of the remote are the women, they want to hear those stories.”

  • Regina King gave a rallying speech in pink chainmail

    Regina King used her acceptance speech for best supporting actress in If Beale Street Could Talk as an opportunity to continue the conversation around gender parity in Hollywood and beyond. Dressed in pink custom Alberta Ferretti decked with sequins mimicking chainmail, she looked like a warrior as she delivered a rallying cry to extend opportunities to women. “I am going to use my platform to say right now that in the next two years, everything that I produce [...] that it's fifty percent women,” she said. “I just challenge anyone out there who is in a position of power, not just in our industry, in all industries, I challenge you to challenge yourselves and stand with us in solidarity and do the same."

  • The Fiji Water girl was the most papped celeb of the night

    If you thought Lady Gaga or Olivia Colman were the biggest personalities to grace last night’s Golden Globes with their presence, you are sorely wrong. The award for most persistent dedication to getting photographed goes to none other than the Fiji Water girl, who stationed herself on the red carpet to hand out water to guests and managed to photobomb countless pictures with the authority and tenacity of a seasoned pro. Who knows, she might be back to collect a Globe next year?

  • Lupita Nyong’o wore a £35 pair of Aldo shoes

    The Black Panther actor decided to pair her cobalt-blue sequin-fringed Calvin Klein dress with a pair of £35 silver Aldo stilettos. Not a stranger to mixing designer with high street, Nyong’o previously paired Nine West heels with a Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture suit for an event with the Hollywood Reporter.

  • Julia Roberts ended the night with a snog and a burger

    In one of The Pool’s favourite looks of the evening, Julia Roberts ditched a gown at last night’s awards in favour of a tulle off-the shoulder top and tailored tuxedo trousers designed by Stella McCartney. Proving to be a woman after our own hearts, Roberts ended the night with a burger and a snog, as documented on Instagram in a picture of her and her “fella”.

  • TimothÉe Chalamet brought the sequins

    It wasn’t just the women serving up the glamour. Call Me By Your Name’s Timothee Chalamet traded a traditional tuxedo for a custom-made harness bedazzled with sequins by Louis Vuitton.

  • Celebs wore the Times Up X2 bracelets

    In the aftermath of the #MeToo movement and the #TimesUp initative, which saw A-listers wear all black to last year’s Golden Globes as a sign of solidarity, celebrities this year chose to show their support by wearing Time's Up X2 bracelets. Designed by Arianne Phillips, who created last years Time's Up pins, the token can be bought online for $5, with all proceeds going to the legal defense fund established by leading Hollywood actresses to help represent those who have been the victims of workplace harassment. This year’s focus is to help double the number of women in leadership positions. It was worn by the likes of Claire Foy, Julianne Moore, Idris Elba, Regina King and Charlize Theron.
