Melissa McCarthy has gone full purple this evening and we’re seeing yet more sequins, this time in scattered star-shapes. She’s nominated for Best Actress: Drama for her role in Can You Ever Forgive Me? and, according to her Instagram, was busy sheet-masking earlier this evening in preparation for the awards.

Golden Globes 2019: the red carpet, the winners, the speeches – live! | Film
Brit Emily Blunt, aka Mary Poppins, has been dressed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen on the red-carpet tonight – she who also designed the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding dress (although yes this is more racy than royal). Supercalifragilisticexpial… etc etc.
A lesson in how to pull off a plunging neckline from Taraji P Henson, who’s wearing a custom Vera Wang dress in green velvet. Oh and diamonds, lots of ’em.
Just. Look. At. That. Train. Brava Lady Gaga, who can always be trusted to bring her A-game to the red carpet. Beautifully fitted, the lavender puff sleeves and full skirt is serious Cinderella territory and she is rocking it. It’s said to be by Valentino, whom Gaga has worn several times while promoting A Star Is Born, the film that may see her win the Best Actress – Drama award tonight.
There’ll be a ton of A-listers in attendance tonight and not just those waiting impatiently to find out if they’ve won. As usual, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has assembled a starry line-up of presenters who will hopefully create a few memorable skits, the likes of which have helped to make the Globes a more watchable ceremony in years past.
This year’s crop includes Harrison Ford, Chadwick Boseman, Saoirse Ronan, Idris Elba, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jessica Chastain, Sterling K Brown, Halle Berry, Nicole Kidman, Emily Blunt, Taraji P Henson, Kristen Bell, Emma Stone, Mike Myers and Michael B Jordan.
Hold the front page: Michelle Yeoh is wearing THAT green ring from Crazy Rich Asians. We officially couldn’t love her more. Fun fashion fact: the ring actually belonged to Yeoh personally long before she was cast in the smash hit of 2018 that’s hoping to win in two categories tonight. Favourite red-carpet detail so far.
Rosamund Pike is not messing about in this black dress paired with a sequin jacket. She’s nominated for best actress in a drama for her role in A Private War but Twitter is murmuring about her “warrior” vibes and, of course, #bigdickenergy.
Sunshine yellow satin isn’t the easiest to pull off, but this is a good look for Claire Foy. We’re also a fan of thematic references – she’s nominated for best supporting actress for the space-travel drama First Man and those sequin appliquéd starbursts look suitably out of this world. The old Hollywood styling suits her vibe too.
Pleased to see you Mr Bond, er, sorry, we mean Mr Bodyguard. Richard Madden has arrived looking slick in a tux. The actor (whose BBC hit is nominated in the best TV series – drama category) has clearly picked up some styling tips from his recent GQ cover shoot. Looking anything but shaken …
Jameela Jamil obviously got the Pantone memo – she’s wearing a strapless dress in the colour of the year, “living coral”. Earlier, The Good Place actor tweeted a video of herself wearing jeans underneath the dress because, as she put it, it’s “forking cold”.
