Many wondered if Hollywood’s power players would attend the controversy-hit Golden Globes, but the stars turned out in force Tuesday for the first big showbiz awards program of the year — and brought their fashion A-game in spades. The event was held at the Beverly Hilton, with its red carpet — which was actually a deep grey — rolled out under a tent after heavy rains in Los Angeles in recent days. From jewel tones to basic black and old-school glamour, read on to see all the best dressed celebrities on the 2023 Golden Globes red carpet.

Emmy and Tony winner Billy Porter knows how to work a carpet — his black velvet Christian Siriano tuxedo dress broke the internet at the Oscars in 2019. His look on Tuesday — a vibrant magenta tuxedo dress, also from Siriano, and sparkly platform shoes — lived up to the high bar he has set.

The hue was fit for a king of fashion, and indeed, jewel tones historically associated with royalty were popular at the gala.

Viola Davis, who is nominated for best film drama actress for her star turn in The Woman King, definitely understood the assignment, looking regal in a royal blue one-shoulder Jason Wu gown with ruching.
