Statement Shoulders & Sleeves Ruled The Red Carpet
The fashion did not disappoint at this evening’s 77th Annual Golden Globes, with stars rolling up in breathtaking gowns, pantsuits, and — yes — there was even a chest harness. But while there was plenty of sartorial gold to go around, there was one major trend that swept across the carpet: the statement sleeve. This year, the bigger the shoulder, the better.
Now, let’s keep in mind, puffy sleeves are certainly not a new trend. But, in case you had any doubt whether or not they’ll be sticking around in 2020, just take a gander at tonight’s attendees.
And considering how badly women were snubbed by this year’s nominations (not one woman of color was nominated for a TV Golden Globe and women were overlooked entirely for the Best Director category, for starters), perhaps this aesthetic choice is meant to send a message to those behind the scenes: Women have ditched the dainty, bare-shoulder gowns of the past for larger-than-life designs, proving that they’re taking up more space in Hollywood, and will continue to do so.
