golden globes 2021 anya taylor-joy green dior couture

the color of the night at last night’s golden globes was green. anya taylor-joy brought the old school glamour in dior couture and tiffany jewels while cynthia erivo and dan levy went with a more modern approach to red-carpet dressing, both from the spring valentino couture collection (and their first entry into menswear). i am obsessed with levy’s chartreruse suit and sequin top..something i could see myself wearing in real life. and erivo’s scuba tea length dress with a higher neckline and seaming details (oh and pockets!) looks just as chic on a red carpet as it would with some cool sneakers.

even with no red carpet and many celebs opting to style themselves or dress down (see winners from last night jason sudeikis in a tie-dye hoodie and jodie foster in silk pj’s), there was talk about style choices and why there weren’t more black designers featured. interestingly, two of the biggest fashion hits of the night—taylor-joy and erivo—were done by black stylists law roach and jason bolden respectively. author booth moore originally used a photo of erivo in her article to highlight her point in the article, which is unfair because it makes it seem like she didn’t pick a black designer. and why didn’t she ask that question to high profile stylists like elizabeth stewart, karla welch, or kate young who could have dressed their clients in designers of color. law and bolden did an IG live discussing the article and their take as black stylists in a predominately white industry. here’s the main takeaway: it’s hard, and there are still gatekeepers at the top. we’ll see if this discussion inspires any changes come the rest of awards season…
