Scene Stealer: the Best Beauty Looks From the 2024 Golden Globes
From Cillian Murphy’s chiselled cheekbones to Florence Pugh’s nouveau mohawk, here are the beats worth every second of screen time
And just like that, the 81st Golden Globes have officially concluded!
The 2024 iteration of the typically debaucherous event (a reputation the ceremony has received courtesy of its open bar) gathered the pre-eminent talents across film and television for a celebration of the year’s theatrical releases.
Taking to the floral step and repeat in Los Angeles’ Beverly Hilton Hotel, illustrious A-listers both in Hollywood and abroad marked the first event on the award season calendar with glitz and glamour in spades. We’re of course referring to the myriad of custom and couture-level ensembles that paraded down the red carpet. But more so than ever before did this attitude for scene-stealing allure extend into the stars’ beauty looks.
Florence Pugh, who wasn’t nominated for anything but presented an award, delivered a high-octane dose of peroxide courage by styling her platinum pixie cut into a nouveau punk mohawk. Dua Lipa maintained her new “Houdini” era of dressing by doubling down on her new cranberry hue hair colour.
Elsewhere, Margot Robbie proved why she was the acme of “Barbie” with an enviable lick of “spun with gold” blonde. Robbie’s hair colourist and OLAPLEX global ambassador, Jacob Schwartz, revealed that the trick to her “Superstar Barbie” style was to achieve a “lit from within” finish.
“There are still highlights and there’s still dimension, but it looks more effortless,” Schwartz said. Yes, even Barbies aren’t immune to the merits of a lived-in or “recession blonde,” with Robbie giving the economically efficient hair colour her red carpet seal of approval.
Across the hallowed carpet, breakout stars Greta Lee (Past Lives) and Ayo Edebiri (The Bear) both interpreted old Hollywood’s signature finger waves. But it was the likes of Billie Eilish and Ali Wong who proved to take the boldest (and therefore the most commendable) beauty risk of all on the red carpet: wearing optical glasses. A huge win for the poor-sighted community.
For readers looking for subtle makeup looks to suit their slow return into the office, or those who want to dial up their holiday-approved “no makeup, makeup” with a touch of red carpet magic, the 2024 Golden Globes saw it all. Ahead, the best beauty looks of the 2024 Golden Globes.
