Golden Globes 2021: the best fashion moments from the virtual red carpet

Posted by for Fashion

From Tiffany Haddish’s custom chainmail gown to Emma Corrin’s Princess Diana tribute, here’s our runthrough of the 2021 Golden Globes’ (virtual) red carpet

The 2021 awards season has finally kicked off after what feels like a very long year. But, due to Covid-19 restrictions, things were a little different at the Golden Globes, with many celebrities tuning in via video link to the ceremony hosted by Amy Poehler (in Los Angeles!) and Tina Fey (in New York!). 

Think that a socially distanced Golden Globes means less room for big, bold fashion moments on the red carpet? Think again. In fact, with the likes of Rosamund Pike, Andra Day, Emma Corrin, Regina King, Cynthia Erivo, and so many others dressing up for the event at home and sharing their knockout outfits via Instagram, there’s actually more sartorial inspiration to be found than ever.

Here’s our pick of just some of the best (virtual) red carpet outfits, then, from the 2021 Golden Globes.
