Issa Rae in gold Balmain at the Golden Globes: one of the best looks?

Presenter Issa Rae was such a standout last night in this incredible gold sequin Balmain gown. I love the art deco styling of this, there is such artistry to that design. She also probably appreciates the fact that it’s full length as I heard a few celebrities on ET’s red carpet livestream say it was cold out.

Issa had a sweet moment with a couple of girls who know her as President Barbie! I know a lot of people say it shouldn’t happen but I want a Barbie sequel.

Issa’s costar America Ferrera was in Dolce & Gabbana, which a lot of women were wearing last night. This dress would be so pretty without the weird dangling flower things. It doesn’t need those at all!

Nominee Quinta Brunson was also in Balmain, in a champagne gown with cutout stripes along the sides and back. Like Issa’s gown, this has such thoughtful details and I love it.

Nominee Elle Fanning was in a cream colored vintage Balmain gown with a lopsided bow at the neckline. There were so many bows last night and I appreciated how festive they looked. On another actress this might be a bit twee but Elle just looks like a pretty princess. She’s always adorable, isn’t she?

    I love that President Barbie clip. Adorable

    • BeanieBean says:

      Those little girls were so cute!! I’m so happy for them that they got to meet President Barbie!

    I love the flowers on Americas dress! It would have been so boring without them IMO. Issa looked great, and the color/tone of the dress really worked great on her, would have liked a different hair maybe?

    Sheryl allways looks amazing!

    • orangeowl says:

      I’m with you in feeling the like flowers are what makes America’s gown extra special. I am a sucker for flower embellishments, though. I hear you on Issa’s hair, I think the gown would have looked even more dramatic if she did one of her more natural hair looks.

      Sheryl is so beautiful and looks stunning in general, but I’m not sure about the black and yellow combo.

      • Nikomikaelx says:

        Yeah big natural hairdo would have really popped!

        I also think the gown would have looked better if it was completely yellow!

  3. Ginny says:

    I also actually loved America’s look! It reminded me of Emily Blunt’s pink dress at the 2016 Oscars, another look I’ve always loved.

    Issa GASP

  5. Becks1 says:

    Issa’s dress was definitely one of the better ones last night. It was just gorgeous and just glowed/sparkled on camera.

  6. Tarte au Citron says:

    LOVED the colour of Issa’s dress. You don’t often see a dress with that kind of bronze / copper tone (or maybe it is my phone display settings :)) Anyway, she looked amazing:)

  7. orangeowl says:

    I am so here for the adorable bob hairdos! In fact seeing Quinta’s hair from the back made me want to see it chopped off, I’m sure it would look lovely.

    Issa’s dress is next level amazing. I think Elle’s might be one of the very few looks I didn’t love, it’s just kind of pale and blah to me.

    • Marif says:

      I can’t believe I don’t like Elle dress. I don’t know if it needs to be tighter or straighten.

      I like the whole cast of Abbott elementary outfits. There are some former fashion models in the cast. Have to wonder are they using their old connections to help the cast. Even the guys look nice.

    • BeanieBean says:

      I do not like that bow on Elle’s dress at all. Too much like one of Katie Keen’s ensembles.

  8. HerrGreter says:

    Issa Rae’s gown is striking, so is Issa Rae but I don’t think this is the right color for her. Also you see is the dress, not her. It sits on top of her and is not merging with her features. Still – she is glowing.

  9. Shawna says:

    Quinta looks so cute here.

  10. lucy2 says:

    Issa looks spectacular and that gown is gorgeous.
    I like all of these.

  11. Chantal1 says:

    Issa Rae’s gown was very pretty and Sheryl Lee Ralph always knocks it out of the park with her spectacular red carpet gowns. But Quinta’s gorgeous gown is by far my favorite! And I’m not usually a fan of cut-out gowns bc they usually only look good on one body type but Quinta killed it here, like she usually does. America’s and Elle’s gowns were nice, although I don’t really like chest bows on most gowns.

  12. Mel says:

    I love Issa Ray’s look and she has the best bone structure and smile in Hollywood. Gorgeous. Oh Quinta, her stylist always fails her. That shade of gold does nothing for her, she needs a deeper shade of gold. The one she’s wearing is ashy.

    • LeaTheFrench says:

      Yes the colour struck me even more than the pattern: this is pure perfection on Issa’s skin tone. She looks radiant and striking without overdoing it. Flawless execution.

  13. Flamingo says:

    Issa Rae is so funny, smart, and beautiful. She would have made an amazing host.

    Issa Rae is consistently one of the best dressed women in Hollywood, and this night she did not disappoint. She’s truly a style icon in her own right. So talented and seems like an awesome person too.

  16. Minime says:

    I just love Issa Rae! She’s so talented in so many fronts. I hope we keep seeing her on the big screen and I’m hoping for some new series since I loved insecure
