Winona Ryder: Globes nostalgia

Winona Ryder’s dress for the Golden Globes was custom Viktor & Rolf. I’m surprised. I’m surprised she didn’t wear Marc Jacobs. I’m not surprised it’s black. I am also not surprised that it’s a nothing black dress, totally a whatever. Winona Ryder isn’t showing up at the Golden Globes anymore needing to be on the Best Dressed List. In fact, I think maybe she tried to actively avoid it. Which is why I don’t think we can hold this sagging, wrinkled, taffeta mess against her. F-ck taffeta though, OK? I am actually dying inside that my beloved Winona is wearing taffeta. 

But there is more to talk about where Winona is concerned. It was all nostalgia for me. Stranger Things is nostalgic. Winona talking about Christian Slater, in that voice that still has that high school lilt, with Giuliana Rancic was nostalgic.

“I have not seen him in a long time, but I adore him. I’m so happy for him. I could not be more happy for him. I love him so much... He's the best."

This is them, in 1989, at the Oscars together. Veronica and JD.

I can’t find any photos of them from last night. How is this possible?

More nostalgia? Winona Ryder and Matt Damon. Both at the Globes last night. And they were at the Globes, in love with each other, in 2000.

They broke up a month later. I’m more sad about the fact that she and Gwyneth Paltrow split and never got back together.

Winona was at the Globes with her boyfriend Scott Mackinlay Hahn who is giving me serious Eric Northman vibes. As usual, she’s awkward and uncomfortable on the red carpet. But look at these shots of her with Joe Keery and Charlie Heaton (Steve and Jonathan from Stranger Things) at the after-party. That smile. There she is, do you see her?

PS. I was really attracted to Jonathan on the show. Just me?
