It has been years since Elizabeth Debicki has had short hair but it still shocks me when I see her the way she’s looked for a while now – with long hair – because for whatever reason, the short hairstyle that she was wearing during the run of The Night Manager has imprinted on my brain and I can’t seem to shake it. So whenever I see her, it’s always a double take: THAT’s Elizabeth Debicki? Yes, in fact, it is. And I guess the short hair association thing doesn’t help with the Princess Diana performance.
Elizabeth won the Globe for Best Supporting Female Actor for her work in The Crown and this a metallic dress that is better on video than it is in still photos. Not the most imaginative outfit but the reason I’m singling it out is because, for me, with the long straight hair and her height and her bone structure… it’s giving so much Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, I can’t get over it. Like it’s not that I’m saying that there should be a film about Carolyn and JFK Jr but if there was, who else could they possibly cast? But that’s too much real life tragedy for one person to play.
Elizabeth’s award was presented to her by Julia Garner, also in metallic.
This is Gucci, new Gucci. It’s Gucci under the stewardship of the house’s new creative director, Sabato De Sarno after Alessandro Michele presided over the brand for so long. This is distinctly UN-Michele and it works for Julia who’s about a year into her ambassadorship, and I like it so much more than the pink dress she wore at this same event last year:
Metallic was also the choice for Naomi Watts in Fendi. It’s the first award show red carpet for Naomi and Billy Crudup since they got married. And it’s the start of what will probably be a lot of carpets this month for Naomi as she promotes FEUD: Capote vs the Swans. This is a very Babe Paley dress.
You know who was trending all night, at least on my feeds? Elizabeth Olsen. She’s wearing Vivienne Westwood, from the bridal collection, and it’s fine on her, though I’m not sure the look is so good that it should be viral? Sarah tells me that her fans are super active so I guess that’s what explains it but as Duana points out, Riley Keough’s Chanel was kinda giving the same idea and I prefer it.
I also think I might prefer Riley’s new very dark hair to her usual red? That might be because, well, this is almost Elvis Presley black, non?
In the category of light coloured dresses that really brought the drama though, it has to be Hunter Schafer in Prada…but it only works with the wind! How did they know it would be that windy to create that effect? Without the wind, as we saw when she presented, it wasn’t much of a moment, rather flat actually. But on the carpet? When it was swirling? Some of the best images of the night.
