If you want to spice up your portfolio, adding a few top e-commerce stocks to it should do the trick.

Fashion at the Golden Globes: Ceremony showcases hybrid of red carpet and bold at-home looks

Written by Oscar Holland, CNN

The Golden Globes offered a taste of what awards style may look like in 2021, with this year’s “hybrid” ceremony combining traditional red carpet moments with colorful at-home fashion.

While a handful of presenters were pictured arriving in person, at either New York’s Rainbow Room or the Beverly Hilton in LA, many of the night’s most talked-about looks were beamed in virtually or posted to social media prior to the show.

Among them was Rosamund Pike’s hot pink Molly Goddard gown and black platforms, which the British actress used to create her own red carpet moment on Instagram. Emerging from a hotel elevator, she performed a dramatic high kick before gliding down the lobby on her way to winning a best actress award in a motion picture musical or comedy for her performance in “I Care a Lot.”

A Closer Look at the Men’s Fashion at the 2021 Golden Globes

Despite not having its usual red carpet, the 2021 Golden Globes produced several standout fashion moments, especially among the male nominees.

Men’s fashion was a highlight of the awards ceremony, as many actors looked to more fashionable and colorful versions of the traditional suit to appear at the Golden Globes virtually.

“Schitt’s Creek” creator and actor Dan Levy followed up his Thom Browne suit from the 2020 Emmys by wearing one of Valentino’s first men’s couture looks that debuted during the design house’s spring 2021 couture collection. Levy attended the awards ceremony virtually, dressed in a lemon yellow Valentino suit paired with a matching sequined top.

“Not a bad way to spend a Sunday night in,” Levy wrote on Instagram. “Thank you @pppiccioli and the incredible team at @maisonvalentino for letting me be the first to play in your new men’s haute couture.”

Golden Globes Fashion and Can’t Miss Moments: Bold Color, Best Accessories and Return of Glamour

THR spots the biggest trends on Golden Globes night courtesy of custom gowns, couch casual and mini dresses.

It might not have always been pretty (audio issues, anyone?) but when the Hollywood Foreign Press Association presented the 78th annual Golden Globe Awards, the stars responded by enlisting their glam squads and breaking out custom gowns en masse to prove that glamour is, indeed, back.

Ahead of Sunday night’s telecast, it was unclear how the industry would respond against the backdrop of a still looming COVID-19 pandemic and a fresh controversy due to the HFPA’s lack of Black members. The Golden Globes red carpet, after all, has long been a place for political and socially conscious statements, most recently in 2018 when the majority of female participants wore black in solidarity with Time’s Up and the #MeToo movement. While calls for change were worked into hosts Tina Fey
