Golden Globes red carpet got pandemic twist: How stars created fashion moments at virtual gala


LOS ANGELES: With the stars mainly at home or in hotel rooms for Sunday's Golden Globes due to pandemic restrictions, what is usually one of Hollywood's biggest red carpet nights was certainly deprived of some of its glamour.

Ilaria Urbinati, stylist to Globe winner Sacha Baron Cohen, said his ensemble would be "less 'out there'" than usual because "he is sitting in his living room" in Australia.

Baron Cohen, who wore a bright blue suit to last year's Globes, was more subdued on Sunday when he accepted two awards for "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm" in a three-piece blue-gray ensemble, with no tie.
