One of the most eye-catching looks of the 2020 Golden Globes has to be Sophia Carson’s voluminous gown. The Descendants actress wasn’t shy when she selected this beautiful sugar pink gown. The gown featured feathers on the top and layers of tulle down to the red carpet that makes her appear taller than her 5’4″ frame.

Her overall style for the big night also appears reminiscent of old Hollywood style, paired with big lashes, a short ‘do, and teardrop diamond earrings.

Avengers actress Scarlett Johansson can kick butt and clean-up nicely, too! She wore a custom Vera Wang gown to the event with a beautiful flowing train. She might have tripped over the train while walking on stage to present the award for best actor in a musical or comedy if it hadn’t been for her Avengers: Endgame co-star!

Actor Chris Evans was a true gentleman, helping to arrange Johansson’s train out of the way as they walked onstage together so she wouldn’t trip over it after handing the award over to Taron Egerton.

No matter what she shows up in, Jennifer Lopez always stuns on the red carpet. She attended the 2020 Golden Globes with her fiance, Alex Rodriguez, and donned a Maison Valentino gown for the occasion.

The strapless white gown would have been subtle on its own, but of course, JLo had to take it up a notch with an oversized green and gold bow stealing the show around the top and front.
