Turns out, Golden Globes fashion is alive and well behind the screen.

Hollywood starlets normally bring out their sparkliest outfits for the annual awards show and its afterparties. Even though the awards bonanza is being held virtually amid the COVID-19 pandemic, with nominees scattered across the world, some actors, directors, and producers brought their A-game fashion-wise.

These are just a few memorable looks:

Elle Fanning, nominated for “The Great,” stunned in a sleek bun and a green-blue custom Gucci gown embroidered with crystal brooches. Her sparkling earrings are from Leighton Jewels.

“One Night in Miami” star Leslie Odom Jr. tuned into the virtual Globes pre-show from his Los Angeles home in a dusty pink and brown BVLGARI suit. The ‘fit is completed with a bright green turtleneck, layered under a crisp, white button-up.

Actress and “Promising Young Woman” producer Margot Robbie showed up in Chanel. Her black-and-white floral print dress was cinched at the waist with a sparkling Chanel logo belt. White gold, 18-karat jewels dripped from her ears and fingers. And who could ever dislike a long-leg slit?

Every year, someone has to turn heads in old Hollywood waves. This time around, it’s Amanda Seyfried from “Mank.” The best actress nominee donned an Oscar de la Renta gown with an off-the-shoulder neckline made of bold, pink and orange flowers.

Nominated for her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in “The Crown,” Gillian Anderson posted herself in Dior on Instagram. The glimpse of the gown seen online is several shades of green. Anderson’s hair is adequately poofed on top, though not as tall as it is in the show.

Enter the queen of glam. Sunday evening, Laverne Cox said sparkle. The award-winning actress and producer went all out in a red Thai Nguyen dress with a deep neckline. Fans of Twitter were thrilled Cox brought the heat.

You can always trust Jared Leto to raise the stakes. The actor, who was up to win for his performance in “The Little Things,” sported a thick mustache and khaki blazer with a neutral flower by the left lapel. (In his pre-show interview, Leto also told the audience that his bookshelf is from Ikea, in case you were wondering.)

Actress and singer Cynthia Erivo “came” to the Golden Globes in Valentino couture: a structured neon green dress with a mock neckline. It’s styled with light brown gloves. As for us, we’re green with envy.

Kaley Cuoco from “The Flight Attendant” turned around another Oscar de la Renta look. It’s chic. It’s strapless. It’s sparkly.

Best actress winner and singer Andra Day showed up to impress. She wore a white, meshy dress from Chanel Haute Courture, matching Chanel jewelry, and custom Stuart Weitzman.

Forget the red carpet. Dan Levy said bring on the yellow. The “Schitt’s Creek” superstar wore the color of sunshine from his head (almost) to his toes. He paired the Valentino suit with shiny silver boots and his signature glasses. “This suit was all I needed tonight,” Levy tweeted.

Angela Bassett wore a thick braid and a purple Dolce and Gabbana dress decorated with one feathery arm. With it, the actress sparkled in Graziela Gems.

Who said no one looks good in green? Because Anya Taylor-Joy does. The actress from “Queen’s Gambit” and “Emma” chose a monochromatic look that complimented her platinum blonde hair. It’s a serve from every angle.

“The Flight Attendant” actress Audrey Grace Marshall decided to be pretty in pink. The big bow of her REDValentino dress was complimented by a pair of red Talbots flats.

If you don’t know what to wear to an awards show, just match the carpet — at least, that’s what Sarah Hyland did. The actress donned a red Monique Lhuiller dress, Jimmy Shoo shoes, and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

After flawlessly playing a prince in “The Crown,” Josh O’Connor ended up looking like one. His suit included a clean shirt, straight leg white pants, and a loose-fitting blazer with white lapels. On his head, a perfect mop of ruffled, curly hair. His watch was BVLGARI.

Sometimes classic is the way to go. At the Golden Globes, Tracy Morgan wore a plain, black tux and mispronounced the word “soul.”

Spike Lee’s kids are cooler than all of us. Satchel and Jackson Lee were not playing around in their outfits while they served as Golden Globe ambassadors. Fun fact: they’re the first siblings of color to do so.

Jane Fonda, the Cecil B. deMille award winner, said the earrings are the outfit.

Emma Corrin is almost as fashionable as Princess Diana, who she played on screen in “The Crown.” Her polka dot Miu Miu dress with its massive, layered collar matched her slicked hair and green, dangly earrings.

That’s Prada, baby. “Ozark” actress Julia Garner fashioned herself with a black-and-white straight silhouette dress, sprinkled with little dot patterns and a decorated belt around the waist. Her neckline is deep; her lipstick is red.

Also, Bill Murray wore a Hawaiian shirt.

And Jason Sudeikis accepted an award in a hoodie.
