Since Hollywood’s award show inception, whispers of exciting, secretive after-hours parties have generated endless buzz, ignited more than a few major rumors, and served as the ideal place for even more unexpected celebrity outfits. On Jan. 10, after the 80th Annual Golden Globes ceremony concluded, the stars were off to dance and drink the night away at various locales around LA. Some celebs such as Britt Lower and Jenna Ortega wore their best 2023 Golden Globes after-party looks to the Billboard party, which was held at The Beverly Hilton — where the show also took place — while others like Milly Alcock dashed over to the Chateau Marmont.

Not surprisingly, for those who decided to stay out late, they changed into more comfortable, low-key ensembles or decided to stay in their original red carpet outfits altogether. Coolidge, who took home the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series/Anthology or Motion Picture Made for Television as Tanya McQuoid in White Lotus, swapped her Globes gown for a chic tailored coat, dress, and boots moment. Meanwhile, Lower changed into a less voluminous LBD compared to the two-tone Bach Mai number she wore on the red carpet.

To catalogue all the exciting arrivals, TZR logged all the best moments right here — scroll on for the coolest Golden Globes after-party looks of the night.

The Severance actor kept it classic and cool in a strapless black dress. Although she changed out of her original red carpet ensemble, she did keep one portion of that Bach Mai look intact here: her nappa leather opera gloves.

Like Coolidge, Alcock chose comfort over everything as she headed to Chateau Marmont. The actor switched out of her body-hugging Givenchy dress and wore a cropped leather jacket with brown trousers instead.
