The Best Celebrity Looks At The 2024 Governors Awards Featured Lots Of Shimmer & Shine
The style moments just kept coming.
Less than two days after the celebrity set donned their black tie best and headed to the 2024 Golden Globe Awards, Hollywood’s biggest A-listers slipped on another assemblage of designer attire for the 14th Annual Governors Awards. While the red carpet rotation at Sunday evening’s Golden Globes featured bejeweled statement necklaces and bow-embellished ensembles galore, the star-studded lineup at Tuesday evening’s soirée went an even more glitzy route (if you can imagine that). The attendees upped the ante tenfold in terms of shimmer, and if their gowns weren’t adorned with a fair share of eye-catching rhinestones, they made up for the lack of sparkle with striking silhouettes. And since the affair was the official precursor to the Oscars — it is also hosted by the Academy of Motion Arts and Picture Sciences — it served as a teaser for the sartorial selections we might see at the Academy Awards on March 10.
While the results of the Academy Awards are always somewhat of a surprise, the Governors Awards is an invite-only dinner that celebrates the winners of four testimonial awards. This year’s honorees — including Angela Bassett, Mel Brooks, film editor Carol Littleton, and Michelle Satter, the founding director of the Sundance Institute — were joined by some of this award season’s front-runners at Ovation Hollywood. Serving up one of the shiniest looks of the evening was Florence Pugh, who tapped into the divisive return of the peplum in a pale pink maxi from Rodarte’s Spring/Summer 2024 collection. Shortly after Pugh’s arrival, Greta Lee stunned in a fiery red dress from Bottega Veneta, which traded an excess of sequins for equally alluring details, like her elevated shoulder pads. In a sea of lavish maxi and midis, America Ferrera stood out in a custom three-piece suit set from Moschino, complete with a timeless bow tie atop her white button-down.
While the countdown to the Oscars continues, the best celebrity looks from the 2024 Governors Awards will certainly tide us over until that fateful Sunday in March. Keep scrolling to see our favorites and consider grabbing a little snack, because there are quite a few top-notch outfits to debrief.
