If you tuned in for glitz and glamour at the 80th Annual Golden Globe Awards red carpet, then you might have noticed a theme among its star-studded attendees—florals. From oversized floral appliqués to rose-patterned gowns and botanical boutonnière, these flower-powered celebrities certainly made a statement.

Jenny Slate was one of the first to turn heads when she stepped onto the carpet in an emerald Rodarte silk slip dress featuring a bold flower appliqué in the same shade. Modelling a high neckline with skinny halter neck straps, Slate’s floral embellishment took centre stage on the otherwise minimalist dress.

Slate complimented her look with matching chandelier earrings, jewelled rings and a pair of classic pointed-toe pumps in a metallic shade.

Rhea Seehorn and Stephanie Hsu were also perfectly in bloom, with the Better Call Saul star opting for a black sheer gown adorned with sequinned flowers in shades of red and pink, while Stephanie Hsu chose a floor length Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown with stunning floral detailing.

Sigourney Weaver also turned heads in a black Saint Laurent dress with a centrepiece floral and Cartier jewellery.

However, it was perhaps Sepideh Moafi who made the boldest and most important statement of them all. The Iranian-American actress wore a black sequinned dress with an oversized red flower appliqué to symbolise the crisis in Iran.

According to Moafi, the red petals, which carry the names of four people who were executed in connection with the Mahasa Amini protests, represent a “blooming new Iran”.

House Of The Dragons star, Emma D’arcy also didn’t shy away from this year’s favoured floral motif, proving that florals aren’t just reserved for gowns.

D’arcy, who donned an oversized tuxedo, smudged eyeliner, purple gloves and a pinky ring, chose to complete their outfit with a black floral lapel pin.

And D’arcy wasn’t the only nominee sporting the floral lapel statement, with Babylon’s Diego Calva and Abbott Elementary’s Chris Perfetti wearing intricate floral lapel pieces of their own. 

But out of all of the male stars, it was Cecil B. DeMille Award recipient, Eddie Redmayne and his giant satin floral rosette, who captured everyone’s attention. Worn with a chocolate brown Valentino suit, Redmayne’s floral fit did not hold back.
