Golden Globes 2020: Phoebe Waller-Bridge & Other Stars Who Slayed the Pantsuit Trend

Listen, we love a good fairytale ball gown moment as much as the next person. But a distinctive pantsuit trend popped up at Sunday’s Golden Globes, and we are 100 percent here for it. There’s a lot to be said for this style: the crisp lines, the meticulous tailoring, the contrast between these two-piece ensembles and the sea of billowy fabric gliding by them.

Not surprisingly, everyone’s favorite fearless fashion icon Billy Porter led the way with this stunning look by opting for a custom all-white Alex Vinash suit with a feathered train pulled straight out of our sartorial dreams. Porter was in good company, though, with A-listers like Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge also choosing to drop jaws in impeccably styled pantsuits. Power couple Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi? Yep, they both killed this trend, too, choosing to wear distinctive but complementary suits.

So, yeah, you can say we’re having a moment with the Golden Globes sleekest trend: the timeless two-piece. Here’s hoping this look makes its way to even more red carpets this award show season because, hey, this isn’t just a fling for us — it’s the continuation of a long-time love affair with this look.

Here are some of our favorite pantsuits from the 2020 Golden Globes red carpet.
