Golden Globes: Nominees – Style – Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy

Jean Smart, Selena Gomez, Kaley Cuoco, Jenna Ortega, Quinta Brunson

A distinctive style is a watchword for these savvy women. Let’s see how their past informs the future.


Selena Gomez has been in the spotlight since first appearing on Barney & Friends (2002 – 2004). The former Disney star soon fleshed out her singer/actress hyphenates with producer – 13 Reasons Why (2017 – 2020).

Gomez, who in 2020 made Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World, and who at one time had the most followers on Instagram, is nominated for Only Murders in the Building. The Texan has honed her style through years in the spotlight. She has impeccable taste combining trends with old-world know-how. For big carpet, award shows, she often pulls her hair back into a slick bun. Her make-up is clean and subtle. Her style choices experiment with silhouettes and she knows how to wear statement jewelry pieces.


What to expect: clean lines, classic tailoring with interesting detail.

Jenna Ortega: At 5’1″ this powerhouse of talent possesses the ability to stretch her silhouette on the red carpet. The Wednesday star can be seen in monochromatic looks and towering heels. Make-up involves a smokey eye and a light lip. Hair can be up or down.


Expect: up-do, light make-up with eye emphases, and a daring reveal in the gown.

Above: Kaley Cuoco has taken the classic blonde girl next door and leveraged it into a powerhouse of star and producer. She has also taken charge of her red-carpet moments, impacting specific looks. She loves a traditional ‘ballgown’: The bodice, is fitted, and the skirt full. Her hair is often pulled away from her face in a two-tiered fall.


Expect: A spectacular ballgown – the kind little girls’ dream of.


Below: Quinta Brunson is the wild card in the pack. We love that she is willing to experiment with embracing both sweeping designer glam gowns, while also paying homage to ethnic choices.


Expect: elegance with something surprising.

Jean Smart: Blessed with an hourglass, statuesque figure, this Hacks star owns her moments in the spotlight. There is nothing frou-frou about her. Long, minimal lines, with emphases on the bodice and nipped waist.


Expect: Glamour, baby!
