Palm Springs International Film Festival served as a precursor – or a warm-up act – for the Golden Globes 2020, and the awards season that follows. Straight off the bat on 2 January was Jennifer Lopez, who proved that superstars are immune to the pull of Quality Streets by wearing a pink floral Richard Quinn gown with strapless bustier and sweeping train.
The silhouette and pastel palette evoked Lady Gaga’s debut gown for awards season 2019: the tumbling periwinkle Valentino Haute Couture confection that marked her out as an Academy-approved actor who also meant business on the red carpet. Just like Gaga, J-Lo’s first look proved she’s here to make an impact this year (check out the pre-show photo shoot on stylist Rob Zangardi’s Instagram). Don’t invite popstars to the party unless you want to be overshadowed, right?
