There were oodles of gorgeous looks that graced the 2020 Golden Globes red carpet this evening, but one trend seemed to stand out more than others. Sure, suiting and pink gowns also had their moments, but it was the puffy, voluminous statement sleeve that really caught our attention at this star-studded awards show.

Puffy sleeves have been a major trend over the last few seasons, whether they appeared on sweet and colorful cropped versions for spring and summer or spotted on cozy sweaters for the cooler fall and winter months. But the celebrities at this year's Golden Globes awards really took the look to a new level with their designer ensembles. Who knew puffy sleeves could be so elevated and chic? These actors (and their stylists) did.

From Gwyneth Paltrow's sheer Fendi poufs to Beyoncé's major metallic moment, here were the major puffy sleeve moments at the 2020 Golden Globes.

While most of the statement sleeves of the evening have been more of the puffier, cap-sleeve style, Isla Fisher's drapey, puffy bell sleeves are still just as major.


Beyoncé didn't walk the red carpet, so she surprised fans when she — and her incredible metallic gold sleeves — graced the screen during the show.
