Lady Gaga goes old-school on colour-filled Golden Globes red carpet

Bright colors were back on the Golden Globes red carpet on Sunday, with pop superstar Lady Gaga, dressed in lavender, leading a trend for old school glamour.

Lady Gaga, the front-runner for a best drama actress award for "A Star is Born," graced the red carpet in a Valentino lavender gown with puffed sleeves and a long train, with her blue-dyed hair pulled into a tight bun, and wearing a stunning Tiffany's diamond necklace.

"I discovered something working on this film, and it's something called alchemy, that you are essentially creating a character but you are really becoming the character," Gaga said about her first role as a lead movie actress in "A Star is Born."

Last year's ceremony saw an all-black look on the red carpet as celebrities showed support for the #MeToo movement that roiled Hollywood.

This year saw blues, golds, reds and lots of metallic, but several stars wore bracelets and pins in support of the Time's Up movement against sexual harassment and inequality in the workplace.

"Killing Eve" star and co-host of the ceremony Sandra Oh donned a long white gown, while People magazine's "sexiest man alive" Idris Elba chose a dark green and black tuxedo.
