Ansel Elgort Went Full ‘Euphoria’ for the Golden Globes

There was no shortage of major moments on the Golden Globes red carpet last night. Billy Porter brought his feathers. Gwyneth Paltrow opted for a naked dress. Bill Hader and Rachel Bilson even confirmed their relationship. But it was Ansel Elgort’s look that really caught our eye. 

The 25-year-old The Goldfinch star hit the red carpet alongside his longtime girlfriend Violetta Komyshan wearing a dapper midnight blue velvet tuxedo and bowtie, which he accessorized with—wait for it—icy blue eyeshadow and matching nails.

Typically, Elgort brings his A-game to the awards season, but it’s not every day that he rocks Euphoria-inspired glam. 

As you’ll notice above, he sported glittery glacial blue shadow on the inner corners of his eyes and let the rest of his face go bare. The ethereal quality of his eye makeup created a great juxtaposition with his more traditional tux. If you’ve seen Euphoria, then you know his makeup must be an homage to the show. Or, perhaps he was just feeling a little more glamazon than usual. Who knows? 

But Elgort’s beauty journey didn’t end there.

He kept his Blue Lagoon-esque theme going with powder blue nail polish. His mani could be seen when he shook hands with The Crown star Olivia Coleman, who went home with the statuette for Best Actress in a Drama TV Series for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II.

The West Side Story star completed his look with a butterfly brooch, a ring and a long-ish, choppy haircut.

Move over ladies, Ansel Elgort is raising the red carpet beauty bar.
