Cynthia Erivo brought a big dose of high-fashion glamour to the 2021 Golden Globes.
The actress, 34, who presented during Sunday's telecast, debuted her bright and bold neon green tea-length Valentino Haute Couture dress and sky-high metallic silver platforms on Instagram. She topped off the ensemble with jewels by Wempe and Maria Tash.
Erivo's go-to stylist, Jason Bolden described the look as a "much-needed fantasy" — and he revealed that the actress actually didn't know anything about it before the show. "Cynthia knew nothing about this dress, but she trusts me and allows me to be creative," Bolden said during E!'s pre-show broadcast.
"The shoes are like skyscrapers! The color and the shape is so bold and why not to add some much-needed fantasy," he added. "The neon green tea-length dress reminds me of scuba fabric. Obsessed!"
The two-time nominee joined a group of other A-list presenters, which included Anthony Anderson, Awkwafina, Kevin Bacon, Kyra Sedgwick, Angela Bassett, Renee Zellweger and Catherine Zeta-Jones to name a few.
Erivo was nominated last year for best actress in a motion picture drama for her role in Harriet as well as for best original song in a motion picture for "Stand Up."
The star had many memorable fashion moments during last year's award season.
At the 2020 Oscars, she wore a head-turning white custom Atelier Versace one-shoulder bustier gown, featuring a crystal mesh bodice and front-slit detail revealing her white Stuart Weitzman platform heels. She accessorized with Piaget diamond rings and earrings, as well as Maria Tash earrings and mismatched blue and white nails.
She brought a splash of color to the SAG Awards red carpet in a strapless custom Schiaparelli Couture ballgown with red bustier top and pink voluminous tiered skirt. She paired the bold look with Roberto Coin jewelry.
And kicked everything off at the 2020 Golden Globes in a $3 million Bulgari sapphire pendant, teamed with a black-and-white custom hand-beaded, off-the-shoulder gown by Thom Browne.
The 78th Annual Golden Globes Awards are airing live on NBC from 5-8 p.m. PT/8-11 p.m. ET.
