Patty Duke’s knitted dress in baby blue made a fashion statement at the awards show. In a style that would jump-start that ‘70s look, Duke’s casual dress with lavender feathered sleeves was seen as a surprise.
The 27th Golden Globe Awards was traditionally a formal affair and she veered sharply from the expected attire. But she won the day twice, both with her style and at the awards ceremony. Ordinary people loved her outfit and she took home the best actress trophy.
Natalie Wood - 1967
At the 24th Annual Golden Globe Awards, Natalie Wood and costar Steve McQueen share the stage at the pinnacle of their days of Hollywood glamor. Wood is wearing a classy floor-length red gown.
It is intricately embellished with white lace and beading. In “Love with the Proper Stranger,” Wood won the Best Actress Golden Globe. McQueen dressed quite dapper in a double-breasted tuxedo jacket and won the Best Actor award for the same film.
Barbra Streisand - 1969
Here is Barbra Streisand standing at the podium with Gregory Peck at the awards ceremony held at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. She is decked out in a beautifully printed gown with sequins.
Her embellished ensemble with fur trim, including a matching headpiece, made her a fashion favorite at the Globes. Even though now donning fur would be frowned upon. The iconic is known for her flamboyant dress sense, and she does not disappoint here. Streisand is pictured collecting her first Golden Globe for her role in “Funny Girl.”
Anjelica Huston - 1974
Too cool for school, Anjelica Huston was strutting her stuff at the 1974 Golden Globe Awards in one of the best outfits of the gala’s history.
She looks absolutely chic in a matching sleek silk top and skirt. It doesn’t hurt that she has Jack Nicholson on her arm. Tying her ensemble together, Huston is wearing a fur boa tossed over her shoulder. The actress gives even more of a spontaneous nod to the era by sticking a flower in her hair.
Olivia Newton-John - 1978
The late actress and pop singer Olivia Newton-John attended the 35th Golden Globe Awards in 1978 held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.
Newton-John sported a simple but elegant spaghetti-strap dress. Her gown was trimmed in gold thread and beaded with sparkling gold crystals. To finish, she wore a dainty diamond bracelet and held a gold clutch. “Grease,” the film version, brought the Australian actress to the Golden Globes that year. The movie is the highest-grossing musical ever made.
