Bright colours 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.

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.

Glenn Close, who is also vying for best drama actress for her role in The Wife, was among the few who opted for darker hues and wore a black gown adorned by a diamond ribbon at the neck line.

The Assassination of Gianni Versace star Penelope Cruz also chose dark colours, stunning in a black glittery dress by Ralph & Russo that featured a big bow on the back.

Nicole Kidman, who played a troubled detective in Destroyer that has earned her a nomination for best drama actress, appeared in a long burgundy sequin dress.
