Kylie Jenner Snuck Into the Golden Globes In a Completely Sheer Dress

One of the best things about the awards season is that there's always sure to be something that takes you by surprise—e.g., one project could secure every single award or drama that ensues backstage (or sometimes onstage). But for Who What Wear editors, what always keeps us on our toes comes back to the moment when celebrities step onto the red carpet. We never know what people will wear, what trends will emerge, or what red carpet-looks will go viral. Sadly, though, in recent years, we've been in a bit of a dry spell when it comes to awards show style that, well, surprises

Don't get us wrong, we will always love a pretty red carpet look, but there's something to be said about those willing to take risks, especially when you're dressing up for an event as formal as the Golden Globes. It seems that so many celebrities are worried about whether they'll land on the "best dressed" list that they forget to enjoy the getting dressed-up part. However, that wasn't the case with one star this year: Kylie Jenner. While one might argue she wasn't necessarily "fully dressed" (wait until you see her ultra-sheer lace gown), nonetheless, her presence was a welcome shift from the sea of cliché gowns. 

Many did not know Jenner would be in the audience at the Golden Globes since she did not walk the red carpet. However, she was there during the ceremony to support her beau, Timothée Chalamet, which quickly captured the attention of the internet. Although most of the buzz did surround the on-screen kiss they shared, we were more enthralled with their looks for the evening. Frankly, you won't blame us once you see them for yourselves! Keep scrolling to see what Chalamet and Jenner wore to the Golden Globes...

Before we get to Miss. Jenner's look for the evening, we must at least acknowledge the man of the evening: Chalamet. Garnering his third Golden Globe nomination, the actor was up for the category "Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture" for the film Wonka. Chalamet chose to celebrate the occasion by wearing head-to-toe Celine Homme by Hedi Slimane. He might not have won the globe this evening, but this look was a winner in our books. Plus, he got to snuggle up with Jenner for the evening, which who wouldn't want to after seeing her look?

Jenner might have skipped the Golden Globes red carpet, but make no mistake, she still served a look. Donning a vintage piece by Hanae Mori, the sheer lace floor-length gown featured long sleeves and a ruffled low-back. Jenner kept the rest of the look minimal with neutral-hued nails, a nude lip, and very little jewellery, allowing the dress to be the focal point of the evening—boy was it just that.

Despite Jenner's attendance being a surprise to the world, it further cemented the couple's status. They successfully honoured their own style through each of their Golden Globes looks while complimenting each other sublimely. As with most celebrity couples, there comes a point where we think we've seen it all, but these two continue to surprise and delight us.
