Cynthia Erivo Electrifies in Extreme Metallic Platform Heels & Neon Umbrella Dress at Golden Globes

Cynthia Erivo looked like a futuristic ballerina at the 2021 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday.

For the ceremony, Erivo, who was styled by Jason Bolden, followed the neon trend, sporting a highlighter green umbrella dress — a look straight off the Paris runway from Valentino Haute Couture. The frock featured a mesh, wetsuit-like construction with thick vertical lines cascading down the center and sides. Erivo teamed the dress with beige leather gloves and bold earrings by Wempe.

As for footwear, Erivo opted for a daring pair of metallic platform heels also from Valentino. The shoes sat atop what appears to be a 10-inch heel. Erivo completed the look with her platinum buzz cut.

Of heels, Bolden shared during E!’s pre-show broadcast, “The shoes are like skyscrapers! The color and the shape [of the dress] is so bold and… add some much-needed fantasy.”
