Eddie Murphy’s Girlfriend Paige Butcher’s Style Evolution From Strappy Heels at Golden Globes to Thong Sandals Streetside

Eddie Murphy is a longtime attendee of the Golden Globe Awards and other red carpet events in Hollywood — as is his girlfriend, Australian actress and model Paige Butcher.

From the 1980s to today, Murphy has frequently appeared at awards — notably the Golden Globes, which honor the top performances in television and film throughout the last year (he’s even a six-time Globes winner himself, including for his roles in “Dreamgirls” and “Saturday Night Live”). A similarly frequent attendee alongside him has been his girlfriend Butcher, always elegantly dressed for the occasion — and her versatile style also extends to the street, seen during their numerous outings and trips together over the years.

Ahead of the 2023 Golden Globes on Tuesday night, where Murphy will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award for his contributions to the entertainment industry over the decades, discover his and Butcher’s top appearances together below.

In Nov. 2012, Murphy attended the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Phoenix Suns NBA basketball game at Staples Center with Butcher. The duo arrived hand-in-hand in matching jet-black outfits: Murphy in a long-sleeved T-shirt, jeans and lace-up boots, and Butcher in a top, skinny jeans and knee-high boots with a biker jacket and studded satchel handbag.
