Lorde, Emma Stone Wear the Pants at the Golden Globes

Lorde, Emma Stone

'Transparent' creator Jill Soloway and Tina Fey also made pants look chic at Sunday's award show

Amid the sparkly sequined gowns and the bold embellished dresses, there were a few standout pants looks that, though free of frills, were equally as chic. From elegant jumpsuits (Emma Stone in Lanvin) to borrowed-from-the-boys pantsuits (Tina Fey), the red-carpet pants trend made a small but noteworthy showing at Sunday evening’s Golden Globes.

Lorde, who always manages to make menswear look elegant on the red carpet, arrived in a custom Narciso Rodriguez suit in her signature black. The Best Original Song nominee tamed her curls in a slick ponytail and finished the look with a glittering Neil Lane diamond statement necklace.

Jill Soloway, creator of the Golden-Globe winning TV series Transparent, rocked a bold choice in a printed blue Kenzo suit and platform Prada shoes as she accepted her award.

After her mid-show outfit change, Tina Fey returned to the stage in a luxe tuxedo, complete with an undone sequined bow tie and killer stilettos. Sideswept hair and a coral lip made for the perfect complement to Poehler's navy butterfly gown.

Not to be outdone, Prince — one of the evening's surprise presenters — showed up in a funky metallic suit, which he appropriately paired with his signature oversize shades.
