The new crop of stylish celebrities winning awards season

For fashion lovers, one thing that always makes it easier to return to work in January is the start of awards season. Kicking off with the Golden Globes and lasting until the Oscars, it's a six-week gown-a-thon that also inspires many of the year's fashion trends.

What's refreshing this year is that there seems, at least in the early stages, to be a changing of the guard. No longer are the red carpet moments monopolised by the likes of Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett and Julia Roberts (who has already worn two "mullet" top and pants combinations this season. Will she make it three at the Screen Actors Guild Awards?). So, I hereby introduce you to the Class of 2019: awards edition.

Lucy Boynton and Rami Malek

Move over Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk, this is Hollywood's new power couple, and quite frankly, I cannot get enough. Boynton's gold dress at the Globes was 1970s-inspired perfection by Celine, which has copped a right-old beating since Hedi Slimane took over from Phoebe Philo. If this is the direction Slimane will take after his much-maligned debut show, then there may be hope. And while the critics didn't like Boynton's dress at the Critics' Choice Awards, it did feature one of the red carpet trends of the year: bows.

Oh, Timothee, it's not even your breakout award year and you are KILLING IT on the red carpet. We fell in love with your sequined Louis Vuitton "it's not a harness" bib at the Golden Globes and again with your McQueen graffiti suit at the Critics' Choice. People talk about you "taking risks" but we beg to differ. You're a Beautiful Boy and we can't wait for Oscars night.

Yvonne Strahovski

So, the Australian A Handmaid's Tale actor's Instagram may have plenty of photos of the breakfasts she has made her husband but her star as a style icon is rising. New York-based Australian stylist Cat Pope, who has dressed plenty of celebrities for awards shows, has tipped that Sydney-born Strahovski is one to watch, even if we were divided on her Alberta Ferretti "chewed up spearmint Extra" gown at the Globes. Willing to give her more time.

Cody Fern

Another Australian turning heads this year is Cody Fern, who starred in the critically-acclaimed The Assassination Of Gianni Versace. And while there were plenty of eyes on his beautifully gender-fluid sheer shirt at the Globes, it's his Maison Margiela Tabi "hoof" boots that have set tongues wagging. He appears to own at least two pairs of the infamous shoes – in black and grey – which cost about $1100. The Tabi's chequered history dates back to 1988, when models wore them in the label's catwalk show. And it seems another 30-year-old, from Western Australia, is spearheading a bit of a revival.

Billy Porter

After coming to the Golden Globes as a Bedazzler gone rogue, I didn't think anything could top the Pose star's maiden awards season look. I was wrong. For the Critics' Choice Awards, Porter came as a steaming mug of Jarrah choc-caramel featuring another bow, proving it's a trend that is here to stay. So get thee to Spotlight and hit the satin section, stat.

Get the look

Take inspiration from the bow trend that swamping the award show red carpets with these pieces.
