Bryce Dallas Howard did her own shopping and glam for the 2021 Golden Globe Awards.
The Mandalorian actress, 40, values sustainable fashion and often purchases her own dresses for the red carpet. So she decided to continue the tradition for her appearance at Sunday night's Golden Globes ceremony where she presented the award for best director to Chloé Zhao for Nomadland.
"As many of you know, I love the sustainability of consignment fashion and often find secondhand pieces for press ✨," Dallas Howard said on Instagram.
She visited one of her go-to online luxury consignment retailers — TheRealReal — to find the perfect dress for the occasion. "When I found out I was presenting at the #GoldenGlobes, I immediately went back to my tried and true friend, @therealreal!" the star said.
Dallas Howard ended up falling in love with a completely sequined ombré pink Temperley London cocktail dress, which she accessorized with pumps already in her closet.
"Tonight's 'fit is a @TemperleyLondon sequin ombré dress (which matches my hair!) with magenta @alexandermcqueen pumps from a press tour a few years ago," Dallas Howard said.
While the dress is no longer available for purchase on TheRealReal since Dallas Howard snagged it, another one is still for sale on FarFetch for $1,672.
The actress also decided to take glam into her own hands for the event. "For hair and makeup, tonight seemed like the perfect night to put my own skills to the test — thank you @mrjasonlow and @vivianbaker for your incredible virtual direction! " she said, calling out hairstylist Jason Low and and makeup artist Vivian Baker for talking her through the process.
Over the years Dallas Howard has been vocal about the difficulties that come with dressing for the carpet when you're not a sample size and explained how she usually prefers to shop for herself rather than rely on a stylist.
"That's the comfortable way to go through these things," she said at the Critics' Choice Awards in 2016. "I alluded to this a little before [at the Golden Globes], but it's when you're not 'sample' size, or when you don't have a direct relationship with a designer, or if you don't have a lot of notice, those types of size 6 dresses just aren't that available that much … So, what I found is that if something is sort of last-minute, or I don't have a good relationship with a place, then I go to Neiman's, or I get something online."
