Inside the InStyle & Warner Bros. 2018 Golden Globes After-Party
Few would argue that the 75th Golden Globe Awards wasn’t one to remember, from the epic wins (Nicole Kidman, Frances McDormand, and Allison Janney, to name a few) to the powerful #TimesUp movement that inspired stars to wear black for the evening, to the emotional speeches.
But after the show ends is when the party really begins (in our humble opinion), and it starts with the InStyle & Warner Bros. official after-party, located just steps away from the awards ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif. and sponsored by Cadillac, Eyelove, L'Oreal and Perrier-Jouet,
Minutes after the night's final award was announced, stars like Mariah Carey, Ashley Judd, Reese Witherspoon, and Tracee Ellis Ross shimmied on over to the gorgeous, tented party space to celebrate the evening’s big wins.
The Beverly Hilton Hotel’s famed fountain was transformed into a tented space to serve as the party venue, with a modern twist on French Baroque architecture (think “Reimagined Louis XVI”) as the theme.
After posing on the carpet and checking out the InStyle Instagram elevator booth (a must), stars made their way inside to grab a glass of bubbly and nosh on donuts and gelato (fact) while celebrating the evening’s big moments (because the appropriate way to celebrate definitely includes champagne and donuts...). Now that's what we call a nightcap.

"This wasn't a fashion statement, this was a statement of solidarity. It was an action statement. For us it goes beyond this moment because this is a movement," Longoria told InStyle.

"To me, it’s not the color, black, that’s meaningful as it is how many people are wearing black, and how many people are supporting this movement by using their bodies to visually represent something that sometimes our voices aren’t able to say, and sometimes our ears aren’t able to hear," Woodley told InStyle.

"To be honest, I’ve just never had more fun on the red carpet. I’ve never felt more excited to be in a room. Oprah’s speech was amazing. Barbara Streisand’s speech, amazing," Watson told InStyle.
"Every opportunity like this that we've been given to bring voice to this moment felt profound. Walking the red carpet. Sitting with our tribe. Getting to speak to collaborators, women, and people throughout all industries. Banding together to try to say Time's Up on abusive power. So it's just a remarkable night," Dern added.

"I think what's great is the fact that when people come together, you can redefine anything. And today we redefined that. It's not just the color of mourning. It is the color of unity. From today on," Hayek Pinault told InStyle of changing the meaning of the color black.

Adam Devine and Sarah Hyland
"Mira [Sorvino] is my number one woman crush right now, today. Yeah, I worked with her. She’s going to be on Modern [Family], and I worked with her and that’s why she’s one of my big crushes right now," Hyland told InStyle.
Laverne Cox, Anthony Anderson, and Rutina Wesley
"I’ve been so inspired by all of the men, women, nonbinary people, who have come forward and said, 'Me too.' And that’s only the beginning. We have to change the systems and the structures that allow these things to continue to happen," Cox told InStyle.
"It’s a very special night. I really tried to make it about everyone else. My brother because I couldn’t have done it without him. And Tommy Wiseau because he’s got some strange destiny, as crazy as he is. He was meant to come and be here tonight, so I wanted to share it with them," he told InStyle.
Gaten Matarazzo, Rachel Brosnahan, and Michael Zegen
"I am here wearing black in solidarity with my sisters and brothers across all industries saying Time’s Up on abuse of power, sexual harassment, assault, feeling unsafe in the workplace. Enough," Brosnahan told InStyle of what her Vionnet dress means to her. "I mean I would have worn a sweatshirt or a T-shirt if it meant that I was here in solidarity with all of these incredible people and the people at home."
Caleb McLaughlin and Sadie Sink
Allison Janney and Laura Brown
"Proud to be holding a Golden Globe finally. I’ve been here many times before, and I’ve not gone home with one. So this is a build up to a great moment," Janney told InStyle.
