Rihanna's makeup artist Priscilla Ono discussed the look in a press release from Fenty Beauty. She explained: "We wanted to create a clean, refreshed beauty look using all rose gold hues as a soft juxtaposition to the dramatic structure of her gown. We kept the eye minimal and mixed different rose gold tones on her lips, cheeks and body for an all-over sheen."

As for A$AP Rocky, the rapper went with a "compact wool and satin jacket and trousers and brushed leather lace-up shoes," according to a release.

Rihanna's "Lift Me Up" later lost to "Naatu Naatu" by Kala Bhairava, M.M. Keeravani, and Rahul Sipligunj, for RRR.

The couple's appearance at the Golden Globes comes ahead of Rihanna's high-anticipated Super Bowl Halftime Show. The superstar singer recently released a line of merch for the event through her Savage X Fenty brand.

Rocky, on the other hand, is gearing up for the release of his long-awaited fourth studio album. He shared "D.M.B." off of the effort, in May of last year. The project will be his first full-length effort since 2018's Testing.
