Indeed, Elgort's year started off with Page Six trumpeting, "Unlikely duo of Ansel Elgort and Mariah Carey spent NYE in Dominican Republic. " While the headline evoked notions of an unlikely celebrity friendship, it turns out the pair just happened to be vacationing, separately, at the same resort.
In a red carpet (surprisingly? ) free of the gender-neutral styling stunts of young Hollywood actors, Elgort arrived with his nails painted white and a thin smattering of glitter around his eyes.
Last year's The Goldfinch was one of the more notable flops of fall, and to add insult to injury, Elgort has very publicly lost out on major roles like the young Han Solo gig and the lead in Baz Luhrmann's upcoming Elvis biopic.
Indeed, Elgort did arrive with a bejeweled butterfly brooch attached to his petrol-blue Tom Ford tuxedo jacket, but the more talked-about aspect of his fit last night was the slight homage to Euphoria makeup.
Yet, when the 25-year-old showed up at the Golden Globes on Sunday night he did so with glitter around his eyes, polish on his nail, and a song in his heart (as he demonstrated by belting out a tune while presenting alongside Dakota Fanning, much to the Internet's fascination).
The pair posted a beach photo from the trip, though the particular way Elgort managed to hoist Komyshan up has caught the internet off guard.
Later, Elgort presented Best Original Song alongside Dakota Fanning and decided to break into song himself, with a giggling Fanning by his side.
