While the Golden Globes Award Ceremony is one of the most popular events of the year, it is surrounded by several well-known and much anticipated parties including W Magazine’s Best Performances Party. This year, the W Magazine’s annual pre- golden globe bash was hosted at Chateau Marmont and attended by many celebrities including Gal Gadot, Selma Hayek and Emilia Clarke. Among Hollywood’s finest was rising star Melissa Bolona, whose Anthony Vaccarello featured outfit turned heads both at the party and on Instagram.

W Magazine has made the Pre-Golden Globes party a yearly tradition and many stars have been known to take advantage of the party to socialize and de-stress before the main event. This year, the party was also a site of discussion of the upcoming ‘Black Dress Protest,’ a movement that was meant to highlight the gender pay gap that is still prevalent in the acting and beauty industries.

While Bolona did not comment on the issue, she did don a black and silver dress by famous Italian-Belgian designer, Anthony Vaccarello, at the party. Initially an internationally renowned model, Bolona made her first appearance on the big screen in Grace of God and has since earned a number of featured roles in various films including the recently released Acts of Violence starring action legend Bruce Willis. Despite the tense atmosphere, Bolona seemed to have enjoyed herself and even took to Instagram to share her pre-Golden Globes experience – and her amazing dress- with her fans.

Though still relatively new to the acting world, Bolona’s hard work and dedication will likely earn the star a nomination and maybe even a coveted Golden Globe in the future..
