Lily Gladstone rocks earrings made by Montana Indigenous artist at Golden Globes


The earrings Lily Gladstone wore at the Golden Globe Awards can be worn in several different ways. 

When Lily Gladstone made history Sunday evening, becoming the first Native American to win best actress in a motion picture drama, Indigenous people nationwide celebrated while simultaneously trying to figure out who beaded her black-and-white earrings.  

The answer is Lenise Omeasoo, Montana-based Ermineskin Cree and Blackfeet artist.

When Gladstone reached out a few weeks ago, Omeasoo said she knew she had the perfect earrings to match her style.


As Lily Gladstone made history at the Golden Globe Awards, she wore beaded earrings by Montana-based Blackfeet and Ermineskin Cree artist Lenise Omeasoo. 

The earrings, like many of Omeasoo’s pieces, can be worn in several ways — as a rectangular stud or with a dangling butterfly attachment. At the Golden Globe Awards, Gladstone wore the top post of the earring set, showing a black-and-white mirrored Blackfeet design framed by pink and gold glass beads.

Omeasoo said she was honored Gladstone wore her work, adding that the earrings perfectly complemented Gladstone’s Bulgari diamond necklace and white Valentino dress.

“I’m incredibly proud of my fellow Blackfeet sister,” Omeasoo said.


Lenise Omeasoo, founder of Antelope Women Designs and Montana-based Indigenous artist, beaded the earrings Lily Gladstone wore at the Golden Globe Awards Sunday evening.

Since Gladstone’s historic win, Omeasoo said she’s received overwhelming support for her company, Antelope Women Designs.

“The amount of followers and fans that are sharing the work makes me feel very inspired,” she said. “I plan to take this energy and create something with it.”

In her publicity for “Killers of the Flower Moon,” Gladstone has intentionally uplifted the work of local Native artists.

On the cover of “British Vogue” last September, Gladstone wore a large Apsáalooke-style breast plate with vintage brass beads and pink conch pearls by Crow artist Elias Jade NotAfraid. Another photo in the spread shows Blackfeet artist John Pepion’s “Butterfly Dreams” blanket. The blanket, made of cotton, is inspired by butterfly images often painted on tipis or found in the beadwork of Blackfeet people.
