Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg Made a Surprise Appearance in InStyle’s Golden Globes Elevator

The 77th Golden Globes Awards ceremony included surprising wins in television and movies, heartfelt tributes to Tom Hanks and Ellen DeGeneres, and plenty of showstopping after-parties, including InStyle and Warner Bros’ bash. Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg made a grand entrance in InStyle’s art-deco inspired elevator, an annual tradition that features A-List celebrities arriving at the after-party via a custom-designed elevator.

In one clip, our founder sat on a stool in an elegant all-black ensemble eating a cupcake while her co-host and close friend, Snoop Dogg, stood nearby. Another clip featured Martha decorating a three-tiered cake with a piping bag and enjoying a sip of a dirty martini.

“After a long day at work in a tv studio @snoopdogg and I went to the @instylemagazine party and met up with @douglasfriedman who is the famous elevator photographer Take a look,” Martha wrote in her caption on Instagram.

The elevator, which is a staple at the after-party, was designed by interior designer and creative director Nicole Hollis. “Our inspiration for this year’s elevator was the Golden Age of Hollywood and mid-century modern design,” Hollis shared with InStyle. “We wanted to balance out dark and light while incorporating elements of gold, scalloped patterns, and dark hues.”

Other celebrities who made an appearance in this year’s elevator included Rachel Brosnahan, Laverne Cox, Sarah Hyland, Naomi Watts, and Hailey Bieber, who took a large bite out of the cake that Martha decorated.

Turkey Bibim Burger

Ingredients

1 pound (454 grams) ground turkey
1/2 cup (120 milliliters) furikake seasoning
4 sesame seed hamburger buns, split
1 teaspoon salt
20 to 30 thin cucumber slices
1 small carrot, julienned (20-30 thin strips)
1 cup white vinegar
4 large eggs
1 tablespoon (15 milliliters) butter
4 teaspoons gochujang (Korean red pepper paste)
1/4 cup (60 milliliters) mayonnaise
1/2 cup (120 milliliters) bean sprouts
4 to 8 roasted nori sheets
1/4 cup (60 milliliters) kimchi

Directions

Place cucumber and julienned carrots in small mason jars, cover with vinegar and let sit at least 30 minutes.
Mix together ground turkey and furikake until uniform. Make 4 large, but very thin, patties.
Set a large frying pan at medium heat, and place burgers in it, cooking for 4-5 minutes on each side, until cooked through.
While the burgers are cooking, in another non stick pan on low heat melt butter, then crack all four eggs into the pan. Slow cook the eggs sunny side up until all the whites are cooked and the yellows are still runny, remove from heat.
Assemble the burgers, with gochujang and mayo on the bottom bun, then the burger, then place the rest of the ingredients in this order if you choose: pickled cucumber, kimchi, nori, egg, pickled carrots and bean sprouts.
