The Oscars did not disappoint this year. We brought back people to host and we saw the slap heard around the world. But besides that, the fashion didn’t disappoint and here’s my list of best dressed this year.
Even though Rachel wasn’t nominated for her performance in West Side Story, she looked amazing as a presenter at the awards. She wore Dior Haute Couture and was on trend with the lacy black ensembles that graced the carpet at both the show and the after-party. It fit her every curve and I loved the dramatic back. I’m glad that The Academy decided to send her an invitation.
Ariana had everyone’s jaws dropping when she walked onto the red carpet. No one expected her to wear this Valentino Haute Couture pantsuit with matching shawl and she was living for every moment. Not to mention that she won Best Supporting Actress for West Side Story. What a cool moment that she got to share that experience with fellow Anita actress, Rita Moreno.
Lupita looked like a real-life Oscar on the red carpet in a gorgeous Prada gown. I loved that the dress shined on the carpet with all the sequins and fringe pieces. And had a simple pink floral pattern to add a feminine touch. Lastly, Lupita always rocks new and interesting hairstyles on the carpet and she didn’t disappoint. The braids and the twists accentuated her modern dress.
For her first Oscars, I thought Saniyya looked amazing on the red carpet. She looked like a classic beauty with her Audrey Hepburn-esque hair and embroidered gown. It was playful and fun and I loved the color combination. She looked like she popped out of a spring garden.
Newcomer, Kodi Smit-McPhee, looked fresh and cool at the ceremony. He’s the kind of guy who can pull off more eccentric looks and I thought he definitely pulled off this bright blue Bottega Veneta tux. Brooches were a big trend for men on the carpet, and I liked that he decided to wear a necklace instead. I thought it was a nice change from seeing the usual tie. Also, can we talk about those matching woven shoes…
Andrew Garfield has been expanding his fashion horizons this awards season, and I’m living for it. He’s been playing with different silhouettes and looks and he made no exception for The Oscars. He wore a Saint Laurent tuxedo with a burgundy jacket and a silk black dress shirt with a matching Western-style bow tie. Very fashion-forward, but kept the rest of the ensemble simple.
