This past Sunday the 93rd Oscars took place, and we were lucky enough that some of the event was able to take place in-person, including a redcarpet. Today we’re looking at some of the best looks from this weekend!
Carey Mulligan wore this dramatic Valentino gown in monochrome gold that was the center of attention. It features a dramatic, wide silhouette and is broken up in the torso with a well-placed cutout. She was nominated for her starring role Promising Young Woman, and the film’s director, Emerald Fennell, took home the Best Original Screenplay Oscar for the work.
Zendaya also wore a Valentino dress, to the award show, where she present the Oscar for Best Original Score. Her bright yellow look has a soft, flowing silhouette that compliments her perfectly. The look is also accented with statement necklaces from Bulgari. It was designed specially by Valentino creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli, and took artisans over 300 hours to produce. This extraordinary gown even has its own name, the Force de beauté, and was inspired by Cher.
Amanda Seyfried was sure to make a statement in this bold tulle gown by Armani Privé. It features a deep v-neck, fitted bodice, and was accessorized with simple jewelry, makeup, and red lipstick. Seyfried was nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category for her role in Mank, a film that follows the production of the iconic Citizen Kane. This was her first individual nomination, which she dedicated to her father, who she says loves old movies, and even went with her to set during filming.
We absolutely love this unique YSL men’s look worn by Lakeith Stanfield. In a sea of simple suits, this unique fit, featuring a low neckline and high, belted waist, is a flattering and interesting change. Stanfield had been nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Judas and the Black Messiah, and this 70s-inspired look is a great nod to the time period the film was set in.
Chloe Zhao made history on Sunday night as the first Asian woman to win the Oscar for Best Director for her film Nomadland. Not only did she have a historic win, but she looked good doing it in this nude dress from the Hermès Fall/Winter 2021 collection. She paired the dress with white sneakers, also from Hermès, and opted for simple braids and a makeup-free face for tons of simple elegance with a look much more pared-down than we’re used to at the Oscars.
Viola Davis was another style standout in this custom-made Alexander McQueen dress. This gorgeously detailed gown was made for her, with the bodice crafted to fit her measurements and skin ton for a bold, flattering look. Her makeup was done entirely using L’Oréal, an affordable drugstore departure from the luxury brands we’re used to seeing worn on red carpets. Davis also made history this year when she received her fourth nomination, making her the most nominated Black actress of all time.
This years Oscars definitely looked different from what we’re used to, and since they took place in April rather than February we got to see lots of color and popular trends for spring. Whose look was your favorite? Be sure to let us know in the comments!
