The red carpet at the Oscars is the holy ground of actors getting honest fashion remarks, and 2023 saw lots of off-the-runway designer wear.
The Best Fashion at the 2023 Oscars
Michelle Yeoh stunned in delicate, feathered Christian Dior Couture with Moussaieff jewelry. Including her history-making win as the second POC actress to win in the Best Actress category, “Everything Everywhere All At Once” becomes the most-awarded film of all time.
Fellow Best Actress honoree Michelle Williams stood in Chanel Couture with Tiffany & Co. jewelry with a diamond-encrusted veiled cape around her shoulders.
Nicole Kidman decided to age backward, opting for a sexy all-black look in Armani Privé with OMEGA jewelry.
Best Original Song nominee and Super Bowl Halftime performer Rihanna didn’t let pregnancy halt fashion mastery. The music legend and billionaire entrepreneur wowed in chocolate-colored leather Alaïa with Moussaieff jewelry.
Emily Blunt pulls all the stops for Oscar night in a white off-the-shoulder Valentino gown and pink-beaded Chopard earrings.
Kate Hudson looked like a life-sized disco ball (in the best way possible) in Louis Vuitton.
Lady Gaga wore the closing look of Versace’s recent LA show, a beautiful dress with a black sheen upper-body material but a low-waisted black heavy skirt. It’s the perfect intersection between goth and sexy.
The only man who overcame the cursed sea of tuxedos is Paul Mesca in Gucci– an oversized white blazer accentuated with a red rose paired with loose-fitted black dress pants.
Oscar night is incomplete without mentioning Janelle Monae’s gorgeous Vera Wang moment. The black brassiere cutting into the rich, lush orange lower half is mouthwatering.
Florence Pugh walked the Oscars in Valentino Le Club Couture, a beige taffeta draped dress with black faille bows. Fellow Valentino companion Stephanie Hsu, Best Actress in a Supporting Role nominee, wore a neon pink taffeta bustier dress.
Cara Delevingne embraces sobriety in the best revenge dress of 2023: a deep rep look from Elie Saab Couture with Bulgari jewelry.
Questionable Fashion Choices
Rooney Mara’s look was simply okay. The proportions cut the upper part of her torso weirdly or maybe it’s the knotted train at the end. There’s no proper way to sell a contorted bead sheet. It’s an Alexander McQueen miss but all the accent points including the Fred Leighton jewelry, is a win.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson attempted to overcome the sea of black tuxedos, however, the bizarre burnt peach-toned and glossy blazer didn’t hit the sweet spot.
Melissa McCarthy’s poufy red Christian Siriano dress radiated the 2022 cult-classic “Pearl,” in the worst way possible. It reminded everyone why she wasn’t the star of the Oscar’s red carpet.
Maybe Julia Louis-Dreyfus decided to cosplay as a elementary school teacher in this patterned Lanvin dress with Nikos Koulis jewelry
“Blonde” star Ana de Armas needed to cut bottom of her silver Louis Vuitton dress really bad.
“Killing Eve” star Sandra Oh was the rare Sandra No in an awkward shade of tangerine by Giambattista Valli.
