I love to see my favorite actors and actresses “come correct” and ready to stunt at an event that celebrates them. But overall, nothing has ever compared to an event such as the Oscars. Not only did the women have jaw dropping moments with the gowns they wore, but some of the men also held their grounds with favorable nods towards their stylist’s direction.
Here, in no ranking order, are a few of my favorite looks from last night’s Oscar event.
An immediate head-turner was Angela Bassett looking like the most perfect Christmas gift in her Alberta Ferretti gown. She complimented the red carpet as she demanded attention in this puff-sleeve gown.
Although Zendaya is continuing to transform into the beautiful young woman that we’ve seen her grow to be from her Disney days, this Oscar look she debuted reminds us that her look will always remain timeless. In a strapless yellow Valentino gown, it was almost impossible to not stare as her long stresses complimented her look so effortlessly.
Although others may note a black ensemble as “basic” or “traditional” for award shows, Daniel Kaluuya’s look was done just right in his fitting edge tux. I love how he paired his look with a few jewelry pieces to highlight the dark undertones of his outfit. Remember, less can always be more.
Viola Davis, you have my heart! First and foremost, I love how Davis has always made it known that she’s comfortable in her own skin and styles. In this white Alexander McQueen dress, she looks stunning pairing the intricate cut out top with a natural Mohawk inspired updo.
I must admit, I went speechless after seeing Regina King in this exquisite Louis Vuitton custom piece. I almost didn’t recognize King in this garment, but she completely made it her very own. This is definitely one of the best Oscar fashion worthy moments of the night and the statement sleeve only heightened the silhouette of the gown. In this beautiful hue of blue, King practically won the night alone.
Make sure to vote your reaction in the polls of these red carpet Oscar looks.
