Last Sunday marked the 96th Oscars Award Show. With the Academy Awards came a kaleidoscope of unique fashion, where celebrities dazzled like stars in their own right. From sleek tuxedos to voluminous gowns, every ensemble was a masterpiece, setting the stage for a night of glamor and style. There were many stand-out fashion choices throughout the red carpet that sparked my eye. 

One look that came to mind was America Ferrera’s beautiful pink Versace look. She was draped in a sparkly pink sleek gown that looked amazing on her. Ferrera was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in “Barbie.” I thought this look was perfect for her and I love how she tied in elements from “Barbie.” 

Another stand-out for me was Zendaya’s gorgeous look. She was dressed in a lovely pink and black gown by Armani Privé. Her elegance throughout the night was giving old Hollywood vibes and I thought she looked stunning. 

While he did not attend the Oscars, Chris Evans attended the Vanity Fair Oscars Afterparty and looked amazing. Evans wore a suede red suit styled by Dolce & Gabbana. It’s not often you see a man in a bright bold color, but Evans pulled it off extremely well. Even though it was just the Afterparty, his looks were memorable. 

Another memorable look was Margot Robbie’s beautiful black gown by Versace. This past year, Robbie has worn looks inspired by Barbie but this one was a little different. This elegant black look was not inspired by any Barbie however some say it’s a nod to her not being nominated. Everyone was shocked when Robbie did not receive a nomination for Best Actress for her role in “Barbie.” People believe this all-black look was her response to not being acknowledged. 

While Margot Robbie didn’t get nominated for “Barbie,” Billie Eilish did. Eilish was nominated for Best Original Song for her performance of “What Was I Made For?” She won this category and looked stunning in a black-and-white Chanel look. She wore a black blazer and an old-school tweed Chanel skirt. Eilish looked sleek and mature in this look and I loved it. 

Emma Stone was the talk of the town at the Oscars this year, for she took home a win in the category of best actress in a leading role for her portrayal in “Poor Things.” Stone wore a gorgeous light green Louis Vuitton gown. She accessorized her outfit with a beautiful diamond necklace that pulled the look together. Stone looked classy and beautiful, perfect for an Oscar winner. 

Even though most celebrities looked amazing, some looks did not hit the mark for me. One in particular was Dwayne Johnson in his satin Dolce & Gabbana suit. The suit was an odd gray color but the reason it looked so bad was it was very wrinkled. 

This might be an unpopular option, but I did not like Ariana Grande’s pink puffy look at the Oscars. Grande wore a custom Giambattista Valli gown that was a nod to her character Glinda in her upcoming film “Wicked.” I thought she looked beautiful and her hair and makeup were great, but the gown looked like a sleeping bag. The puffy sleeves were very oversized and I’m just not sure it looked right. 

One last look that I did not enjoy was Andrea Riseborough’s plaid Loewe dress. To me, the dress was not flattering and sort of just looked like a quilt. It didn’t seem elegant enough for an award show such as the Oscars. 

The Oscars red carpet showcased a plethora of fashion statements, with some ensembles stunning in their elegance and creativity, while others missed the mark with questionable choices and mismatched styles. Nevertheless, the diverse array of fashion choices contributed to a memorable and wonderful night of achievements.
