The Dolby Theater in Los Angeles has rolled out a sophisticated champagne-colored carpet this Sunday night. The great stars of the film scene have paraded through it, but also models, musicians and artists of all kinds because like many other red carpets, the Oscars seeks to be more elegant and sophisticated in these times of excessive media information. No celebrity of the moment should be left in the dark.
The prelude to the 95th edition of the Oscars has been a master class in glamor in terms of style and also a trip to the past, specifically to the fifties. Primarily dyed in black and white with princess-cut dresses and strapless necklines, red carpet fashion brings back the classic and elegant pieces that gave rise to the so-called Old Hollywood aesthetic.
The golden decade of classic cinema sneaks into the most important film awards this 2023 through silver designs such as Jessica Chastain’s Louis Vuitton or Ana de Armas’s nude with gemstones, also signed by the French house and that undoubtedly evokes the that Marilyn Monroe – who she plays in the film – wore Blonde– to sing his legendary “Happy birthday Mr President”.
One of the first to open the prelude to the awards was Janet Yang, president of the Academy, clad in a metallic tunic-style dress. Dresses with trains and kilometer slits have been the protagonists of suits that seek to exude elegance over attracting attention. It has been demonstrated by the interpreter Nicole Kidman, dressed by Giorgio Armani, with a successful black sequined dress, with shoulder pads and two large rosettes, one on the shoulder and the other at waist height, sober but sensational.
Jaime Lee Curtis blended in with the champagne-colored carpet in the prelude to the awards and opted for a naked dress by Dolce&Gabbana, with powdery pink sequins and an original corseted bodice.
Neutral tones such as beige, pink or nude have starred in many of the looks that have paraded at these awards. Allison Williams, for example, has opted for a romantic nude dress with stitched roses and a pink coat as an overskirt.
In this sense, the stridencies have been counted on the fingers of one hand: Florence Pugh’s voluminous quilt-type dress, Rihanna’s curious two-piece leather, Stephanie Hsu in a very strident pink or Angela Bassell with a design full of volumes and asymmetries.
Beyond these few extravagances, the Oscars red carpet has left dresses to remember. The spectacular red design of the model Cara Delevingne has captured all eyes, and not surprisingly, the design is part of the haute couture collection of the Lebanese designer Elie Saab, and she has skillfully combined it with Cartier jewels .
Michelle Williams has conquered those present dressed by Chanel, with one of the most romantic looks of the evening, white with a silver beaded neckline and a subtle transparent cape with metallic details.
