The 20 Best Fashion Moments from the 2020 Oscars

So here it goes. The last (fashion) hurrah of Hollywood’s 2020 awards season. And what an evening its turned out to be. From the usual suspects serving us that unattainable movie star glam to boundary-pushing style and hey, even a small crop of men who dared beyond a black tux, we sure are impressed. Here’s who the won on the 2020 Oscars red carpet…

Natalie Portman in Dior

Kicking off the list is the actress’s Maria Grazia Chiuri creation which features the names of women who were snubbed in the awards’ nominations list. The kind of fashion statement we can *all* get behind.

Saoirse Ronan in Gucci

Debuting all-new bangs while simultaneously pulling off this one-of-a-kind gown? We don’t know how she does it.

Scarlett Johansson in Oscar de la Renta

Oh, this bodice! Silky, sparkly and impossibly sexy; we’re positively swooning. (But also slightly jealous of the $2.5 million worth of diamonds she’s sporting)

Charlize Theron in Dior Haute Couture

The French fashion house’s darling looked resplendent in this leg-baring gown. (Are we the only ones getting Angelina Jolie vibes from this look?)

Billie Eilish in Chanel

The only red-carpet dressing rule is that there isn’t any. And Billie is a testament to exactly that. The singer flaunted her love for oversized clothing in a monochrome bouclé suit.

Renee Zellweger in Armani Prive

She may have taken home the Best Actress trophy but we say this sequinned floor-sweeping number deserves an award of its own.

Timothée Chalamet in Prada

Mechanic but make it fashion? Gym coach but make it fashion? Valet but make it fashion? Interpret it as you might, there’s no denying that the actor turned heads for all the right reasons.

Penelope Cruz in Chanel

Dipping into Chanel’s 1995 collection, Cruz oozed sophistication in a satin ballgown that was reworked and refitted for her.

Cynthia Erivo in Atelier Versace\

Twitter declared this bright white gown ‘Superhero meets Marie Antoinette’ and frankly, you’d think this unexpected combination wouldn’t work but it sure does and how.

Rooney Mara in Alexander McQueen

Going the minimal route on accessories and makeup, the actress let her ethereal lacy gown take the centerstage it rightfully deserves.

Janelle Monae in Ralph Lauren

And the award for shiniest dress goes to… this hooded number which, we hear, took over 600 hours to make.

Kaitlyn Dever in Louis Vuitton 

Making a case for eco-fashion, the actress happily told reporters that she’s wearing a “completely sustainable dress”. LV created this embellished gown with tencel and the Dever finished off the look with $47 Aldo sandals.

Florence Pugh in Louis Vuitton

The Little Women star stood in the car on her way to the awards show and we totally get why. Who would want a wrinkle on this delightful tiered turquoise dress?

Spike Lee in Gucci

The filmmaker paid a touching tribute to Kobe Bryant through his custom purple suit which featured gold trimming and the late basketball player’s jersey number, 24, on the lapel.

Regina King in Versace

How could we miss a look that features the hallmarks of red carpet dressing? This fitted powder pink gown that includes an enchanting train is a 10/10.

Brie Larson in Celine

13,000 Swarovski crystals, 1,200 of hand embroidery, 110,000 glass beads and 6,500 pink strassed jewels. Take a minute to take in just how much work went into this breathtaking caped creation.

Sandra Oh in Elie Saab

Sandra Oh in Elie Saab 3

 

Oh picked this dreamy metallic gown featuring giant puffy tulle on the sleeves and hem. Safe to say the ongoing love affair between tulle and red carpets is here to stay.

Lily Aldridge in Ralph Lauren

Trends may come and trends may go but a beautifully draped dress will never cease to win us over. The red carpet co-host cut a pretty picture in this archive ensemble.

Brad Goreski in Alexander McQueen

Yes, it is a black tux but it is far from being basic. Goreski felt “like a Queen in McQueen” in this elevated classic and we have to stan the vibe.

Krysty Wilson-Cairns in Alberta Ferretti

Krysty Wilson Cairns

Yet again, it’s tulle for the win. The Best Original Screenplay nominee looked polished in a beige duchesse and tulle ballgown that was finished off with an asymmetric bow.
