oscars and fashion


Back at the old Dolby Theater, a seemingly endless list of stars announced, finally the usual red carpet procedure again, but if everything seems so normal, don’t let anyone just spin free with bliss. So, supposedly, the Academy asked guests to cover their knees (women) and wear classic tuxedos instead of the sometimes wild choice of colors (men). Nice try. Most of the nominees, presenters or other guests carefully ignored the announcement.

But given the state of the news, why should one bother with such banal and completely outdated guidelines? So at the Oscars there was: breaking the rules by any measure, lots of color, not so many bare stomachs anymore, just a few bare knees. A little action was also needed in the red carpet genre: the previous awards season was poorer than ever in terms of clothing. At the beginning of the year there were hardly any stars in the way because of Omikron, then the Golden Globes were held as a private event. That’s a bit boring for those who work with good and even better bad clothes, for big designer brands it’s a mid-sized catastrophe. After all, legendary images of inestimable publicity value continue to be created at the Oscars, despite steadily falling audience ratings. So: full speed ahead!

Many women rely on classic Hollywood glamour. In the good version, for example, with the subsequent Oscar winner Jessica Chastain with color gradient and gold bustier. In something worse with former winner Lupita Nyong’o. Gold for the Oscars? Phew

Not even groundbreaking: red on the red carpet as one of the big trends with Kirsten Dunst, Ariana DeBose and Tracee Ellis Ross. The latter two, like many others, also turned heads with highly memorable excerpts. But with Will Smith’s performances (he slaps comedian Chris Rock after he made a lame joke about Smith’s sick wife) there were so many other moments to gloss over that Venus Williams and her cleavage were really the least of them. problems.

The clearest eye-catchers of the evening were Kristen Stewart in very short black shorts and a very baggy white shirt unbuttoned, as well as Timothée Chalamet, who simply arrived shirtless in a cropped sequined blazer and skinny pants. In an Italian nightclub it would not stand out one iota, but at the Oscars the look was indeed a novelty.

Also unmistakable was Billie Eilish, who was wearing a black, yes, what actually. Dress? bun? Black storm cloud? You thought you saw pants down there, but there were too many messy strips of cloth covering her body. And with that, of all things, she’ll be standing on her parents’ mantelpiece for all eternity, because she and her brother are actually award winners now.

In the run-up, many had wondered how fashion stars would react to the war in Ukraine. There have always been badges on various topics in recent years. Unsurprisingly, actors like Benedict Cumberbatch arrived in a Ukraine pin, Samuel L. Jackson in a tie, Jason Momoa in a blue and yellow bandana. Jamie Lee Curtis and others wore a blue ribbon that read “WithRefugees.” That was it though, which is perhaps a little bit overall, but the topic was discussed more as an alibi anyway, with calls for donations occasionally shown at the awards ceremony.

The race to become the trend of the night was made by an outsider trend, just as the great favorites did not win in many categories: white blouses or white shirts. Not only with Kristen Stewart, but also with Uma Thurman and Zendaya, who arrived in the cropped version with a long silver Valentino Couture skirt, a beautiful updated quote on Sharon Stone’s truly groundbreaking performance in 1996. Just what they love. Oscar fans, small references, subtle tributes. Like Zoë Kravitz with Audrey Hepburn commemorative bangs and a very simple but even prettier pink Saint Laurent dress. Sometimes looking amazing is easy.
