Every year, the Oscars brings many interesting and unique fashion pieces to the television screen.
The biggest stars in movies walked the red carpet Sunday at the 91st Academy Awards in some very stunning (and some very unattractive) attire.
Actors and actresses were nominated for their performances in the year’s most popular movies, including “A Star Is Born,” “BlacKkKlansman,” “Black Panther,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Crazy Rich Asians,” “If Beale Street Could Talk” and “Vice.”
Some actresses, like Amy Adams (“Vice”), Glenn Close (“The Wife) and Regina King (“If Beale Street Could Talk”) rocked the red carpet in amazing pieces of clothing.
Close stepped out in a floor-length golden dress with a cape. Her dress, made by Wes Gordon at Carolina Herrera, is one many won’t forget. It was made with 4 million gold beads and weighed 42 pounds.
Maya Rudolph and Melissa McCarthy also wore dresses with capes attached.
King wore a stunning white, strapless dress with a large leg slit and long train. It draped beautifully and looked perfect on her body.
Lady Gaga (“A Star Is Born”) walked the red carpet in a classy, plain black dress. It was unexpected because of her usual wild attire choices.
The most popular color on the red carpet was pink.
Amanda Stenberg (“The Hate You Give”), Angela Bassett (presenter), Jason Momoa (“Aquaman”), Jennifer Hudson (“RBG”) and Kacey Musgraves (presenter) all wore different shades of the hue.
Stenberg’s dress was one of the best of the night. Her dress had sweetheart neckline, tight-fitting bodice and an A-line fringe skirt. The light shade of pink she wore complemented her skin tone and hair color.
Musgraves’ dress was bubblegum pink, made almost entirely of tulle. While the color suited her well, the dress was a monstrosity. The tulle shoulders and sleeves were obnoxious and unnecessary. The full, three-tiered tulle skirt was hard to miss and eye-drawing in a negative way. The rhinestone bow belt on the dress did not help its appeal.
Momoa strutted down the red carpet in a pale pink, velvet suit designed by Karl Lagerfeld, who passed away Feb. 19. He accessorized with a matching pink scrunchie. It was one of the most original suits at the Academy Awards, though, the color didn’t quite work with Momoa’s complexion.
Rudolph, who opened the Oscars and presented the Outstanding Supporting Actress category, also wore a bright pink, floral print dress with a cape. The color looked good on her, but the dress did not flatter her figure in the slightest.
The men at the Oscars wore some very classy suits and tuxedos. Bradley Cooper (“A Star Is Born”), Jordan Peele (“BlacKkKlansman”) and Rami Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody”) all wore classic black tuxedos with matching black bow ties.
Spike Lee (“BlacKkKlansman”), who is well-known for colorful and unique clothing, wore a monochromatic purple ensemble suit that included a matching purple newsboy cap.
Jennifer Lopez (presenter) wore a dress that resembled a disco ball. The dress was mock-necked with long-sleeves. It fit her form perfectly and caught the stage lights beautifully.
Emilia Clark, who introduced Jennifer Hudson before she performed, was dressed in a stunning purple, shimmery dress. The pale purple color matched well with her skin tone and made her eyes appear brighter.
