Happy 90th, Oscar! We are still mesmerized by the bright array of dress and suits on that Hollywood’s biggest night. We’ve bowed down to these pros who totally slayed the red carpet. It’s hard to win the Oscars, but it’s even harder to win the Best-Dressed, and here’s the recap of some of the best moments here.
Frances McDormand in intarsia gold, took home with the gold (which was nearly stolen but returned!) for her leading role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Not your average award-winning actress, she might as well have won “Best Beauty by Wearing No Makeup” with her relaxed approach to red carpet style. And her rousing “stand with me” speech marked a powerful moment and her 2 words stunned the audience and changed Hollywood, “inclusion rider”. Nothing could have possibly been more beautiful.
Gary Oldman winning Best Actor for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in the Darkest Hour could have been his finest hour. And of course the film also won Makeup and Hairstyling Award for the amazing prosthetic makeup for his transformation.
Get Out Star Daniel Kaluuya did not take home with him the golden statue, but he might have run the Best-Dressed looking on point in his caramel Brunello Cucinelli velvet tux jacket. And likely the Best Response to awkward “box-ticking” question on the red carpet.
Not to mention the youngest best actor nominee in almost 80 years, Timothée Chalamet stole the show with his white Berluti suit. At 22, Timothée has been the Hollywood heartthrob making everyone swoon with his role in Call Me by Your Name.
So many great movies this year but The Shape of Water was definitely one of our favourites – The otherworldly fairy tale by Mexican director Guillermo del Toro winning Best Achievement in Directing, Best Achievement in Production Design, Best Original Score and Best Motion Picture of the Year. And Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were back to present this final award after last year’s Oscars!
Yes, we’ve made it to grand finale and what a wrap!
