This year, the red carpet was unequivocally dominated by black and white, metallic shades, Chanel and Dior and also Sigourney Weaver, who showed everyone that she does not, as people like to say, belong on the scrap heap just yet! How did the new Oscar winner Renée Zellweger, Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, Penélope Cruz, Margot Robbie, Gal Gadot, Janelle Monáe, Kristen Wiig, eccentric performer Billie Porter or singer Billie Eilish approach the dresscode? Fashion Upstream takes a look at that!
When we saw the actress Sigourney Weaver, who's just celebrated her 70th birthday last October on the red carpet, our jaws literally dropped! She looked absolutely stunning in the green Dior dress and easily overshadowed even decades younger colleagues.
It was impossible to overlook singer Janelle Monáe in her sparkling dress by Ralph Lauren. We've totally fallen in love with the gown and if anyone wanted to protest and say that it may be a little much, we have only one thing to say: No, it's damn awesome!
Natalie Portman would look amazing even if she put on a potato sack. The Israeli-American actress has enough charisma to go around and she looked stunning in a luxurious black and gold dress by Dior and decorated with Cartier jewelry.
The beautiful actress Penélope Cruz bet on Chanel and it was the right choice. She looked gorgeous in the satin dress decorated with a pearl belt and a flower. We must also praise the choice of atypical pumps that go with the dress perfectly.
The actress representing the popular comic character Harley Quinn bet on Chanel, much like Penélope. In her black flowing dress with a luxurious brooch, she looked as if she'd jumped out of a Turkish soap opera.
The Academy Award winner bet on minimalism in the form of a white dress by Armani Privé. In the one shoulder dress she showed off a muscular arm and had left jewelry at home this time. And that's good, because the dress is quite bold all on its own due to its shine and the massive ring is more than enough.
We consider Scarlett rather unlucky because she keeps choosing unfitting dresses for award ceremonies. The model by Oscar de la Renta, albeit beautiful on its own, is no exception. It's gorgeous from the waist down, the train is simply amazing, but we don't like the chest area at all and once again it looks like something's sticking out there and doesn't fit... Maybe it'd be good to look for a different stylist?
Actress Kristen Wiig looked like she'd just run off from a craft class where she'd been teaching kids how to put together something to wear. The red dress would be fine on its own, if it didn't have those crazy frills on the sides. The situation could not be helped even by the Christian Louboutin shoes, which, let's be honest, weren't the best choice other, or the oddly scrunched up skin on her sides - well, one cannot stop time!
It wouldn't be an award ceremony without the well-known performer Billy Porter. This time he bet on royal gold and wore a model by Deacon Couture and Swarowski jewelry. Isn't this guy to die for?!
Not all Chanel is equal... Singer Billie Eilish reminds us of Avril Lavigne, who also did whatever she could to be considered a bad girl. The question is, how long can the American rebel keep it up. She was definitely less than stellar on the red carpet!
It's been a while since I've seen such a wide variety of dress choices on the red carpet! And excuuuse me, what kinda beauty pills does Sigourney Weaver take?! I want that too! I won't look as good as her even at fifty, let alone seventy. This is seriously unbelievable. On top of that, not only does she look better than Penélope Cruz, for example, who probably went to the Oscars straight from a Corpse Bride audition and leaves the impression that she's ten years older than she actually is, but Sigourney's also wearing one of my favorite colors. The green really fits her! She totally took my breath away! Dior, Dior, why isn't she the face of your brand yet?
I've already touched on her a little bit. I might be biased, because I've never liked the looks of this actress, but she just looks sad and a bit old in this dress. Sorry, girl. Like okay, it might be Chanel, but this isn't really doing it for me!
I get that many of us ask ourselves what kinda crazy person this is when looking at his outfits. Is it overkill? It is! But people like Penélope should use him as an example to not be afraid to be a little bit more daring. I'm not saying that she should dress up as a golden bird with a big skirt like Billy did here, but she could use something bolder.
This beauty's looking stunning! What I like about Scarlett is that she's a girl with boobs, a curvy waist and hips and she knows how to sell it! The dress revealing her chest fits her and the delicate silver has turned her into an ethereal fairy in a spiderweb, which is a nice change for me, since she mostly scores roles that tend to be sexy, or when it comes to Marvel movies, badass women. I definitely disagree with my colleague Martina who says that the bottom half is better than the top one! For me it's the exact opposite. The top is just perfect!
