“Fashion Highlights from the 2023 Oscars Red Carpet”

The Oscars ceremony marks the culmination of Hollywood’s awards season, and as a result, the celebrities in attendance usually save their most impressive outfits for this event. On Sunday, the A-listers did not disappoint, with several trends emerging on the red carpet. These included an abundance of muted white, silver, and cream gowns, loose flowing hairstyles, dresses with trains, and a few striking pops of color. Here are some standout looks from the night:

Many of the stars opted for understated elegance, which was perfectly complemented by the champagne-colored red carpet. Michelle Yeoh, who won the Best Actress award for Everything Everywhere All at Once, looked stunning in a flowing white sleeveless Dior gown, complete with loose curls and a bejeweled headband. Jamie Lee Curtis, who won Best Supporting Actress for her role alongside Yeoh, looked chic in a glittering off-white Dolce & Gabbana column gown that highlighted her cropped white hair.

Presenter Florence Pugh, who has been known for her quirky fashion choices, pushed the boundaries in a voluminous Valentino gown that started off as a creamy taffeta top before transitioning to a revealing black miniskirt. Nobel peace laureate Malala Yousafzai, the executive producer of Oscar-nominated documentary short Stranger at the Gate, wore a stunning silver hooded Ralph Lauren gown that was cinched at the waist.

In terms of color, the Best Supporting Actress nominees brought a rainbow of hues to the red carpet. Angela Bassett looked regal in an amethyst Moschino gown with a bow neckline and a train, while Hong Chau exuded sophistication in a cotton candy pink sleeveless Prada gown with an unusual fringed black train. Stephanie Hsu, star of Everything Everywhere All at Once, looked charming in a strapless bubble gum pink Valentino number with a full ball skirt, and Kerry Condon lit up the carpet in a lemon yellow one-shoulder Versace gown.

Finally, the men of Hollywood stepped up their fashion game, with Harry Shum Jr. embracing his Asian heritage in a white dinner jacket with midnight piping and a belted sash. Austin Butler, nominated for his role in Elvis, looked dashing in a traditional Saint Laurent tuxedo fit for a king.
