Oscars 2023: Best and worst-dressed celebrities
As every year, the red carpet is a real festival of stylish and fashionable outfits of the stars of the world show business. In fact, the color of the dramatic red carpet has been changed to champagne this year, with the shade expected to help all the celebrities stand out better with their outfits. Did it happen for everyone? Let’s find out!
The most outstanding dresses
We’ll start with the celebrities’ most outstanding dresses. Luckily, they are many, and we were able to enjoy a real feast of fashion, which pleases the eye and gives us all a lot of guidance on how to look stunning for different formal occasions!
Model Cara Delevingne turned heads at the 95th annual Academy Awards. She looked stunning in an ethereal red floor-length gown by Elie Saab. She is certainly proof that when you stick to the classics, you can’t go wrong!
Rihanna continues to pleasantly surprise us with the fashion decisions she makes. At the Oscars 2023, she wore a black fitted gown with leather details which make her look absolutely beautiful and sexy at the same time, accentuating her pregnant belly.
The 60-year-old Michelle Yeoh, star of the film “Everything Everywhere All at Once”, is the first Asian woman to win the Academy Award for Best Actress. She appeared in a fabulous snow-white Dior gown with fringe from top to bottom.
Angela Bassett, who was nominated Best Supporting Actress, pleasantly surprised everyone in a Moschino gown. The bright purple long dress with trumpet silhouette and sheer neckline caught everyone’s eyes!
The always elegant-looking Cate Blanchett once again proved that she has incredible taste when it comes to outfits. She was definitely one of the best dressed women at the ceremony in her black maxi dress with a turquoise top that highlighted her shoulders perfectly.
Jamie Lee Curtis
Jamie Lee Curtis, who received the statuette for Best Supporting Actress, chose a long Dolce & Gabbana gown embellished with silver sequins. The actress also commented on the new champagne color of the carpet (which we think her outfit fitted perfectly). “Apparently, at the Academy Oscars, their carpet is going to match my drapes,” the actress wrote on her social media accounts.
Some not so appropriate outfits according to fashion critics
We continue with some not-so-stunning outfits, we would say inappropriate for a ceremony like the Oscars. Sometimes an army of stylists isn’t enough to avoid a fashion faux pas. Whether it’s the change of carpet color that makes some outfits pale and not stand out, or the reason lies somewhere else, we leave it to you to decide!
Halle Berry, who has repeatedly been among the most elegantly dressed stars at formal events, this time sparked controversial comments about her choice of dress for the 95th Academy Awards. The pleasant white color paired with some amazing gold roses were overshadowed by the too-high slit, which according to some clearly crossed the line between elegant and gaudy.
Actress Rooney Mara chose a neutral evening long dress for the 2023 Oscars. The dress is great, but is it right for her? What do you think? The cut doesn’t suit her figure at all. What is more, the neutral color made her look even paler, which definitely didn’t do her a favor.
Jessie Buckley’s outfit choice for the Oscars 2023 can simply be described as ”everything, everywhere, all at once”. The actress chose both ethnic and floral motifs, as well as fringe, sequins and sheer dark fabric in one. This combined with the bright color of her hair, managed to baffle many of the attendees and those in front of the screen.
For some, Kate Hudson’s look seems too casual for such a formal event. The large glittery sequins don’t create a soft, elegant look. The unconventional choice of sleeves makes the outfit look even more inappropriate. In this case, the dress should have been a little more formal.
