With events being rescheduled or canceled, many were unsure if we’d get an in-person academy awards ceremony this year. Originally set to take place in February, the Academy had postponed the Oscars for two months amid the pandemic. The Academy then announced in March that they would be holding the ceremony in two different locations this year: the Dolby Theater in New York and Los Angeles’s Union Station.
After implementing safety precautions, the event finally took place on April 25, and we watched as celebrities serve the best looks possible. After a year of wearing sweatpants and taking time off, these stars — and their designers — were seriously fighting for best-dressed of the night.
Here are some of VALLEY’s favorite looks of the night.
Starting off strong, we have Margot Robbie killing the game wearing Chanel Haute Couture and Chanel Fine Jewelry on the Red Carpet. Not only is her outfit stunning but Robbie’s new hair is seriously making us consider doing a little chop. We definitely don’t recommend doing a little DIY haircut — as we all know how that usually ends.
Carey Mulligan brought us a modern version of Belle from “Beauty and the Beast” vibes with this stunning glittery yellow Valentino gown. The cut out between the top and bottom of the dress is a moment and we’re here for it.
Dolce & Gabbana really went all out with this one! Halle Berry showed up at the red carpet wearing a custom-made, fuchsia-colored gown with a sweetheart neckline and a bow sitting perfectly at the waistline. The chiffon material allowed it to flow and Berry took full advantage of that!
We just can’t get enough of this look. The Dundas jumpsuit, the hair, the glasses — everything is perfectly in tune with this look and the singer definitely has all eyes on her. The sheer beaded blue jumpsuit paired with a train and even a hood is simply stunning.
Women in suits – that’s all. Tiara Thomas popped off in this all-white monochromatic ensemble with a plunging neckline and feathered detail on the suit jacket by Jovana Louis is everything. The all-diamond bolo tie was also a perfect touch.
We’ve only ever seen this Versace dress in our dreams. The pink corset, strappy top and sheer lower half of her stress allowed for a leg moment. Cooke is definitely taking the 20s Gatsby-type look and making it her own!
This all-pink suit was another monochromatic look we loved at the Oscars. Colman Domingo looked incredible in the Atelier Versace suit with pink gem detailing on the shoulders, sleeves and tie. The gold detailing and jewelry ties it all together making it one of our favorites from the night.
A classic Brad Pitt look with a sleek black suit and bowtie, he always looks expensive and polished. We’re also seeing another gold jewelry moment here that we love!
We’re not getting over this fit any time soon. The pink and black gown with a deep-v neckline and a cinched-waist designed by Christian Siriano looked stunning on Cox. Her hair and makeup pulled everything together and have us in awe.
This one might be the winner of the night. Zendaya is always stopping the show with her outfit, hair and makeup — she’s a triple threat in more ways than one. The Euphoria actress wore a neon yellow Valentino Couture dress paired with gorgeous Bulgari necklaces — which amounted to over six million in diamonds. With inspiration stemming from Cher, her style only matched her brilliance
