Best of the Academy Awards 2020

Lots of good stuff this year. Plenty of color, plenty of sparkle, plenty of interesting and unexpected choices. Round ’em up!

Sigourney Weaver in Dior

Wow, this is her color. I love how the silhouette drapes over her body and how the shape and color of her hair balances out everything. If Sigourney’s hair had been a shade darker, it wouldn’t have worked quite as perfectly. She looks incredible. And I love how this is kind of what I feel Scarlet O’Hara probably envisioned for her gown made out of those dusty curtains, but actualized.

Regina King in custom Versace

I have loved seeing more and more of this silhouette with a full skirt that opens up to reveal either a column dress or pants (see Daisy Ridley’s London premiere look for The Rise of Skywalker). It’s fun and very old Hollywood glamorous, with beading details that give a deco feeling. Love the shade of pink on Regina, too. I’m not sure about how her hair is styled but I can’t find a picture of it from every angle, so it’s hard to judge.

Emilia Clarke in Versace

I swore we already saw Emilia in this exact same look – no really, I thought this was a mistake and this was her from a couple years ago – but nope, this is her today. And I like it! Her skin is so cool that she can do this icy lilac shade very well. And I just love glittery things.

Janelle Monae in Ralph Lauren

I mean, you kinda can’t not like this. It’s meant to be a fantasy. Also, it looks comfortable! And it belongs in a space movie, or some modernized version of Metropolis. And I’m hearing rumors of 600 hours of hand embroidery?!

Cynthia Erivo in Atelier Versace

Okay so Versace is apparently dominating tonight. I feel like I always end up picking Armani stuff as my faves, but not this time around. I loooooooove this. Her hair, her manicure and jewelry details, it all works perfectly.

Sandra Oh in Elie Saab

Too much in all the right ways. Again, a fantasy. Again, sparkles. And literal clouds of tulle.

Natalie Portman in Dior

You’re going to have to peep a closer look at the embroidery on her cape. I’ll just say that much. Beyond that, I LOVE her bob and I love the embroidery detail on the gown.
