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.
