Red Carpet Ready: The Best Looks of the 95th Academy Awards
The 95th Academy Awards are here, and Hollywood's biggest stars have stepped out onto the champagne-colored red carpet, a significant change from the usual shade of red. From Eva Longoria's shimmering frock to Cate Blanchett's art deco-inspired gown, see all the night's best show-stopping looks at the Oscars 2023!
Eva Longoria attended the event in a monochrome Giambattista Valli gown, featuring geometric patterns and embellished with clear crystals and white pearls. The plunging neckline featured a built-in choker strap that doubled as a shimmering necklace, while the sleeves were breezy though fastened at the wrists. The Art Deco-inspired design came together at the center of the skirt, which cascaded down to the carpet. Longoria accessorized with diamond rings and diamond flower-shaped cluster earrings by Chopard, and opted for a relaxed, gelled-back wavy ‘do and shimmery glam.
Ana de Armas also earned a nomination for her portrayal of Marilyn Monroe in the Netflix biopic Blonde. She looked like a princess in a beautiful Giambattista Valli gown paired with Chopard jewels.
At the Academy Awards on Sunday night, Sofia Carson (singer-actor) and Diane Warren (14-time Oscar-nominated songwriter) gave a live performance of their nominated song “Applause” from the film “Tell It Like a Woman”. Carson implored the female population globally to “give yourselves some applause” during the plain, direct rendition of the ballad. She was wearing a Valentino dress and shoes, along with Mikimoto jewelry.
The 41-year-old Chinese actress Fan Bingbing also made an appearance, wearing a luxurious black gown with a high slit and intricate beading. After her statement regarding her unpaid taxes, the actress took to Chinese site Weibo to apologize for her actions. She has since explained that the experience made her “calm down and think seriously about what I want to do in my future life.
