The 92nd Academy Awards have been and gone, and as expected, we were treated to some genuinely jaw-dropping looks on the red carpet. Some people had a message to spread, others went down the sustainable route, and then there were those who just looked plain fabulous. Here are our top picks for the best dressed stars at the Oscars 2020.
Actress Natalie Portman has never been afraid to speak out against injustices, especially at big awards ceremonies. This year was no different when she strutted down the red carpet in this gorgeous black and gold Dior Haute Couture ensemble. At first glance, it just looks beautiful… But there was a little secret in her cape. Embroided in gold lettering were the surnames of all the female directors who were snubbed at this year’s Academy Awards.
Just a week after she boycotted the BAFTAs due to a lack of nomination diversity, Cynthia Erivo turned up at the Oscars dazzling in white. People were unsure whether she would turn up to the 92nd Academy Awards after snubbing the BAFTAs, but the Best Actress nominee was keen to turn heads in her custom atelier gown.
Actress and comedy genius Rebel Wilson was keen to bedazzle everyone with her glittery golden gown at the Oscars 2020. In fact, she looked like an Academy Award herself! Her Jason Wu dress was finished off with Hollywood waves and red lipstick – a classic Golden Age of Hollywood look.
Special Mention: Billy Porter
Can we put together a best dressed stars list and not include Billy Porter? The actor is known for making a statement on the red carpet, and it looks like he’s saved the best for last this award’s season. The dazzling gold gown is believed to be inspired by Kensington Palace and the Royals. After last year’s tux dress, we knew Porter would pull something head-turning out of the bag!
These are just a few of our top picks for the best dressed stars at the Oscars 2020, but who deserves the crown? We think Portman’s best director shade wins it for us!
