The night is out! The fashion report on the Oscar’s Evening Wardrobe

More exciting than ever, this year’s Oscar ceremony seems to be the most glamour surprise of the season despite the social distancing and the, definably, more intimate dimension it carries. The heart of LA, as usual, the ceremony took place just few hours ago but its efforts, both in terms of style and elation, is going to be remembered for long.

A catwalk of bright colors, together with a sort of stage anxiety, is the real true main character of the night and we can all say, as spectators and

lovers, that this 93rd Academy Awards is the most promising pledge for social event restarting.

Many artists on the red carpet decide to wear a unique, Made in Italy piece; it is the case of the British actress Carrey Mulligan (The promising young woman, The great Gatsby) in Valentino Couture. The best actress nominee, in fact, opted for a metallic golden evening dress with a wide skirt and minimal bandeau top. The optic effect is assured: the effect is an enlarging escalation of proportions, the little seems even more little, the wide even wider, but it’s Oscar’s prerogative.

Then, another young star, Zendaya, decided to go for a Valentino yellow-fluo wrap dress. More like a mermaid than a star on the red carpet, the actress-singer seems to be perfectly aware of the wind effect of the robe…and she is not afraid to use it! The multi-layered garments will sufficiently avoid the Marylin Monroe effect. Later, Emerald Fennel decide for a Gucci flowered piece. The Promising Young Woman director is perfect in harmony with the surrounding atmosphere at the Oscar’s: the rebirth, the spring, the hope. Her picked dress seems to hold a speech for itself.

Also, the British actress Vanessa Kirby (The Crown, Pieces of a Woman) decided to wear a Gucci pastel pink gown, her porcelain skin-tone did the rest. Even if the dress may look too heavy for her slender figure, the train seems to be the “balancing” element for her unquestionable reaching-toward-the-sky allure. Additionally, Glenn Close, no presentation needed, broke the traditional dress code by wearing trousers under an Armani Privè. The pieces are a nocturnal blue embedded with black, pearl and electric blue jewelry: how to make a salwar kameez fits an Oscar’s night. Amanda Seyfried (Chloe, Mamma Mia) opted for a tulle red evening Armani gown as well. Far for the Close’s idea, the American actress wears effortlessly a huge masterpiece which carries some Old-Hollywood echoes. The bust ruffles, in total red, create a romantic effect on a bold, deep neckline. Lastly, Halle Berry wears a Dolce e Gabbana dress in powder pink with holographic effects on the borders. The outfit was completed by an eccentric sculpted bob which captured more than one disagreeable glaze. The dress itself seemed an idealistical fairy-tale and the major element, a wide bowl in the middle, covered the fit Berry’s body with concealment. As for the menswear, several actors opted for Made in Italy as well: it is the case of Riz Ahmed (The Road to Guantanamo, Britz) in Prada. The actor wore a total black tuxedo which did not looked too extreme: on the contrary the monochrome choice resulted in a modern, minimalist attire classy and fitting.

Leslie Odom Jr. (Rent, Dreamgirls), on the contrary, opted for a golden tux created by Versace. The star matched perfectly the golden statue with his suit, even if the choice of a black patent leather shoes underneath may be debatable. The last remarkable suit to be mentioned, should be the one worn by Colman Domingo (Euphoria, Candyman) and created as well by Versace.

The most noteworthy detail?
Of course, the shocking pink monochrome.
In fact, the actor adopted a sparkle shocking pink without fearing the overboard: extravagant but never exorbitant, that’s the golden rule of the 2021 Oscar’s Night.
