Before I get a chance to start the full Vanity Fair Oscar Party coverage – there are a LOT of looks to go through – and read all your comments, here’s a final sweep of the 2020 Oscars which took place on Sunday (February 9) in LA.
Lily Aldridge: The model wore Ralph Lauren Spring 2013, beautifully draped gown. Simple elegance is very much her red carpet M.O., so I’m glad she kept the red corsage, as it enable her to go bold with the lip colour. Lily was of course styled with Bvglari jewels.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus: There was many great looks, but Julia in Vera Wang made me gasp. That colour, the fit. She looked so sleek and sexy. I would say was a personal best for Julia.
Salma Hayek Pinault: As you know I’m always Team Salma. I do adore this custom Gucci white one shoulder gown with draping on the bodice and sleeve. It was so very flattering, but the hair and accessories felt a little cheesy to me. With the crystal strap and earrings, I don’t feel she needed the hair accessory and cuff. Less should’ve been more.
Julia Butters: The 10-year-old ‘Once Upon a Time In Hollywood’ actress is a future fashionista in the making, as she sent a sketch of what she wanted to wear to the Oscars to Christian Siriano, and he happily obliged by creating this pink tulle gown. I think back to my 10 year old shelf, and I know that I would’ve done the absolutely most with a 10 foot long train and so many sequins that I would be barely able to walk in the dress. The look was styled with Christian Louboutin ‘Nosy Flat’ silver glitter and PVC point toe flats, Lark & Berry jewelry and a pretty pink embellished clutch bag.
Chrissy Metz: Christian Siriano also created a stunning red, beautiful draped gown for the gorgeous Chrissy Metz.
Olivia Colman: Following her Stella McCartney Vanity Fair Oscar Party dress from last year, I’m surprised that ‘The Crown’ actress even considered allowing Stella to have a second chance, but credit where credit is due, this dress – and it reoccurring waist enhancing panels – were an improvement from last year. I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it either. The actress brought Conscious Luxury to the red carpet wearing bespoke Atelier Swarovski Fine Jewelry made with Swarovski created diamonds and emeralds. A Jimmy Choo clutch and newly blonde pixie cut completed her look.
Margaret Qualley: In Chanel Fall 2019 Haute Couture. Styled with Chanel Fine Jewelry.
Idina Menzel: Am I the only one wishing that Idina had opted for the lighter pink version of this J. Mendel Spring 2020 gown?
Maya Rudolph: This orange sequin Valentino dress from the Spring 2020 collection is beautiful. But I wish Maya had made it feel less like a shiny sack. With the dress and sandals, I get what she was going for – laid-back, I just threw this on elegance – but it didn’t work for me. Lorraine Schwartz emerald and diamond jewels completed her look.
Rebel Wilson: The actress was glowing in Jason Wu styled with Pomellato jewelry.
Molly Sims: While I’m not the biggest fan of the pointy shoulders, this Zuhair Murad Spring 2020 Couture was still a beautiful creation. I love the floor sweeping overskirt and thigh-high ‘shenti’ style slit. Christian Louboutin ‘Galativi Strass’ nude suede and mesh pump with crystal detail completed her look.
