From Rihanna to Lady Gaga, here are the celebrities who showed up dressed to the nines for the big ceremony, rocking incredible outfits.
The 2023 Oscar Awards finally arrived in Los Angeles, California to celebrate and reward the best cinematic performances of the year. Held at the Dolby Theatre, celebrities brought their best sartorial game to the 95th annual Academy Awards. Among the A-star list were Rihanna and Austin Butler, accompanied by Kaia Gerber, Cara Delevingne, Michelle Yeoh, Cate Blanchett, Emily Blunt, Janelle Monáe, and many more. The gala was hosted by comedian Jimmy Kimmel in his third hosting experience. All were in charge of infusing energy and glamour to the Oscars 2023 red carpet with their looks.
Many of the stars chose designs that contrasted the traditional with the contemporary, resulting in totally fresh looks. Some others went for minimalist and angelic white tones, while others opted for drama and vibrant, bold colours. If anyone stole the spotlight throughout the ceremony, it was Cara Delevingne’s triumphant entrance. While most guests opted for black or white this year, Delevingne stood out in a deep, romantic red with an oversized rose detail on her shoulder. On the other hand, continuing with the floral embellishments, we had the iconic Nicole Kidman, who wore an Armani Prive design with two large rosettes on one shoulder and on the thigh accompanying the large opening of the dress. Everyone was in charge of an enviable parade of gowns and evening dresses.
In addition to the fashionable looks, the big moments of the award ceremony were also talked about. Pop queens Rihanna and Lady Gaga, nominated in the Best Original Song category, performed during the Oscar 2023 telecast. Everything Everywhere All At Once, which garnered 11 nominations and won seven, was the most nominated film this year.
