See who impressed us with their fashion on Hollywood’s big night and were considered as fashion royalty.

The biggest night of awards season finally arrived on Sunday and the crème de la crème of Hollywood flocked to the Dolby Theatre for the 2023 Oscars, bringing glitz and glamour with them. While this year’s red carpet was instead champagne-coloured, it was still one of fashion’s biggest nights – it certainly has one of the most eye-watering goodie bags valued at over $100k! The 2023 Oscars encouraged a more sustainable approach to style, but there were still elaborate designs, figure-hugging silhouettes, provocative glimpses of skin, and some surprises along the way.

Hollywood’s biggest stars, nominees, presenters, and the rest of the movie glitterati turned out for the evening, and the red carpet did not disappoint. The A-list guests wore their finest for the ceremony, playing the park of woke Hollywood stars with their ensemble’s choices. Fabulous gowns, trains, high-octane ball gowns aplenty, show-stopping sequins dress galore, and plenty of black, white, and bold colours appeared to be this year’s big style trend. Florence Pugh rocked black shorts with a dramatic cape, looking like a punk princess, while popstar Rihanna, who was nominated for the original song for “Lift Me Up,” from “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”, arrived at the Oscars wearing an all-black Alaia look, which left us speechless. From Nicole Kidman to Lady Gaga, here are the best dresses, gowns, and ensembles from the 2023 Annual Academy Awards red carpet.


Cara Delevingne stunned in a vibrant red gown by Elie Saab at the Oscars. The one-shoulder garment featured a daring thigh-high slit. A large statement bow accentuated the gown’s ruched bodice. The model and actress wore satin platform peep-toe pumps by Stuart Weitzman, which were also in a bright scarlet shade. Bulgari created Delevingne’s diamond jewellery set, which included a choker, earrings, and bracelet in the brand’s signature Serpenti style. She also wore an emerald cocktail ring by the luxury label.

After an internet-breaking Super Bowl Halftime Show – and subsequent pregnancy announcement – Rihanna is blessing us with another live performance and a fashionable public appearance. Rihanna and her very special plus one just arrived on the 2023 Oscar red carpet in a look so good that it has single-handedly redefined maternity fashion. Rihanna wore a black Alaia creation that included a bandeau top, sheer underlayer with long sleeves, and low-rise draped leather skirt. She wore her hair up in a messy bun and added drop earrings and dramatic red lipstick to finish the look.



Global brand ambassador of Louis vuitton, Deepika Padukone made her Oscars debut this evening. The Indian actress, who is set to present this evening, looked glamorous in a bespoke Louis Vuitton black gown and a Cartier necklace, an ensemble which looked elegant against the champagne-coloured carpet. Padukone completed her outfit with black opera gloves, a very trendy style-even royals like Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales, have recently leaned into the accessory. She wore a diamond bracelet and ring over one of the gloves. The yellow diamond Cartier necklace makes sense for the star, as she became a Cartier ambassador this past fall.

Salma Hayek arrived at the 95th Annual Academy Awards, looking extremely gorgeous. Salma looked gorgeous in her shimmering orange Gucci dress that featured a subtle fishtail, a nipped-in waist, and a halterneck design that highlighted her chest.

The “Joker: Folie à Deux” actress left everyone’s jaws on the floor when she showed up in this sheer, drop-waist gown from Versace. Her dress also included mesh along her bodice and down the sleeves. The gown had an all-black skirt that puffed out at the bottom and included Versace’s signature Medusa medallion at the waist, matching the larger choker.

Lady Gaga


Florence Pugh went for a gorgeous and traditional dress black shorts and gown by Valentino Couture. She completed her look with Tiffany jewellery, including two Soleste rings, platinum earrings with pink tourmalines and diamonds, and a matching necklace. She also wore black platform sandals.

The “Eyes of Tammy Faye” star proved she’s just as stunning in real life, wearing a stunning floor-length lavender gown by Gucci. She paired the look with statement earrings, a number of rings, and a shimmering makeup look.
