The 93rd Academy Awards – Best Dressed

I can’t believe we’ve made it to the 93rd Academy Awards! After everything we’ve been through, it was so lovely to sit back and enjoy The Oscars. I am also so relieved to see that the Red-Carpet fashion is also returning! Nature is healing! Join me as I break down my favorite looks of the night and crown the Best Dressed of the 93rd Academy Awards!

Carey Mulligan

I’ll be honest, I can’t think of a time I have ever seen Carey Mulligan on The Oscars red carpet, but what a brilliant entrance. Carey shined in a gold Valentino Haute Couture gown, and I was captivated the moment she stepped onto that red carpet. One of my favorites of the night!

Regina King

Whenever someone asked me about my best-dressed predictions for the red carpet, I always said it would be Regina King. I hate to say it, but I might have been right! Regina showed up to this year’s awards in a beautiful, custom blue Louis Vuitton gown with winged shoulders lined in silver. Regina is a master of the red carpet, one of my favorites of the night.

Amanda Seyfried

I am in love! Amanda Seyfried graced the red carpet in a sickening Armani Privé gown. The shape of this gown is just incredible. The neckline is just so right, and the fit of this gown is just exceptional. 

Coleman Domingo

By far my favorite suit of the night! Coleman Domino rocked this pink Versace suit. In recent years, pink suiting on men has been this new trend that I am absolutely in love with, and Coleman has only added to this fire within me.

Viola Davis

Surprising to no one, Viola Davis dominated the red carpet in a white Alexander Mcqueen gown. I love the fantastic cut-outs that blend into the drape of the gown. Viola looks incredible!

Maria Bakalova

Maria Bakalova showed up to the Oscars in a classic Hollywood silhouette. This v-neckline matched with this large tulle skirt is perfect with the matching necklace. While this look isn’t anything new, it’s expertly executed and deserves its praise!

Zendaya

Another day, another slay. Zendaya brought this red carpet to its knees as she graced The Oscars in this yellow Valentino Haute Couture dress. Zendaya looked terrific; I don’t even have words. I love the shape of the bodice with the perfect necklace.

Angela Bassett

I think it is safe to say I have had Angela Bassett on every Best Dressed list I have ever done, and it’s for a good reason. Angela shut the red carpet down, wearing this red gown in exaggerated, puffed sleeves with a perfect slit in the front. I love this classic silhouette. We have seen this shape on Angela before, but that’s because it’s perfect for her. All hail the queen. 

Trish Summerville

For a long time, I have waited for Trish Summerville’s time on the Oscars Red Carpet, and it was well worth the wait. Costume Designer Trish Summerville stunned in a black and white gown with a strong shoulder. I love the fabric and textile of this gown. Trish, you deserve this moment, and I am so happy for you!

Best Dressed

This choice was so simple, which is rare for me. Regina King was obviously tonight’s best dressed, and honestly, no one should be shocked. Regina absolutely killed it! Congratulations Regina! Thank you, everyone, for reading along. If you agreed with my picks for the Best Dressed of the 93rd Academy Awards, let me know in the comments below! I want to know who wore your favorite looks.

After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising with a degree in Fashion Design, Spencer realized that his love for fashion was not entirely found on a runway, but seen on screen through film and television. As a Los Angeles event planner, Spencer began to organize panels of costume designers benefiting students who were fascinated by costume design. As Spencer’s connections within the costume design field began to grow, so did his love for the craft. Then in 2019, Spencer decided it was time to share his love for costume design on an international level and launched The Art of Costume.
