The Oscars 2021 red carpet offered a ripe moment for celebrities to make a style statement. While the Golden Globes showed the nominees at their homes, and The Met Gala, another big fashion event, been pushed to September, one of Hollywood’s biggest nights amid the global pandemic didn’t disappoint. Some of the big stars turned in person for the Oscars 2021 red carpet with their fashion prowess on point.
On every nominee’s mind at the Oscars is taking home one of those little gold men. But the stars went a little further in manifesting their dream by actually dressing like an Oscar on the red carpet. Bringing the biggest trends of the season to the red carpet, if we may say so, the stars looked resplendent in gold attires. Check out who wore what from head to toe twinning with the little gold man.
Looking like a dream, Carey Mulligan arrived on the Oscars 2021 red carpet in a gold strapless Valentino Haute Couture crop top and skirt, covered in thousands of sequins and Cartier jewelry. The Promising Young Women actor’s breathtaking look, which gave off modern princess vibes, comprised of a sleek ‘do and Sophia Webster heels.
While we’ve seen gold ensembles at the Academy Awards before, Carey Mulligan definitely stole the show this year.
Bringing yet another jaw-dropping ensemble to the awards nights, Andra Day’s form-fitting gold lamé dress by Vera Wang and Tiffany & Co. Jewelry made for a powerful and sensual attire. The dress featured a leggy display and defined her waist. The singer brought in her electric energy by completing her look with a gold box clutch and strappy gold high heels.
Supermodel Paulina Porizkova, 56, not only brought a dazzling gold number to the Oscars 2021 red carpet, she also made her relationship with Aaron Sorkin red carpet official!
The Dancing With the Stars alum wore a mermaid-fitted gold gown and accessorized it with dangling earrings and a green clutch. She left her shoulder-length hair loose in wavy curls.
If you thought only the ladies glittered in gold, then wait for the men taking on the gold trend as well.
Travon Free & Martin Desmond Roe
Making a powerful statement on the Oscars 2021 red carpet, the 36-year-old writer and performer wore a Dolce & Gabbana suit lined with the names of those killed by police brutality in the United States.
Joining him was and his “Two Distant Strangers” co-director, Martin Desmond Roe, who also wore a black blazer with gold lapels, gold bow-tie, and matching trousers.
Taking the gold fashion to a whole new level, musician Questlove, the show’s musical director, wore gold Crocs to the ceremony stirring up some fun fashion commentary on social media.
The musician arrived on the red carpet in a dark suit complete with a sleek blazer, but the painted number added a touch of unexpected glamour to the outfit.
While the Academy Awards’ producers sent nominees a memo before the ceremony: “You’re wondering about the Dress Code (as well you should). We’re aiming for a fusion of Inspirational and Aspirational, which in actual words means formal is totally cool if you want to go there, but casual is really not.” Questlove’s choice of metallic Crocs takes that idea and turns it into an ensemble to remember.
Leslie Odom Jr.
Nominated for two Oscars in the Best Supporting Actor and Best Original Song (“Speak Now”) categories for his work in One Night In Miami, Leslie also took inspiration from the Oscars statuette and wore a head-to-toe gold Brioni tuxedo teamed with black loafers.
