The Academy Awards have always been known as the massive gala night where celebs break norms of fashion excellence and step on the red carpet with the aim to stun onlookers. And seems like two revered actresses of Hollywood have managed to both slay and awe with their bold and glam fashion statements- Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman.
Scarlett Johansson sets the red carpet on fire as she dials sexy up way too high!
This year, Scarlett Johansson not only got nominated to the Oscars for the first time but is also one of the rare double nominees. So, it was only expected for the actress to turn up in her absolute best and she so did not disappoint. Scarlett Johansson turned up at Oscars 2020 in sheer silver, fishnet bodice custom made Oscar de la Renta gown with a liquid skirt and exposed corset. Complementing the glam ensemble are a romantic updo and $2.1 million earrings by Forevermark.
She graced the red carpet with her fiancé Colin Jost who wore a traditional black tuxedo with a TAG Heuer Monaco Calibre watch.
Natalie Portman walked the red carpet, wearing a cape that paid tribute to all the snubbed female directors
Like every time, Oscars 2020’s list of nominees in the directing category is once again all-male. It includes Martin Scorsese (The Irishman), Quentin Tarantino (Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood), Todd Phillips (Joker), Sam Mendes (1917), and Bong Joon Ho (Parasite).
Calling out this continued partiality, actress Natalie Portman honored the snubbed female filmmakers by having their last names embroidered on the cape of her Dior Haute Couture ensemble- Lorene Scafaria (Hustlers), Lulu Wang (The Farewell), Greta Gerwig (Little Women), Mati Diop (Atlantics), Marielle Heller (A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood), Melina Matsoukas (Queen & Slim), Alma Har’el (Honey Boy) and Céline Sciamma (Portrait of a Lady on Fire).
In the past too, Portman has called out the gender inequality owing to the lack of female representation in the Best Director category at the Oscars 2 years ago when she presented the best director category by commenting “And here are the all-male nominees.” This year, Insecure creator Issa Rae picked a leaf out of Portman’s book and announced the Oscars 2020’s nominees by saying, “Congratulations to those men”.
