The stars descended onto the Dolby Theatre for the 94th Academy Awards on Sunday, bringing their A-game to the Oscars 2022 red carpet, and this time, it’s been hard to say who dressed the best. Check out the statement-making Oscar ensembles this year that are winning our hearts.
Nicole Kidman arrived at the Oscars 2022 for her nomination for playing Lucille Ball, in Being the Ricardos, and oh boy! she stunned in a Armani Prive gown, and makes it to our best dressed list, which brought in a lot of drama with it. The actress made her much-awaited entrance on the red carpet in a custom strapless gray-blue silk dress that featured a deep-V neckline and bedazzled train.
Sporting a bold red lip with her gorgeous “Nicole Kidman blue” dress, the star accessorized her look with Harry Winston jewelry consisting of a bold diamond statement necklace and matching diamond bracelets and earrings. Kidman said that Armani created an unusual shade for her after she told him she wanted to wear blue for the ceremony.
Kristen Stewart knows how to make heads turn. The 31-year-old actress, who got nominated for Best Actress for her role as Princess Diana in Spencer, looked absolutely radiant in a custom Chanel black satin jacket with matching shorts and a custom white chiffon blouse, which she wore almost all the way unbuttoned. She paired her chic ensemble with pointy black Chanel shoes.
What makes Stewart to our Oscars best dressed 2022 list is the fact that the actress elevated her ensemble by dripping in diamonds for the occasion. She accessorized her look with the Chanel Ganse Noirse Spinelle necklace in 18K white gold with onyx, spinel, and diamonds, the Chanel Lion ring in 18K white gold and diamonds, and Chanel’s “Première” mini watch in 18K white gold with diamonds.
Jada Pinkett Smith
Things got heated when Chris Rock took a dig at Jada Pinkett Smith, who struggles with alopecia, at the Oscars stage after he made a reference to Pinkett Smith’s shaved head, joking, “Jada, I love you. G.I. Jane 2, can’t wait to see it, all right?” That’s when Will Smith confronted him onstage.
However, Jada Pinkett Smith stole the limelight in a superfluous gown by Jean-Paul Gaultier in emerald green, which had a sea of ruffles. The gown featured a high neck, ruched bodice, drop waist, and statement ruffled skirt. To complete the look, Jada chose matching green peep-toe platforms and wore statement earrings.
Fashion industries darling, Zendaya looked absolutely flawless in a Maison Valentino two-piece set, ditching the usual gowns. Zendaya’s Oscars 2022 ensemble featured a creamy ivory satin crop top that struck the perfect balance with her long trailing sequinned silver skirt. She stacked up Bulgari jewelry to complement her look. For glam, the Dune actress opted for an icy make-up look and tied her hair in a low bun.
Timothee Chalamet gave the red carpet its biggest fashion moment by turning up to the 2022 Oscars sans-shirt. The “Dune” actor made up for the lack of a basic button-down by choosing a sequined, cropped jacket with lace trim by Louis Vuitton.
Best Actor nominee in a leading role for “Tick, Tick… Boom!”, Andrew Garfield looked dapper in a double-breasted Saint Laurent jacket in burgundy velvet, which he wore with a black shirt, bow tie, and tuxedo pants. A signet ring in 18-karat yellow gold and a watch by Omega completed Garfield’s look.
The No Time to Die star’s Prada mohair tuxedo with satin lapels was widely admired. But the key element of Rami Malek was his Cartier “pocket gem” — the name assigned by Cartier to the jeweled chain that adorns a jacket lapel — that everyone noticed. Malek also wore Cartier’s Tank Must watch and Santos de Cartier cufflinks in black lacquer and sterling silver.
