Vanessa Hudgens and Laverne Cox are some of the first celebrities to arrive at the event.
27 March 2022
Early arrivals have started trickling along the red carpet for the 94th Academy Awards, and one overwhelming trend is already emerging.
Stars are all about dark, gothic-inspired outfits – the bigger, the better…
The best part of Laverne Cox’s outfit is the architectural silhouette, with exaggerated hips, an asymmetric neckline and a fishtail train trailing along the floor. She set off the dramatic black gown by August Getty with a statement shawl.
Vanessa Hudgens amps up the sex appeal in a slinky black sequinned Michael Kors dress – bang on trend with cut-outs and a knock-out diamond and emerald Bulgari necklace.
If you’re going to pull out all the stops, the Oscars is the place to do it – and Sofia Carson did so in a voluminous tulle gown from Giambattista Valli’s couture collection.
A trend already seems to be emerging for dramatic black gowns – and Maddie Ziegler walked her first Oscars red carpet dressed in all-black, her outfit set off by sparkling Swarovski jewels.
Taking a risk on the red carpet is internet personality Rickey Thompson, wearing black trousers, a super crop top with a cape, and his bare chest bedazzled to look like sparkling ribs.
While not technically black, Jamie Lee Curtis’ sparkling midnight blue makes a statement – particularly as she holds up a blue ribbon in support of those affected by the war in Ukraine.
