Yes, the films are essential, their contribution to culture irreplaceable. But let’s not kid ourselves here: One of the biggest draws of the Oscars is not the awards but the clothing—the shameless opulence in which Hollywood stars dress themselves as they applaud one another’s artistry. The Oscars provide a chance to wear the most legendary designers in one of the most legendary venues: Los Angeles’s Dolby Theatre.
Some of the biggest moments in the annals of fashion took place on the Academy Awards red carpet, and tonight, during 2022’s Academy Awards, the celebs clearly yearned to make history again. Only time will tell if tonight’s gowns will have the staying power of, say, Gwyneth Paltrow’s bubblegum taffeta dress of 1999, but never say never. After multiple awards shows darkened by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, tonight’s wardrobe brought a welcome dose of radiance. Ahead, you’ll find all the looks of the evening, from Laverne Cox’s gorgeous all-black look to Rachel Zegler’s Dior dress.
