After much controversy, the 91st Academy Awards have arrived, sans host, but the unconventional nature of the ceremony didn’t stop a flood of stately styles on the red carpet. Stars like Glenn Close, Best Actress nominee for The Wife, brought the drama in a gilded cape-and-gown combination, while Helen Mirren dazzled in a multi-colored pink dress that delighted her so much she couldn’t stop twirling for the cameras.
Stars of last year’s breakout hit, Crazy Rich Asians, Gemma Chan, Constance Wu, and Michelle Yeoh brought the glamour in major volumes, vibrant colors, and elaborate embellishment, while our favorite power throuple, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Maya Rudolph mixed the masculine and feminine.
Meanwhile, all eyes were on Lady Gaga, who has really upped her red carpet game lately, and she didn’t disappoint. A chic Alexander McQueen gown with a fitted bodice and structured hip was the perfect accompaniment to her ridiculously expensive necklace.
