Fashion - February 10, 2020


The Oscars 2020 just ended and like every year we are here to report everything that happened. First things firsts: let’s talk about cinema. The awards for this year were certainly nothing new, everything went as expected and some of the actors and films that we loved most this year triumphed on the red carpet of the Dolby Theater. The Oscar for Actor in a Leading Role went to Joaquin Phoenix for his superb portrayal of Joker in the film by Todd Phillips, Laura Dern was instead awarded the Best Supporting Actress in Marriage Story, outperforming the protagonist Scarlett Johansson that this year collected two nominations. Great revelations instead two actors we have in our hearts: the incredible Renee Zellweger who won the Oscar for Best Actress in Judy and, drum roll, Brad Pitt who finally won his first Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in Once Upon A Time in Hollywood.

But let’s get to the most feared part of every red carpet: the report cards. The looks of the Oscars, together with those of the Met Gala, are always the most anticipated, but this year the password has unfortunately been one: boredom. No eccentric Valentino or extravagant Simon Rocha, the actresses have worn the classic outfits that are worn at social events “to avoid mistakes”, opting all for traditional palettes: white or black. Restoring sacredness to the cinema by dressing in too formal ways was not a successful intent, celebs could dare more with colours and shapes, on an occasion when creativity is the needle of the balance. Beautiful Renee Zellweger in her Giorgio Armani mermaid dress, but with a newfound physical form so why not at least dare with other shades? The same goes for the very young Margot Robbie who opted for a Chanel dress that looks anything but Chanel; do we want to talk about Charlize Theron? She too took part in the procession of the timeless black, perhaps more suitable for male than female looks (if not for some exceptions). Even men did not challenge fashion with any Gucci or Saint Laurent look but opted for the most classic of tuxedos with radical chic flashes like the Prada look chosen by Timothée Chalamet.

To revive the funeral of fashion on the red carpet, the Vanity Fair After Party has thought of it with at least some guessed looks, so the celebs have tried to dare more, reached by some of the fashion icons that we have in our hearts. Hailey Bieber, extraordinarily without her husband Justin, made her entrance into a wonderful Versace look as if to demonstrate that: black yes…but make it glam. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West could give emotions but unfortunately, he abandoned the tracksuits (finally) to choose an Alfred Dunhill leather suit that was arguably adequate; she wanted to give us confirmation again of her hourglass body with an Alexander McQueen dress that didn’t exactly do it justice. For every unsuccessful look, however, there is at least a wow one: Charlize Theron has recovered from the red carpet with an Haute Couture Dior SS 20 dress that brought her back to the time of J’Adore, while our Chiara Ferragni softened the tones with an ode to spring in a Philosophy dress by Lorenzo Serafini. Bad Emily Ratajkowski: we know that you have terrific abs but perhaps you could aspire to something better than a beach suit, at least as far as the pattern is concerned. Ok, Kylie Jenner in Ralph and Russo, hourglass as usual but very chic. Scarlett Johansson? Pretty … but for a bombshell like her, an Elie Saab or Zuhair Murad would have made exclaim wow! Instead, Candice Swanepoel followed the advice, who triumphed with her Murad look in cerulean palette and contrast of sublime textures and shapes.
