Jada Pinkett Smith stunned and Amy Schumer stumbled among disappointing Oscars red carpet looks – The Cavalier Daily

The Oscars red carpet is an opportunity for screen stars to dress in their best looks to embody the elegance of this historically glamorous event. On this year’s red carpet, many stars opted to play it safe and wore overall bland and uninspired looks.

When it came to wearing mundane looks, actress Zoë Kravitz was one of those stars as she wore Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent. In a boring pink column dress with a simple bow at the top – a Saint Laurent signature – Kravitz seemed to usher in the plethora of jaded looks that have walked the red carpet. Although the carpet was bogged down by uninteresting looks — like Zoe Kravitz’s — some stars were able to rise above the pack, while others fell.

Actress Jada Pinkett Smith proved she could embody traditional Oscars glamour, as she shone in a ruched emerald dress by Glenn Martens for Jean Paul Gaultier’s Spring and Summer 2022 collection. The ensemble also featured a militaristic-looking collar and a form-fitting bodice anchored by a voluminous skirt to accentuate the sense of drama. Smith stole the night in this garment, clearly demonstrating her penchant for serving up a high fashion look.

Rapper Megan Thee Stallion arrived in a beautiful slinky blue dress by Indian designer Gaurav Gupta. This look was reminiscent of the surrealism that resonates throughout Dutch designer Iris van Herpen. to work. Megan appeared to be floating on the carpet with a train that featured exaggerated circular frills that glided over her body. It was also refreshing to see the rapper wear a more independent designer after her Dolce and Gabbana appearance at the Grammys last year. One of the most exciting parts of a red carpet is seeing small designers like Gupta get a chance to shine at one of fashion’s biggest soirees.

Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal wowed on the red carpet in a black dress from Schiaparelli’s Spring 2022 couture collection. The dress featured elaborate gold medallions and not only looked stunning on Gyllenhaal, but also perfectly matched Schiaparelli’s signature of using a relatively simplistic silhouette in order to show off her avant-garde jewelry.

Choosing a black dress allowed the medallions to pop and further enhanced the opulent aesthetic. Schiaparelli proved to be a force to be reckoned with on the red carpet and tonight was no different.

The menswear on the carpet was replete with the usual boring black tuxedos – however actor Timothee Chalamet wowed in an embroidered jacket with lace detailing on the sleeves and high waisted trousers from Louis Vuitton. It’s not the first time Chalamet has worn the designer to a high-profile event, but the look stood out among the otherwise forgettable looks of her peers thanks to its eye-catching details.

When it comes to the worst looks of the night, actress Amy Schumer’s look was a fashion low point on the red carpet. Donning a navy Oscar de la Renta dress with an embroidered bow design, Schumer stood out for all the wrong reasons. A sense of awkwardness – particularly with the placement of the arch design – stifled any sense of whimsy the designer might have intended to evoke. Unfortunately, an attempt at a sham effect fell flat and looked cheap even with the crystal embellishment. Perhaps if the length of the dress was different or the crystal embroidery was implemented throughout, the outfit could have made a bigger impact on the red carpet.

The rambling looks continued with actresses Kristen Stewart and Penelope Cruz, both in Chanel. Stewart – a Chanel ambassador – opted for a black suit set and shorts that featured an unbuttoned shirt underneath. The proportions of the look seemed off, with the micro shorts cutting her thigh and drawing too much attention to the shoes. Additionally, the heavy blazer Stewart wore seemed at odds with the rest of the outfit and resulted in a confusing mishmash of formal and informal elements. Chanel failed to live up to expectations for her first try to a personalized look.

Meanwhile, Cruz wore a long navy blue dress with an exposed buttonhole and a tweed bow around her neck. While the tweed detail was reminiscent of vintage Chanel looks, it appeared extremely disorganized in a look that unsuccessfully attempted to combine elements of menswear into womenswear.

Plus, the exposed buttonhole only added to this confusion, drawing attention to an unflattering line down the middle of the outfit. Chanel seemed to struggle to merge her preppy aesthetic with the high elegance of the Oscars red carpet, which led to a disappointing ensemble from Cruz.

Actress Ariana Debose also suffered from an overly complicated look as she opted for a monochromatic version of the partings, courtesy of Valentino Haute Couture. Normally, Valentino pulls off fantastic red carpet looks, but this look could have been better served with fewer pieces. From the bra top to the ruffled train to the wide leg pants, the outfit lacked a focal point – disconnecting parts led to an outfit that wasn’t fully realized.

Most of the stars on this year’s Oscars red carpet failed to impress amid a sea of ​​looks that lacked depth or creativity. However, some stars managed to rise above the otherwise uninteresting tone the rug displayed and proved they could provide an eye-catching look.
