Dress code? We don’t know her.
For all the smacking, snubs, and slaps, it has been pretty eventful at the 94th Oscars. Let’s be real, one of the things we look forward to, aside from the accomplishments in cinema, are outfits that walk the red carpet. And true enough, there was major slayage. Cropped button downs, mini tuxedos, shirtless looks—name it, and the Oscars red carpet had it. Scroll down below for some of our favorite rule-breaking moments!
A cropped top to the Oscar’s red carpet? Why not? Best believe Zendaya knows how to turn heads, especially in this custom Valentino look that reminded us of Sharon Stone’s 1998 Oscars look. She then changed into the sharpest pantsuit by Sportmax afterwards. Get a girl who can do both.
2. HAILEY BIEBER
Technically, Hailey Bieber didn’t wear this to the red carpet but hey, it’s still the Pre-Oscars 2022 party. What’s wrong with showing up in the tiniest, micro, shortest of ’em all shorts? It’s Saint Laurent, honey.
3. TIMOTHÉE CHALAMET
Timothée Chalamet, aka The Golden Boy, has always been a pleasure to watch on the red carpet for his bold menswear choices. This time around, he showed up in nothing but a glittery tux with lace trimmings. Error 404: shirt not found. The best part? A single “?” emoji as his caption.
4. CHLOE AND HALLE BAILEY
Of course, the enchantresses were present. Chloe and Halle Bailey were like real-life sirens on the Oscars 2022 red carpet, wearing LVDF and Roberto Cavalli. Plus points for the ultra high slit and the lowest midriff cut-outs.
5. KRISTEN STEWART
When Chanel asks you to wear a tux and shorts on the Oscars 2022 red carpet, you do it. No one else could’ve pulled this off better than Kristen Stewart’s signature non-chalant style. The messy hair and the jewels sold the look, too. Brb, adding this to our inspo board of grocery run fits.
6. WILLOW SMITH
No one else does it like our favorite emo girl, Willow Smith. We do miss her dreads, but the buzzcut, red eyelids, and lippie to match was GIVING. Can we also talk about how her Oscars 2022 look is pretty reminiscent of her mom Jada’s role as Niobe in the Matrix?
7. ARIANA DEBOSE
Miss Ariana Debose IS the red carpet. When all else fails, a cape will always add the drama that you need. And wearing pants? Comfortable and yes, chic. Can we also applaud her for being the first openly queer actress of color to win an Oscar?
With H.E.R., the eyewear will always do the talking ’cause we all need some shade, right? The blue eyeliner and her curls up in a bun were the perfect contrast to the neon gown by Carolina Herrera that she wore.
