Maria Bakalova at the 2021 Oscars
The Oscars have finally come, and Hollywood's biggest names in the film industry took to the red carpet, both virtually and in Los Angeles, to debut their most award-winning looks of the year. The 93rd Academy Awards was swarming with A-list celebs whose sultry outfits were well worth a double take (or three). With a star-studded list of nominees, presenters, and performers, this award show proved to be a big night for film and for fashion. The stars from this year's buzziest movies (hello, Viola Davis and Andra Day) were dressed to impress, giving viewers just what they've been missing after a year of virtual events.
Gracing the red carpet — and popping up from home — were some of our favorite actors, and from H.E.R's head-turning purple Dundas jumpsuit to Zendaya's gorgeous custom Maison Valentino dress, these Oscars gowns were all we could wish for on the fashion front. Take a look at the most glamorous moments ahead, and get ready to give each look the proper acknowledgment, if not shiny gold award, it deserves.
