NEW YORK (AP) – Fan Bingbing made a royal entrance at the 95th Academy Awards on Sunday, glistening in silver and emerald green on the champagne-colored carpet. Hong Chau wore a high-necked pink Prada column gown with a feathery black train, and Malala Yousafzai worked the hood of her silver sparkler from Ralph Lauren like a pro.
“X-Men” star Bingbing wore Tony Ward Couture with his hair styled in an Old Hollywood bob as some of the men in the early walkers dazzled. We’re looking at you Lorenzo Zurzolo. Others, such as Brendan Fraser, went for a traditional black tuxedo.
While Phan looked like a queen, Sophia Carson was a princess in white custom Giambattista Valli haute couture, a stunning statement diamond and emerald necklace accentuating her ball gown with her off-the-shoulder, form-fitting bodice, a delicate diamond K shaped cutout. Center. Her jewelry was by Chopard, consisting of a 122.49-carat emerald and a 92.57-carat diamond.
Yousafzai, 25, was the producer of “Stranger at the Gate”. She said that her dress represents “peace, love, harmony”.
“I feel very much myself in this,” she told The Associated Press.
Monica Barbaro practiced her carpet walk in a two-tone Elie Saab ballgown of deep plumb and delicate blue chiffon with a long full train.
“When no one knew who I was, they were the first couture houses to loan me a loan,” she told E!
Jamie Lee went for a long-sleeved sparkler by Curtis Dolce & Gabbana that was the exact color of the Oscars’ new off-white carpet.
Harvey Guillen and Harry Shum Jr. made their own statements, the former in a Christian Siriano coat with a silver brocade design and a full fringed coat and the latter in a white evening jacket with a wide sash and black trim.
“Puss in Boots” star Guillén said his outfit is the first time Siriano has designed for a plus-size man.
The dramatic, ornate long coat flared at the waist. This spawned Guillén’s vampire mockumentary show “What We Do in the Shadows”, on which he plays the fan favorite Guillermo.
Shum made sure to grab supporting actress Nominee Chow to compliment her bubblegum pink frock while chatting with friends.
“You look wonderful,” he said.
“The Whale” actor replied that he did too.
“I try to switch it up,” Shum said.
Lilly Singh wears Siriano, who managed to salvage his Oscars look after a pipe burst in his studio last week. Singh’s magenta trouser look was topped off with a long matching coat.
Sandra Oh’s orange look popped against the lighter carpet. Like Chow, Allison Williams went for soft pink with lots of glitter, while Mindy Kaling stunned in bright white, a bustier look with long sleeves and open boning that separated by Vera Wang. Also in white: Ariana DeBose in a standout Versace moment with jeweled embellishments made to evoke armor.
Williams’ Giambattista Valli look came with chunky embellishments, a feather-trimmed hem and a pink taffeta tulle cape.
The beauty games were strong, too. Oh’s updo was also perfect for her edgy look from Giambattista Valli.
“I love the bangs updo. It matches the orange dress so well. Her light and airy look matches the vibe,” said Danielle James, beauty director at Elle.com.
