night of nights

It is Hollywood’s biggest night of the year, and the 91st Academy Awards certainly didn’t disappoint. With powerful musical numbers and the most glamorous frocks, it also served up its fair share of shocks – among them the moment dark horse Olivia Colman took out the Oscar for Best Actress for her role in The Favourite, while Green Book was surprisingly named Best Picture. However, it was the electric performance of “Shallow” by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper that really had everyone talking. While Cooper’s long-term partner, Irina Shayk, watched on from the front row, the pair sang the title track from their film A Star Is Born , which later won Best Original Song, in a moment so intimate it sparked romance rumours between the two once more.

star-studded arrivals

It was kicked off with the US ABC’s pre-show, hosted by the likes of model Ashley Graham and performer Billy Porter, who frocked up in a custom Christian Siriano tuxedo-gown for the 91st Academy Awards.“Putting on those heels made me feel the most masculine I’ve ever felt in my life,” Porter told Vogue. Also swapping traditional red-carpet attire for something more expressive were Eighth Grade star Elsie Fisher, rapper Awkwafina and actress Amy Poehler, who all ditched the customary dresses and suited up for the annual soirée. Among the best-dressed were Hollywood power couples: Aquaman’s Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet, Bohemian Rhapsody’s Rami Malek and Lucy Boynton, and Bradley Cooper with Irina Shayk. Although Cooper had both his mum, Gloria Campano, and Shayk as escorts, that didn’t stop E! News host Maria Menounos…

carpet calling

ASHLEY GRAHAM ZAC POSEN The model opted for simple elegance in a custom number for her first Oscars red carpet. “Thank you [Zac Posen] for making my Oscar dress dreams come true,” Graham wrote. MELISSA McCARTHY BRANDON MAXWELL Nominated as Best Actress for her role in Can You Ever Forgive Me? Melissa McCarthy snubbed the traditional gown for a custom pant-suit and cape. AMY ADAMS VERSACE It’s hard to believe that the six-time Academy Award nominee has never won an Oscar, but she definitely takes the cake for best dressed in her custom silver embroidered frock. BRIE LARSON CELINE While she wasn’t up for any nominations this year, the Vice actress sure made a statement in her Céline by Hedi Slimane chain-mail gown. JENNIFER LOPEZ TOM FORD Veteran Academy Awards attendee JLo shone in her “embroidered, mirror-mosaic long-sleeved gown”. She wrote on Instagram, “There’s…

magical moments

A ll eyes were on Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper as they performed their highly anticipated acoustic version of award-winning tune “Shallow” from the film A Star Is Born. Before the seamless rendition, which earned a standing ovation, Gaga told reporters in the Oscars press room that her co-star told her to find her happy place. “Right before we did our last rehearsal for this performance of ‘Shallow’ he said, ‘Let’s just drop a little bit of joy.’ And I said, ‘OK.’ And, it turns out, joy did a lot for me,” she said. While there wasn’t a host in sight for the 91st Academy Awards, the night started off with a bang as Queen, with singer Adam Lambert, opened the Oscars with a powerful, abridged version of the rock group’s…

lady gaga’s winning style

Lady Gaga and her team had a clear sartorial vision for the 2019 Academy Awards’ red carpet. “We wanted to create something timeless and iconic to wrap a bow on this epic A Star Is Born journey,”says stylist Tom Eerebout, who styles the star with Sandra Amador. After all, it was a defining night for Gaga, who was nominated for Best Actress and Best Original Song, the latter of which she won. To achieve their goal of making her look“elegant, beautiful and memorable”, says Amador, they worked with Alexander McQueen designer Sarah Burton on a strapless black gown and edgy leather gloves. For the final touch, Gaga added Tiffany & Co. earrings, plus a pendant featuring the famous Tiffany Diamond – a priceless piece last worn by Audrey Hepburn in 1961…
