Albeit a little delayed, the 2021 Academy Awards have finally arrived. While upward of 600 journalists tuned in to the lauded ceremony via Zoom, a flurry of celebrities and filmmakers have descended on Union Station and Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. The 93rd Academy Awards was not without its controversy – the dress code is “a fusion of inspirational and aspirational” (no casual attire permitted) while acceptance speeches are to be done in person only.
Nonetheless, the in-person soirée is welcomed following months of glitchy Zoom calls and lavish couture that can only be viewed from the torso up. Instead Carey Mulligan shone in a voluminous two-piece Valentino, Regina King resembled a glittering blue butterfly and Andra Day was of course a vision for her very first Oscars nomination in Vera Wang. (Quietly, Amanda Seyfried has become the style icon of the 2021 awards season.)
Whether you’re simply here for the style or a film enthusiast (or both), the Oscars sounded the return of normality if only for a fleeting evening.
