The Oscars is an annual event that celebrates the best movies that have hit the big screen. The guests that attend this show and the parties that are hosted after the statues are taken home are dressed in the finest fashions created by some of the greatest designers in the world. In 2022, there were significant style trends to be noticed on the red carpet. Here are a few of the notable trends that were noticed at the Academy Awards.
Garments Full Of Sparkle
Sparkle, one popular accent to many of the gowns worn at the Academy Awards and the parties afterward. Dolce & Gabbana designed many of these sparking garments adorned with either sequins or crystals. Lucy Hale wore a gorgeous off-the-shoulder nude-colored dress embedded with crystals to the viewing party that she attended. Kathryn Newton donned one in a silver hue and covered completely in sequins when she attended an afterparty hosted by Vanity Fair. Marlee Matlin had the ultimate combination of both in the gold gown she exhibited at the same party. The men joined in this trend by blinging their suits as well. Jabari Banks looked handsome in a burgundy ensemble constructed out of metallic fabric that provided a perfect look and shimmer. Emilia Jonesy stunned all those on the red carpet in her ombré-influenced, Swarovski-covered apparel. She carried a gold DG Dolce Box to complete the vision. These pieces were eye-catching and displayed the significant talent of the designers who created them for these celebrities who attended this prestigious event.
Subtle Yet Striking Colors
While gold and silver were popular shades of color at the Oscars, there were also some brilliantly colored and beautiful pieces that were seen there. Dolce & Gabbana produced the emerald masterpiece that Tiffany Haddish displayed at the afterparty that she attended. The garment was covered in crystals and bugle beads from top to bottom. Sterling K. Brown stunned the red carpet in a handsome turquoise silk suit trimmed in black. It was accented with a matching vest and black shirt. Mindy Kaling was sunshine bright in a yellow and white gown with a thigh-high slit in the skirt. Performer Luis Fonsi graced the stage in a baby blue suit and matching shirt that was embedded in crystals that reflected the spotlights above. Matching boots completed the look for him. Paulette Washington joined her husband, Denzel, wearing a melon-colored dress that shimmered with Swarovski crystals. These ensembles were eye-catching and fun and made every event these celebrities attended a light-hearted one to be at.

Sharp Looking Suits
Among the beautiful gowns that were worn to the Academy Awards were just as stunning suits. While many were the classic black on white, some varied from the norm and were a welcome addition. Sir Kenneth Branagh accepted his award for the best original screenplay in a sharp looking navy ensemble designed by Dolce & Gabbana. Jay Ellis countered the traditional style with a white-on-black outfit as he walked the red carpet with Nina Senicar, who was wearing a ruffled black gown with a gauzy bustier. Ellis then changed to a different coat of the same shade for the afterparty. However, this selection was patterned in gray and black and was joined with trousers of the same material. Sebastian Yatra chose a silver pairing that was encrusted in crystals, creating a glimmer on the red carpet as he entered the awards show. He offset it with a black tuxedo shirt.
Sculpted Gowns the Flatter
The designers at Dolce & Gabbana created garments that enhanced the true beauty of the people who wore them. Jada Pinkett Smith arrived at the afterparty in a gold shaded gown that accentuated her body and shimmered in the light. Wilmer Valderrama hit the red carpet wearing a dark blue suit trimmed in green. The fitted garment set off his features. Chance Combs looked simple and sweet in a long white dress covered in silver trim and crystals. Although the sleeves were flowing, the waist and hips were slimming. The various outfits worn to the Oscars were brilliant, beautiful, and took on the personality of the celebrities who wore them and the designers who created them for the event.
