That’s what style is all about this year
The stars dressed up for the “Academy Awards” in 2021. Despite the change in the procedure due to Covid-19, there were also some curiosities such as Crocs to marvel at on the red carpet in addition to dreamy robes. Fashion no-go? Nope, not in 2021 for a long time!
What do we most like to marvel at at awards ceremonies on the red carpet? Of course, the most exciting robes, the greatest couples and the most radiant winners. But we also love the quirky details that make every event unique. Even if the Academy Awards 2021 had to take place under Covid-19 guidelines, there was still a lot to discover. In addition to great looks, one thing stood out: fashion rules? Are kind of old school!
Oscars 2021: Anything goes!
Although the official invitation that all nominees received still said “Formal is great, casual is not,” not all celebrities adhered to this dress code announcement. Instead of flowing ball gowns, as with Andra Day, you saw sexy slip dresses, but especially when choosing shoes, more emphasis was placed on individuality (and comfort).
Most noticeable was probably the musician Questlove, who came in gold-colored Crocs instead of dress shoes, including socks underneath. A discussion broke out on Twitter as to whether the drummer might have sprayed the shoes himself with gold paint, which was not so evenly distributed.
There was also a lot of discussion about Chloé Zhao’s shoe choice. The director, who was the second woman in history to take home the trophy for best female director for the film “Nomadland”, wore simple white sneakers with her Hermès maxi dress – and looked fantastic with them.
Relaxed dress codes at such events not only result in more personal freedom for the stars and their stylists, but ultimately also more exciting looks for us viewers – and that’s good for everyone. And let’s be honest: tastes are different and “worst-dressed lists” are soooo from the last decade.
