Salma Hayek, you may recall, wore one of the crazier Oscar gowns last night. It had a skirt of many ruffled lilac sequin layers, the bodice had crystals dripping across the front and sides and it was just blinding on camera. Kaiser floated the idea that Salma did not GAF and that she found it pretty. I’m leaning more to her not giving AF with her Vanity Fair Oscar Party look, which was like stiff fancy pajamas. We’ve seen plenty of pajamas as outwear looks recently. This was a cropped jacket with puffy bell sleeves over a floor length skirt.
The back of the jacket says “Dapper Dan.” I only know that as George Clooney’s character’s pomade of choice in O Brother, Where Art Thou? but it’s a brand that is collaborating with Gucci. Dapper Dan is a Harlem-based couturier, Daniel Day, who is known for pioneering hip hop fashion in the 80s and 90s. He was sued by major fashion labels back then and is making a comeback, with Gucci in particular acknowledging his contributions. (Apparently they were called out for copying some of his designs, so they decided to work with him.) I just learned about this fashion icon thanks to Salma’s outfit. Let’s listen to one of my favorite songs of all time, “Paid in Full” by Eric B & Rakim, whom Dan used to dress. Now that I’m listening to golden era rap I f-king love this outfit.
Emma Stone was in Louis Vuitton, whom she represents. I really liked her Oscars jacket and pants combo with the contrasting sash. This dress is a little short for my taste, I would like it to be longer with a tuxedo jacket on top, but I like the details like the leather straps, the buttons across the front and the color blocking. This is modern and fresh.
Newly single Alicia Silverstone looked amazing in hot a pink sleeveless mock neck gown. She’s got a new show coming out in June, based on the life of Kyle Richards from the RHOBH. It sounds bizarre but it might be decent.
Amy Adams was in a navy mermaid Christian Siriano gown with awesome 80s details like puff sleeves and an asymmetric neckline. I would wear this with the flimsiest of excuses, this is gorgeous. Check out her impressive hoop earrings too. Why wasn’t she at the Oscars proper? I want to see more of Amy, she’s still waiting for her g-damn Oscar.
Laura Dern continued the white theme in a Gabriela Hearst suit over a La Perla bustier. She paired it with a red clutch. QUEEN.
