The Red Carpet Highlights From the 2022 Oscars

Red was clearly trending on the red carpet at the 2022 Oscars. Seems like most attendees got the memo that the fiery color was going to be big at the ceremony. Everyone from Kirsten Dunst to Tracee Ellis Ross to Jennifer Garner flaunted striking gowns in various crimson hues.

Another trend? Sparkles. Lupita Nyong’o really shined in a heavily embellished Prada number. She even sported complementary gold eye makeup. Zendaya’s Valentino haute couture cropped shirt and sequin skirt combo was giving off Sharon Stone and Carolina Herrera vibes. Not that we’re complaining, of course. Jessica Chastain also made a statement in a flashy Gucci gown. Emilia Jones’ glitzy Dolce & Gabbana was pretty epic, too.

Skin was certainly in. Thigh-high slits, plunging necklines and see-through skirts offered plenty of peekaboo moments. Kristen Stewart even rocked short shorts courtesy of Chanel.

There was also lots of blinding bling. Tiffany Haddish’s necklace tied into her Dolce & Gabbana gown perfectly. Rachel Zegler’s choker really upped the ante on her custom Christian Dior haute couture creation. And Zendaya’s stacks of Bvlgari Serpenti Viper diamond bracelets on both arms were something to behold.
