The 5 Best Oscars 2023 Looks

The stars were out in full force at tonight's 95th Oscars ceremony. In lieu of the traditional red carpet, celebrities walked a champagne-hued rug for the first time at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. After 62 years of seeing red, the 2023 Academy Awards' production team felt it was time for a change. "The sienna-color tent and champagne-colored carpet was inspired by watching the sunset on a white-sand beach at the 'golden hour' with a glass of champagne in hand, evoking calm and peacefulness," Lisa Love, a creative consultant for the event told The New York Times. How very Hollywood.

Indeed, the new carpet shade seemed to influence some of the evening's best-dressed celebrities. From Fan Bingbing's glittering Tony Ward couture to Zoe Saldana's shimmering Fendi gown, several of the night's attendees dazzled in a variety of metallic hues. Ready to see the best-dressed celebs on the 2023 Academy Awards' champagne carpet? Ahead, we'll break down some of the most impressive looks of the night.

Fan Bingbing wore green, but everyone else was envious of her

Without a doubt, Fan Bingbing was one of the evening's best-dressed celebs on the 95th Academy Awards' champagne carpet. The Chinese actor wowed viewers in a stunning Tony Ward couture gown with sparkling, tinsel-like embellishments and a billowing green-sleeved cape. Although the influential star's dress design was breathtaking enough, she went all-out with a vintage Hollywood-inspired makeup look framed by delicate finger waves to match. To top the look off, Bingbing opted for a flashy oblong clutch and silvery platform shoes.

Halle Bailey brought Disney princess realness to life

Many celebs wore strapless dresses at this year's Oscars, but Halle Bailey's powder blue Dolce & Gabbana gown was a downright dream. The Italian design featured a structured corset top and a flowing tulle skirt, and "The Little Mermaid" star paired its romantic silhouette with a diamond necklace and ring. Her hair was pulled back in a braided style, and she wore natural makeup. Eagle-eyed viewers may recall that Bailey wore a gorgeous gown in a similar aqua color to last year's Academy Awards, her first time attending the Oscars.

Cara Delevingne welcomed spring early with rose-red gown

In a style that oozed Old Hollywood glamour, Cara Delevingne gave a nod to the Oscars' retired red carpet in a crimson Elie Saab Couture gown. The model's red ballgown featured a dramatic puff sleeve and a daring slit that revealed matching sky-high heels. But perhaps most impressive of all, Delevingne's dress even included some cheeky pockets. Her hair was pulled back in a sleek, parted style, and she accessorized with a diamond and emerald snake necklace, earrings, and cuff.

Angela Bassett may have lost her Oscar, but she stunned in purple

Angela Bassett sent hearts racing with a sumptuous purple design from Moschino. The Best Supporting Actress nominee shone in the elegant, low-cut gown that swirled around her feet with a mini-train. Interestingly, Cara Delevingne wasn't the only one sporting serpent jewelry this evening: Bassett also wore a snake-headed necklace that perfectly matched her sparkling silver earrings. Her lustrous locks were styled in voluminous waves that skimmed her bare shoulders. The star kept things natural for makeup with a soft, velvety lip finish and a hint of peachy shadow.

Vanessa Hudgens proved with simple elegance why she was the best choice to hold down the carpet

Vanessa Hudgens hosted the Oscars champagne carpet show for the first time ever this evening, and she did so in serious style. The star emitted pure glamour in a black vintage Chanel gown with a flirty white-trimmed neckline. While her jaw-dropping updo was undoubtedly modern, her smoldering makeup and glitzy jewels harkened back to Academy Awards of the past. The one detail that caught everyone's eye? Her bold black and white nail design. It's sure to become a manicure trend overnight.
