The Best and Worst Dressed Celebs at the 2021 Oscars Must Be Seen to Be Believed

Though Hollywood’s biggest night will look a little different this year, fans are still excited for the 2021 Oscars on Sunday, April 25. After a year in quarantine watching movie after movie, it feels right to celebrate the films that got us through this uncertain time — and, of course, the A-lister fashions (good and bad) that will grace the red carpet.

This year, celebs like Riz Ahmed, Carey Mulligan, Amanda Seyfried and Daniel Kaluuya will vie for coveted acting awards. As for the films themselves, the Best Picture award is stacked with powerful nominees: The Father, Judas and the Black Messiah, Mank, Minari, Nomadland, Promising Young Woman and The Trial of the Chicago 7.

The very first Academy Awards ceremony was held in 1929 — nearly 100 years — but the legendary celebration of film has come a long way since its initial show. When it comes to fashion, the red carpet event has become the premiere destination to show off one’s style prowess and so many famous folks have shined during that entrance.

In 2019, Lady Gaga — who was nominated for Best Actress for her performance in A Star Is Born and won Best Original Song for the film’s powerhouse track, “Shallow” — stunned the internet when she rocked an incredible structured black Alexander McQueen gown that night.

However, her jewelry ended up getting more attention than her gown. The “Born This Way” singer accessorized her stunning couture dress with a 128-carat (yes, you read that right) diamond necklace from the iconic Tiffany’s. “The Tiffany Diamond is an exceptional stone for many reasons, including its incredible size, its historic importance and the fact that it has remained at Tiffany & Company since its purchase in the 19th century,” Daphne Lingon, the head of the jewelry department at Christie’s, previously told Town and Country.

The expert said of Gaga’s bling, “This stone is truly in a league of its own for its size and its long history with the renowned jewelry house. It was exciting to see the piece reemerge for an evening of Hollywood glamor.”
