The kaleidoscope of exits of the guests of the award began with the spirit-lifting (especially for Los Angeles, where the thermometer did not exceed 12 degrees Celsius) image of Billy Porter. The actor of the TV series "Pose", whom we well remember for his lush black dress from the 2019 ceremony, did not break his own tradition and appeared in a top made of gilded feathers and a voluminous balloon skirt.

After such a start, the degree of courage and showiness of male images began to plummet. Timothy Chalamet, who at previous film awards appeared in floral suits and shimmering shoulder straps, put on a rather modest nylon suit by his own standards, and Rami Malek, who recently starred in everything fitted and shiny in the Saint Laurent advertising campaign, is a black total bow without any or Instagram-intensive details.

To sacrifice their own comfort on the red carpet, followed by millions, few risk. So men - including Brad Pitt, who won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor - opted for the classic black tie, while women, like Renee Zellweger, who won the Best Actress of the Year, chose pure blonde shades. In white outfits came Salma Hayek, who made a curtsy to the Greek style, Cynthia Erivo, drowned in a fluffy, almost wedding skirt, Lily Aldridge, who preferred the 2013 Ralph Lauren collection to the new dress, and Sandy Powell, whose costume was already signed by the whole Hollywood, and not just for fun. Subsequently, the Oscar nominee for her work on the Irishman's style will sell the memorable thing and transfer the collected money to charity.

The list of Oscar red carpet announcements was not limited to Powell's image. Best Actor of the Year Joaquin Phoenix came for his first statuette in a Stella McCartney costume, in which he went out to reporters all season. Instead of a speech of thanks, he read out an ode to ecology: “Many of us are guilty of forgetting about nature. We think we are the center of the universe, so we drain its resources. It seems to me that if we use love and compassion, we can create systems that will change our world. We need to forget the mistakes we made in the past and give ourselves a second chance."

The Christian Dior cape, in which Natalie Portman came, was embroidered with the names of women directors who were worthy of an Oscar nomination, but did not receive one: for example, Greta Gerwig (Little Women), Lulu Wang (Farewell "), Mati Diop (" Atlantic ") and Lorin Skafaria (" Strippers ").

Another expressive outlet belonged to director Spike Lee. His invariably purple suit this time has acquired a yellow piping and the number "24" - a reference to the color scheme of the uniform and the game number of basketball player Kobe Bryant, who died shortly before the Oscars. In other words, this red carpet showed that today not only (and sometimes not so much) the author, silhouette and decor of the image are important, but also its semantic load.
