AP – Fan Bingbing made a regal entrance in sparkling silver and emerald green at the 95th Academy Awards. Bingbing, the X-Men star, wore Tony Ward Couture with her hair sculpted into an Old Hollywood bob, as some of the men among the early walkers brought the sparkle.
Also looking royal was Angela Bassett in Moschino. The dress by Jeremy Scott included draping that looked like a huge bow up top as the fabric swirled around her body. She was perfectly accented with a serpent Bulgari necklace.
Jamie Lee Curtis went for a long-sleeve sparkler by Dolce & Gabbana that was the precise colour of the Oscars’ new off-white carpet.
Harvey Guillen and Harry Shum Jr made statements of their own, the former in a Christian Siriano coat with a silver brocade design and a full ruffled coat and the latter in a white evening jacket with a wide sash and black trim.
Fashion expert Melissa Rivers, daughter of the late Fashion Police host Joan Rivers, loved all the tidy hair, white and statement jewellery. “Some of the women that we really look to are showing us glimpses of what we’re going to see next. We’re getting away from the big ballgowns and going with the column,” she said.
She includes Jessica Chastain in custom silver crystal Gucci among them. Chastain paired her strapless column gown and black train with a gold Lionhead Gucci necklace featuring 80 carats of green tsavorites and diamonds.
