The 95th Academy Awards kick off with a glittering red carpet and some of Hollywood’s most fashionable people are nominated.
Cate Blanchett, Michelle Yeoh and Paul Mescal have styled it at the awards shows so far this season.
Here’s what they wore from the Baftas, the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards and more.
– Cate Blanchett.
Blanchett’s award-winning fashion for her role in Todd Field’s film Tar had a meaningful message behind it.
Working with celebrity stylist Elizabeth Stewart, who has dressed Julia Roberts and Viola Davis, Blanchett’s costumes put sustainability at the forefront.
Blanchett wore a black dress with sculptural electric blue arms by Alexander McQueen at the Critics Circle Film Awards on February 5 in London.
The actress has recently made a habit of wearing clothes for environmental causes – in 2019 she wore her first custom-made suit.
On February 19 for the EE Bafta Film Awards – where Blanchett took home the Best Actress award – she again wore the same black Maison Margiela dress she wore to the 2015 Oscars.
John Galliano designed the original dress and was also responsible for its new iteration – adding padding to the shoulders for a more dramatic silhouette.
Blanchett continued this ethos throughout her awards shows — including a Giorgio Armani dress she wore to the SAG Awards, with recycled lace from another dress.
– Michelle Yew
If Yeoh takes home the best actress gong on Sunday, she will be the first South Asian actress to win in that category.
While Yoh’s style can be described as classic and glamorous, she’s not afraid to take risks on the red carpet.
Highlights from this awards season included a dress by Alexander McQueen and an experimental black gown with gold accents by Schiaparelli for the SAG Awards.
Yoh went down in an unusual way for Baftas. Instead of a typical gown, she wore a blush colored Dior dress with cap sleeves.
– Paul Mescal
Mescal, who is nominated in the Best Actor category for his role in Aftersun, is making waves on the red carpet.
While he’s no stranger to the classic black tuxedo – a double-breasted black Gucci suit paired with a 1930s Cartier brocade, as seen at the Baftas – he also has a more experimental side to his style.
He wore a slouchy Vivienne Westwood dress in a nautical-inspired striped shirt with a hemline for the Newport Beach Film Festival UK honors event.

– Austin Butler
Nominated for Best Actor for his role as Elvis, Butler channeled old Hollywood heartthrobs on the red carpet as James Dean.
The clothes are often slightly over-the-top, but still perfectly tailored – like the pinstriped Tom Ford ensemble he wore to the Bafta nominations party.
– Kerry Condon.
Condon’s red carpet glamor is all about understated elegance.
Nominated for Best Supporting Actress in The Banshees Of Inisherin, Condon’s Baftas outfit is a prime example of this.
On the red carpet, she wore a shimmering Giorgio Armani Privé gown paired with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.
She told Harper’s Bazaar: “I really like that simplicity is a little more elevated… The way the dress is cut reminds me of nineties fashion — especially in the back, it’s really pretty — so it has a nostalgic look to it.
“It’s very feminine and reminds me of something you’d see at the Oscars back in the day. I used to watch it growing up.”
– Angela Bassett
Nominated for supporting actress for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Bassett’s beauty exudes a high level of intelligence.
She wore a bright lilac dress by Pamela Rowland to the baftas, with statement balloon sleeves.
Other standout outfits include a black, tiered Christian Siriano gown at the Critics Choice Awards and a sunny yellow Giambattista Valli fishtail dress to the SAG Awards.
– Barry Keoghan
Up for the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role in The Banshees Of Inisherin, Keoghan made a bold choice at the Baftas.
In red, Alexander McQueen wore a double-breasted suit with a white shirt and red jewelry.
Keogan wasn’t the first to choose an unusual colored outfit for the red carpet – he wore all white to the SAG Awards and navy blue to the Golden Globes.
