  • The 2023 Oscars were filled with some of the biggest movies vying for the win, from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Everything, Everywhere, All At Once, Tar, The Whale, Triangle of Sadness, & more. Their actors and actresses showed up in looks from major luxury fashion houses and dripping in jewels. But between multiple category upsets, the “Champagne” carpet, and blah fashions.

    Angela’s purple gown looks reallly good on her. Sometimes purple colors overpower the one wearing it but for her, the color just made her look very glowing.

      Angela Bassett is such a beautiful woman, she could wear nearly anything! But i really enjoyed the purple dress!

    • Kit

      Agreed. She should have made Luke’s best dressed.

      i surprised myself in choosing Angela Bassett as my Best Dressed. She was lovely. Soft feminine hair & face and the color & design of the dress was fluid and flawless. That purse she carried was to die for!! As a purse collector, it was quite special.
      ~ The gorgeously sewn yellow dress Kerry Condon wore was splendid!!
      ~ Michelle Williams rarely appeals to me. I don't like her harsh look; pale pixie hair, pale face & red lips. It doesn't work. yuck girlfriend. Please change it up;, most especially that hard hair style!
      There was so much long, long beautiful hair and I can't express how much joy that brings me!
      Thank God long hair has come back in a big way!!!
      Not a fan of Michelle Yeoh's shapeless white bag of a dress. Her face, hair and spirit are beautiful, just not the shapeless dress.
      ~ I am so OVER Jessica Rabbit's tired old bombshell uniform & hair. She's like Sophia Vergara who did the same predictable thing in her time. (prob still doing it.) I don't even 'see' her anymore. She's voided herself out. I have a Barbie gown almost just like hers.
      ~ Gaga is a gem of a human being. Love that Lady. Her talent, personality & humanity are unsurpassed.
      Loved everything abt her Versasce dress but not the pointy bra. Don't like the pointy bra effect anywhere or on anyone, even Madonna.
      ~ Rhianna. I'm sorry but the publicity around her is always so OTT & full of fabricated hype far beyond reality.
      She is paying a Publicity/PR team a fortune to generate that constant stream of hype. They're workin overtime trying to convey her as the greatest singer, style maven & mother of all & she just ain't all that.
      Made some huge hits but not the level of star her Publicity pushes. The general public are unaware of the mechanism behind celebrity fame and how much is force fed to us.
      Ever since Demi Moore bared her naked huge pregnant belly ages ago, women have been flaunting their pregnancies and I don't like it. An expectant mama is walking magic. Putting it out there is tasteless.
      ~ Florence Pugh turned me off when she walked onto the stage, right arm locked, finger holding dress open to show off her thigh even while announcing. I watched transfixed, seeing if she was going to let the darned dress go to greet the winner.
      Too blatantly OBVIOUS. Trying too hard. I didn't mind the voluminous confection of a dress. It was very pretty, as is she; although uninspired re: bland drab dress color.
      Somebody needs to tell Florence & all women; the allure is to leave people expectantly hoping & waiting for an accidental glimpse of something.
      Again, we look back to that time Angelina Jolie made a to-do in her black dress emeralds moment, strategically staging her thigh.
      Just let your reveal happen accidentally & naturally!!
      Ladies when will you learn?
      The beauty & sexiness is in what's hidden, NOT what you work so hard to FLAUNT.
      I'm even more than over the deep, wide chest cleavage. Those fake boob silicone containers are not even attractive anymore.

    i was genuinely impressed at the fabric of hong chau’s prada gown. so many people walking onto carpets these days with wrinkled fabrics but she looks like a pale pink pillar of perfection. just the cherry on top of her stunning performance in “the whale”

      I absolutely agree. One of my favourite looks of the night. The only thing I’d say is that it could have been accessorised better - in my opinion. But it was so beautiful

    I genuinely appreciate Hong Chau for her outfit choice. Her name is Hong ( means pink ) Chau (means pearl) and she picked the aodai collar. It’s such a meaningful outfit.

      Karis Kontilis 2 months ago +4

      i love that for her! i'm honestly just blown away by how seamless and perfectly tailored that column dress was - from afar it looks more like a long sweep of carved pearl than fabric on a body, which i didn't even know was possible. absolutely stunning.

  • K  R Webster
    K R Webster 2 months ago +523

    I think Michelle’s dress would have stood out on a contrast color background and rug. The color they chose is just so horribly neutral. It washes out the fair skinned. It makes light dresses with detail fade into the background

      M. V. Gonzalez 2 months ago +23

      I would like someone edit the carpet in the looks, to see how they were going to look originally (aparently the color change was a last moment thing and a lot of stylists didn't know)

    • Geneva
      Geneva 2 months ago +4

      @BNE S My qujibble with red is that there are many gowns in red and there's often a clash. I would love to know what colour Luke would suggest for the carpet.

    • JLynnEchelon
      JLynnEchelon 2 months ago +4

      I'm sure someone must have done this and I just need to find it, but I need to see these with a red carpet. All the whites are doing absolutely nothing for me. It's also washing a lot of people out. I also didn't love Janelle Monet's dress, but I was happy to see some color.

    Can you do a part two? There were so many other looks I'd love to hear your take on! Cara Delevigne (loved her red dress!), Margot Robbie, Mindy Kaling, Michael B Jordan, Pedro Pascal (interested to hear your take on his tailoring), Paul Mescal, Ludwig Göransson, Deepika Padukone.
    Or maybe even a Vanity Fair party looks video?

I'd give you an Oscar, but all I have is that fuzzy green muppet in the garbage can. I love you to bits!!!! (Carla Delavigne is the only one worth mentioning.

    The yellow of Kerry Condon’s dress may be nod to both her costume in The Banshees of Inisherin and something for which Ireland is well-known around the world: their butter. The coat that Kerry’s character wears as she leaves the island of Inisherin is bright yellow, symbolizing her happiness at leaving. The film, thanks to it gaining popularity with an international audience, is bringing knowledge of Irish history to the forefront, where many smaller elements of its culture have been for a while now. While the most well known elements of Irish culture - especially their cuisine - are their lovely alcohols, another well known element of its culinary culture is its delicious and vibrantly yellow butter.

    I loved the ultraviolet of Angela's gown, and Cate really served!! 💙💜 What baffles me is why anyone thought it was ok to even let that dress happen on JLC? A person who had a role in a film that has a predominantly asian cast, and you're going to put her in D&G. 🙄

    I also wasn't floored by Michelle Yeoh's look, but I have to say that her face last night was the prettiest I've ever seen it look. Almost ingenue. I've always thought she was beautiful, but she was spectacular looking on Sunday. The dress made me wonder if she felt she might not win (not a stretch--no Asian had ever won before), and didn't want to overshadow the ultimate winner. In addition, the youthfulness the look gave her face might keep her in the minds of producers who don't always have numerous roles for women over 35. I'm probably overthinking this...
    Another less kind thought is that her looks have been slightly trending downhill since the memorable, perfectly tailored yellow blazer and scrumptious poofy floral skirt ensemble that started the season. It's got to be impossible to keep up that trend.
    Overall I agree: sadly, no real memorable looks yesterday. But it was a great night. Maybe I'm just getting old and sentimental, but I can't think of another year where I wanted multiple winners for each category.

    Your commentary is always on point and I love all the background info you give on the designers and how a dress is a throwback to this year or that--so much research goes into your videos and I appreciate this attention to detail! I absolutely HATED the "champagne" carpet--you could see every little spec of dirt, grass whatever--it looked just awful and did nothing to showcase the fashions. Thank you for an entertaining overview of the Oscar red carpet fashions.

    On the Michelle Yeoh look; I watched a recent interview about a week ago where she talked about how her mom had opinions about her clothing. From the video of her mother watching the ceremony in Malaysia, I thought how similar their two outfits looked (white, feathers, ethereal looking). I’d like to think that was something she thought about with the selection of her dress, especially after she dedicated the award to her mother. For that, I really like the look 🥲💖🥯

      Yes, how he reflected Michelle's costume from the launderette scene was very smart and the two of them really gave some wonderful speeches after so many wins.

    I think the red Cara Delevingne dress was worth a mention, as was that big white gauzy dress with the free-standing, over-the-head extension.

    Hey Luc, I hope you can read this comment. A little interesting thing that I noticed about Hong Chau's dress is that it represents her name as well. Hong Chau means pink pearl in Vietnamese. The fact that she chose to wear a pink dress with pearl earrings is amazing. *chef kiss*

    YAY for making a video on the Vanity Fair after party as there were some amazing looks.
    As for this video, some of my favourites of the night were missing.
    Looks I liked - Angela Bassett (just gorgeous), Michelle Yeoh, Sandra Oh (stunning, on point, a queen), Greg Tarzan Davis, Shohreh Aghdashloo (both stunning and meaningful), Sarah Polley, Ram Charan, Marlee Matlin, Deepika Padukone, Harvey Guillen (a thing of beauty), Barry Keoghan (except for the shoes), Halle Berry (the whole look was a thing of beauty from head to toe), Nicole Kidman, Emily Blunt (perfection), Jessica Chastain, Sofia Carson (a princess dream), Ava DuVernay, Stephanie Hsu, Daniel Kwan, Michael B. Jordan (sometimes a little can go a long way), Vanessa Hudgens, Paul Mescal, Ruth E. Carter, Malala Yousafzai, Michelle Williams, Fan BingBing (glamorous), Cara Delevingne (the whole look was just *chef's kiss*).
    Also, are hairdressers in LA on strike? As many of the ladies looked like they just put on the dress and run out of home. And it's a theme this red carpet season. Ana de Armas being the first that comes to mind. Sometimes the hair-down look works - like on Jessica Chastain, other times it just looks lazy.

    I love that you mentioned that Sandra Oh understood how to wear the dress which is something I believe Rooney Mara could have used to look even better. Hong Chau was also my favorite.

    First of all - Wow super impressed how fast you put up this video! 👏thx for that! I really love learning about the history of all the fashion and I’m always excited to see if I agree with you on whether or not a look is standing out. One minor critic I have for this one is the Rooney Mara - Alexander McQueen look. While I again loved to hear about the story around this dress, I feel this looks very unflattering on her, gives her an almost constraint posture, „pulls her down“ and compared to the Model wearing it, for me it doesn’t sit right, it should be higher up on the shoulders and the bust, of course that horrible champagne carpet does not help to make this one pop either. I also missed Angela Basset in your BEST list - she was Royalty in that ultraviolet dress 💜

    hi luke!!! been a fan for ages but i wanted to let you know that i love the care and attention you gave to hong chau’s dress and heritage!!!! it means a lot how in-depth you went with the analysis and dived into prada’s history w the ao dai. i learned so much and i love that you brought attention to the vietnamese culture on your channel! (side note: you pronounced it nearly perfectly! the d in dai makes a yuh sound so it would be pronounced ao yai)

    Good critique, mostly aligned w/ mine and my daughter's opinions. Only thing you didn't cover was what we thought was a truly ghastly mistaken dress on Ruth, the costume designer who won the Oscar for best costumes in Wakanda Forever. I didn't mind the gold color, or the fabric, or the hot pink lining and platform sandals, BUT, the part that covered her chest looked badly stitched and, like, puckery, like they just couldn't quite get it right, and that was a shame. I saw what she was going for in my head, but when that seam started getting jiggy, she should've had a Plan B, because the gold/pink didn't work out that well. And she is the winner of the Oscar for best costumes! Which with I agreed, the costumes in that movie were FAB. Her dress, not so much.

    Truly agree with your Hong Chau critique … my favorite as well. And a subliminal deconstructed pink triangle in the back, giving me a nod to silence =death posters of the late 1980s. Maybe just a trigger in my mind, but shows how wonderful fashion is, a true art form to allow a mind to drift with such a minimalist ( at quick glance) piece of art.

    I’m 100% d’accord with your view of the Michelle Williams dress; I also think it’s one of the quite rare occasions when the dress (and its idea) are 100% complimenting the face and personality of the wearer.
    I wish this was the case more often: I look at Angela Bassett and think “What a beautiful dress, great fit, gorgeous color to go with her skin - but Bassett is a muscular, sporty woman with a face (and acting roles) to match, and the oh-so romantic vibe of this dress is not perfect for her…
    Also agree with you about this sheer upper thing on Michelle Yeoh’s dress: It spoils the whole thing. Maybe it it was white, or sheerer - or not there at all…

    my main thing with yeoh's dress is that she was a really strong contender, with huge chances of winning the Oscar and making history and with that in mind her team couldve chosen a dress that would make this moment even more glamorous and unforgettable. she was going to give a speech, hold the statuette and make history... why wear something that washes her? not to compare her with blanchett but blanchett's outfit was of someone who was ready to go up the stage and give a speech.

    👑 Angela Bassett and 👑 Michelle Yeoh were lovely! I wasn't mad at the white sheer fabric, though I would have liked to see how it would've looked truly sheer. Thanks for your explanation of the elements of Hong Chao's dress because it gave me a better appreciation of it -- before I thought it was blah. I thought Halle Bailey's dress was sweet, and I loved Rhianna's red carpet look (celebrate that belly, honey!). I was too distracted by Jonathan Majors' white socks to appreciate the suit.

    I think Hong Chau’s dress is almost perfect. IMO the back plastic feather thing is not great from how it looks to how it absurdly attaches to the dress. Love everything else and that fit is insanely precise.

    I feel bad for the dresses that clashed horribly with the carpet 😂 it's an okay colour, but what would look striking against a red carpet is very MEH against the 'champagne' one.
    FYI empire waistline gets its name from the french empire- empress josephine popularised it around europe (the style predates the name and was called greek or something before then) I don't think britain called itself an empire until later (Victoria was the first monarch with the title)

    Love your commentary! Do you think that not having a red carpet was a factor in how these dresses presented? For example, I think that Ana DeArmas' dress would have looked better on the red carpet, as opposed to the champagne color. Cheers

    I loved and agreed with most of your commentary here. More of the dresses appealed to me than is usually the case. Gorgeous colors, lovely shaping, nothing outrageous or tacky as sometimes happens. I was most dissapointed in Halle Berry: her dress did not do her justicw with those dime store roses. Also her hair needed a better shaping .
