5 Stars Who Served Elegant Glam Looks At The Oscars 2023

Classy and put-together inspo

The star-studded Oscars 2023 is finally here. Instead of a red carpet, the organisers decided to roll out a champagne-coloured one in hopes that its colour would remind everyone of a peaceful, sandy beach. So it’s out with the old for the Oscars carpet, but we’re delighted that some things never change, like the stars’ love for elegant, black-and-white looks.

We’ve rounded up these five celebrities who slayed in their monochrome ensembles and trending beauty looks during their champagne carpet moment.

Top 5 Oscars 2023 beauty looks

1. Rihanna

Oscars 2023 Beauty Looks - Rihanna

A diamond in the sky.

Rihanna stole the show with her sweet plus one (her baby number two), highlighted by her Alaïa dress which came with a leather black bra top. Her beauty look included bold black eyeliner, maple red lipstick (which reminded us of her iconic lipstick launch moment at the Super Bowl), and blood-red nails. She wore her hair with an effortless top knot (updos seemed to be a beloved hairstyle on the carpet).

Rihanna is a first-time Oscar nominee and performer. She honoured the late actor Chadwick Boseman with her emotional performance of her song, ‘Lift Me Up’.

2. Deepika Padukone

Bollywood superstar Deepika Padukone rocked her red carpet (or champagne carpet) debut with her charming all-black, Old Hollywood-inspired look. She wore an off-shoulder, black velvet Louis Vuitton gown and paired it with Opera gloves. Although she wore her hair up in a messy bun, her entire look made her seem so put-together. For makeup, she opted for winged eyeliner, a nude pink lip shade, nude eye shadow, feathered brows, and rouged cheeks.

She is one of the presenters at the ceremony and is known for representing Indian cinema in various international films. She was also one of the jury members at the Cannes Film Festival last year.

3. Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa Hudgens was going for a slicked and polished look, and she nailed it and topped it all off with a black bow. The Princess Switch actress donned a vintage black and white Chanel gown and paired it with diamond earrings and a necklace, and gave us low-key but regal vibes.

4. Mindy Kaling

Actor and producer Mindy Kaling created a perfectly balanced look with her all-white Vera Wang gown and bold makeup. She decided to go all out with her heavy false eyelashes, contour, and dark red lipstick.

Fun fact: when she came to present the Best Original Score, she wore the same dress but this time in an all-black hue and paired it with a brighter red lip too. Talk about girls who could slay both!

5. Ashley Graham

We saw various updos on the carpet, but nothing could top model Ashley Graham’s intricately braided updo. Aside from her hair, we’re loving her dramatic winged eyeliner and mascara. But the drama doesn’t stop there. She dazzled in her sheer black gown which had a cutout midline, flowy sleeves (that could fly if she wanted to) and sparkly details.

Ashley came as the host of the Countdown to the Oscars pre-show with Vanessa Hudgens and Lilly Singh.
