To all the aspirants of the 2024 Oscars, making a spectacular appearance on the red carpet might just earn you a different accolade - being recognized as the best dressed. The Oscars in 2024 isn't just a motion picture event, but an occasion to create a fashion impression. Both on and off the red carpet, nominees and guests alike vividly express their styles in custom attires that are meant to point to a lot more than just cinematic accomplishments.

Who could fail to recall the meticulously fitted Christian Siriano tuxedo gown wore by Billy Porter in 2019? Speaking about the outfit, which was “teetering on the boundary of masculinity and femininity,” he communicated to Vogue, “From this [Oscars] instance, I aim for people to comprehend that it’s not necessary for one to understand or concur with other people's authenticity or truths, but indeed we all must respect each other." Let's also call to mind the time when Cher marked her presence at the 1986 Oscars in her now legendary “revenge dress,” conceived by her frequent partner Bob Mackie. Equally memorable is the occasion when Céline Dion's reverse tuxedo and fedora by Dior's John Galliano made news in 1999. She explained to People magazine about the attire back in 2017, saying, "I was the solitary one with pants in a backward suit by Galliano, and if I were to replicate this today, it would succeed. It was avant-garde for the time.”

This all demonstrates that with significant risk comes substantial reward, especially in the realm of fashion. Many attendees of the Oscars 2024 found that their daring fashion choices paid off, securing them a spot in Vanity Fair’s best-dressed list.
