NEW YORK (AP) — Fan Bingbing made a regal entrance in sparkling silver and emerald green as the champagne-colored carpet warmed up Sunday at the 95th Academy Awards.
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. We’re looking at you, Lorenzo Zurzolo. Others, like Brendan Fraser, went for traditional black tuxedos.
While Fan looked like a queen, Sofia Carson was a princess in white custom Giambattista Valli haute couture, a gorgeous diamond and emerald necklace that accentuated her ball gown with its off-shoulder, form-fitting bodice, a delicate diamond-shaped cutout at the center . Her jewels were by Chopard, including 122.49 carats of emeralds and 92.57 carats of diamonds.
Monica Barbaro practiced her carpet walk in a two-tone Elie Saab ballgown of deeply perpendicular and delicate blue chiffon with a long full train.
“They were the first couture house to lend to me when nobody knew who I was,” she told E!
Jamie Lee Curtis went for a long-sleeved starlet from Dolce & Gabbana that was the exact color of the new Oscars off-white carpet.
Harvey Guillen and Harry Shum Jr. made their own statements, the former in a Christian Siriano coat with a silver brocade design and full ruffled jacket and the latter in a white evening jacket with a wide sash and black trim.
Lilly Singh also wore Siriano, who managed to save his Oscar looks last week after a pipe burst in his studio. Singh’s magenta trouser look was topped off with a long matching coat.
