On My Radar...February 26, 2019: My Favorite Oscars Looks

Updated: Mar 26, 2019

What else could be on my fashion radar this week but the Oscars? To be completely honest, I don’t have cable, so I didn’t get to actually watch them. This is a personal finance blog, too, after all. Cable is such a waste.

Anyway, I’m lucky that every entertainment news outlet there is was bustling with Oscars coverage. After looking through all the pictures from the night, I’ve rounded up my top 5 favorite Oscars red carpet looks. Here they are, in no particular order:

Amandla Stenberg

First of all, her hair is gorgeous. The braids, the waves, the shine - perfection. I know I said these were in no particular order, but this was actually my number one favorite of the night. The way the delicate, shiny fringe drapes over the bodice of this Miu Miu dress is so eye-catchingly gorgeous. Also, did you know she’s only 20? I feel like I need to get my shit together.


Awkwafina slayed in this suit. It’s simple at all, but not too distracting either. I love the big ruffles by her neck and the allover glitter. Also, did you notice that her eyeshadow matches the outfit? The beauty blog Byrdie went behind the scenes with her as she was getting ready and documented how her look was created.

Her outfit wasn’t the only amazing thing. She also took a tequila shot out of her purse.

Danai Gurira

This Black Panther star played the leader of the king’s guards, but at the Oscars she looked like real royalty. The classic, elegant cut of this Brock Collection dress was complemented by the unusual texture of the material. Her gold hair accessories tied it all together, and the long braids were a nice change from her usual short ‘do.

Elsie Fisher

Fisher, who is only 15 years old, evoked a powerful maturity in her menswear-inspired look. Her barrette and bag added just the right touches of femininity, and her square-toe heels topped off the angular outfit. It’s safe to say she is way more fashionable than I was at 15.

Brie Larson

I’m a little partial to Brie Larson because she’s going to be Captain Marvel, and I’m a huge Marvel fan. But you really can’t deny how awesome this chain-mail dress from Celine is. The bold silver combined with her icy blonde hair created a cool vibe, and her simple makeup let the dress take center stage.

On My Radar... posts let you explore the media that’s on my mind. I post fashion Radar posts on Tuesdays and finance Radar posts on Thursdays.
