Everything Regina King does is a serve, as the youths would say. She’s really in her bag these days, directing full-length feature movies and Cadillac commercials, getting the best couture and being chosen to “open” the Oscars. One of the best parts of the 2021 Oscars was Regina’s Louis Vuitton gown and her long, continuous-take walk from the red carpet to inside the Union Station venue (I’m including the video below). Did you know that her Oscar date was Aldis Hodge? He’s ridiculously good-looking, my God. Hodge starred in Regina’s film One Night In Miami. As for the LV… I’m not even a big LV fan, but they hit out of the park with this look for Regina. It fit her like a glove, the color was perfect and the structured sleeve ended up looking really elegant.
Maria Bakalova also wore Louis Vuitton, and I wasn’t super-jazzed about this gown. Maria has absolutely been trying – and succeeding – to become the Fashion Girl of the awards season, serving up some big looks over Zoom and Instagram, and using fashion to hustle for more exposure and more work. This was supposed to feel like a culmination of that, like the ultimate princess moment. But it was just a boring white gown with a tulle skirt. Her Moussaieff jewelry was nice. She looked so sad when she didn’t win!
