Rachel Zegler in Dior at the Oscars: great for a last minute gown?

Rachel Zegler, the star of Best Picture nominee West Side Story, was famously not invited to the Oscars up until less than a week ago, after she made it public that she wasn’t extended the courtesy. She joked about this during her presenting duties, saying “I never thought I would be here six days ago. Dreams really can come true really fast.”

Rachel was in a sheer patterned black Dior with a scoop neck. Her styling really complements the look and I love her hair in a bob like that. She is an absolute knockout.

Look at her makeup and that incredible choker.

Co-host Regina Hall was in a chiffon brown Vera Wang dress on the red carpet that was slightly see through. This color is a little muted for me, but it looks amazing on her. I love how the bodice is cut and so precisely layered. She is 51 and gives me hope.

Amy Schumer was in this weird Oscar de la Renta with a bow on the front that makes it looks like her boobs are walking. I will grudgingly admit that she was better than I expected.

I still feel like Wanda Sykes could have hosted on her own. Here she is with her wife, Alex. They have two children together, 12-year-old boy and girl twins, Olivia and Lucas. They have been together since 2006 and are still crazy about each other!

    She looks great!
    How a kardashian and Travis barker got a Oscar invite before she did is beyond me. Why were they there?

    • Miranda says:

      Travis was in the little all-star backing band (not the orchestra, mind you). I don’t know if the mini band is a thing they do every year but never mention, or if it was the first time, but that’s what he was there for. Sheila E. was on percussion!

    • Soni says:

      Travis was playing in the band during some musical numbers, and Kourtney was his +1.

    Rachel looked fabulous, but she was interviewed in the Dolby right before it started and the camera angle did not give a great view of her dress. All I could see was the sheer over the boob and it gave me horrible Gwyneth goth dress flashbacks for a moment. For being one of the youngest presenters of the night, she was exceptionally polished and did a great job.

  3. Southern Fried says:

    Yes I wish Wanda was the only presenter. She and her wife are a stunning couple. The color of Regina’s gown is ick. Amy’s gown is the best I’ve ever seen on her.

  4. Mimi says:

    Rachel is soooo pretty! I love this look! I want that choker

  5. girl_ninja says:

    Regina looked amazing and that muted color against her skin is gorgeous. Rachel looked lovely as well, she is such a beauty and so petite too.

  6. Mimi says:

    Amy looks great imo! Her comments after the will slap killed me. “Did I miss something” 🤣🤣🤣

  7. Miranda says:

    Rachel looked beautiful, but think the fit of the dress could’ve been better. Not that it needed to be like, sewn-into-it tight or anything, but she’s so petite and small-boned that draping like that can come across as somewhat baggy if it’s not just right. Maybe a result of it being a last-minute thing? I’m not mad at it by any stretch, and I loved the simple jewelry, hair, and makeup — all very appropriately youthful.

  8. MsIam says:

    All three are a miss for me.

  9. Margot says:

    All that fuss just for that?

  10. lucy2 says:

    I love Rachel’s look, even though I have never liked the sheer skirt/underwear trend. I love the draping of it, she looks great.
    I love Regina’s and she looks gorgeous, but I don’t love the color.

  11. AmB says:

    Sorry, Rachel’s is very 2017 and she didn’t need to look that thirsty.

  12. KLO says:

    Regina Hall is 51????!!!!!!! i thought she was something like 33. Oh wow. She totally gives off the vibe of a thirty-ish, flirty-ish lady.

  13. Coco says:

    Regina dress look great, but I agree another color like jade green would have been amazing on her.

    • Keats says:

      Agree. She looks beautiful and I think she’s pulling off the color, but I wish it had been almost any other color

  14. Ally says:

    The rumors going around about Rachel not being invited until the last minute get more & more interesting every day! If they are true she needs to get it together before she ruins her career.

  15. AnneL says:

    I think Rachel looks amazing. I love her hair and jewelry and she really knows how to pose for the camera. Maybe it’s all the theater training, since not all actors are good at that.

  16. Christine says:

    I thought she looked absolutely gorgeous, but I also thought she was Lucy Hale, so….maybe I am not a great judge.

  17. Eloisa says:

    Rachel Zegler gives me Lea Michele vibes and is not an accomplished, Latin community don’t like her. Problematic snow White story already have detractors like Peter Dinklage.
