The Best Dressed Stars At The 2020 Oscars

The 2020 Oscars were held on Sunday, Feb. 9, 2020, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, Calif. Famously known as Hollywood's biggest night, the awards ceremony marked the end of the 2020 awards season. Fortunately, however, your favorite celebrities proved they know how to dress for an occasion and go out with a fashionable bang.

As with any awards ceremony, the stars in attendance turned the red carpet into their personal catwalk for the evening, posing for photographers in designer ensembles most people only dream of wearing. The 92nd Academy Awards saw many a celeb opt for whites, blacks, and other neutral, earthy tones,  but some stars did stand apart from their fellow famous attendees by donning bright pops of color. 

From Natalie Portman's statement-making cape to Saoirse Ronan's one-of-a-kind, black and lavender Gucci gown, the 2020 Oscars attendees were truly sights to behold. Here's a look at the best dressed stars at the 2020 Oscars. 

Mindy Kaling channeled her Ocean's 8 character at the 2020 Oscars

Mindy Kaling wasn't nominated for any awards at the 92nd Academy Awards, but the Late Night star definitely stole the show with her bold and bright 2020 Oscars red carpet look. 

Kaling, who attended the ceremony as a presenter, looked like an absolute ray of sunshine in a one-shouldered, canary yellow Dolce & Gabbana gown; however, the real star of her Oscars outfit was an enormous Chopard diamond necklace. Speaking with Variety on the red carpet (via Page Six), Kaling revealed, "In the movie Ocean's 8 we stole a necklace that was identical to this one and I felt happy to wear it."

Florence Pugh made a colorful appearance at the 2020 Oscars

If Little Women's Amy March lived in the 21st century, we're pretty sure she would highly approve of the gown Florence Pugh donned during her Oscars debut. 

Pugh, whose portrayal of Amy March landed the star her first-ever Academy Award nomination, added a lovely pop of color to the 2020 Oscars red carpet, posing for photographers in a tiered turquoise gown from Louis Vuitton, as noted by The Hollywood Reporter. The Midsommar actress swept her blonde locks into a chic, knotted updo and accessorized with a diamond-and-ruby teardrop chocker necklace. 

While Pugh's famous boyfriend, Zach Braff, didn't walk the red carpet with her, he did take to his Instagram story to share a few behind-the-scenes shots of the actress getting ready for her big night, as reported by Page Six.

Charlize Theron was a total bombshell at the 2020 Oscars

Considering Charlize Theron earned an Academy Award nomination for her portrayal of former Fox News host Megyn Kelly in the 2019 flick Bombshell, it only made sense for the star to look like a complete bombshell at the 2020 Oscars. 

Theron arrived on the red carpet in a stunning black Dior ball gown, which featured a peplum waistline and asymmetrical neckline, as well as a thigh-high leg slit reminiscent of Angelina Jolie's iconic 2012 Oscars look (via Harper's Bazaar). With her blonde hair slicked back, Theron accessorized her Oscars look with a sparkling Tiffany & Co. necklace and Chopard stud earrings, as noted by The Hollywood Reporter

Janelle Monae dazzled on the red carpet at the 2020 Oscars

Before she opened the show by hyping up the 92nd Academy Awards crowd with an unforgettable musical number, Janelle Monae stunned on the 2020 Oscars red carpet in a dazzling hooded gown adorned with 168,000 Swarovski crystals. 

Monae's custom-made, metallic gown from the Ralph Lauren Collection took 600 hours to make — and, according to the star's stylist, Alexandra Mandelkorn, a team of four was required to carry the shimmering dress to Monae's dressing room, as reported by People. Talk about a dramatic look!

Natalie Portman made a statement with her 2020 Oscars look

Much like she did while presenting the award for best director at the 2018 Golden Globes, Natalie Portman continued her trend of speaking up for snubbed female directors at the 2020 Oscars. However, this time, Portman let her outfit do all of the talking, marking one of the things you probably didn't see on TV at the 2020 Oscars.

The Black Swan star arrived to the 92nd Academy Awards wearing a black Dior Haute Couture gown featuring a belted waist and intricate, gold leaf detailing. However, people couldn't stop talking about dramatic black cape Portman wore over her shoulders, which featured the last names of women who directed some of the most critically acclaimed movies of 2019 — all of whom were famously not nominated for the best director award at the 2020 ceremony, as noted by The Hollywood Reporter

Brie Larson looked pretty in pale pink at the 2020 Oscars

Captain Marvel herself — better known as Brie Larson — was in attendance at the 92nd Academy Awards, taking to the stage to introduce the ceremony's first female orchestral conductor, Eimear Noone, alongside Gal Gadot and Sigourney Weaver (via People). However, before making a memorable 2020 Oscars moment with two of Hollywood's most powerful women, Larson walked the red carpet looking like a real-life, sparkly superhero. 

The star arrived to the 92nd Academy Awards wearing a pale pink, crystal-encrusted Celine gown, as reported by Harper's Bazaar. Featuring a matching cape, Larson's look would have certainly made any superhero proud. 

Margot Robbie looked like royalty at the 2020 Oscars

While Margot Robbie ultimately didn't take home the best supporting actress award for her role in the 2019 hit movie Bombshell, we think the Aussie actress deserved an award for her 2020 Oscars look. 

Robbie stunned in a dark navy, vintage Chanel gown, featuring off-the-shoulder cuff sleeves, a plunging sweetheart neckline, and blue-and-gold jewel pendant (via Elle). Wearing her blonde locks in a dramatic side part and opting for a bold red lip, Robbie looked like total red carpet royalty. 

Saoirse Ronan stood out from the crowd at the 2020 Oscars

Among a sea of black, white, and other neutral tones, Saoirse Ronan's 2020 Oscars gown featured a welcome pop of color that set the star apart from the famous crowd. 

Ronan, who was nominated for the best actress award for her portrayal of Jo March in Greta Gerwig's Little Women, wore a custom Gucci gown to the ceremony, as reported bu Vogue. Featuring a plunging V-neck, ruffled gold bodice, and floor-sweeping, lavender skirt, Ronan proved she knows how to take a red carpet risk and totally pull it off. 

Cynthia Erivo looked angelic at the 2020 Oscars

The 92nd Academy Awards was a huge night for actress Cynthia Erivo, a first-time Oscars nominee with not one, but two nominations — one for best actress and another for best original song. And, with her red carpet look, Erivo proved she knows how to make a memorable debut. 

The Harriet star walked the 2020 Oscars red carpet in a flowing, white Atelier Versace gown, featuring sparkling silver embellishments, an asymmetrical neckline, and a thigh-high leg slit, as noted by Entertainment Tonight. She may not have gone home with an award, but Erivo's 2020 Oscars look will forever be one of our favorites.
