Oscars 2023 Fashion Prediction: Trends We Expect To See At The Red Carpet
Oscars 2023 Fashion Prediction: Trends We Expect To See At The Red Carpet

Will the Oscars red carpet be replete with glitz and glamour this year. Or are we being too hopeful?

This year’s award season kicked off with an element we’d been sorely missing since the previous two years— unbridled glamour. From the VMAs and the Grammys to the Golden Globes, the SAG and Critics Choice Awards, 2023 heralded warm tidings for red carpet fashion and how. Case in point: Cardi B’s electric blue gown, Lizzo’s bright orange Dolce & Gabbana ensemble, Harry Styles’ sequin pantsuit, Michelle Yeoh’s Schiaparelli black dress with golden sequin fringes, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez’s blue bow dress, and Billy Porter’s queen pink tuxedo gown.


Metallics made a major comeback on the red carpet especially in women’s fashion. Scores of celebrities were papped flaunting metallic gowns at the Baftas, including the likes of Anya Taylor-Joy, Cynthia Erivo, Sheila Atim, and Lily James. Men’s red carpet-fashion has witnessed a major shift as well. A few years ago, the majority of male celebrities played by the rulebook and turned out in classic black and white tuxedos for red carpets.


Times are changing, however, and there has been a visible inclusion of vivid hues. Anderson Paak’s floral Gucci pantsuit, Maneskin’s velvet suit, Machine Gun Kelly’s silver Dolce and Gabbana look, Andrew Grafield’s tangerine suit, Eddie Redmayne’s white YLS bow shirt look, and Diego Calva’s coffee brown velour tuxedo not only reaffirm the same but were also some of the winning looks that set the sartorial bar high.


That said, celebrities are known to up their fashion game for the Oscars. While it’s a challenge to replicate the extravagance of the MET Gala, it’s often far from disappointing. Speaking of which, Elsa Schiaparelli and Indian designer Gaurav Gupta conjured up some truly breathtaking designs at the Paris Couture Fashion Week, and we’re hopeful to see history repeat itself at the Oscars too. “This edition of Oscar we can expect a lot of non-mainstream designers. A lot of niche brands. Versace just did a show in LA so I’m expecting to spot quite a few of Versace custom on the red carpet. Y2K glamour is still en vogue so alot inspiration from that era could be seen too,” says Mumbai based designer Aniket Satam of Pink Porcupines.


Deepika Padukone, who will be gracing the ceremony as a presenter this year, is expected to turn out in Louis Vuitton, as she recently took over as their brand ambassador. Most male celebrities’ first choices for a red carpet look are Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, and Dior, but there’s also an inkling that the runway will witness a volley of interesting looks from Zegna and YSL.


Sustainability is also expected to be a major theme at this year’s Academy Awards. “Sustainability has been bubbling in the undercurrent, waiting to burst into mainstream for quite some time now. The movement has slowly but certainly gained some steam. And I think sustainability will mark its presence on the red carpet too this time,” says designer Karrtik Dhingra. Overall, here is a brief highlight of some of the major trends we expect to see on the Oscars 2023 Red Carpet:


Bold Colours: Vibrant and bold colours will be a popular trend on the 2023 Oscar red carpet. We expect to see shades of blue, green, pink, and yellow across gowns and suits.


Statement Sleeves: Sleeves with dramatic shapes and details, such as puffed or oversized shoulders, are also likely to make a statement on the red carpet.


Metallics: Metallic dresses, suits, and accessories are expected to be a popular trend for the 2023 Oscars with shimmery gold, silver, and bronze fabrics to create eye-catching looks.


Sheer and Cutouts: We expect sheer fabrics and cutouts to continue to be a trend for the 2023 Oscars. Gowns with sheer panels or cutouts in unexpected places could help create a sexy yet sophisticated look.


Sustainable Fashion: With an increased focus on sustainability and ethical fashion, we may see more celebrities wearing eco-friendly and sustainable fashion choices on the red carpet. This could include dresses made from recycled materials, vintage pieces, or sustainable fabrics like bamboo or organic cotton.
