On the Podcast: The Best Dressed and Best Moments at the 2024 Oscars

Hollywood stars gathered in Los Angeles on Sunday night for the 96th Annual Academy Awards—which means that on Monday morning, bleary-eyed Vogue editors (namely Taylor Antrim, Vogue’s deputy editor, and Christian Allaire, Vogue’s senior fashion writer, who also compiles the Best Dressed list) piled into the podcast studio, armed—with opinions!—and ready to break down the best looks, best moments, and biggest upsets of the night.

Christian has been covering Lily Gladstone all awards season, so it is no surprise that he loved her custom Gucci look, which featured quill work by Indigenous artist Joe Big Mountain. “It’s indicative of her approach to pass the mic in her red carpet style to people in her community,” Christian said, and “Joe is the master of Indigenous quill work.” When it came to menswear, he and the whole team loved seeing Colman Domingo in Louis Vuitton (with his chic boots). Colman for president!

Carey Mulligan’s custom black and white Balenciaga was a Vogue favorite, and Chioma declared that Lupita Nyong’o’s color is pale blue (her stylist confirmed that the shade of her Armani Privé was, indeed, a nod to the hue she wore when she scooped up her best-supporting-actress Oscar in 2014). There was a lot of black on the red carpet, including Margot Robbie’s Barbie funeral-themed attire, so America Ferrera’s Barbie pink Versace was a pop of method fun. But it was Emma Stone’s mint green Louis Vuitton with a peplum, and her silver after-party dress, that garnered the most conversation. As Stone strode up to the stage to accept her award for best actress, she realized the back of her gown had broken. Despite the wardrobe malfunction, she managed to laugh it off, explaining, “I think it happened during ‘I’m Just Ken,’” referring to Ryan Gosling’s theatrical performance of the song earlier in the evening. With awards season now over, stylists and stars alike can take a moment to breathe—before prepping their Met Gala looks.
