At a pandemic-era Oscars, it was never going to be business as usual on the red carpet.

But with a scaled back ceremony, organizers tried their very best to recapture the glamour that the showpiece event is known for. And the stars in attendance did their part, too, wearing an array of dramatic golds, reds and daring cutouts.

Usually held in February, the Oscars were pushed back by over two months in the hopes that loosening Covid-19 restrictions would allow for a more lavish affair. Indeed, with attendees not required to wear masks for the cameras, and eveningwear from some of fashion’s biggest names on display, there were glimpses of normalcy on the red carpet at the end of a largely virtual awards season.

The 93rd annual Academy Awards took place across two LA venues: the Dolby Theatre and Union Station, where

Having lived in Paris and New York as well as her native Uruguay, designer Gabriela Hearst started her namesake luxury fashion and accessories brand in 2015 in the US. Her star has risen steadily since she won the 2017 Woolmark International Prize for Womenswear. In January 2019, luxury giant LVMH invested in the brand, allowing Hearst’s label to push its presence more globally.

Most recently, Hearst made high-fashion headlines when she was named new artistic director of the French house Chloé. Hearst has had a sustainable approach to fashion since the early stages, which no doubt has much to do with growing up on her family’s sheep ranch in Uruguay, a property she still looks after today. Beautiful craftsmanship, sustainable practices and quality everlasting materials are as central to the label as the effortlessly cool look she’s nailed down.

Based in New York, the label
