These Ladies Make the Red Carpet Worth Watching

It’s so refreshing to see Rooney Mara, Alicia Vikander, and Cate Blanchett push the sartorial envelope

There’s only one place where beaded mermaid gowns, questionable cutouts, and sequins galore can make their respective appearances without rebuke. (Well, sort of.) That place is, bien sûr, the awards show red carpet.

Between this past weekend’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, the Golden Globes earlier in January, and the generally snooze-y state of red-carpet dressing, we’re left starving for some real Hollywood glamour.

But for every “naked” dress or body-con look, we have Rooney Mara giving us metaphorical life in unostentatious creations from Givenchy and Valentino. For every ill-fitting strapless confection, we have Alicia Vikander stunning in Louis Vuitton. And then there is the singular Cate Blanchett, who has yet to miss a sartorial beat and can always be counted on to supply elegance in spades.

The Academy Awards will air on February 28, during the heat of the Fall 2016 shows. So as cinema’s best and brightest flock to L.A., here’s hoping that the red-carpet scene will yield more thought-provoking, envelope-pushing fashion moments than the tropes of yesteryear.
