1. Blake Lively 2022 Met Gala

While the Gilded Glamour theme of the 2022 Met Gala merely guided some looks, Blake Lively was able to capture Gilded Glamour in her own unique way. Stunning audiences with her Versace gown, inspired by the Statue of Liberty, Lively aimed to symbolize the breakthrough of architecture in NYC during the Gilded Age. At first, the length of the dress was bundled into a large bow, which was then untied. The length of the dress was unveiled right there on the Met steps. Extending far past her feet, this breathtaking blue and gold gown truly captured the essence of NYC. Details such as the 25 jewels on Lively’s crown symbolizing the 25 windows on Lady Liberty’s crown prove this look was not only deeply calculated, but accentuated Lively’s features, ultimately flattering her very well.

2. Lady Gaga BAFTA Awards 2022

Lady Gaga truly encapsulated the epitome of elegance with her look at the 2022 BAFTA Awards. Complimenting a long emerald gown with emeralds and diamonds brought this look to life. The emerald contrasted with her bright blonde hair, creating the perfect color scheme and balance. Many red carpet looks seem to be drastic, and while this was far from simple, it was just enough to give an exotic and expensive look without completely jumping out.

3. Wesley Snipes Oscars 2022

In the 2022 Oscars, Wesley Snipes wowed audiences in BOGARD by MikeB, a unique and fitted purple suit. Contrary to the typical tuxedo that most men wear to red carpet events, this interesting cut and color highlighted a more creative look. Complementing his overall stature, it featured purple shorts over purple leggings, and a fitted jacket on top. The monochrome purple color brought out new and interesting depth to the look, and while it was different, it effectively highlighted new fashion ideas for men. Bringing creativity and intricacy to the red carpet, this look gave audiences a glimpse into variety on the red carpet.

Bringing simplicity yet beauty to the 2022 Oscars, Lily James wore a breathtaking Versace gown. Featuring a high-leg slit and pink lace all over, this gown captured the essence of a whimsical outfit. Draped in pink tulle and flowers, this look is not only whimsical but also stunning among the many obscure red carpet outfits. The pink was a perfect choice to accentuate James’s brown hair, but also a way to show the intricate details of the dress without being too overwhelming.

5. Anne Hathaway Cannes Film Festival 2022

Anne Hathaway at the Cannes Film Festival in 2022 wore a beautiful Armani Privé dress. The look was a long baby pink pencil dress with a shawl over her arms, simple yet complementary to Hathaway’s skin tone and hair color. Accessorized with a large purple diamond, this dress was elegant yet eye-catching. This look might not necessarily be deemed creative enough for the red carpet; however, it draws attention through its simplicity and fit.
