Secret messages on the red carpet "Oscars – 2020"
It is not necessary to go up to the Oscar stage and deliver a speech, sometimes the images of celebrities speak much more about their position and attitude to a particular issue. We looked at which of the guests of the ceremony took this opportunity and drew attention to what excites them.
The most “talking” image this year was demonstrated by actress Natalie Portman. On the red carpet of the Academy Award, she appeared in a dress and cape Dior Couture, on which the names of women directors underestimated by film academics in different years were embroidered. Among them are the names of Lulu Van (“Farewell”), Greta Gerwig (“Little Women”), Lorin Skafarii (“Strippers”), Celine Syamma (“Portrait of a Girl on Fire”), Mariel Heller (“Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood”), Mati Diop (“Atlantic”), Melina Matsukas (“Queen and Slim”) and Alma Harel (“Sweetie”). Natalie Portman herself commented on this step without unnecessary emotions: "I just wanted to support women whose work deserves more attention and recognition."
After last year's release in a tuxedo dress from Billy Porter, no one expected anything traditional. The star of the series "Pose" did not disappoint expectations – he appeared on the red carpet in a couture dress from Briton Giles Deacon. He was inspired by the decoration of the Kensington Palace, which is home to the Dukes of Cambridge – William and Kate. According to the actor, his stylist Sam Rattel visited this place last year and decided to transfer the interiors of the domed hall of the palace to print skirts. But the upper part of the outfit referred to the gold columns from this hall and the legacy of the Roman Empire. “We just wanted to fantasize and connect a dark-skinned actor with the institution of the monarchy, which until recently was impossible to imagine,” said Rattel. “This is a story about our modern world, where there are fewer borders and stereotypes.”
The legend of the world of cinema Jane Fonda appeared on the stage of the film award "Oscar" in a burgundy dress, embroidered with beads, Elie Saab. Attentive fans immediately recognized it as an outfit from the red carpet of the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. The fact is that in a recent interview with the Foundation, it stated that it was stopping buying new clothes in order to show by its own example how to deal with climate changes on the planet. The only thing that distinguished these two images was the scarlet coat, which the actress took with her to the stage last night. This is the last item bought by the Foundation. “We don’t need more clothes. Our planet suffers from its production, we can use what we already have,” the actress often repeats during her public appearances.

Also, some viewers suggested that this Elie Saab dress was a kind of hint that the main award would be received by the film "Parasites" by South Korean director Pong Joon Ho. In May, he already won the Cannes Film Festival and this dress was first worn by the Foundation in Cannes. Whether it is a coincidence or not is unknown.
Actress Sirsha Ronan also showed a responsible attitude in choosing the attire for the ceremony. True, she came out to the public not in a vintage look, but sewn from the fabric that remained in the fashion house Gucci after creating her dress for the BAFTA award, which was held in London last week.

Oscar nominee Cynthia Erivo used her own nails to draw attention to the problems of equality in US history. On one arm of the Harriet drama star, one could see Vincent van Gogh's Starry Night painting, and on the other hand star navigation, with which Harriet Tabman, an American abolitionist and black rights activist, managed to escape from slave owners.
Director Spike Lee honored the memory of the recently deceased basketball player Kobe Bryant, who crashed in a helicopter on January 26th. His suit was made in purple and yellow colors – the colors of his Lakers club, the lapels of the jacket were decorated with numbers 2 and 4, and the back was number 24, under which the athlete played. Nike sneakers complemented the image of Spike Lee – Bryant also loved this model.
Costume designer Sandy Powell also used fashion to do good. She appeared on the red carpet in a pair of trousers, on which many celebrities left their autographs – after the ceremony, she will go to a charity auction.
