Geena Davis and the Oscars
Geena Davis is an Academy Award winning actress. In addition to her performance in Thelma and Louise, she has been an advocate for gender equality in Hollywood. She is also the founder of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, which educates industry leaders about gender bias.
Davis attended the Academy Awards last year in a stunning Romona Keveza dress. It featured a French net lattice embroidered ballgown skirt, a sequined V-neck bodice, and over 85 carats of Chopard diamonds. Her costume was the talk of the water cooler.
Another Oscars dress that has caught the eye of fashion buffs is Uma Thurman’s lavender Prada gown. This dress cost a cool $30k in services and materials, and became a fashion sensation in the process. Several fashion bloggers and vloggers are lauding it as the hottest look of the night. While other stars sported their usual looks, the gown certainly got the most attention on the red carpet.
Other notable Oscars dresses included Bjork’s swan dress, Cher’s Bob Mackie, and Lizzy Gardiner’s American Express Card ensemble. These are just a few of the more memorable looks from the past decade. However, there are some that are still remembered for all the wrong reasons.
The first Oscars were held at Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in 1929. At that time, 270 people were invited to the awards ceremony. After the ceremony was over, the winners were announced via newsreel, radio, and newspaper. Aside from celebrities, a number of notable figures were present, including Joan Rivers, who was the first fashion reporter. As award season wore on, more and more fashion houses began to court celebrities, inviting them to their shows and hosting nominees in their hospitality suites. Eventually, these brands took over the luxury hotel in Los Angeles for a weekend and invited the nominees to attend. Some of the most coveted red carpet dresses over the years have become part of our cultural history.
One of the most important red carpet moments was the moment the world learned of Geena Davis’ first Oscar. She had been nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Thelma and Louise. Not only did she earn her first award, but she also received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award. During the awards, Davis gave a speech about her work and gender equality in the industry.
