The Oscars 2024 can be called the night of ample welcome drama, history-making wins, and above all, jaw-dropping outfits from some of the most well-known and skilled performers in Hollywood.

While presenters Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt jokingly argued about Barbenheimer, the famed professional wrestler and actor, John Cena, walked naked onstage for a renowned footwear brand. Vanessa Hudgens, the lovely actress, announced her pregnancy as she is expecting her first child with her husband Cole Tucker. Ryan Gosling, in a vibrant pink suit, gave a hilarious and cute performance on I’m Just Ken. At the ceremony, Billie Eilish performed her Oscar-nominated hit, ‘What Was I Made For?’ and received a standing ovation from the crowd. The team members of Godzilla Minus One showed up at the big night in coordinating monstrous footwear that featured heels in the shape of claws. As these were just a few instances of how entertaining and happening the night was, one thing can be clearly said— this was just the beginning.

From one of the best movies ever made, Poor Things, Emma Stone received the Oscar for Actress in a Leading Role. Simply ecstatic, she gave a sweet shoutout to her husband and her daughter while concluding her winning speech. Accepting the Actor in a Supporting Role award for his performance in Oppenheimer, Robert Downey Jr gave a touching speech.

In fact, it was raining Oscars for these two movies, where Nolan’s Oppenheimer led the way in categories like directing, Actor in a Leading Role, Cinematography, Film Editing, Actor in a Supporting Role, Original Score, and Best Picture. Lanthimos’ Poor Things emerged victorious in Actress in a Leading Role, Production Design, Makeup and Hairstyling, and Costume Design.

Oppenheimer V/S Poor Things – Who Became the Winner in The Fashion Game?

Are you wondering “Who won the fashion game when it came to Oppenheimer and Poor Things?”? Well, discussed below are the looks of two people each from both films so that you can come to a decision yourself! Check it out!


Cillian Murphy

Giving a stellar performance and winning the Oscar in the Best Actor category, Cillian Murphy looked every bit charming in a conventional tuxedo that also displayed some modern twists like a sloppy bow tie and a pleated white shirt. The jazzy gold brooch just added to it. To enhance his look, he further accessorized with a silk black cummerbund and a classy watch. In the footwear department, ditching the iconic monk straps, oxfords, and loafers, the man decided to go for the patent leather boots. With steely blue eyes, rosy cheeks, and a bit of disheveled hair, his look was not only elegant but effortless as well.

Robert Downey Jr

At Oscars 2024, Robert Downey Jr wore an eye-gripping outfit. Decked up in a monochrome suit with a bolo tie, the 48-year-old simply killed in it. Wait, before you start missing formal neckwear in the attire, his wide-legged trouser is something that you won’t miss and which will keep your gaze fixed at the bottom. The cool shades and his million-dollar smile made the ensemble look even brighter.

Poor Things

Emma Stone

Often sporting Bella Baxter-inspired looks almost everywhere, with her dresses featuring giant leg-of-mutton and balloon-shaped sleeves, the star of the sex-charged gothic comedy took a break from it and instead went for something different this time for the Oscar. Her mint-green dress displayed an enormous peplum that perfectly helped to highlight her best features. Keeping her jewelry and makeup simple with open hair, she looked no less than an angel. The best part of the look? It’s definitely the 30.47-carat octagonal step-cut sapphire on the necklace that was further detailed with diamonds.

Holly Waddington

For Best Costume Design, Holly Waddington was all happy and smiles as she received the Oscar, and what added to the moment was her perfect look. Her full-length black and teal gown that gave off major vintage ball gown vibes featured a U-neckline and voluminous sleeves. She styled it with quirky large earrings that just complimented her entire look. Last but not least, that puffed hairdo and no-makeup look were the ideal finishing touch.
