Nominated for Best Supporting Actress, the Borat star graced viewers in a stunning Alice in Wonderland-inspired gown. “This awards season has been fun and interesting,” Maria’s stylist told InStyle. “Since the beginning of this long award season, she and I wanted to go romantic. When I saw this extraordinary Dior gown, I found the romance and edginess we were going for. I see this gown as more of an art piece. The details, the sense of humor, and the harlequin detail were just beautiful!”

The detailed number features a satin dress with light-blue pipeline sleeves and a grey pleated skirt that accents her right side. Emma paired the bold look with an even bolder shoe—a pair of black chunky combat boots. A far cry from the mismatched influences of her gown, Emma chose a young Leonardo DiCaprio for the inspiration behind her hair. The star’s stylist told Vanity Fair, “She wants to be Leonardo DiCaprio, or she wants to be Brad Pitt, or she wants to be David Beckham—generally those strong male influences from the ’90s. Her hair goes that way, and she gets into that character.” Iconic.

Daniel may have secured the award for Best Supporting Male Actor, but his biggest triumph of the night was attending the event in Louis Vuitton pajamas, which he accessorized with Cartier jewels. The glamorous nighttime look caused quite a stir on Twitter; some deemed the three-piece coordinate a #sundaynightmood while others felt they couldn’t take the actor seriously. What do you think? Has the Judas and the Black Messiah star taken WFH culture too far?
