2021 Academy Museum Of Motion Pictures Opening Gala

Following her previous outing, Emilia Jones and so many other celebs hit the green carpet on Saturday(September 25th) for the opening gala of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in LA.

Regina Hall wore a playful JULIEN MACDONALD SPRING 2020 semi see-through, mint fringe dress which was styled with STUART WEITZMAN sandals. I am not loving the dress but Regina looked good in it. 

Nicole Kidman posed alongside Regina wearing a RODARTE SPRING 2022 embellished floral dress which was accessorized with a black clutch and GIUSEPPE ZANOTTI heels. I am not loving the hair or the shoes with this dress. I feel like she needed a sleeker hairstyle and simple black sandals. 

Thuso Mbedu was easily one of my top favorites in this custom PRADA gown. There was nothing that I would change or add because this was flawless head to toe. 

Ava DuVernay sticked to her usually silhouette, wearing a GRETA CONSTANTINE black long sleeve microfiber gown with sequin and mixed textile patchwork. She looked beautiful nonetheless.

Lady Gaga wore a custom SCHIAPARELLI COUTURE black velvet with a baby blue peau de soie stole. She looked beautiful but her hair did not. 

Ruth Negga was beautiful in a Vintage ARNOLD SCASSI gown from SHRIMPTON COUTURE which was accessorized with JENNIFER MEYER jewelry and STUART WEITZMAN heels. 

Regina King suited up in Louis Vuitton RESORT 2022 which was accessorized with a clutch from the fashion house and ALEXANDRE BIRMAN pumps. This suit looks so much better on Regina than it did on the model. The idea of this look is perfection but it's unfortunate that the jacket did fit well. 

Tessa Thompson worked a playful CHRISTIAN DIOR FALL 2021 COUTURE nude feather gown was accessorized with EFFY jewelry and STUART WEITZMAN sandals. I like the idea of a belt, just not that one. Her beauty look was flawless and that lip color added a nice compliment to her overall look. 

Abigail Breslin wore a pink PAMELLA ROLAND PRE-FALL 2020 cape gown which was accessorized with a SOPHIA WEBSTER clutch and sandals. I really like this gown but I feel like it's more suited for someone on the taller side. Also it looks slightly tight on her but it was a great choice for the evening. 

Andrea Riseborough looked lovely wearing a GIORGIO ARMANI PRIVE SPRING 2021 COUTURE strapless gown, accessorized with NEIL LANE & ANITA KO jewelry. 

Adriana Lima served up some leg in a Bespoke NICOLAS JEBRAN gold pleated strapless gown. I like this gown but I am not sure about the color on her. 

Diana Silvers wore a CELINE nude pleated sequin dress and to avoid a wash out, a dark red lip was added to her beauty look. 

Angela Bassett wore a ELIE SAAB FALL 2019 COUTURE black and gold embroidered, wide-leg jumpsuit. The neckline was shorten on Angela's jumpsuit which worked in her favor but I am missing the belt. 

Anna Kendrick wore a DOLCE & GABBANA black strapless, tulle layered gown. I feel like we have seen so many versions of this and it doesn't excite. 

Natasha Lyonne always takes fashion risk and this SEBASTIAN GUNAWAN sequin embroidered & feather dress proves that. It looks more like an ice skater's costume. 

Camila Morrone wore a LOUIS VUITTON SPRING SPRING 2021 black crop jacket and black knee length pants. I like the idea of this take on a classic suit but I still wish the pants were long. 

Cher marches to the beat of her own style drum which is why everyone likes her style. I am not crazy about this DOLCE & GABBANA SPRING 2021 look but this is Cher and so is this look. 

Gabrielle Union wore a ALEXANDRE VAUTHIER FALL 2021 COUTURE black bodysuit with a sheer chiffon overlay & crystal neckline. Sexy and gorgeous, that's all. 

Halle Berry wore a ETRO wore a ETRO FALL 2020 black embroidered, puffy sleeve mini dress. I am missing the belt here. 

Issa Rae utilized the split on her ALEXANDRE VAUTHIER FALL 2021 blue crystal-embroidered v-neck dress which was accessorized with GISMONDI jewelry and STUART WEITZMAN sandals. 

Jamie Lee Curtis wore a ALEX PERRY SPRING 2021 black dress with padded shoulder and a knot detail waist. I like that she added the necklace because it liven up her look but I wish that the shoulder pads were taken out. 

Jennifer Hudson rocked a playful ALEXANDRE VAUTHIER FALL 2021 blue crystal-embroidered fringe mini dress which was accessorized with KALLATI jewelry and TAMARA MELLON heels. 

June Smollett looked beautiful wearing a GIORGIO ARMANI PRIVE SPRING 2009 high-low hem gown which was accessorized with CATHY WATERMAN jewelry and CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN pumps. However the top looks a little too tight on the bust.

Kate Hudson wore a LOUIS VUITTON RESORT 2022 dress which featured a voluminous draped, navy beaded top and a black leather mini skirt. This is a difficult piece but I prefer it more on Kate than the model. I think her hair should have been pulled behind-the-ears though. 

Emila Jones rocking her second LOUIS VUITTON look in a row but this time, she snagged a look from the RESORT 2022 collection. The top feels more like a costume piece to me. 

Katy Perry looked great in this LOUIS VUITTON RESORT 2022 black shiny leather dress and Orlando Bloom wore a black velvet tuxedo. I don't know what made him wear those boots because they don't go here. 

Laverne Cox dramatic posing in a JOHANNA JOHNSON pleated cape gown with GARO SPARO gloves and the lip color perfectly complimented her look. 

Eva Longoria looked simply pretty wearing a VITO ZERBINATO floor length dress.

Lisa Love look great wearing a GUCCI RESORT 2020 black embellished, belted dress. 

Lydia Hearst cradled her growing baby bump wearing a RAISA VANESSA FALL 2021 cobalt blue strapless column dress. 

Maggie Gyllenhaal wore a white one long sleeve belted STELLA MCCARTNEY dress and I wish it was longer to hide those shoes that she is wearing. 

Laura Dern wore a black sequin dress by ROLAND MOURET and it was not a good look at all. 

MJ Rodriguez looked pretty in a BRANDON MAXWELL RESORT 2022 silver strapless column dress which was accessorized with ANA KHOURI jewelry and ANDREA WAZEN sandals. 

Sarah Paulson wore a GIORGIO ARMANI PRIVE COUTURE black beaded dress which was accessorized with a TYLER ELLIS clutch. This is a go to silhouette for Sarah but I don't find it to be a flattering piece. 

Holland Taylor also wore GIORGIO ARMANI PRIVE COUTURE and she looked great in this pink suit. 

Marlee Matlin looked pretty in a GIORGIO ARMANI PRIVE COUTURE black velvet, beaded dress. My only small quibble is that I wish her hair was completely off-the-shoulders.  

Sophie Hunter looked pretty wearing a nude beaded CHRISTIAN DIOR SPRING 2020 COUTURE while Benedict Cumberbatch kept things simple in a classic GIORGIO ARMANI suit. 

Olivia Rodrigo wore a custom black strapless, slit detail dress from the SAINT LAURENT SPRING 2020 collection with pockets which she utilized. The neckline is different & unique but that is a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happening. 

Jenna Dewan wore a CHANEL PRE-FALL 2021 black tweed romper with black lace leggings underneath. You know, I don't like it. The necklace is very distracting. 

Tiffany Haddish wore a CHRISTIAN SIRIANO SPRING 2022 black one-shoulder, structured top with ivory trousers. On the runway, the top was shown with yellow trousers which I think she could have pulled off but she still looked good.
