The third annual Academy Museum Gala kicked off in Los Angeles Sunday night (December 3), and the biggest stars were in attendance, dressing to the nines! That is, except for a select few, whose style choices have landed them in our worst-dressed flop list. Sunday night’s event has been dubbed the Met Gala of the West, serving as a celebration of cinematic achievement as well as a fundraiser for the museum’s educational initiatives and public programming.
The Honorees of the Evening
Among the night’s honorees are Meryl Streep, Michael B. Jordan, Sofia Coppola, and Oprah Winfrey. Already a 3-time Oscar winner, Streep was honored with the Icon Award, given to those who have made a significant global impact with their career. Meanwhile, the Creed star took home the Vantage Award, which honors an artist or scholar challenging dominant narratives in cinema. Meanwhile, Coppola took home the Visionary Award for her innovations in cinema. Finally, Winfrey rounds out the group with the Pillar Award for her leadership and her support of the museum.
Though film is the center of the annual star-studded Gala, fashion is still a major focus. Much like the Met Ball, the Academy Museum Gala draws some of the world’s top fashion houses who dresses Hollywood’s elite. Valentino, Dior, Doce & Gabbana, Saint Laurent, Fendi, and Chanel are among some of the luxury brands that dressed the stars. The attendees included most of the Barbie cast, Zooey Deschanel, Zazie Beetz, Dua Lipa, Simu Liu, Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas, a few cast members from The Idol, Leonardo DiCaprio, Angela Bassett, some of the Oppenheimer cast, Michelle Williams, Hailey Bieber, Keke Palmer, Kendall Jenner, Rashida Jones, Selena Gomez, Lupita Nyong’o, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Zoë and Lenny Kravitz, and many more.
