Every Academy Awards red carpet is a fashion show, but not every fashion show is an Oscars night, and the 2022 Oscars red carpet once again proved it. From fancy cars to extravagant outfits to sparkly gemstones, the 94th Academy Awards was a sight to behold and an evening to remember. Every red carpet look sported a diamond bracelet, minimalist earrings, or multi-coloured gem rings adorning each finger.
A star-studded affair, the event flashed with public figures and household names like Jessica Chastain and Kristen Stewart. Dolby Theatre’s entrance was glittering with jewels, camera flashes, sophisticated dresses, and elegant tuxedos. Photographers were in position, ready to take a hundred pictures of every celebrity who greeted the carpet in a hundred different poses. Media outlets were documenting the evening and curating lists of all the 2022 Oscars outfits from every angle.
The stunning host Wanda Sykes astounded everyone with her glamorous jewels. Her oval diamond earrings moved in rhythm with her white pantsuit. Fan-favorite Michelle Jones-Watson, played by Zendaya, stunned everyone in her white crop top and silver flowing skirt. Her soft updo hairstyle and smokey silver makeup stole the spotlight, and her diamond viper bracelets and earrings crowned her the queen of the red carpet.
The internet was blowing up with searches regarding celebrity outfits and jaw-dropping accessories that started their own trend. Some of the accessories were so remarkable; many argued they deserved their own Oscars category. Every ensemble that graced the evening delivered a fashion statement, from Tiffany Haddish’s stud earrings to the Bailey sisters’ bold outfits. If a piece of jewelry catches your eye, you can rest assured you will find it in Diamondrensu’s catalog!
2022 Oscars: Dresses, Tuxedos, and Gemstones Galore
Without gushing about the charming Jessica Chastain, one cannot talk about the 2022 Academy Awards. The beautiful Eyes of Tammy Faye actress greeted the Oscars red carpet in a gorgeous purple gown paired with sparkly earrings and multiple rings decorating her hands. Her face was glowing with subtle makeup that complimented her sequin gown. That night, another celebrity was on the red carpet with her—her dazzling earrings, studded with the king of gemstones, diamonds.
Jennifer Garner made her Academy Awards return with style and elegance. Known as the legend of the fashion world, Garner made the red carpet her runway in a red, off-shoulder gown. She walked the carpet with the confidence of a professional in her Sophia Webster platforms. Jennifer Garner completed her look with diamond earrings, black enamel, and a white-gold wrist piece drenched in rubies that looked like an extension of her dress.
After four years, Garner returned to the red carpet, with her last appearance in 2018. She knocked on the 2018 Oscars’ door in a royal blue gown paired with a body-clinging corset and flowing cape that made a train. She enhanced her look with matching shoes, jewelry, and hair styled in side waves, reminiscent of the retro Hollywood era.
It is impossible to match Tiffany Haddish’s energy when she unleashes it on the red carpet. The event’s glamor instantly shot up when she stepped on the carpet. The Carmichael Show star wore a custom-made green gown paired with a matching necklace and stunning earrings. The comedian customized her gown with silver sequins sitting securely on her fitting and tightly hanging train. Tiffany Haddish’s off-shoulder green dress became a hit on the internet, especially with stud earrings.
Aunjanue Ellis made headlines for two reasons on the 2022 Oscars red carpet. Not only was her gliding skirt a showstopper, but her outfit was also a special tribute to her mother. The King Richard star wanted to dress up as a nod to her mother, and Versace honored her wish. Aunjanue Ellis looked lovely in a flared skirt dripping in orange waves and a unique flowing design. Her dress had the phrase “Jax Baby” written on the left shoulder—short for her mother’s name, ‘Jacqueline,’ and the ‘baby’ stood for Ellis being her daughter. She wore beautiful gemstones to give her ensemble a final touch.
Venus and Serena Williams
The William sisters serve flawlessly both on and off-court! The tennis champions always came to play and treated the 2022 Oscars red carpet like a tennis match. The athletes, who are King Richard’s executive producers, won the pre-show event walking the red carpet in head-turning dresses. Venus bedazzled everyone in a custom-made gown with a plunging neckline. She accessorized her look with coordinating silver cuffs and earrings. Venus styled her hair in a high pony that complimented her light, natural makeup.
Like her sister, Serena was also dressed in a custom-made plunging pink dress. She paired the gown with black floral prints on the shoulders, matching the color with black lace gloves. The other half of the championship-winning sister duo kept her hairdo elegant in a sleek bob-cut. Her blonde hair was neatly tucked behind her ears, matching her shimmering eye makeup and lipstick.
Not only did Demi Singleton make a statement playing Serena Williams in King Richard, but she also dominated the red carpet. The 15-year-old actress made her first-ever Academy Awards appearance in a lilac Miu Miu dress covered in beads. Like her co-star Aunjanue Ellis, Demi also mastered the art of walking the red carpet in gorgeous white heels that perfectly matched her lilac gown. She stole the show in the strapless dress that reflected her youth and elegance. Demi wore her hair in a sleek, tight bun accentuated by the dangling gemstones on her ears.

The 2022 Oscars was not Kristen Stewart’s first Academy Awards appearance, but her ensemble still carried the same element of surprise and awed everyone as her first appearance did. The Spencer star again proved her fashion taste in a short formalwear suit. Her 94th Academy Awards suit comprises black shorts and a black suit jacket. Stewart opted for black and white attire as she paired the jacket with a black satin coat and a white, nearly unbuttoned shirt.
The Twilight actress accessorized herself with black high heels and wavy hair swept to one side. She donned pearl gemstones around her neck, strung in a necklace. Her eyes looked chic in a pink eyeshadow that matched her nails, painted nude.
Chlöe x Halle
In their chart-topping hit, Chlöe x Halle tell you to “do it,” and that is precisely what they did on the red carpet. The singer-duo stepped on the red carpet, looking bold and chic. The Bailey sisters looked drop-dead gorgeous in outfits that accentuated forms.
The older Bailey sister sported a deep purple gown with a bust-length thigh slit and beautiful dangling earrings. Her Smokey purple eye makeup fit right in with her dress.
On the other hand, Halle appeared in a bright turquoise gown. The singer, who plays Ariel in the 2023 adaptation of the fairy tale The Little Mermaid, wore a one-piece dress, with the top half resembling a bikini top and the bottom half flowing like a ball gown. Her minimalistic makeup and nude lipstick perfectly contrasted with her bright ensemble.
Like her character in the movie West Side Story, Anita, a fashion enthusiast, Ariana is, evidently, a fashion lover off-screen too. She looked glamorous on the red carpet, donning a Valentino pantsuit. Pantsuits are buzzing these days. They represent confidence, charm, and power, and Ariana pulled it off with style and charisma that it is hard to believe the 94th Academy Awards was her Oscars debut.
Instead of signature red carpet outfits like dresses and gowns, DeBose posed for the cameras in a three-piece red pantsuit. She dressed in red from top to bottom, with the wide-leg pants fitting snugly on her legs. The hot-red bra top rested comfortably, with a red cape woven around her elbows. Even though the long pants hid her heels, her red platform heels appeared now and then. Ariana wrapped her ensemble with black eye shadow, neutral makeup, and a diamond necklace.
Maddie first had the world fawning over her as she danced her way into everyone’s hearts in Dance Moms at only eight years old. She again had the world sing her praises during the 2022 Oscars. The dancer stunned the internet when she made her red cacarpet-debutn a beautiful Giambattista Valli dress. The West Side Story actress showed up at Dolby Theatre in an elegant strapless black ball gown paired with a regal front and back bow.
The former reality show star accessorized her look with various gemstones—a shimmering necklace, shiny bracelet, sophisticated studs, and two rings. Her red nail polish delivered a flawless black and red combination with her ballroom gown. Maddie’s makeup was minimal, perfectly complimenting her entire ensemble with nude lipstick and light blush. She wore her hair in wavy curls, styled in a comfortable bun.
The 2022 Oscars was a colorful event. From dark and bright dresses to minimalistic makeup and sparkly gemstones, the evening was full of excitement and a flurry of snapshots. If you, too, enjoy dressing up like your favorite stars, Diamondrensu has an excellently curated selection for you!
