Tonight, the 2023 Academy Museum Gala kicks off in Los Angeles, California. The annual event—which is always heavy on the star power!—aims to raise funds for the museum’s exhibitions and public programming. This evening, the gala will also honor special celebrity guests such as Meryl Streep, Michael B. Jordan, Oprah Winfrey, and Sofia Coppola, all of whom will be acknowledged for their individual contributions to cinema and storytelling.
Before the gala unfolds inside, however, the star-studded red carpet is sure to deliver some breathtaking fashion moments to dissect. Serving as a precursor to the glitzy awards season that begins in January, the Academy Gala always brings out Hollywood A-listers donning their finest evening attire, from suits to gowns. After all, the step and repeat has a history of delivering memorable style hits: Last year, for one, Amal Clooney turned heads in a strapless green Del Core gown; Hailey Bieber also chose an ab-baring Saint Laurent gown, while Taylor Russell chose a plunging Alexander McQueen halter gown in a vampy leather finish.
What will tonight’s celebrity crowd deliver on the fashion front? Only one way to find out: Below, see all of the best looks from the 2023 Academy Museum Gala, as they are updated in real time.
