Regina King has been delivering one legendary red carpet look after another this year, from her stunning Louis Vuitton look at the Golden Globes to gorgeous looks in shades of rust and poppy for the NAACP Image Awards and CDGA Awards by Oscar de la Renta and Christopher John Rogers respectively. On Hollywood's biggest night, King tapped Nicholas Guesquiere of Louis Vuitton once more, this time for a custom look that feels fairy tale-esque and dreamlike.
King's sky blue gown has a modern-day Cinderella feel, encrusted with crystals and featuring a plunging v-neckline with dramatic winged shoulders. The look feels more whimsical than anything King's worn this season, yet embraces the architectural details and curve-hugging silhouettes we expect from her on the red carpet. Given the playful nature of the silhouette, King kept the styling simple with a hint of edge, opting for a sleek bob, a steel blue smokey eye, and Forevermark jewels.
In speaking with Regina's stylists, Wayman and Micah, E! News report that Regina's gown "took 140 hours to make and is embroidered with over 62,000 sequins and 4,000 crystals." The duo also explained that Regina is always involved in the design process of her red carpet looks from start to finish, reviewing sketches, colours, design, and all the details before the look comes to fruition in the atelier and on the red carpet.
"We tell her our vision and what we want the story to be and then we build from there," they explained. "We approach it from a fashion standpoint and she approaches it from a technical standpoint with a director's eye."
