2019 Governors Awards: Saoirse Ronan in Emilia Wickstead

Posted on October 29, 2019

Looking back on the year a skosh prematurely, we have to say that the jumpsuit was probably the most pervasive red carpet trend of 2019. Ladystars aren’t feeling the gowns and the party dresses as much as they used to, and the fashion world has smartly responded by upping its jumpsuit game, offering a wider range of styles and interpretations of the form than anyone’s seen since its last big heyday forty years ago.

Case in point:


That is one head-turning jumpsuit. One of the tricks modern fashion has pulled off with the current jumpsuit trend is to render it in more and more upscale forms, giving some of them the sweep, drama and formality of a gown. This may, in our opinion, come just up to the line of being overdesigned, but like so many of the attendees here, she’s working to make a strong impression on the Academy. This is a rather unforgettable look that gets the job done for her. We’re not a hundred percent feeling the hair, but it’s a go-to style of hers that tends to suit her.
