Oscars 2023 Style File: TO LESLIE Star Andrea Riseborough in Alexander McQueen and Armani Privé

Posted on March 14, 2023

As we noted the one and only time we covered her during awards season, it’s a real shame that Best Actress nominee Andrea Riseborough didn’t get more chances to strut the season’s red carpets, because she’s not only one of the more interesting dressers among celebrities, but she’s chameleonlike in the results. She proved that again on Oscar night by delivering two distinct looks, each of which felt playful and whimsical in their own way, but seemed to highlight different sides of her.



She was done in by that horrid beige carpet, but this is a very pretty dress in a very classic style that seems to work all the better for her because of the styling. The dress says “prestige actress” but the hair, makeup and jewelry say “artist.”

If there was anyone among the nominees willing to serve up pure Pierrot realness, it could only be her. This feels like a tribute to the very idea of performing; a celebration of the art of acting itself in dress form. She looks like a Picasso harlequin come to life, lending it a specificity and sense of artistry that feels extremely well-suited to her. She seems to take a conceptual approach to her red carpet choices and we really hope she gets some high-profile gigs out of this nomination just so we can see more of this kind of self-expression.
