After a year that was rather devoid of red carpet fashion shows, this year’s Oscars was a nice return (if a little off kilter) to the glitz and glamour of Hollywood awards ceremonies. The diverse list of nominees reflected the progressive social change 2020 bought the world, and while there were a few upsets during the ceremony, this year also bought some historic moments, with the likes of Chloe Zhao’s Best Director win (the first woman of colour Best Director winner and second female winner ever), Yuh-Jung Youn’s win for Best Supporting Actress (first Korean winner for the category) and Best Makeup and Hairstyling winner’s Mia Neal and Jamika Wilson, who became the first Black women to win the award.
