In every awards season, there is one outstanding achievement that always wins. This year there was a clear leader. She can sing, she can act, she can dance, and Ariana DeBose’s Oscars 2022 look proves she can dress to.

Ariana DeBose is Breakout Star of the Year for her role as Anita in Steven Spielberg’s remake of Westside Story. She’s nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for the role and has already won BAFTA, Golden Globe and SAG awards for it, no small feat.

Anita was originally played by Hollywood veteran Rita Moreno, who took home the Oscar for the role in 1962. DeBose did an incredible job of honoring Moreno’s take on the role while adding her own fiery attitude — and she certainly carried that fire over to her look on tonight’s red carpet. Moreno joined Ariana for an iconic moment on the Oscars red carpet as the two stars embraced and posed for photos together.

Ariana DeBose swapped things out from a traditional dress and wore a fiery red pantsuit on the Oscars red carpet — a stunning choice for her Oscars debut. The pant suit consists of three parts: a scalloped bra top, wide-leg pants with crisp pleated trousers, and, most dramatically of all, a flowing red cape that drapes from her shoulders. The cape gives the floor-length effect of a dress and adds a feminine detail to the structured suit pants. If you look closely you can see very high heeled red platform shoes peeking out from the hem of her pants.

While DeBose’s outfit was light, she kept her makeup neutral with a soft smoky eye and natural lip color. Her short, spiky hair added a fun contrast to the look and is a fitting representation of the individuality DeBose brought to her role as Anita. It’s safe to say fans (including the Academy) are loving DeBose’s bold choices on screen and on the red carpet.

She completed the look with nothing less than diamonds. the Westside Story Star wore a dazzling choker of diamonds draped around her neck – a perfect combination with the deeply corrugated texture of her bodice. DeBose added simple teardrop earrings and stacked her wrist with them more Diamonds that glittered with every movement of the train of her cloak.

As DeBose walked the red carpet, she had a regal presence (her gorgeous dancer attitude certainly helps, too). The regal movement of her cape sets the stage for DeBose’s newly established rule in Hollywood. The actress has carved her own stage for a well-deserved rise to screen stardom. And while she’s finally being recognized by the film industry, DeBose has actually been around for quite some time.

If you keep thinking that Ariana DeBose looks familiar, it’s probably because you’ve seen her before. Before her award-winning Westside Story Performance in which DeBose performed Hamilton (on Broadway and Disney+), The Prom, Summer: The Donna Summer Musical and even a season of So you think you can dance. The actress is just getting started, so there will be plenty more Ariana DeBose red carpet moments (and wins!) to look forward to.
