17 best dressed celebrities at the 2022 Governors Awards, from Margot Robbie’s Bottega Veneta gown and Michelle Yeoh’s neon yellow look, to The Crown actor Emma Corrin’s gender-bending ensemble
The 13th annual Governors Awards were held in Los Angeles on November 19, awarding achievements in the film industry. Film stars including Florence Pugh, Margot Robbie and Angela Bassett wore glamorous looks to the event; sheer styles featuring lace and tulle remained a favourite for celebrities on the red carpet this year.
Take a look at the 17 best celeb outfits worn that evening …
1. Florence Pugh
She donned a slicked-back hairdo and a spiky gold necklace to pick up on the gilded tones of her dress.
2. Margot Robbie
The actress wore a green Bottega Veneta gown, highlighted by a cut-out across her midriff and a one-shoulder silhouette, with a lone cuff bracelet. Her straight hair fell behind her back except for a few, face-framing strands.
3. Angela Bassett
The actress also wore her flowing curls in a voluminous half updo, adding to the drama of the ensemble.
4. Aubrey Plaza
Aubrey Plaza played with old Hollywood glamour. The White Lotus actress’ black dress was designed with a plunging neckline and a slit up the front. Her hair and make-up only added to the ensemble: Plaza’s platinum blonde updo, red nails and lipstick, and shimmering jewellery helped her nail the classic look.
5. Jessica Chastain
Jessica Chastain chose an elegant gown in a beautiful red shade. The off-the-shoulder gown was encrusted in dazzling jewels from top to bottom. The actress went for monochromatic beauty, adding a soft, crimson lipstick that played off her red dress and red hair.
6. Janelle Monáe
The singer and actor’s all-black look was anything but boring, being sheer with a statement neckline. From their gown’s patterned sleeves to the bows that capped their shoulders, Monáe’s sophisticated outfit dazzled.
7. Emma Corrin
The My Policeman and The Crown actress opted for a cool vest and trousers combo, donning Miu Miu trousers with chunky loafers and an open vest. Underneath, Corrin wore a sheer, light green top with sequins that formed a lattice overlay.
8. Keke Palmer
Keke Palmer went for a bold look in a red peplum dress. The Nope star’s gown had loads of movement, from the large folds in the peplum waist to the layers of fabric used for the trumpet-style skirt. The texture was juxtaposed with a sleek, plunging neckline and a subtle approach to jewellery.
9. Gabrielle Union
10. Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer Lawrence wore an ethereal black dress with a bold print. The Causeway star let her tiered black gown, which featured layers of floral patterned fabric in a gold tone, do the talking. She kept jewellery and make-up simple but added dark eyeliner to make her eyes pop.
11. Sadie Sink
For extra drama, Sink added pointed-toe heels with silver tips and two necklaces, one of which featured a large pendant.
12. Mindy Kaling
Mindy Kaling’s polished, all-black look utilised different textures. The actress and Never Have I Ever producer wore a black dress with interesting details that helped her look stand out. The fabric along the gown’s sweetheart neckline was made with a shiny material that came down to two points over her bust, while the dress’ straps were accented with gold hardware.
13. Cate Blanchett
Cate Blanchett paired a dramatic gown with a structured black blazer. The skirt on the famed actress’ frock had two layers: the bottom featured silver embellishments while the top was shaped into a peplum. The silver pattern also continued up the bodice of the dress. One shoulder of Blanchett’s black blazer sprouted tulle that appeared to match the rest of her ensemble.
14. Ana de Armas
De Armas wore her hair slicked back and added touches of silver jewellery to finish the look.
15. Laura Dern
Laura Dern’s outfit made a splash. The actress went for colour for the event, wearing a long-sleeved red top with a printed skirt in shades of navy blue, green, yellow, white, peach and more.
For jewellery, Dern donned a diamond necklace with a matching cuff around her wrist.
16. Michelle Yeoh
Yeoh topped it all off with gold, pointy-toed heels and sculptural earrings.
17. Taylor Russell
Taylor Russell added drama with a gold headpiece. The Bones and All actress’ form-fitting black gown was the perfect backdrop for a golden headpiece that extended down her ears and across her neckline. The statement accessory was covered in eye shapes with dangling crystals.
