Kaitlyn Dever's Oscars Clutch Was Missing One Important Thing
We may never know what it's like to attend the Oscars as someone who has starred in hit (and definitely-should-have-been-nominated) movies, but thanks to Booksmart and Unbelievable's Kaitlyn Dever, we can sort of imagine it. For the 2020 awards show, the 23-year-old actress helped grant InStyle inside access, snapping a few photos from the event and even grabbing close-ups of her red carpet gown.
As it turns out, the custom red Louis Vuitton number that Dever arrived in was more than just stunning. It was also ethical and eco-responsible, made of silk satin that was certified by the “Red Carpet Green Dress."
"With fashion, you can think a little bit before you buy something brand new," she told Giuliana Rancic on the E! red carpet, prior the the awards show. "That's really important. And also, look into the brands that you're supporting."
Aside from sharing the details on her bold, beaded dress, the actress took us through the night's major moments, whether it was getting her glam done, the sneaky selfie she took during the show, or the snack food she wish she packed in her bag. Dever also captured a sweet moment she shared with another talented pal, who you might just recognize from Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

It's time to live vicariously through Dever by checking out her fun, full Oscars night, ahead.
A Pre-Show Trim
"Notice the hair on the floor?" she asks InStyle. "I decided to cut off a significant amount of my locks before the Oscars to create a very sleek and clean look to go with the dress."
Finding the Perfect Shade
"Finishing touches on my gel manicure. Had a chat with my stylist about color and we didn’t want to distract from the stole so we kept it natural."
Almost Ready to Go
"Everything all laid out and ready to go! I had multiple fittings and discussions with my stylist Karla Welch to make sure it was perfect. I love that it is sustainably made too...made me even more excited about wearing it."
The Finishing Touch
"And the stole goes on!!!! I was excited to get up out of the glam chair and move around a bit...I was getting anxious!"
The Calm Before the Carpet
"Casually taking a seat before walking out the door and also trying not to rip the dress! This dress was VERY cinched."
A Sweet Ride
"Keeping it green by taking a Tesla to the Oscars! This was taken moments before I was panicking about getting in and out of the car without getting rain on the stole. There was a little drizzle outside."
Stopping to Say Hello
"Ran into my best bud [Margaret Qualley] at the Oscars. We kept having to remind each other that, 'Yes, in fact, we were at the Oscars,' because it really was a 'pinch me' moment."
Snapping a Photo on the Sly
"Snuck a selfie during commercial break!!! And also wishing I had shoved a couple almonds in my clutch!!"
Taking a Sip
"Had a normal coffee with some normal latte art."
A Quick Outfit Change
"Me and my sister Mady at the Vanity Fair post-Oscars party! I felt like changing, but still kept it sustainable by wearing this Vintage Pierre Balmain from the '40."
