Sequins! Thom Browne!


Zazie Beetz, who stars in Best Picture nominee Joker, arrived at the 2020 Oscars on Sunday evening in an outfit that managed to be both classic and unique.

Beetz made her Oscars debut in a sequined black Thom Browne two-piece that consisted of a strapless corset with fringe at the hem and a midi-length skirt and matching sling-back pumps. The actress complemented the sophisticated ensemble with a diamond Bvlgari choker and matching earrings, both of which were centered by emerald accents.

The Atlanta star joked that she was “sewn in” to her Thom Browne look, also telling E! red carpet host Giuliana Rancic that the thrill of seeing herself onscreen hasn’t dissipated in the years since she began acting: “Any time I see a movie with me in it I’m always like ‘whoa.’”

If anyone’s saying “whoa” in reference to Beetz tonight, it’s us.
