Lily Gladstone’s Historic Oscars Nod and Red Carpet Look

Lily Gladstone Makes History at the Oscars

As a best actress nominee at tonight’s 96th Academy Awards, all eyes are on Killers of the Flower Moon star Lily Gladstone. It is a historic moment for the Siksikaitsitapi and NiMíiPuu actor, who is making history as the first Native American to be nominated in the category.

The Meaning Behind the Look

Gladstone’s red carpet look for the Oscars paid tribute to her Indigenous community. Her custom collaboration look is designed by Gucci creative director Sabato De Sarno and Indigenous artist Joe Big Mountain (Ironhorse Quillwork). The design features a bustier silhouette and a matching cape adorned with floral quillwork motifs.

Special Collaboration with Indigenous Artists

  1. The gown’s velvet cape was hand-quilled by a team of Indigenous artists on the Oneida reservation in Wisconsin.

  2. The quillwork embellishments along the back of the dress incorporate colors significant to Gladstone personally.

  3. The collaboration between Gucci, Joe Big Mountain, and Sunshine Big Mountain showcases the beauty of Indigenous artistry.

Reflecting on the Process

Gladstone expressed her gratitude for the opportunity to incorporate Indigenous perspectives into her Oscars look. The medium of quillwork felt especially appropriate, reflecting a tradition deeply rooted in her culture.

A Dream Realized

The concept for the design was sparked months prior to the Oscars, culminating in a high-fashion collaboration that celebrates Indigenous talent on a global stage.

Continuing the Legacy

Gladstone’s efforts to showcase contemporary Indigenous designers throughout awards season have been impactful, shedding light on talents often overlooked in mainstream Hollywood spaces.

A Night to Remember

Gladstone’s second Gucci and Joe Big Mountain look for the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party further highlights the beauty of Indigenous craftsmanship.
