The queer, Oscar-nominated West Side Story actress slayed the carpet in Valentino Haute Couture.

You don't have to wear a gown to turn heads at the Oscars!

31-year-old queer actress, Out100 2021 honoree, and West Side Story star Ariana DeBose (who is nominated tonight in the Best Supporting Actress category), proved exactly that by showing up to the red carpet of the prestigious awards show in an all-red pantsuit that looked absolutely stunning and powerful.

Styled by the duo of Zadrian and Sarah, DeBose graced the red carpet of the 94th annual Academy Awards wearing a custom pants, top, and cape from Valentino Haute Couture.

Aside from her Oscar nom recognition, DeBose has been absolutely killing it this awards season! She already won a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award earlier this year for her performance as Anita in Steven Speilberg's 2021 adaption of West Side Story, a role which legendary EGOT winner Rita Moreno also won the Oscar for after taking on the role in the 1961 film version. In fact, the two showed up together at tonight's red carpet.

DeBose and fellow actress Kristen Stewart (who is nominated in the Best Actress category for her role in Spencer) also made headlines together this year, as this was the first time in Oscar history two out, queer actresses were nominated for acting awards in the same year.
