Lily Gladstone Melded Throwback Glam and Indigenous Elements for Her Stellar Look at the Oscars 2024

Best-actress nominee Lily Gladstone merged her Native American heritage with familiar red-carpet names like Gucci and Bulgari for her looks at both the Oscars 2024 ceremony and Vanity Fair’s Oscar Party. Gladstone, whose nomination for her role as Mollie Burkhart in Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon makes her the first nominee of Siksikaitsitapi and Nimiipuu heritage in the category—has worked with stylist Jason Rembert to integrate Indigenous designers in her red-carpet appearances throughout awards season.

Gladstone followed a royal blue gown for the Oscar ceremony with a beaded black number for the Vanity Fair Oscar Party. Gucci collaborated with Joe and Sunshine Big Mountain of Ironhorse Quillwork for both dresses. The Ironhorse Quillwork team’s intricate work on Gladstone’s cape and earrings was amplified by Bulgari sparkles.

As Gladstone told Vanity Fair in an interview for this year’s Hollywood issue: “The high fashion is fun because it proves the point that Native design belongs with luxury. It’s so cool when you have a garment, whether it be Indigenous design or couture. When the pairing with the right set of earrings happens—like, Native women’s earring game is strong.”

The Bulgari pieces (which she wore throughout the night) reflected the color saturation in the actor’s gown.

“One thing that I wanted to utilize were colors that were important to her,” Joe Big Mountain told Vogue, speaking of the blue Gucci gown. “The blues, greens, and reds were significant to her personally, and I wanted to have those close to her heart.”

Gladstone’s necklace featured diamonds, amethysts, turquoise, sapphires, and one behemoth 28-and-change-carat tanzanite at the center of the plume. Her high-jewelry ring featured a smattering of diamonds and sapphires embracing a whopping nine-carat sapphire in its own vivid deep blue. And, because it’s Hollywood on Oscar night, the look came together with a bracelet set with more than 45 carats of diamonds.
