Oscars 2019: Olivia Colman leads the “Best Actresses”

I was very pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this years “host-less” Oscars! Opening with a performance by Queen was a brilliant move, and following it up with Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, and Maya Rudolph kept the energy going.

However, I can’t find a designer credit for it and it’s driving me insane. My best guesses were Oscar de la Renta, Christian Dior, or Schiaparelli, but a quick look through their 2017/18 collections and I couldn’t find it.
