Natalie Portman went viral at the 92nd Academy Awards for wearing a custom-made Dior dress that included the names of several female filmmakers who were snubbed in this year’s Best Director category.
Names included on the cape of Portman’s dress included Lorene Scafaria (“Hustlers”), Lulu Wang (“The Farewell”), Greta Gerwig (“Little Women”), Alma Har’el (“Honey Boy”), and Céline Sciamma (“Portrait of a Lady on Fire”), among others.
Some have praised Portman for using Oscars fashion to put the Academy on blast.
Others are being more critical of Portman for her own lack of collaborating with female filmmakers.
Rose McGowan published a statement on Facebook, she said she was left disgusted by Portman’s Oscars dress.
