Showstoppers. This is what MEGA’s Best Dressed List is all about. The 2024 Oscars, the biggest and most exciting ceremony for this year’s awards season, is no exception. In theory, it should go all out, in its ever-glamorous reverie. From iconic design recreations to stunning peplum details in their own statements, each woman made their mark with their impeccable style—and they made sure everyone knew it, too. Here’s the inside look into MEGA’s Best Dressed List for the evening.


Zendaya in Armani and Bvlgari jewels

Zendaya transcends in Armani Privé, donning palm leaves-like patterns that gleam like the ethereal glow of distant galaxies, set against a backdrop of luscious luster pink. With a regal flair, she accessorized with Bvlgari jewels fit for a queen.

Emma Stone

Emma Stone shines in Louis Vuitton, showcasing the resurgence of peplum with her custom strapless ensemble. The light mint green hue adds a refreshing twist to the trend, and Stone effortlessly pulls off the look with her signature charm. While unconventional, the choice proves to be fitting for the occasion, reminiscent of a character like Bella Baxter in Poor Things herself.

Anya Taylor-Joy mesmerized in Dior, paying homage to the iconic 1949 Junon design that had previously captivated audiences when another recreation was worn by Natalie Portman at the previous Cannes Film Festival. With painstaking attention to detail, Taylor-Joy’s ensemble, requiring 3,500 hours of embroidery work, breathed new life into archival pieces. Perhaps it’s time for a trend to recreate such timeless classics, akin to remaking a beloved film. Who knows what innovative ideas the current creatives of a House may bring to fruition in their reinterpretations of these iconic designs?

America Ferrera

Margot Robbie

Margot Robbie stuns in a Versace creation that diverges from her usual pink attire, opting instead for a sleek black ensemble. While some may speculate on the significance of her departure from pink—perhaps a nod to her non-nomination or simply a desire for change—Robbie exudes confidence and strength in black. Her producer nomination adds to her aura of pride, showcasing her versatility and prowess in the industry.

Carey Mulligan

Carey Mulligan channels operatic grace in a sumptuous velvety gown by Balenciaga. If the gown may look familiar, it’s because it’s a close copy of the classic Flamenco dress designed by Balenciaga in 1951. It boasts a mesmerizing mermaid silhouette that captivates with its sculpted hem and voluminous white tulle underskirt. Paired with classic opera gloves, her ensemble exudes a refined sophistication fit for a leading Maestro.

Rediscover Romance with Tiffany & Co. and its Icons

Influenced by the works of famed Artistic Director and Vice President Gene Moore, Tiffany & Co. renews love with its new campaign celebrating its icons.

For the latest campaign of Tiffany & Co., award-winning photographer Dan Tobin Smith and set designer Rachel Thomas took inspiration from the iconic works of former and famed window dresser, Artistic Director, and Vice President of Tiffany & Co., Gene Moore. Together, they created “With Love, Since 1837″—a romantic tribute to the legacy of one of the world’s most iconic jewelry brands through the world of Moore.

Love is not always about grand gestures; it’s also about the small moments of connection and affection that make life meaningful. Sometimes, it’s as simple as walking by a window and being attracted by the shimmering display of jewelry—a window adorned by a luminary in American design history and a key figure in shaping Tiffany & Co.’s iconic brand image: Gene Moore.

At the heart of Moore’s approach was an appreciation for the power of simplicity. He bypassed grandiosity in favor of subtle refinement, using everyday objects to create elevated displays. From cascading paper flowers to floating silver orbs, Moore’s installations ensnared the attention of passersby—why else would Holly Golightly have breakfast at Tiffany’s?

During his illustrious four-decade tenure, Moore orchestrated over 5,000 window displays that radiated a cinematic charm. His creative palette included a verdant embrace of leaves, delicate petals of blossoming flowers, and the luscious bounty of ripe fruit. These pieces were artfully arranged to produce a romantic oasis against cloud-kissed backdrops.

From miniature to oversized scale models, every element is carefully framed to evoke wonder and awe.

She is vocal and forward in using her profound influence in the show business industry. As a versatile actress, she takes on many roles and character but here are three of her most personal roles as the changemaker Nadine.

Empowered and Free Woman Nadine

Nadine is the new face of Hiraya Pilipina, the lifestyle and advocacy brand for Filipinas nationwide. In providing innovative, inclusive, and modern solutions for women, Hiraya Pilipina has found in Nadine a truly awe-inspiring presence who shares in the brand’s vision and embodies their message.

Actress Nadine Lustre is Hiraya Pilipina’s first celebrity ambassador

Just last weekend, Hiraya Pilipina opened their first pop-up shop at Market! Market!, Taguig. Basking in this milestone, taking up a physical space to continue providing modern solutions for the modern Filipina, the brand also celebrates a momentous mark in their journey. While they are growing exponentially in sales with their niche products, Hiraya is a business with heart and passion—and Nadine is the forefront of this.

Nadine joins forces with Hiraya Pilipina to celebrate one’s true self through Hiraya Pilipina’s innovative products

“I’ve always introduced Hiraya Pilipina as a ‘small business’. And it really is. But now we’re taking it to the next level,” founder and CEO Cleo Loque shares with MEGA. In the celebration of Women’s Month, Cleo also says there was no other option except for Nadine to be the brand’s ambassador. “Siya lang, because Nadine is someone who has been very courageous in showing herself, in expressing her true self.”

As a empowered woman, Nadine Lustre aims to end the stigma surrounding period care—and encourages all Filipinas to do the same

In making products for innerwear and period care that are often shrouded in secrecy and shame, Hiraya and Nadine embrace these struggles and free themselves from the stigma—and encourage you to do so as well. As a brand built on these advocacies and values, Cleo continues on to say, “I’m just so grateful that we can strengthen our message because we now have someone as influential as Nadine to reach more people, inspire more people, and empower more women now that we have her as our ambassador, who is, really, the face of Hiraya Pilipina.”

Mental Health Advocate Nadine

Towards her campaign for a better world, Nadine pushes forward her beliefs and uses her influence in advocating for mental health importance. The actress uses her platform to continuously be vulnerable and brave in sharing how she suffered from depression and anxiety—and how taking part in several mental health initiatives could make an impact to break the stigma surrounding mental health. One of these initiatives is partnering with Yassi Pressman and Liza Soberano in becoming a celebrity investor and partner for Mind You, an online platform that provides easy and cheaper access to therapists, psychologists, and psychiatrists to the people in need of them.

She uses her platforms to talk about how people can help in conserving this wonderful habitat, and takes part in initiatives such as tree-planting and tree-nurturing, reforestation programs, and her journey to a vegan lifestyle, which she is embarking on for the welfare of animals and the planet.

On sunny days, the dress is just the ticket to an elegant and chic summer ensemble befitting of a birthday girl. The fabric gave the dress a more carefree feel, but the fitted silhouette of the layered skirt, showing off her figure, the one-shoulder strap, and the falling sleeve made the look effortlessly sexy. The white is also a blank canvas for the intricate details sewn onto the skirt such as the seashells and the pearls.

Mark Bumgarner and Kathryn Bernardo exemplify true friendship; the fashion designer pens this with “Always got your back.”

Truly ever-loved by her family, friends, and the nation, Kathryn is indeed graceful at 28 as she enters this new chapter in her life. Happy birthday, Kathryn!
