Pink Was The Colour Of Power At The 2019 Oscars

We know you were wondering about Jason Momoa's scrunchie.

This year's Oscar red carpet outfits were pink in just about every conceivable way: magenta, rose, fuchsia, coral, bubblegum, blush. Actresses and singers and comedians and professional organizers wore pink. Some pink outfits were gorgeous, others were confusing. It transcended age and gender lines.

It's hard to know why pink took such a hold of the awards this year. The New York Times' fashion director Vanessa Friedman tweeted a theory that it was related to Nancy Pelosi wearing hot pink while taking control of the House of Representatives.

The Cut, meanwhile, thought maybe it had to do with the oversized hot pink Valentino dress that Tracee Elliss Ross wore to the Emmys last September. If that's the case, then Jennifer Lopez's dress from the "Second Act" premiere in December may have contributed to the trend.

But who knows — maybe all those actresses are just big fans of "Killing Eve?"

Helen Mirren mentioned the abundance of pink when she presented the award for Best Documentary with Jason Momoa.

"I swear to God, Jason and I didn't coordinate our outfits tonight," she said. (Although, let's be honest, their pinks were fairly different — Mirren's was bright, with coral undertones, while Momoa's was much more muted.)

"But it just goes to show, doesn't it, that these days a Hawaiian god and a very mature English woman can actually wear the same colour. We can both wear pink!"

If you're a fan of Jason Momoa's outfit choices, you may have noticed he's wearing a scrunchie on his right wrist. The Cut pointed out that it's a Fendi scrunchie designed specifically by Karl Lagerfeld, who also designed the (coordinated!) outfits for Momoa and his wife Lisa Bonet. Name a better-dressed couple, we'll wait.
