Is this a new fashion trend- floating straps?

Emily Blunt Oscars 2024 Dress

That seems to be the case at this year’s 96th Academy Awards ceremony. Actress Emily Blunt took to the red carpet to show off a stunning gown that came complete with floating straps that sat just above her shoulders. As you can see in this TikTok video posted by user @gqmexico, the actress looked radiant but seemingly rocked a new fashion trend during the show.

According to this Glamour article, Blunt wore a Schiaparelli gown and Alexandre Birman shoes to the highly-anticipated event. She also accessorized with a Judith Leiber clutch and Tiffany & Co. jewels. Blunt was up for Best Actress In a Supporting Role for her part in Oppenheimer, this year, but Da’Vine Joy Randolph took home the award in this category for “The Holdovers.”
