Whoopi Goldberg Attends 2018 Oscars In Stunning Christian Siriano Gown
Whoopi Goldberg, 62, attended the 2018 Academy Awards in style in a teal, purple and yellow dress.

The gown, by Christian Siriano, exuded attitude and showed off the actress’ shoulder tattoo. It featured yellow and purple flowers on a cerulean background, and Goldberg added her own red ribbon to the frock in support of The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation. She also added a piece of her own sunglasses for a cheeky red carpet look.
“Oh Whoopi we love you!” the designer captioned a photo of her on his Instagram page.
While Goldberg is no stranger to out-there looks at Hollywood functions, gowns are not her usual attire of choice. In 1993, the actress donned a lime green paisley pantsuit under a purple gown. She even designed her own ugly Christmas sweater collection and shows off her wild footwear on her Instagram page, always making sure to tell her followers where they can purchase for themselves.

“He said, ‘I’m going to make it so you’ll be comfortable,'” Goldberg shared on the red carpet of the dress’s designer, “so it has pockets.”
The dress was not the only reason Goldberg made headlines for the Oscars. Jordan Peele, who won the award for Best Original Screenplay for his Get Out, attributed his motivation to make movies to the actress. “Whoopi Goldberg, in her acceptance speech for best supporting actress for Ghost, was a huge inspiration to me,” Peele, 39, said in the press room after his win. “And when I got nominated, one of the first things I did was reach out and call her and thank her for telling young people who maybe doubted themselves that they could do it. So I hope that this does the same and inspires more people to use their voices.”
He later tweeted his thanks to Goldberg.
When @WhoopiGoldberg won her Oscar for “Ghost” she practically reached through my TV screen and told young me to follow my dreams. I did, and it worked. Thanks Whoopi. pic.twitter.com/yFCoWdd7Ee
