This Is Not a Drill: Someone Wore Gold Crocs on the Oscars Red Carpet

What do you do when you've earned a coveted invite to the Oscars but you can't let go of your comfy quarantine style? Well, if you're Questlove, you slap on a pair of golden Crocs and call it a day. The artist was tapped to be the musical director of the Academy Awards ceremony this year, so naturally, he had to be comfortable to make sure things went off without a hitch behind the scenes.

Along with his Crocs, Questlove wore a pair of pants that teeter on the edge of sweats and trousers—another brilliant move in the comfort category. Meanwhile, gold also made more traditional appearances on the red carpet with Carey Mulligan, Andra Day, and others all selecting dresses in the classic metallic color.

Erin Fitzpatrick
Senior News Editor

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
