When it came to Whoopi Goldberg‘s 90th annual Academy Awards red carpet look, comfort was key.

“Christian Siriano made this for me and he said I’m gonna make it so you will be comfortable,” Goldberg said on the red carpet of her off-the-shoulder floral patterned ballgown.

Pockets - Siriano - Gown - Goldberg - Choice

But besides the pockets, Siriano designed the belted colorful gown so Goldberg could conceal her most comfortable footwear choice: combat boots!

“So it has pockets and it also has…” the 1991 Best Supporting Actress winner said as she lifted up her billowing skirt to reveal the unlaced boots she was wearing beneath it. To complete her look, Goldberg added a red pin over her heart on the gown to raise awareness for HIV.

Cosmetics collection before the Oscars. “It’s been a really rough one.”
