The long-awaited moment in the world of cinema is approaching: the announcement of the winners of the coveted Oscar. This year the nominations for the 2021 Oscar awards also see the presence of the Italian singer Laura Pausini with the song “Io si” from the film “Life in front of you”,  the film starring the timeless Sophia Loren. Another Italian competing for costumes Massimo Cantini Parrini for the film Pinocchio.

The delivery of the Oscars has always been an appointment awaited by all fans of cinema but also of fashion and lifestyle, given the presence of numerous stars present at the proclamation, who show off clothes designed especially for them by the best stylists. This year the proclamation will take place on April 25, a little late with the original program due to the pandemic that required the shifting of the useful dates.
