How do you wear the blazer and pant combo without looking like you're going to the office? Dolly de Leon shows us how as she takes power dressing to a new level.

Despite not getting an Oscar nomination, Dolly has made a scene-stealing show at the 95th Annual Academy Awards red carpet event. The Triangle of Sadness star rocked a double breasted jacket embellished with latex flower pin from the Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini Pre-Fall 2023 collection.

In a previous interview with PhilSTAR L!fe, Dolly said she opted to wear a suit to the event because "I'd like think that I’m fluid."

“I'm fluid in terms of my expression of how I dress, my clothes, and pati personality ko, I am fluid. So, this time I want to go androgynous…which is reflective of my personality,” Dolly explained.

She also added that she wanted to wear something "comfortable" as events like the Oscars require "a lot of walking."

Dolly's stylist, fellow Filipino LJ Perez, accessorized the power suit with bright red accents like a pair of Manolo Blahnik pointy slingbacks, Vex Latex gloves, and Neil Felipp clutch. 

As for her jewelry, she wore jewels from Chris Habana and Vitaly, and a ring from her mom's collection.

Making a literal statement, Dolly also wore a blue ribbon on her left shoulder in solidarity with refugees who have been displaced from their homes.

She is also using this opportunity to promote "Project Hulmahan," an initiative by her group called "Ladies Who Launch," that aims to raise funds for struggling artists and displaced shoe factory workers in Marikina City.

Dolly is set to make an apperance in ABS-CBN's Dirty Linen and is also working on two more Hollywood films.
