“Yellowstone” star Kevin Costner and his wife Christine Baumgartner absolutely rocked the red carpet before and after the Oscars. Pre-show, the two turned out in gorgeous classic Hollywood looks. Costner went with a sleek black tuxedo and sunglasses to match. Baumgartner looked ethereal in a floor-length black and silver gown with lace detailing, by Tony Ward Couture per Country Living.
And while their looks for the Vanity Fair Oscar Party afterward channeled the same theme, they definitely switched things up a bit. “Yellowstone” star Kevin Costner went for the white Gucci tuxedo jacket at the Oscars after-party. It popped exceptionally well against the dark blue backdrop and carpet for Vanity Fair.
Baumgartner kept with her black and silver theme, this time with black as the base color of the dress and sparkly silver details around the edges. Both of them looked as camera-ready as ever, even hours after the show and their initial red carpet run.
Back on March 27, “Yellowstone” star Kevin Costner spoke with Etalk at the Oscars about hitting the red carpet.
“I love to see my wife dressed up, and I love to walk with her. Our daughter watched her get dressed today, and it was just a perfect way to watch our younger daughter look up to her mom,” Costner said.
Baumgartner added that it was the “ultimate date night,” and Costner replied, “So far we haven’t paid for a thing!”
At the awards show, Costner gave a heartfelt speech about directing and his love of movies before handing out the award for Best Director. The award went to Jane Campion for her film “The Power of the Dog.”
