Lily Gladstone teases a 'museum-worthy' Oscars outfit


Lily Gladstone is set to wear a "museum-worthy" outfit to the Oscars.
The 37-year-old actress has been nominated for the Best Actress Oscar for her performance as Mollie Burkhart in 'Killers of the Flower Moon', and Lily has now revealed that her outfit will be a "showstopper".
Asked about her outfit for the glitzy awards show in March, Lily told PEOPLE: "Definitely museum-worthy, I would say."
Lily - who is of Siksikaitsitapi and Niimiipuu heritage - also revealed that the outfit will pay homage to her community.
She said: "It's going to be just ongoing proof that Indigenous design belongs on red carpets with luxury fashion in a very centrepiece kind of way. I'm excited."
In January, meanwhile, Lily claimed that "perspectives are broadening" within the movie business.
The acclaimed actress recently became the first Native American woman to be nominated for Best Actress at the Oscars, and Lily suggested that the nomination reflects wider changes in the film industry.
Lily told the BBC: "Times absolutely are changing; people's perspectives are broadening. The Academy has gotten much more diverse in the last 10, 20 years.
"I think it's also because Native and Indigenous filmmakers have been continually blowing audiences away with what we've been making … people are ready."
'Killers of the Flower Moon' focuses on the murders of Native Americans after oil was discovered on tribal land.
Lily feels very proud of the movie and the story that it tells.
She said: "By bringing Indigenous performers into a place where we're leading ladies, we're leading films that people are feeling they're resonating with from all walks of life. That's proving that we belong in these places and we have a lot to offer. Like the stories that we have to tell are ones that everybody can benefit from, not just us."
