Tems responds to view-blocking Oscars 2023 dress backlash
Now she’s blocking the haters.
At Sunday’s 2023 Oscars, Best Original Song nominee Tems faced backlash for wearing a dramatic white Lever Couture dress that blocked the view of the audience members seated behind her during the awards ceremony.
And on Monday, the 27-year-old Grammy winner shared her playful response to the drama.
“Uh Ohh!” Tems captioned a series of Instagram photos of herself wearing the couture creation from the Ukrainian label, which featured a structured veil that wrapped around her shoulders and formed a sculptural halo above her head.
She also tweeted photos modeling the over-the-top ensemble, writing, “Oops.”
Fans applauded Tems for the playful clap-back and embracing her fashion choice.
“Block their view! 🔥,” one person on Instagram cheered.
“You’re way up there and I’m happy you been knew it❤️❤️,” a second person wrote.
“Block them love… They don’t deserve to see front😍😍,” another fan said.
