Last year, Drew spoke of her love for her Oscars look, telling ET: "I liked when I wore the daisies in my hair. Grocery store daisies, and then I took a can of glitter from a beauty supply store and sprayed it on myself everywhere."

She added: "The red carpet is a place to play and go for it. And you only live once, so just have fun!"

However, despite looking confident in photos from the ceremony, Drew has previously revealed that she was hiding some insecurities about her appearance at the time.

"I didn't feel very confident with this haircut, but now looking back on it, I love it," she told Elle. "This was before there was so much scrutiny about everybody's hair, makeup, and wardrobe.


Drew covered herself with glitter 

"I thought that I should wear what I wore in normal life to the Academy Awards. So, I picked up some Marguerite daisies from the bodega and put on a ton of body glitter."

She added: "I'm also a huge fan of a brick red lip because it really warms up your face. I can only imagine what people would have said about this look today."
