The biggest night in Hollywood just so happens to also be one of fashion’s biggest and best. From pink palettes to metallic moments, we’ve rounded up some of this year’s top Oscars looks.
A star has truly been born through Lady Gaga’s remarkable award season looks. The now Oscar-winning actress not only stunned in a dramatic Alexander McQueen gown and sleek elbow gloves, but adorned the precious Tiffany Yellow Diamond—worn for the first time since Audrey Hepburn in her emblematic film, Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Glitz and glamour define Jennifer Lopez’s long-sleeved, form-fitting Tom Ford gown. The metallic tone sparkled in the Los Angeles sun, and emphasized J. Lo’s mastery in statement-making looks.
Jennifer Hudson’s siren red Elie Saab gown wasn’t her only radiant look of the night. The one-shouldered number was classically red carpet chic, but the Supreme Court-inspired ensemble during her powerhouse performance of “I’ll Fight” from the documentary RBG, was worthy of a standing ovation all on its own.
Statement shoulders and a dichromatic use of gold and brown dressed Emma Stone’s striking look. A custom Louis Vuitton, the gown stood out on the red carpet and rounded out Stone’s award season run following her Oscar-nominated film, The Favourite.
Pretty in pink appeared to be a leading trend at this year’s Oscars, and Sarah Paulson’s vivid Brandon Maxwell dress may reign supreme. The subtle, yet stunning details include a diamond choker, slight cutouts and—perhaps best of all—pockets.
Regina King looked effortlessly elegant as she walked up the stage to accept her Best Supporting Actress award for her role in If Beale Street Could Talk. Most significantly emphasized in its pronounced train, the romantic details of the Oscar de la Renta gown followed King’s every step.
Brie Larson’s silver halter gown simply wowed. Embellished in glistening mesh, a high neck and a thigh-high slit, the Celine by Hedi Slimane dress drew futuristic impressions, all while upholding the elements of a glamorous garment.
Also in pursuit of pink, Gemma Chan stepped out in a billowing neon Valentino Haute Couture gown. A high neckline and voluminous collar closed out the dramatic, astounding details of this one-of-a-kind dress.
In a standout hue of the evening, Emilia Clarke walked the famed carpet in a contemporary, lavender Balmain gown, replete in brilliant crystal sparkles. The modern look featured well-defined elements, from the dress’ asymmetrical, strapless silhouette to Clarke’s fresh, blunt bob.
The supermodel arrived to Elton John’s grand Oscars-viewing party in a bold, ball gown-esque Elie Saab. Gold detailing donned the black sheer gown, two distinguished colors that seem perfectly apt for one of the ritziest nights in Hollywood.
