Oscar night is the World Cup of fashion, and this year, a handful of stars merged as champions! While most chose to play it safe, some went down an edgier route; either way, they made for a pretty picture on the red carpet of the world’s most prestigious film awards!
Below, we bring you the top looks of the night! Like? Love? Let us know!
Cate Blanchett in Armani
Queen Cate stunned, as per usual, in this intricate Armani gown with jewels from Tiffany & Co. She may not have taken home an Oscar, but she certainly ruled over the red carpet!
Naomi Watts in Giorgio Armani Privé
Naomi brought a much-needed pop of color to the red carpet in this beaded Armani Privé number. Keeping her hair and makeup simple, a red lip added the perfect accent to this look.
Priyanka Chopra in Zuhair Murad
This Zuhair Murad gown joins sexy and sweet in perfect harmony, and Priyanka, with her beautiful skin tone and perfect curves, knows just how to work it!
Rachel McAdams in August Getty Atelier
Spotlight actress and Oscar nominee Rachel McAdams went with an unconventional choice of designers on this year’s red carpet, and the risk paid off big time! The cut and simplicity of this dark green gown allowed Rachel’s natural beauty to shine through.
Brie Larson in Gucci
Brie was a real winner this year, both in the Best Actress category and on the red carpet! The Grecian belt and the rich blue color of the gown were all the accoutrements Brie needed to stand out amongst her fellow fashionistas. Nailed it!
Charlize Theron in Dior
Let’s face it: when you’re as impossibly stunning as Charlize is, you tend to rock every look you wear! But this scarlet Dior gown with a deep plunging neckline was perfectly suited for the South African beauty, who looked absolutely statuesque. And a Harry Winston diamond rope necklace was the cherry on top!
Rooney Mara in Givenchy Haute Couture
While we’ve seen Ms. Mara in similar styles before, it’s undeniably a look she wears well. The color and silhouette lent a touch of edginess to this year’s red carpet, and the dark makeup and slicked back hair made Rooney look every inch an Ice Princess…in the best way possible!
Saoirse Ronan in Calvin Klein Collection
Best Actress nominee Saoirse Ronan has brought her fashion A-game to nearly every red carpet this awards season, managing to diversify her looks while still appearing young, fresh, and classic. This beaded green Calvin Klein gown, with green eyeshadow to match, gave Saoirse all the sparkle she needed on the red carpet without overwhelming her petite frame. Lovely!
Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton
Alicia was the ‘Belle’ of the ball in this custom Louis Vuitton gown that reminded quite a few of the iconic yellow gown from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. It may not have been groundbreaking, but it was a fun, flirty choice that capitalized on the gorgeous Swede’s youthful beauty and luminosity.
Jared Leto in Gucci
Men’s red carpet fashion is usually a snooze fest, but Jared Leto wasn’t about to let the ladies have all the fun! The actor, who plays the Joker in the upcoming film Suicide Squad, seemed to take inspiration from the iconic villain’s style when picking his look for the night. It was certainly a risk, but one that really paid off!
