The Oscars are often referred to as the night of glamour, and last night’s 87th annual ceremony was no different.
As the most fashion forward award show of the season, here are the trends of the gowns and suits that graced the red carpet.
When it came to necklines, high collars replaced revealing cutouts, and Classic Hollywood in blacks and whites took the gold for Sunday night with help from designers like Saint Laurent, Tom Ford and Versace.
Although neutrals were seen through the crowd, there were definitely pops of color. Anna Kendrick was in a coral silk gown with a jeweled halter collar by Thakoon, and Sienna Miller was the first on a major carpet to wear Peter Copping for Oscar de la Renta, a deep dark blue with thin straps.
And what’s the Oscars without just a little pizzazz? Jamie Chung walked the red carpet in a princess-y fireworks design on her Yanina Couture gown, accompanied with diamond cluster earrings from Leticia Linton. Speaking of pizazz, starlet of the moment Dakota Johnson decided on a ponytail to go with her red, one-shoulder Saint Laurent with a dash of sparkle detail. Also in Saint Laurent was Robbie, in a deep black gown draped at the front with sheer long sleeves, her blond hair straight as a pin in a side part.
For the guys it was all about tailored fits. David Oyelowo sported a wine red tuxedo from Dolce & Gabbana, while singer Adam Levine rocked a deep black Versace look. Others, like Channing Tatum and Host Neil Patrick Harris, also did the world a favor by looking super handsome, all dressed up.
When it comes to best dressed, Emma Stone was on her way in a drop-dead gorgeous beaded Elie Saab in celery green. The back was low and the lines of embellishment were impeccable. Also on that list, Reese Witherspoon wore a black and vibrant white Tom Ford off-the-shoulder gown that he designed just for her.
“He had this beautiful sketch,” she said. “He works so hard and loves women.”
Other fabulous attendees included Julianne Moore who wore a beautiful Chanel gown adorned with about 80,000 beads. Scarlett Johansson went for green, while there was a small group that showed up in red, including Rosamund Pike in Givenchy Haute Couture and nominee Felicity Jones in Alexander McQueen.
“It’s all hand-sewn, even these little pockets of pearls,” Jones said.
As for hair, it was all about the updos. Jennifer Lopez and Patricia Arquette were just two that went for the mod look. Along with the fabulous hair, Arquette went for one with a one-shoulder white top she wore with a black skirt, all designed by her childhood friend Rosetta Getty.
“She was my best friend since we were 7 or 8 years old,” said Arquette, nominated for best supporting actress for “Boyhood.”
Overall, the night was a success for fashion. All the looks were not only gorgeous, but suited the wearers so well.
