Jennifer Lopez stepped away from her usual tight and sexy numbers and opted for a princess moment in an embellished nude Elie Saab gown.
After months of campaigning, schmoozing and promoting the year’s most talked about films, Hollywood gathered at the Kodak Theater tonight to cap off awards season with the Academy Awards ceremony. As usual, we’ve broken down the all the trends, hits and misses of the night.
Black was the most dominating color of this year’s awards season. Tonight, Hollywood did a complete turn around by opting for a lighter fare. The Oscars red carpet was filled with gorgeous champagne, blush and nude numbers.
We’re deeming Gwyneth Paltrow’s pink, one-shouldered Ralph & Russo gown with a blooming shoulder, one of the chicest looks of the night.
Jennifer Aniston ditched her signature black for a gorgeous beaded Atelier Versace number.
New mom, Zoe Saldana stepped out in Atelier Versace.
Oprah Winfrey in Vera Wang.
Karolina Kurkova in a dramatic blush number.
Kerry Washington in Miu Miu.
Reigning TV Queen, Viola Davis stepped out in Zac Posen.
Vogue Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour added a fur shrug to her gown.
Red carpets are all about making a statement and tonight was the night of the statement necklace.
Scarlett Johansson’s necklace was actually a part of her Atelier Versace dress. All we have to say is that it takes a bold woman to rock a pompadour and a major neck piece like that.
Cate Blanchett’s unique style is one we can never get enough off. Her velvet Maison Margiela was accessorized with a turquoise statement necklace.
Continuing in the trend of making a statement, we have to give the two ladies below props for stepping out of the box when it comes to color. Thanks to these looks, we’re starting to dream of spring.
The award for the most interesting color of the night has to go to Emma Stone. This lime green colored Elie Saab is perfection on her skin.
Jennifer Hudson stunned in an understated but nevertheless chic yellow column gown.
Fashion is art. Repeat after us, fashion is art. The amount of time and effort that is put into each gown that ends up on the red carpet is truly astounding –which is why we couldn’t help but appreciate the amazing detail that went into the gowns below.
Julianne Moore’s Chanel Haute Couture gown took about 927 hours to put together, the Best Actress nominee told Access Hollywood.
Talk about being draped in class. Lupita Nyong’o’s custom Calvin Klein Collection number featured more than 6000 pearls.
Keira Knightley’s whimsical Valentino dress featured French phrases embroidered on her tulle skirt.
The key to the perfect dress has and will always be fit. Whether you’re cinched at the waist or playing with volume, it’s important to make sure you are wearing the dress and not the way around. The gowns below gave us the best silhouettes of the evening.
Reese Witherspoon was cinched to perfection in this baby blue Tom Ford number with black accents.
Jessica Chastain looked absolutely stunning in this navy Givenchy Couture gown which hugged every curve of her body.
Rita Ora’s mermaid Vera Wang gown was elegantly cut to elongate and accentuate.
Marion Cotillard played with some volume in Dior. We love that she’s always willing to take a risk.
The night wouldn’t be complete without some red carpet misses. The most controversial and most meme’d look of the night goes to a “lady” who is very much used to people being split when it comes to her fashion sense.
Lady Gaga accessorized her Azzedine Alaïa gown with some red dishwashing gloves.
Solange Knowles’ look also missed the mark. The usually on point fashionista looked overwhelmed in her Christian Siriano ensemble. A combo of too much red and too much volume killed this look for us.
