There’s no doubt that this year’s Oscars will go down in history as being one of the most memorable ceremonies to date. From La La Land incorrectly receiving Moonlights award for best picture, to tourists crashing the festivities and Chrissy Teigen taking a nap during Casey Affleck’s speech. Yep, it was definitely one to remember.
We wish we could say the same for the red carpet, however. With just a few “wow” dresses, it didn’t take too long to narrow down the best dressed list. Metallics along with safe colours such as black and white were the most popular choices with many of Hollywood’s starlets getting it quite wrong. But we’re not here to name and shame. Instead we’re going to give props to the actresses whom effortlessly nailed it.
Bringing a flamenco vibe to the red carpet Brie Larson kept it simple and sophisticated in a strapless ruffled gown by Oscar de la Renta dress and paired with Aquazzura sandals.
Never one to get it wrong, Halle Berry combined two of the biggest trends of the night – metallics and fringe – with this figure hugging Versace couture gown.
Jessica Biel gave major life to the term “golden goddess” with this beautiful floor length creation with a fringe collar by KaufmanFranco.
Chrissy Teigen opted for Zuhair Murad to show off her fabulous figure. With a sexy thigh-high split, this is possibly one of our absolute fave dresses of the night.
We had no doubt that Taraji P Henson would give us life with her choice of outfit and boy did she not disappoint. Wearing a custom made Alberta Ferretti gown with a plunging neckline the Hidden Figures actress brought glamour in high doses.
Designed by red carpet favourites, Ralph & Russo, we adore Priyanka Chopra’s futuristic, structured white gown.
Taking it back to the 1920’s, Emma Stone’s looked lovely in a detailed fringed sleeveless Givenchy Haute Couture dress by Riccardo Tisci.
