Additional Oscar trends spotted included leg-baring slits, bustiers, and glittering metallics and accents. Below, we’ve highlighted our top ten picks from the star-studded event, concluding with our favorite look of them all.
Model-turned-actress Milla Jovovich wears a feminine, one-shoulder beaded dress by Elie Saab, accented with a fabulous red lip.
Angelina Jolie did not disappoint in black Versace, revealing a come hither peek at her long gams. The press can’t seem to get over her leggy poses, but wouldn’t you show them off too?
By far the most ornate gown of the evening was a breathtaking Alexander McQueen worn by Best Supporting Actress nominee Jessica Chastain, adorned with a cool two million dollars’ worth of Harry Winston baubles.
Stunning on the arm of George Clooney was his girl, Stacy Keibler, in a gold Marchesa gown.
Some did not agree with the choice of this Valentino dress on Shailene Woodley. It was a risky choice for such a young actress, to be sure, and one of our favorite looks of the evening.
Best Supporting Actress winner Octavia Spencer shined in a white beaded gown by Tadashi Shoji.
Here, one of our newest red carpet favorites, Best Actress nominee Rooney Mara, also chooses white. Her Givenchy gown is perfectly accented by a red lip, sleek hair, and porcelain skin.
The carpet gained a touch of glitz via Rose Byrne’s body-skimming Vivienne Westwood creation.
Taking top red carpet honors in our book, Gwyneth Paltrow stopped the show in a white sheath by Tom Ford, paired with a matching cape. Moving forward, we here at DFW Style Daily predict that the color white will remain a hot commodity for both day and evening through the spring and summer.
