The Academy Awards is one of the largest events of this year, also as Hollywood’s A-listers gathered for its prestigious awards ceremony our eyes were about the dresses, both on the red carpet and in the after party.
2. Grecian Draping
Celebs including Oprah, Zoe Saldana, Anna Kendricks (who wore Thakoon) and Octavia Spencer, chosen to wear dresses which were motivated by Grecian draping. Octavia’s look was quite possibly our favorite because she walked the red carpet in a beautiful light blue embroidered gown.
Oprah’s blush-coloured Vera Wang gown also warrants a mention, because the match was superb and proved that this style is among the most flattering due to the careful placing of chic pleating. Also, is there anything this woman cannot do?
Stars took to the red carpet in dazzling, shiny silver gowns to give the night a touch of timeless glamour.
One of the celebs who shone on Sunday night was prior supermodel Heidi Klum, who wore a dazzling Versace gown; Anna Faris, who attended the Oscar’s at a dazzling jewel-encrusted Zuhair Murad Spring 2015 Couture dress; and Miranda Kerr grabbed everyone’s eye in her white Emilio Pucci gown, complete with thousands of golden antiques around the liner.
4. Boy/Girl Styling
Some celebs decided that boy/girl styling proved to be a great alternative for an after-party look, and we have to agree: We adored how Birdman celebrity Naomi Watts ditched her Armani dress for a white suit with plunging neckline, and the way Solange Knowles wore a striking red Christian Siriano Fall 2015 crepe cape shirt and pant (which lots of people did not like, but we disagree).
We also loved Meryl Streep’s very age-appropriate look. The iconic celebrity opted for a custom made Lanvin appearance, a tailored black blazer, full-length black shirt, completed with a belt and off-white silk blouse — we believe the look was super elegant and professional.
5. Tube Dresses
Tube dresses were the most popular choice for the 2015 Oscar’s and we loved how every celeb rocked the design in their own manner. From Gone Girl’s Rosamund Pike’s striking red tube dress to Rita Ora who looked breathtakingly lovely in her super feminine midnight blue and golden gown –that she styled with around $7.5 million worth of Lorraine Schwartz jewellery, such as 40-carat, Victorian-inspired diamond drop earrings — it is clear that tube dresses were a popular choice among Hollywood’s elite.
We also saw the pearl colour tube dress was a popular choice on the runway — Nicole Kidman, Kerry Washington, and Lupita Nyong’Decision were ladies who rocked this color and layout — but specifically we had been dismissed by Oscar-winning star Julianne Moore’s dress.
Moore’s gown was a custom-made Chanel Haute Couture gown, designed by Karl Lagerfeld. The dress was easy, yet impressive in it’s construction, which took 987 hours to finish using 80,000 hand-painted sequins expertly sewn on this stunning garment.
When many celebs opted for easy colors (because prints could be insecure on the red carpet) florals were certainly one of the tendencies we saw on the runways: among the celebs who opted to use these textured, fun appearances were Michelle Schumacher, Chloe Grace Moretz, Rashida Jones, Marion Cotillard and Keira Knightley.
Keira Knightley quite possibly has the very best maternity style, and she looked amazing in her floor-length floral Valentino Couture dress. Keira has shown she’s a lover of loose-fitting, flowy silhouettes throughout her pregnancy and her selection for the red rug wasn’t any exception.
We also loved Marion Cotillard’s floral outfit that she wore to the Vanity Fair after party. The great thing about this appearance is that it was really a skirt and top combo, both Giambattista Valli Haute Couture and although it was a risky option, we believe she pulled it off.
