Oscars 2017: Style File
There were so many beautiful looks on the red carpet last night and at the Oscar after parties and we’ve rounded up a few favourites and are here to give you the low down. An overall look at some of last nights looks would suggest no obvious trends or outrageous pieces (nothing will ever top Bjork’s 2001 swan dress) but we did see some common themes.
Firstly many seemed to take style notes from the Oscar statue itself and went for gold with their look. Best Actress Oscar winner Emma Stone shone in her Givenchy beaded and fringed dress that combined with her makeup really emulated a 1920’s sort of Hollywood glamour. Jessica Biel went for a full sequinned floor length dress by KaufmanFranco with a feathered neckpiece and choosing to keep the rest of her jewellery understated and simple. Dakota Johnson has been a long time fan of Gucci and is constantly being seen in their creations so it made no surprise when she arrived to the Oscars in one of their dresses. The Victorian style dress in pale gold silk may not be everyone cup of tea but we think Johnson really pulled out the punches with this look! Other honourable mentions of gold wearing gals are Charlize Theron in Dior and Amy Adams looking flawless in Tom Ford.
The red carpet also featured some bold red dresses from fashion break out of the awards season Ruth Negga in high neck Valentino dress with lace detailing and accessorised with an Irene Neuwirth headpiece. One of the big Oscar Winners of the night Viola Davis was glowing in a Armani Prive off the shoulder vermillion silk design. Davis accented the look with gold pieces and her new sharp pixie hair cut complemented the figure hugging dress beautifully. Ginnifer Goodwin red dresses noticeably similar to Ruth Nega’s but was in fact made Zuhair Murad and featured sheer panel and mix of lace of and polka dots all in the same hue. Other ladies who rocked red last night were Olivia Munn in Giambattista Valli, Ciara in Jovani, Alessandra Ambrosio.
The colour white, although tricky to pull off, also seemed to a winner in the style stakes. Model, Karlie Kloss wore a minimal and sleekly designed dress by Stella McCartney that featured a cape on only one shoulder of dress, definitely one way to stand out! Louis Vuitton brand ambassador and Oscar Nominee Michelle Williams opted for monochrome look with a plunging neckline and embellished skirt, whilst keeping the accessories to a minimum and makeup clean and simple. Priyanka Chopra went with a dress that had a bold neckline and geometric sequinned detailing all over that was truly stunning and daring. Isabelle Hubert in Amani Prive also wore white as well as Chrissy Teigen in an embellished Zuhair Murad number and Felicity Jones in a floaty, whimsical piece by Dior.
