Yes, it’s the night the true stars of Hollywood are honoured, but us here at Fashion North have our eyes on something other than those golden awards. We all know the Oscars red carpet is the king of all red carpets, and this year had an air of sophistication to it. Take a look at some of our best dressed favourites:
Lupita Nyong’o: An all-round definite favourite of the night has to be 12 Years a Slave star, Lupita Nyong’o, in a plunging, delicate blue Prada gown. And, after winning Best Supporting Actress, Lupita earned her current right to keep the red carpet crown once again. A resounding chorus of approval from us!
Naomi Watts: Adding a bit of sparkle to the carpet, Naomi Watts looked gorgeous in floor length Calvin Klein. Naomi stood out with bold red lips, which contrasted with the dusty gown, which was intricately accessorised with sequins. Metallics were another big winner on the carpet last night too.
Angelina Jolie: We’re all still recovering from last year’s Oscars dress, but Angelina has moved onto the next golden opportunity. Angelina shimmered in a gold and silver metallic coated Elie Saab dress, which had a dipped backline and long sleeves.
Olivia Wilde: Olivia went for a monochrome look to dress her baby bump. The Valentino gown had minimal detail, but was accessorised with a bow neck fastening and a white panel at the back.
Anne Hathaway: The Dark Knight actress looked amazing in a halter neck Gucci dress. The dress, which suited Anne’s figure perfectly, was detailed with a metallic silver panel to the front. She even went a little daring with a split to the back of her skirt. Not to be all dull, there were some stand out colours of the night too.
Jennifer Lawrence: Jennifer looked incredible in a hot red Dior dress. The actress, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actress, had a peplum detail to the sides and accessorised with a stunning draped back necklace. And, not to be upstaged by herself, Jennifer took a stumble earlier this time on the red carpet – best to get it out the way early!
Amy Adams: The American Hustle star looked sophisticated in a navy blue Gucci gown. The strapless, floor length gown also had a peplum detail like Jennifer’s. Although a simple dress, Amy still managed to look stunning.
