Red Carpet: The Best from Oscars 2016

Red carpet at the Academy Awards (commonly known as Oscars) can be considered the biggest fashion show in the world, and one of the most talked-about celebrity events of the year. Yesterday the 88th Academy Awards ceremony honoured the best films of 2015 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles. Actor Chris Rock hosted the show for the second time, having previously hosted the ceremony in 2005. You can find the whole list of Oscar winners below, but let us focus on the main trends and looks of the night.

Red Carpet: The Best from Oscars 2016

Strapless and skinny strap dresses, pastel, classic black mixed with different textures, various shades of green (from rich emeralds to crisp mints and seafoams), sequin embellished dresses – those are some of the main trends we have spotted.

Tina Fey and Reese Witherspoon both chose purple, strapless gowns for the Oscars, and ended up being Oscars twins. Lady Gaga opted for angelic, wearing a white pantsuit with an overskirt designed by her stylist Brandon Maxwell. Charlize Theron looked stunning in a classic red carpet dress by Christian Dior, finishing the look with a simple long necklace. This year’s Best Picture winner’s star Rachel McAdams stunned  in a silky green August Getty Attelier, keeping the red carpet leg-bombing tradition. The Modern Family star Sofia Vergara looked amazing in the classy midnight blue custom Marchesa gown. Brie Larson won the Best Actress award for her lead role in Room, and looked incredible in the blue Gucci dress.

Saoirse Ronan, Naomi Watts, Margot Robbie and Daisy Ridley have followed the sparkles and sequins trend and sparkled in custom Calvin Klein Collection emerald green sequin gown,  Armani Prive, Diane von Furstenberg and Chanel Haute Couture silver sequinned dresses, respectively.

Alicia Vikander, who won the Best Supporting Actress award for her performance in The Danish Girl, created a princess look with the stunning yellow Louis Vuitton dress, looking like a real life version of Belle from the Beauty and the Beast.
