9 Outstanding Red Carpet Looks at The Oscars
1/9 All That Glitters: Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer was hard to miss on the red carpet as she steals the spotlight in a fully sequined gold Dior gown. She glams it up Old Hollywood style while keeping things modern with minimal jewellery and loose curls.
2/9 Clean Slate: Jane Fonda
Only Jane can do minimalist with maximum effect. The two-time Academy Award winner didn't scrimp on the wow factor as she stepped out in Olivier Rousteing's creation; a fully embroidered gown in delicate beads of pearls. Sculptural jewellery that goes with the cut-out collar detail completes this look.
3/9 Striking Silhouette: Nicole Kidman
Like the gift that keeps on giving, Nicole serves us another hitmaker in an eye-catching Armani Privé gown. Not one to shy away from huge fashion risks, she dares an oversized bow strategically placed at the hip to emphasise her curves. Sleek hair and dripping diamond earrings to match makes this ensemble impeccable.
4/9 Fairy Princess: Salma Hayek
Salma looking dreamy and every bit like royalty in this custom Gucci gown. Draped with sparkling crystals on the neckline and sleeves, she keeps everything else soft and delicate with a low bun and cascading earrings that matches the skirt of her gown—just missing a tiara perhaps?
5/9 Golden Glow: Lupita Nyong'o
Lupita is statuesque and definitely Oscar-inspired in this gold lamé custom atelier Versace dress, aptly named "Vibranium." She was definitely sending the right vibes on the red carpet as she continues her reign as one of Hollywood's most fashionable. She completes her look with a matching Versace clutch, dewy skin and unexpected blue lids for a bit of edge.
6/9 Ravishing Red: Allison Janney
She came to win, and so she did! Allison was ablaze at the red carpet as she turned up the heat in this Reem Acra dress. The red gown with sweeping sleeves and deep neckline fit her to perfection as she paired it with fierce confidence. Going for monochromatic and understated accessories proved to be the right choice.
7/9 Sweeping Statement: Jennifer Garner
Nothing beats a good comeback! Surfacing from a sea of blue chiffon custom atelier Versace gown, Jennifer couldn't have picked a more appropriate time and place to slay. Often snapped dressed-down looking like the devoted soccer mom she is, Jennifer once again shows her red carpet prowess. Her signature style of looking effortless is evident—from the draping and folds of her dress, the perfectly placed waves in her hair, and that nude lip which complemented her features well.
8/9 Great Gatsby: Gal Gadot
Donning a 1920's-inspired metallic Givenchy gown, Gal Gadot swaps her Wonder Woman cuffs for glittery fringes at the Oscars. She plays glam goddess instead of superhero for the red carpet—portraying both roles stunningly well. Her perfectly coiffed hair, art-deco inspired diamond necklace, and bold red lip was an unmistakable retro giveaway. She keeps her look sublime by letting her playful frock do all the talking—err, shimmying in this case.
9/9 Chic to Chic: Margot Robbie
Margot is known for her edgy style and naughty girl rep, for the Oscars she goes for nice and sweet in an exquisite Chanel number. Proving she is a style chameleon in many ways, she draws the crowd this time with a coy smile almost as delicate as the minaudière she carried. Her cropped hair kept her look current with minimal jewellery and barely there make-up for a fresh look.
