Who won and who lost (our hearts) on the Oscars 2017 red carpet
Hollywood’s biggest night saw all the stars descending onto the red carpet in a sea of shimmering golds, sparkling white and striking blacks. We definitely spotted some hot trends! Here’s a look at some of our favourite looks (and some near misses).
GO FOR GOLD!
These beauties wore the colour of the night and how! From Nicole Kidman’s embellished gold gown to Emma Stone’s flapper-girl inspired fringed piece, gold certainly took the award for leading hue on the red carpet. Jessica Biel’s statement-making gown was a winner but we would have probably ditched the feathered collar. Also how cute does Justin Timberlake look in his crisp black tuxedo?
P.S- We’re not so sure about Dakota Johnson’s choice of head-to-toe gold satin. A tad much maybe?
SPARKLE IN WHITE
Diamonds weren’t the only things that sparkled on the Oscars 2017 red carpet. These leading ladies sure know how to bring the glam quotient in white. Two thumbs up to our very own Priyanka Chopra for stepping out in this sleek white number. Don’t miss Naomie Harris’ sequinned white midi complete with a floor-length cape. Chrissy Teigen sure got our attention in her white embellished gown with a sexy thigh-high slit. Arm candy John Legend just added to the oomph-factor in his classic black tux.
We did like supermodel Karlie Kloss’ white dress with an asymmetric cape we thought it was a teeny bit conservative as well.
BOLD IN BLACK
The colour black on the red carpet may be done to death but these ladies sure gave it a bold spin! Taraji P. Henson was a vision in a black velvet gown that oozed Hollywood drama complete with a sweetheart neckline and side slit. Brie Larson also went for drama in a black velvet gown with exaggerated ruffles along the hemline. We approve!
Our not-so-favourite list surprisingly included Charlize Theron and Halle Berry whose outfits were a bit over the top. Don’t worry ladies, we still love you though.
SHOUTOUT TO THE BOYS
No red carpet list is complete without us swooning over Ryan Gosling. He may not have won the award for best actor but he sure wins our approval in this black tux. Don’t miss the ruffled white shirt that added a nice touch. Special mention to Chris Evans and Dev Patel for ditching black and embracing colour. We love Dev’s sleek white tux and Chris’ unconventional yet bold choice of blue. Well done boys!
