oscars style

Metallics and spring pastel palettes ruled on last night's Oscars red carpet, and while not everyone got it right, there were a few drop-dead gorgeous looks.

One style winner was Saoirse Ronan, who can rest easy knowing that she made it to the top of many a Best Dressed list today, even if she didn't go home with a Best Actress gong.

The 21-year-old looked breathtaking in a custom-made emerald green Calvin Klein gown, which she said was a nod to her "Irish heritage."

Of course, she wasn't the only one turning heads last night – here's a look at the best and worst of the Academy Awards red carpet.

The Hits

Lady Gaga
Gaga's white ensemble looked like a standard gown from the back, but from the front it was a killer jumpsuit. Love.


Jennifer Lawrence
That sheer neckline tho. J-Law worked it in Dior as always:


Mindy Kaling
Mindy went for understated elegance in a black bodycon number with cobalt blue sleeves and a flowing train.


Pharrel and Helen Lasichanh
Couples' style goals right here:


Margot Robbie
Like Saoirse, Margot went for full-on metallics in a shimmering gold number. While she ran the risk of looking like an Oscars statuette, the risk totally paid off.


Andra Day
The soul singer took things back to a simpler era with a touch of Fifties glamour. If only we could look that perfect in pale yellow…


Sophie Turner
Sophie let her bold red locks do the talking last night, keeping her colour palette neutral in a silver-grey dress and shoes, accessorised with a diamond choker.


The Misses

Kate Winslet
We love you Kate, but that shimmering black fabric is doing nothing for you. Very Debs dress circa 2003…


Alicia Vikander
The puff-ball bottom is retro gone wrong, and the sequin detailing adds nothing. A no from us.- but Alicia took home the Best Supporting Actress trophy so it's not all bad.


Heidi Klum
Heidi rocked up in a what is basically a nightdress, and while we love the pale lavender colour, it's just not an Oscars look.




After weeks of awards ceremonies, from the Golden Globes to the Grammys, the Oscars is one of the final nights for Hollywood's glam pack to show off their red carpet style.

Many stars played it safe last night with gorgeous neutral tones, form fitting gowns and chic cuts. Others (we're looking at you Lady Gaga) went all out for the night, embracing the closing night of the awards season with some seriously crazy designs.

As always, a few key trends showed up again and again with each dress we saw.

Here are some of the best…

1. Whitest and brightest
White and cream dresses were a huge hit last night, with Best Actress winner Julianne Moore dazzling in custom made Chanel, Reese Witherspoon going for a classically cut Tom Ford, and Lupita Nyong'o looking fab as always in Calvin Klein.

2. Beaded beauties
Heavy embellishment and beading were all over last night's red carpet. We're not sure about the colour of Emma Stone's washed out green dress, but we love the cut.  Rosemund Pike stole the show in her scarlet Givenchy number, while Jennifer Aniston looked quite the sex kitten in a plunging Versace gown.

3. Prom Queen
Giant meringue-style dresses made an unexpected comeback last night, but it wasn't always a great choice. Felicity Jones' Alexander McQueen number might have worked were it not for the unflattering silver satin, while the whole world boggled at Lady Gaga's gloves – not to mention her giant Azzedina Alaia dress. As for Jennifer Lopez, she looked undeniably fab in Elie Saab. That neckline!

But even J-Lo fell foul of her too-big dress when she tripped while walking off stage after presenting the award for Best Costume Design:


4. Stunning and sheer
Sheer black gowns were all over the red carpet last night, but again this trend was VERY hit or miss. Margot Robbie and Lily Collins kept their looks demure with just small areas of sheer fabric. As for Rita Ora… well… if your ENTIRE ass is on show then you can probably assume your dress is a tad too sheer!




One of the top fashion events of the year, the stars turned out in all their finery for last night’s Academy Awards.

Nudes were big and while there were no real WOW moments, there were some really nice dresses walking the red carpet.
