Who owned the red carpet this year?
It was a tie between the gowns with frothy and billowing trains and dresses which were almost diaphanous. Bright and bold colours, floral applique embroidery and peak lapel tuxedos emerged to be the key trends this season. Towering over everyone else was Charlize Theron in red Dior couture creation. Her strappy gown had a plunging neckline and she added a neckpiece for the great finish, bringing the focus to her decolletage. It’s always great to see vibrant colours on the red carpet, which is mostly dominated by a sea of blacks. Another bright-hued gown which caught my attention was Olivia Munn’s one-shoulder Stella McCartney number, that stood out because of a sensation of pristine softness it radiated.
One of the key beauty looks which sent the Instagram into a frenzy was of Rooney Mara’s. She wore a sheer and embroidered Givenchy couture gown which had a center slit that exposed a hint of her legs. She accented the look with a bold lip and a sleek top knot. The rhombus slit at the waist exposed a whiff of her perfectly taut midriff making it uber-sexy.
Making a case for the cascading ruffles was the toast of the Oscars, Brie Larson, who rocked a ruffled Gucci number, which had a sheer overlay.
