Let’s face it, we love fashion. So what is our favorite day of the year? Oscar Sunday. Not only do we love the film industry, but we love the fashion during awards season. From the beautiful dresses to the slick tuxedos, the fashion is what rules the headlines. Whether the celebrities made the Best Dressed list or had the biggest fashion flop, there is always something to talk about.
I’m sure we are not the only ones who have dreamed about walking the red carpet in a beautiful designer gown right off the runway. I mean hello, these awards show attendees get to be a prince or princess for the day! It must be exhausting having your stylist and glam squad pamper you all day. All jokes aside… the fashion on the red carpet gets better each awards season, and this year was no different. Here are some of our fashion faves.
Lupita Nyong’o: Princess Moment
Let’s face it, Lupita has knocked it out of the park when it comes to fashion for her first awards season. Not only that but she is such an eloquent speaker and is so gracious for being welcomed to the film industry, that she has won over the world’s heart. Lupita started the awards season with her statement Ralph Lauren bold red cape dress at the Golden Globes and then looked gorgeous in teal at the SAG Awards in her Gucci gown. With all of her bright colors and structured dress choices, we were waiting in anticipation for her big moment at the Oscars. And boy, she did not disappoint. When Lupita stepped out onto the red carpet at the Academy Awards, she took our breath away. That light blue custom Prada gown was absolutely stunning. She had her princess moment. To top it all off, winning her first Oscar was the perfect way to end her birthday weekend. Congrats, Lupita!
Jennifer Lawrence: Girl Crush
We all want to be Jennifer’s friend. She is the girl next door that is just like us. She always looks beautiful at awards shows, but it’s her hilarious no-filter interviews and occasional stumbles that make headlines. When she stepped out of the car at the Academy Awards, everyone loved her bold color choice and styled-back hair. The red Dior peplum gown was perfect for this Oscar winner. It was simple, elegant, and very flattering. And of course, it’s not the Oscars without a red carpet fall from the beautiful JLaw. She was pure perfection.
Charlize Theron: Sleek and Sexy
Wow. Charlize can do no wrong. She may be an awards show veteran, but she has yet to have a major fashion faux pas. Her black Dior dress reminded us of old Hollywood glam. The sleek hair and bold statement necklace perfectly completed the outfit. The curve hugging silhouette and nude straps made this dress stand out as one we could look at for days. Simplicity is key when it comes to pure elegance, and Charlize nailed it, if you ask me.
Sandra Bullock: Timeless Beauty
Sandra has been taking fashion risks this awards season, and they have been paying off. However, for the Academy Awards, she opted for a more classic silhouette, and we loved it! You can’t go wrong with a navy blue draped Alexander McQueen. She looked regal and classic with her hair curled to one side and simple jewels. Sandra had that timeless beauty about her, and we loved her fashion choices this awards season.
Cate Blanchett: Belle of the Ball
Of course, we couldn’t forget about the big winner, Cate! The Best Actress winner looked angelic in Giorgio Armani. This nude gown is sexy, elegant and fun all in one! Her hair, makeup and jewelry perfectly complimented the gown and made her shine on the red carpet. The dress perfectly fit Cate’s poised and classy personality, and it was the perfect gown to wear for the big win!
All in all, everyone at the Oscars looked absolutely beautiful. Even some of the men took fashion risks and wore bold, statement suits. Not only was the fashion incredible, but the show was a huge success. Ellen is absolutely hilarious, and watching Brad Pitt pass out pizza plates was probably the highlight of the night. Congrats to all of the winners!
