Trends were: a lot of white, shimmer and full-skirted dresses. First the ladies who were nominated and then my favourites.
Emma Stone wore a gold Givenchy Couture gown with beaded and fringe. She styled the look with gold and diamond jewels, classic Hollywood waves and beautiful eye makeup. Love this look for her. And it's kind of La La Land-y.
Isabelle Huppert opted for long sleeved custom Armani Privé gown. So elegant yet edgy because of her dark manicure and red lips.
Ruth Negga wore a long-sleeved, red Valentino Couture gown with Irene Neuwirth, Gemfields jewels, headband and the blue ribbon in support of ACLU (we've seen ribbons on many actresses).
Meryl Streep in a custom Elie Saab Couture embellished design that was rendered in a deep teal hue. Charlotte Olympia clutch and Fred Leighton jewels completed her look. Not a fan of trousers and skirt but it's Meryl so she's amazing anyway.
Viola Davis was a nice surprise. The actress wore a red custom Armani Privé gown. And how cute is her new do!
Nicole Kidman also in a custom nude Armani Privé dress with Harry Winston diamond and ruby jewelry. After her amazing look at BAFTAs I hoped for more. Yet she still looks gracious.
Naomie Harris wore a white Calvin Klein By Appointment dress with Bvlgari jewels and awesome Calvin Klein sandals. What a beautiful modern look!
Michelle Williams in a Louis Vuitton design. I hoped for something more edgy. It's a bit boring.
Octavia Spencer in a Marchesa gown with Stuart Weitzman heels and Forevermark Diamonds. Not impressed this time.
Not the most glamorous and it would be better suited for a different red carpet but I simply love this look. Scarlett Johansson wore printed Azzedine Alaïa gown with Fred Leighton jewels. I also love the styling choices with the belt and jewelry.
First-timer at the Oscars and she already gave us 3 great looks (one will be in the next post where I'll have Vanity Fair Oscar party best dressed). The Moana actress Auli’i Cravalho wore an art deco inspired Rubin Singer gown (in the middle) with a white box clutch and gold + diamond jewels. When she performed she wore a beautiful red ball gown. My star of the night.
Sara Bareilles was my fav lady in red at the red carpet. She opeted for a Romona Keveza strapless dress with gold Marco Bicego Jewelry.
Chrissy Teigen wowed us again in a Zuhair Murad Spring 2017 Couture gown with dazzling accessories.
Taraji P. Henson looked striking in a Alberta Ferretti gown iced with off-the-shoulder plunge neckline and high slit. She accessorized with a Nirav Modi necklace and a Jimmy Choo clutch.
My fav dramatic look was by Janelle Monae. She wore an Elie Saab Fall 2016 Couture accessorized with Forevermark Diamonds. The way Janelle wore the dress. Just great!
Brie Larson in her Oscar de la Renta custom gown. Not a fan of the ruffles but this dress looked amazing in motion. A hot orange-red lip polished off the look with additional flair.
Laura Dern sparkled in a custom Rodarte gown. I adore this midnight-navy colour and the sequined effect.
With this face and body you don't need much. Karlie Kloss opted for a minimalist Stella McCartney gown with the cape detailing. She styled the look with a Roger Vivier Boite de Nuit Bracelet bag and Nirav Modi jewels.
I wasn't sure for the last 5 looks but they were still solid. Charlize Theron in a shimmering Christian Dior gown with Chopard jewels. The thing I love most here are Charlize’s massive diamond earrings that are intentionally mismatched. Similarly as Nicole, she can were anything with this elegance and poise.
Jessical Biel opted for a shining KaufmanFranco Pre-Fall 2017 gown with the statement collar necklace from Tiffany & Co. She wore it well but I don't like the hairstyle.
Darby Stanchfield wore a Georges Chakra gown with a cape and overlay.
Priyanka Chopra in a Ralph & Russo dress with Jimmy Choo sandals and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. I like this interesting geometric gorgeous gown but I'm not impressed about bracelets on both hands.
Sofia Carson in a princess gown from the Monique Lhuillier. Youthfully whimsical with delicate, golden embellishment, frothy tulle layers and red pout.
