Award shows always manage to stay the hot topic even days following the event. This is not just because of who got the awards or who was the most honored at the awards. No, those themes die down. All that remain in our hearts are the fashion trends the celebrities put forward at the red carpet. They caught our eyes, and now we can’t get them out of our minds!
This year at the 90th Academy Awards, the Hollywood starlets of all ages were making everyone do double takes as they walked by. From plunging necklines to sky-high slits and body-hugging gowns, they all managed to show up with the best combination of sexy and classy. It was obvious that most celebrities opted to show a little more skin than usual. This was highlighted especially due to the fact that everyone at Golden Globes wore black. (However, some actors and actresses wore orange or had an orange pin to show their support for gun control.)
We are going to take a look at all the best and the worst dresses of this year’s Academy Awards:
Some of the fashion that were spectacular include;
Jennifer Lawrence wore a gunmetal beaded Dior gown with loose waves and delicate Niwaka diamonds. Her dress was seamless and elegant, and caught the eyes of many people due to her classiness.
Margot Robbie who was nominated for ‘Actress in a Leading Role’ for her role in “I, Tonya” wore a white Chanel Haute Couture gown. She matched it with beaded straps and a crisscross skirt, and a clear Chanel clutch and Chanel Fine Jewelry. The off-shoulder dress and her charming smile won many hearts.
Nicole Kidman wore a sweetheart neckline Armani Privé bustier gown with exaggerated bow detail and front slit. It was one of the most revealing dresses of the night, and people cannot stop talking about it. She adorned the bright blue gown with black Christian Louboutin pumps and Harry Winston jewelry.
Eliza Gonzalez opted for a bright yellow gown with a scoop neck and saucy side cutouts. The lowcut dress with its strappy backs were a clear standout in its canary yellow. The graceful long earrings and the diamond necklace polished her beauty, giving her a classy and rare look.
Here are some celebrities who very clearly missed the mark:
Salma Hayek is a world renown beauty, and it saddened us to notice that she was one of the few that didn’t manage to look their best. Salma’s custom embellished Gucci dress was the definition of a fashion disaster. She rounded off her look with an old-fashioned metallic clutch and dark lipstick of a different shade of purple. For someone who always seemed to believe that less is more, her dress was quite disappointing.
The singer, St.Vincent had striking details in her “dress”. It had a killer headpiece, with a velvet and puffy asymmetrical shoulder. But there was no escaping how terrible she looked with a dress that was waiting to be a fashion catastrophe. It looked more like an old-fashioned bathing suit than a dress you wear for the Oscars.
