The 89th Annual Academy Awards night was one full of drama, on and off the red carpet… from Warren Beatty announcing the wrong Best Picture winner (yes, THAT happened) to old-school glam in all its vintage glory. With fashion taking centerstage, here’s everyone who won big even before the statues were handed out—
Emma Stone in Givenchy: Tiffany & Co. earrings and ring + dance worthy fringed couture gown + Oscar = Winner
Emma Roberts in vintage Armani Privé: Roberts took the 'Red Carpet, Green Dress' challenge in vintage Privé and swarovski jewellery. #SlayGirlSlay
Janelle Monae in Elie Saab: Guess who looked like an intergalactic masterpiece/princess in THE most dramatic get-up of the night?
Karlie Kloss in Stella McCartney: She kept it chic and ethereal in all-white ensemble with the accessory of the night, a blue ACLU ribbon.
Ruth Negga in Valentino: High-neck, sheer yoke couture masterpiece + Irene Neuwirth jewellery with Mozambican rubies = Timeless
We couldn't get enough of the best dressed or the colour trends that emerged out of the red carpet. Here's the low-down on the shade cards that had a glorious night out at the Oscars...
Emma Stone dazzled in her 1920s inspired flapper fringe; Jessica Beil glowed from head-to-toe in a Kaufmanfranco creation; Dakota Johnson’s 50s style satin gown with statement shoulders and a bow waist belt was an instant hit while the ‘mandala’ embellishment on Kidman’s halter-neck dress added an exotic edge to her look. Still wondering why we are sold on gold?
Red ruled the glamorous night and how! While Kristin Cavallari went classic in a structured off-shoulder, we’re legit obsessed with Viola Davis’s vibrant shoulder-baring, floor-sweeping Armani Privé gown. Ruth Negga wowed in a romantic Victorian attire as Ginnifer Goodwin worked cherry red in a sheer Zuhair Murad gown with absolute ease.
Sparkling silver made for the best kind of photo-op for cinema’s biggest and best. Auli’I Cravalho floored with metallic shell-like panels; Olivia Culpo elegantly worked a plunging neckline and glittering tassels in Marchesa while Priyanka Chopra in Ralph & Russo looked statuesque. We absolutely loved the whimsy fantastical vibe that Hailee Steinfeld brought to the red carpet in watercolor floral print and metallic details.
Black + velvet + dramatic ruffles = Brie Larson in a stunning Oscar De La Renta. Kirsten Dunst pulled out all stops in Dior; Taraji P. Henson went for the good old ‘Less is more’ feel in off-shoulder velvet while Vikander’s Louis Vuitton lacey dress made a strong case for romantic goth.
As for everyone who won ON stage, here’s the complete list: WINNERS
