After the procession of black gowns at the Golden Globe Awards, the pre-eminent red carpet event that is the Oscars was much less sombre and beautifully painted in all the colours of the rainbow. From gleaming metallic shades to vibrant reds, pinks and oranges, or very subtle, dreamy pastels and inevitable bridal whites. The colour palette on the Oscars red carpet was rich, versatile and inspirational.
While some stars channelled classic Hollywood glamour and paired timeless sheath silhouettes with glossy side-swept waves and a bold lipstick, others opted for more daring modern styles.
The key colours of the evening were silver and gold. There were many glitzy sequinned gowns, but two, in particular, caught our eye: Jennifer Lawrence’s Dior gown styled with beach waves and Niwaka jewellery and Gal Gadot’s Mugler dress paired with Tiffany & Co. jewellery and Christian Louboutin shoes. These two silver dresses looked gorgeous against the red backdrop, and we think each of them would make a fabulous second outfit for a wedding reception!
We also spotted a few show-stopping wedding looks. Margot Robbie wore a killer white dress custom-made for her by Chanel and paired it seamlessly with a Cinderella-style mini crystal-shaped bag and shoes by Roger Vivier. Head-to-toe, her look for the Oscars night was red carpet and bridal packed in one and we loved it so much!
Some off-white, pastel-coloured dresses could also be inspirational for brides-to-be! Alison Williams showed up in a stunning wedding-worthy outfit which included a frothy, subtly embellished blush pink ball gown by Armani Prive, Harry Winston jewellery and Brian Atwood shoes. Emily Blunt’s romantic A-line dress by Schiaparelli in a very light shade of blue also had that bridal flair featuring retro-style pleats, high neck, puffy sleeves and floral appliqué details. One of our favourites was also Pamella Rolland’s puffy tulle ballgown worn by Kristin Cavallari.
