The Academy Awards is the biggest night for Hollywood in terms of acting accolades; it’s also the industry’s best and brightest sartorial event.
The evening of the Oscars is when haute couture and star power combine to create a red carpet experience that outshines all others.
In that vein, Sunday, Feb. 28’s ceremony did not disappoint. Every major designer was represented, and the A-list stars who made an appearance were at the top of their game.
If any trends were to be seen, it would be blue and black paired together and all-metallic outfits. Other looks that dominated the carpet, include backless dresses, ladies showing their shoulders and over-the-top baubles (from earrings to necklaces).
