It was the year of the metallic and pastels gowns, but no matter the color the confidence and talent that took the red carpet was enough to stun us all.
Not only were there a wide array of hair and makeup at this year’s Oscars, but the styling was very diverse as well. The off-the-runway trends paired with everything from gold to silver jewelry and flowing to structure hairstyles had us on our toes the entire time. Here are some of our favorites from the runway that shared their confidence as well as style on the red carpet.
This has been the year of Lupita Nyong’o. She seems to have taken the cake at every award show this season and the Oscars were no exception. Gracing the red carpet in a flowing powder blue gown custom made by Prada, Lupita accessorized with a beautiful headband and a confidence that was radiant to all.
Her third Oscar nomination and Jennifer Lawrence has yet to fail us on the red carpet. Simplicity and uniqueness come to mind when complimenting her style. Wearing a stunning Dior gown and her trendsetting backwards necklace, Lawrence strikes an elegant pose.
Chrissy Teigen took the red carpet in a Monique Lhuillier Fall 2014 gown. In a strapless and elegantly styled black gown with pink printed flowers, she took the carpet looking chic and effortless and landed among our best dressed. John Legend as her arm candy didn’t hurt either.
Kate Hudson looked flawless as she took the red carpet in a stunning Atelier Versace gown. The caped number accompanied by her subtle silver jewelry and matching clutch was the perfect way to make a statement at this year’s Oscars. As a present, Kate’s gorgeous hair and subtle yet stunning makeup looked amazing all throughout the night.
To no surprise, Kerry Washington took home one of our favorite looks of the night. Sporting a gorgeous mauve Jason Wu gown accompanied by a perfectly paired shoe and diamond bangles, she had everything pulled together perfectly. Add to that a plum lipstick and windswept hair and you’ve got yourself the recipe for a perfect red carpet look.
Camilla Alves kept the pastel trend alive in her gorgeous Versace gown. With a pale pink and a clutch to match, what really put her over the top was her amazing hair and makeup. Styled in a naked lip that matched her soft gown, Camilla looked flawless as she joined Matthew McConaughey on the red carpet.
Sandra Bullock brought a timeless and classic look to the red carpet as she flaunted her elegant and flawless style. Going against this year’s trends in a standout navy Alexander McQueen gown, Sandra paired her stunning gown with unique Lorraine Schwartz diamond jewelry for a perfect and show-stopping look.
