From peplum detail and the cape effect to structured draping and sheer print; last night’s Academy Awards may have been described as ‘boring’ but the red carpet certainly was not.
Best Supporting Actress winner Lupita Nyong’o once again used bright block colour to create a winning red carpet look. The headband may have made the actress look slightly childish however her elegant, flowing gown by Prada made up for this.
Jennifer Lawrence, now more commonly known as J Law, made up for her shapeless Golden Globes dress by wearing a striking orange gown with peplum detailing. The nominee for best supporting actress looked youthful and classy in this fitted piece by Dior of course.
Both Sandra Bullock and Amy Adams opted for plain navy dresses, focusing on structure and draping instead of embellishment. The Gravity star’s Alexander McQueen gown draped beautifully to one side while the American Hustle actress chose a straight Gucci dress with detailing at the bust.
Cate Blanchett received mixed reviews for her sparkling number while other actresses not even nominated pulled out all the stops, looking incredible. One such star was Kate Hudson who stunned in a white caped Atelier Versace gown. Emma Watson wore Vera Wang looking stunning with a red lip.
Camilla Alves, wife of Matthew McConaughey, was the epitome of class at the awards ceremony and also sporting the cape trend. Her nude number and fitted yet flowing gown was perfect for the partner of an Oscar Best Actor winner.
