Oscar 2015… The fashion statements of stars


FROM Saint Laurent dress to Oscar de la Renta and Calvin Klein Collection, Maison Margiela Couture dress, Armani, Tom Ford and Elie Saab Haute Couture, it was a celebration of designers at the 2015 Oscars Award. Last year, Lupita Nyong’o’s was inspirational in her dress, and this year, she continued her sartorial dominance as one of the best dressed on the 87th Annual Academy Awards red carpet in custom Calvin Klein Collection.

   Anna Kendrick wowed the crowd early on, in a custom pink Thakoon gown. Margot Robbie, too, stole the crowd’s attention early in the night in a plunging Saint Laurent dress and a statement Van Cleef & Arpels necklace made in the 1930s for the Duchess of Windsor. Naomi Watts added a dose of high fashion glamour in an unconventional Armani Privé gown paired with perfectly un-coiffed hair. 

   Red wasn’t just reserved for the carpet; many of the best looks of the night picked up the vibrant hue. Dakota Johnson chose a crimson Saint Laurent dress for her first major red carpet appearance after the 50 Shades of Grey opening, paired with a sleek ponytail. Rosamund Pike also opted for a red gown, wearing a Givenchy number with textured floral motif, her best choice by far of the awards show season. Solange Knowles didn’t wear a gown, but her vibrant Christian Siriano crepe cape top and pant proved you don’t need to wear a dress to steal the show at the Oscars. 

MANY people were anticipating the men’s clothing choices more than the women’s. Men taking chances seemed to have eclipsed the women in their finery on the red carpet. And so, when David Oyelowo, who was snubbed for an Oscar nomination, walked the red carpet in a burgundy tuxedo by Dolce & Gabbana it made viewers pay attention to the television. 

   At the Oscars both Eddie Redmayne in Alexander McQueen and Ansel Elgort in Prada sported navy tuxedos with black lapels, while Jared Leto certainly didn’t disappoint in a lavender tuxedo and white shoes.
