Annually, not only do the Oscars bring out the biggest and highest esteemed stars in Hollywood ready to make their mark in the filming industry world with a win for their solid acting, but they also bring out those who are the best dressed. At this year’s 87th awards ceremony, celebrities exceeded fashion expectations and showed us what they were made of on the red carpet. From high-slits to the trend of light colored gowns, the stars definitely took our breath away. Take a look at these show stoppers below!
*In no particular order because they’re all d*mn beautiful
Margot Robbe in Saint Laurent
Black is usually the safest color one can go with for an awards show but Margot proved to us that black can still be alluring and sexy if done right. Her bright lip paired with a deep side part ultimately set her overall look off and set her apart from the others.
Rosamund Pike in Givenchy
A gown that accentuates the figure is always a plus and Rosumund definitely has the hourglass frame for this gown. Besides, one can never go wrong with red and a hint of lace together!
Jennifer Lopez in Elie Saab
What is there to say?! Jennifer never really disappoints and she definitely did not in this sparkly, nude toned dress. Accessorized with minimal diamond jewels, this dress proves why she is one of the top fashion icons of our time.
Rita Ora in Marchesca
Rita Ora proved to us that she could change up her look and look very regal in this midnight blue ensemble. Not only did the singer need assistance with her dramatic fishtail train but she hired extra security to protect her jewelry in between the changing of outfits for her performance at the event. Talk about fancy!
Emma Stone in Elie Saab
Emma took us back to the Roaring 20s in this embellished chartreuse gown. She wore matching peep-toe pumps, pulled her ginger hair into a swanky pulled-to-the-side do, and finished off the look with coral lipstick.
Lupita Nyong’o in Calvin Klein
According to published reports, Lupita’s custom gown was studded with 6,000 natural pearls! The dress probably weighed a great amount but she wore it beautifully and gracefully, as she always does. Sidenote: her skin is flawless!
Chrissy Teigen in Zuhair Murad
Chrissy donned a high slit and a very low cut and she looked great doing it! With her tresses in soft waves and popping the smooth look with a dark lip, she was bound to be on a number of best dressed lists this year.
Jenna Dewan-Tatum in Zuhair Murad
It’s no wonder Channing Tatum couldn’t keep his eyes off of his wife: she looked stunning! Less is truly more and it looks great on Jenna!
Zoe Saldana in Versace
It is quite hard to believe Zoe is only three months post having her twin boys… just look at that bod! Clearly enjoying the perks of motherhood with the embrace of her curves in this dress, the choice to go with the color blush for the night was spot on.
