Although those running The Oscars may have got it wrong when they mistakenly announced La La Land as Best Picture, those attending the event got it so right with their styling. The last red carpet of the awards season was laden with beautifully dressed members of the film industry. Impact Style has selected just some of the best ensembles that appeared on this year’s carpet.
The leading lady in La La Land brought some twenties nostalgia in the gold, fringe layered Givenchy Haute Couture. This is one of Ricardo Tisci’s last designs as Creative Director of Givenchy.
Taraji P. Henson
One of my personal favourites, Taraji Henson demonstrates that a simple, well-cut gown can be so effective in the black, velvet Alberta Ferretti that she wore to the event. The sweetheart neckline and thigh-high slit show off Henson’s envy-worthy figure.
The dramatic, mixed-metal neckpiece on Jessica Biel’s gold, sequinned Kaufmanfranco gown is the epitome of the perfect finishing touch to an ensemble.
For the fashion-inclined, it is hard to ignore the emerging ruffle trend of this season. Brie Larson nails this trend in a black, velvet Oscar de la Renta dress. The sweetheart neckline, which is seen on Larson’s gown, proved popular at this year’s event.
From the high, Victorian-inspired neckline and layered tulle to the neutral, floral pattern, the Ralph and Russo dress that The Edge of Seventeen actress wore to the awards ceremony is a beautiful combination of varying elements.
It wouldn’t be a Hollywood awards ceremony without some glitz and Salma Hayek brings it in abundance. The black, embellished Alexander McQueen creation that the actress wore on the red carpet is absolutely exquisite.
The Lion actress brought old-school Hollywood glam with a modern twist to the event in a nude Armani Prive dress and statement red lipstick.
Octavia Spencer’s Marchesa gown is on the same level as her stunning portrayal of Dorothy Vaughan in Hidden Figures.
It is rare that a man opts to wear a ruffled shirt for any other reason than humour. However, Ryan Gosling makes a fashion statement in a white, ruffled shirt and black, tailored two-piece by Gucci. He looks dapper!
Nominee for Best Supporting Actor – Mahershala Ali – looked ever so handsome in his all-black ensemble by Ermengildo Zegna Couture. Down to the last detail, including the monochrome, polka-dot pocket square, Ali appears suave and sophisticated.
I could not compile a best dressed list without mentioning the youngest attendee of the event – Sunny Pawar. The Lion actor looked adorable in his monochrome tuxedo and multi-tonal trainers. Pawar is going to be quite the heartbreaker when he grows up!
