From the constant jibes at Donald Trump to the epic goof-up of the Best Picture Award and the candies being sent through parachutes, the Oscars 2017 will be remembered for many things. However, the classic factor about the award show is the red carpet. The Oscars is an occasion when Hollywood celebrities like to flaunt the best, and designers scamper to get actors to don their creations.
Sparkling jewels, stunning gowns, perfect hairdos and makeup, fashionistas have a field day checking out who wore what to the party. Black, red, metallic and shades of nude and champagne characterized the red carpet this year. From Emma Stone’s classy golden girl look to Hailee Steinfeld’s floral Ralph Russo, here is a look at the Best Dressed Actresses…
The actress took home the Best Actress trophy for La La Land and made sure she sparkled on the gala night. Emma wore a gold gown embellished with Swarovski crystals from Givenchy Haute Couture. She teamed it with bronze satin sandals and clutch. The Riccardo Tisci gown had crystal fringes.
Taraji P Henson
All the actresses from Hidden Figures scored on the red carpet. Taraji P Henson wore a blue velvet gown from Alberta Ferretti that did full justice to her curvaceous figure. A Nirav Modi necklace and emerald ring and Jimmy Choo stilettos and clutch finished off the look.
The Moonlight actress also had a dream night with the film getting awards for Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor. Naomie Harris wore Calvin Klein By Appointment designed by Raf Simons. This was the designer debut on the Hollywood red carpet and a totally smashing one. Mustard heels added a dash of colour to that chic dress.
The 20-year-old gave a glimpse of her sexy body in the most stunning and dreamy manner in a floral Ralph and Russo gown. The ruffled neckline, chic updo and minimal makeup highlighted her natural beauty. Neil Lane jewels included diamond studs, bracelet and a ring.
Amy did not walk the red carpet but looked every inch a stunner as she presented the award for Moonlight. She wore a Tom Ford dress that showed off her cleavage. Bronze clutch and her copper hair styled in side-swept waves made her look perfect.
Loving’s Ruth Negga opted for a customized red Valentino gown accessorized with red headband and dazzling earrings. She wore the ACLU blue ribbon along with others like Karlie Kloss.
Stylist Christina Ehrlich deserves a pat on the back as Brie looked fabulous in this black ruffled Oscar de la Renta gown. Red lips, Neil Lane jewels and three-strap black heels made her look oh-so-classy.
The Fences actress wore a red Armani Prive gown with a silver clutch as she arrived on the red carpet. She was flawless.
Does she look like she’s 50? Salma Hayek proved that she is stunner in the sheer black Alexander McQueen dress with Sophia Webster shoes. Diamond earrings and headband finished off the look. With a lot of cleavage on show, Salma showed how to sexy and elegant at the same time.
Silver and fringes is a tricky combo but Olivia’s Marchesa gown was simply stunning. She looked fabulous. A black clutch and Irene Neuwirth jewellery completed the outfit.
She wore a Dior dress that spelled vintage glamour. Loose waves, bold red lips and smoky eyes made Kirsten all the more beautiful.
