The Golden Age of Hollywood experienced a bit of a rebirth on this year’s Oscars red carpet with several guests breaking out the va-va-voom in glamorous retro-inspired gowns (by thoroughly modern designers). Perhaps in an homage to the famous Oscar statue, gold was a popular hue and white certainly held its own with several sleek representatives. Vibrant shades of red, silver/gray gowns along with touches of velvet were also front and center. On the embellishment front, everything from fringe to feathers and lace made notable appearances. While there was a bevy of statement-making jewels and dynamic clutches, blue ribbons in support of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) were by far the night’s best accessory. Witness all the fashion highlights from this year’s ceremony in the slideshow above.
