The biggest night of award season definitely didn’t disappoint on the fashion front. The Oscars red carpet was full of extravagant gowns featuring everything from deconstructed bodices to capes to ruffles and fringe. We love when attendees take fashion risks, even if they don’t pay off. Hey, it’s the Oscars, go big or go home.
There was a lot of black on the red carpet and plenty of bling. And while nominees like Scarlett Johansson, Cynthia Erivo and Renée Zellweger let their dresses do the sparkling, others opted to shine via statement jewelry, especially necklaces. Necklines ran the gamut from strapless to off the shoulder to plunging. Special shout-out to Janelle Monáe for winning the red carpet with her hooded Ralph Lauren Collection stunner. There were some bright spots at this year’s Oscars, including Mindy Kaling’s golden yellow Dolce & Gabbana number, Florence Pugh’s blue-green Louis Vuitton creation and Kristen Wiig’s larger-than-life Valentino.
