Admittedly, the bevy of expensive gowns at this year’s Oscars wasn’t the most exciting we’ve ever seen, but that didn’t stop a few looks from standing out. And among the ones that did, there were some pretty clear cut trends. Take a look at the colors and ideas that dominated the night and let us know if you see any trends you’ll be taking off the red carpet.
If you read our liveblog, you know we weren’t exactly blown away by the sartorial showing on Sunday night’s red carpet. The Oscars aren’t exactly known for being an outré affair, but we were hoping for a little more pizazz and pow from tonight’s honorees. That said, there were some standouts, like Cate Blanchett in Givenchy Couture and nominee Jennifer Lawrence‘s modern and minimalist red dress. And while we tried to stick to five, 14-year-old Hailee Steinfeld and 52-year-old Annette Bening tied for having the hands down most stunningly age appropriate ensembles.
Last night Elle celebrated Tinseltown’s elite at their Women in Hollywood celebration. Vets like Diane Keaton and Goldie Hawn mixed with the younger set, which included Mad Men‘s adorable Kiernan Shipka (who looked like she walked right off the set in her retro frock). The fashionable crowd included Sofia Coppola (classy in black and white), Rachel Zoe (fabulous in fur), Gwyneth Paltrow (punchy in tangerine) and many more.
