The best and brightest actors and actresses were honored at the 88th annual Academy Awards on Sunday, Feb. 28. While the award shows paid tribute to the performances of Hollywood’s most talented, the red carpet beforehand recognized their impeccable fashion sense. Although the red carpet was filled with designer looks, there were a few that stood out among the rest.
Hollywood’s leading ladies came out to the Dolby Theatre in high style and Priyanka Chopra was no exception. The “Quantico” actress wore a Zuhair Murad gown with a semi-sheer skirt and white floral appliqué. Accentuating her waist with a silver belt, Chopra completed her look with a silver frame clutch and diamond jewelry.
Adding a punch of color to the red carpet was Charlize Theron, who presented at the awards in a bright red Dior gown. Featuring a plunging neckline with split straps, the actress filled in the negative space with a long diamond necklace. The back of Theron’s gown was equally as stunning as the front, cut in a low v that ended near her lower back.
While the ladies brought their A-game, the guys took their standard tuxedos to the next level. Take Sam Smith, for example. The “Writing’s On the Wall” singer took to the Oscars in a three-piece suit by Dunhill. Smith opted for a slim-legged pant, bringing the classic look into the 21st century.
While Smith chose a different trouser silhouette, Eddie Redmayne chose a different blazer style altogether. “The Danish Girl” actor wore a black velvet tuxedo jacket by Alexander McQueen, which he paired with slim-fit trousers and velvet smoking slippers.
Although some actors and actresses won big at the Oscars on Sunday night, these four were most certainly the winners of the red carpet.
