The Academy Awards always has the fashion world on the edge of their seats, in anticipation of the most gorgeous gowns to walk any red carpet. At this year’s Super Bowl of Hollywood and celebration of film, there was a distinct pattern in color and shape. Neutrals and sequins shone in the camera flashes, while tones of red and purple warmed the Oscar’s carpet. Silhouettes were body conscious, hugging the hips, many flowing outwards, as they hit the floor.
Jennifer Hudson glowed in a persimmon Versace gown, while Sandra Bullock made a statement in a luscious red Vera Wang. Anne Hathaway wore vintage Valentino, hand in hand with the designer himself. Keeping with the costume designer’s of her nominated role in Black Swan, Natalie Portman chose Rodarte, while co-star Mila Kunis sizzled in Elie Saab.
Shimmering in silver, Hilary Swank donned a Gucci sequin and feather number. Halle Berry and Hailee Steinfeld also went for sequins, paired with tulle by Marchesa. Gwyneth Paltrow looked sleek in Calvin Klein Collection and Mandy Moore wore Monique Lhuillier.
