Best Dresses for Oscars 2018
Nicole Kidman in Armani Privé.
Kidman usually stuns on the red carpet, and this year was no exception. This gown is a bold look, from the gorgeous blue colour, the plunging neckline, and the high front slit. Not to mention the large bow right in the middle of the action, making a statement yet masterfully not overwhelming the look.
Greta Gerwig in Rodarte.
The colour of this dress is absolutely gorgeous—a warm yet vibrant yellow which helped Gerwig stand out on the red carpet. The embroidered beading is an excellent touch—not too much detailing, just enough to let the colour stand out and give the dress a soft finish. The bold necklace added extra glamour to an already lovely look.
ane Fonda in Balmain.
With the structured and exaggerated shoulders, this dress is classic Balmain. The gown is dignified, yet with a touch of daring thanks to the neckline and the pointed detailing that beautifully frames her neck and collarbone. It’s fitted perfectly and she looked stunning. The best part of her outfit was, of course, the Time’s Up pin she wore in support of the movement that is sweeping Hollywood.
Allison Janney in Reem Acr.
This look is pure drama. The deep red colour is bold and works so well on Janney. It’s a sleek dress, fitted perfectly with no extra detailing, letting Janney shine. The dramatic sleeves and neckline take it from being a classic red dress into something really unique.
Lupita Nyong’o in Versac.
This is not a minimalistic or shy dress. The gold metallic fabric and the sash are reminiscent of armour, a warrior vibe that is fitting due to her role in Black Panther. The asymmetrical shoulders are very on trend and, along with the slit, add even more dazzle to this look. The gold strand braided into her hair was the perfect finishing touch, really tying the look together.
Margot Robbie in Chanel Haute Couture.
At first glance, this seems to be just a simple white dress. Looking closer, it has subtle details that really elevate it. The train, the arm straps, the tulip-like layering in the skirt, all combine to make a classic, elegant, glamorous gown.
al Gadot in Givench.
This metallic silver dress is undeniably eye-catching, with a 1920s flapper vibe thanks to the fringe. The fringe also adds a bit of whimsy and fun to what is otherwise an intensely dazzling and glamorous dress, and the statement necklace really brings the whole look together.
