The most important worldwide film gala of the year, the 87th edition of the Academy Awards, was held this past Sunday. Hollywood´s most renowned showed up on the red carpet, dazzling in their glamour. This is a night where millions of people are eagerly watching to see who wins what and equally to see who´s wearing who – it´s the perfect moment for the world´s designers to showcase their breathtaking designs.
The overall dress trends of the evening were a bit of everything, but we narrowed down the selection to white and pastel shades, which could serve as inspirations for your wedding dress. The strapless neckline dominated the looks, along with a few asymmetrical necklines, most of the dresses were tailored lines to compliment the actresses´ figures, though in some cases bold, voluminous skirts swept the red carpet. Of all these choices, we have to give special attention to Lupita Nyong’o´s choice – she always looks incredibly beautiful and poised, and surprises us with her perfect fashion choices. This time she was a sensation in a beautiful Calvin Klein dress composed of 6,000 pearls. There was also the spectacularly beautiful Chanel dress worn by Oscar winner Julianne Moore. The design was tailored especially for her and was adorned with over 80,000 sequins. We also saw some less flashy but very elegant designs like Ralph & Russo ´s pastel pink asymmetrical neckline gown worn by Gwyneth Paltrow. Also of note were Karolina Kurkova´s softly femnie Marchesa dress and Lady Gaga´s bold gown by Alaïa. We can´t help but wonder if she´s trying out potential wedding dresses even since she announced her engagement to Taylor Kinney.
It was definitely a night to make us sit up and notice – we hope you did, too and found some inspiring looks among the stars.
