The Academy Awards Red Carpet, affectionately called the “Superbowl of Fashion”, is easily the most looked forward to event of the red carpet season; and last night’s crop of fashion heavy hitters did not disappoint. We saw major trends in metallics, glittering appliqués and bold cuts on celebrity gowns, but a few made our hearts flutter just a bit faster than others. These are a few of our favorites:
Kerry Washington – Kerry Washington has looked exceptional this awards season, even with her growing baby bump, and she simply glowed last night in Jason Wu.
Camila Alves – We love the fit and beautiful blush color of Camila Alves’ strong-shouldered Gabriela Cadena gown.
Lupita Nyong’o – Lupita Nyong’o looked and clearly felt like a fairy tale princess as she floated along the carpet in light blue Prada.
Viola Davis – The vibrant color of this Escada gown looks phenomenal against Viola Davis’ skin, and the strapless cut shows off her killer arms.
Penélope Cruz – Penélope Cruz was draped to perfection in soft pink Giambattista Valli Haute Couture, with a simple black bow belt to show off her waist.
