Best Dressed: The Oscars

By Ali McQueen

Another Oscars season has come and gone, and once again the red carpet was filled with actors and actresses sporting stunning designs from the biggest fashion houses in the industry. While the night had highs if its own - finally, Leonardo Dicaprio, finally - quite a few of those also came on the red carpet. Here’s a round-up of the night’s best looks!

Daisy Ridley of newfound Star Wars fame stunned in Chanel, outshining others who also sported looks by Karl Lagerfeld. Her sparkling silver dress with a shorter hemline was a stand-out, especially given the fact that she is a relative newcomer to the awards show and wasn’t the biggest name walking the red carpet on Sunday night. 

Margot Robbie also went for a metallic dress, choosing a gorgeous gold sheath by Tom Ford. True, she probably would have been stunning no matter what she wore, but her gold gown was no exception and she still managed to keep the dramatic dress from overwhelming her. Her dress was very fitting for the occasion - she was twinning with the Oscar statues! 

Jennifer Lawrence showed up looking stunning as usual, wearing a gorgeous black and nude Dior dress. It was no surprise that she wore Dior, it is one of her red carpet go-to designers. While she didn’t win the award for best actress for Joy, she most definitely won the red carpet. We’re also still in love with the platinum hair she has been sporting lately, which really upped the glamour factor. 

Jumpsuit in the front, gown in the back - now trending. Lady Gaga rocked an amazingly structured and dramatic white jumpsuit on Sunday night. While her Oscars look definitely stood out from the more traditional gowns on the red carpet, it actually wasn't especially out of the ordinary for Gaga, who was dressed by her favorite designer and long-time stylist Brandon Maxwell and again wore white (as she did last year). Either way, her look was stunning and she had an incredibly powerful performance on the Oscars stage during the show. 

The final standout look of the night and the clear winner of cutest on the red carpet was nine year-old Jacob Tremblay, who starred in Room. While his co-star Brie Larson won an Oscar for her role in the film, it was Jacob, who was also on stage as a presenter, who stood out in his miniature Armani suit and Darth Vader socks (and yes, he did show these off for the paparazzi).
