Karlie Kloss In Stella McCartney – 2017 Oscars

Karlie Kloss was also in attendance at the 2017 Oscars on Sunday (February 26) in Hollywood, California.

The supermodel abided by her minimalist mantra and wore a Stella McCartney gown that achieved more striking presence with the cape detailing.

With a blue ribbon in support of ACLU pinned to her side, she also styled the look with a Roger Vivier Boite de Nuit Bracelet bag and Nirav Modi jewels

Given the high neckline and silhouette of the dress, the choker might have been a bit overkill.

Taraji P. Henson In Alberta Ferretti – 2017 Oscars

Taraji P. Henson made a striking turn down the 2017 Oscars on Sunday (February 26) in Hollywood, California.

Fierce took on new meaning with her midnight-sapphire Alberta Ferretti gown iced with a Nirav Modi bib necklace and a Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ clutch.

I love how the dark dress—seemingly black at first glance—had additional dimension by virtue of its hue.

From the perfect, off-the-shoulder plunge neckline to the just-high-enough slit, not to mention her voluminous, wavy bob and seductive smoky-navy eye, here we had another look that exuded a modern call to old Hollywood glam.

Head-turning and magnetic, this entrance saw Taraji at her gorgeous best.

Janelle Monae In Elie Saab Couture – 2017 Oscars

As we expected, Janelle Monae made a grand entrance at the 2017 Oscars on Sunday (February 26) in Hollywood, California.

Channeling the metallic mood she set at the Pre-Oscar Awards dinner, she wore an Elie Saab Fall 2016 Couture masterwork accessorized with Forevermark Diamonds.

Brimming with the intricacy of sparkling embellishment, a period silhouette, and a flock of the most fashionable birds, the gown took flight with all the drama we’d anticipate from Janelle, but with an all-new spirit that stepped outside her graphic, black-and-white box.

She even skipped her signature red lip and styled her hair into a precious, Jennifer Behr headband-topped pixie for another layer of fresh intrigue.

This could have translated as a heavy, overly wrought look but she commanded it with such lightness of form.

It took my breath away.

Auli’i Cravalho In Rubin Singer – 2017 Oscars

Actress Auli’i Cravalho attended the 2017 Oscars on Sunday night (February 26).

The ‘Moana’ actress wore an art deco inspired Rubin Singer Pre-Fall 2017 gown with a white box clutch and gold and diamond jewels.

As a first-timer at the Oscars, Auli’i totally knocked it out of the park for me. At just 16-year-old, the gown is fittingly elegant for the occasion, but also youthful and fun with it’s structural detailing.

Her long, soft curls, and fresh makeup and mani complete a wonderful first turn on the biggest red carpet in Hollywood.

Leslie Mann In Zac Posen – 2017 Oscars


Leslie Mann was also at the 2017 Oscars on Sunday (February 26) in Hollywood, California.

There’s no question that vivacious colour on the red carpet, such as this chartreuse hue, makes a striking impact—especially when rendered in voluminous quantity.

Despite the rather outsized proportions of this Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2017 gown with its mega-pouf, parachute skirt that could easily look deflated, she managed it with radiance and a smile.

Yet, still that sea of fabric can be a challenge to wade through, leaving something to be desired. Sometimes dresses are better left to the lookbook.

Thoughts?

Darby Stanchfield In Georges Chakra Couture – 2017 Oscars

Darby Stanchfield attended the red carpet of the 2017 Oscars on Sunday night (February 26).

The actress wore a Georges Chakra Spring 2017 Couture gown with a Rubeus Milano ‘Red Carpet’ silver python box clutch.

I’m always crazy about a cape moment, and this gown does nothing to change that. While the basis of the dress is a simple white sheath, the gauzy overlay and eyelet-inspired detailing is extremely unique from a design standpoint, and gives the viewer lots of interest to enjoy.

Her sleek waves and dramatic pearl and turquoise earrings are the perfect styling choices to accompany the look.

Emma Roberts In Armani Privé – 2017 Oscars


Emma Roberts cut a sophisticated profile at the 2017 Oscars on Sunday (February 26) in Hollywood, California.

Old Hollywood glamour was alive and well in her look consisting of an Armani Privé custom gown and Atelier Swarovski Fine Jewelry.

Oozing with quiet allure, I loved every inch of this outing—from the subtle seduction of the lace bodice to the structured cummerbund and the delicate layers of the tiered, embroidered skirt.

Those fiery, Veronica Lake waves and matte red lip only were the icing on the cake, setting the look aflame.

Sofia Boutella In Chanel Couture – 2017 Oscars


Sofia Boutella attended the 2017 Oscars on Sunday (February 26) in Hollywood, California.

She donned a Chanel Spring 2017 Couture dress that showcased both the glitzy sparkle and the feathered glamour that defined a number of pieces from this collection.

Yet the magical whimsy of the pouf-y hem and silver-encrusted embellishment was lost off the runway. I blame the edits that were made to the gown—from the revised neckline to the missing belt and lacklustre feathers.

What did you make of it?
