Hala Kamil In Brandon Maxwell – 2017 Oscars

Syrian refugee, mother of four, and focus of the Academy Award nominated short documentary film ‘Watani: My Homeland’, Hala Kamil made her red carpet debut tonight at the 2017 Oscars in a custom look from Brandon Maxwell.

The two-piece gown consisted of a floor-length crepe black skirt, lilac velvet jacket with layered peplum, and a lilac velvet hijab which she styled with a Jimmy Choo ‘Sweetie’ clutch.

Brandon Maxwell’s inspiration for his work has always been the strong women surrounding him, and as the story of Hala Kamil’s extraordinary life moved him, he was thrilled to create the look for her on this special occasion.

Maxwell said, “To me, every woman is a star and every star has a story. Hala’s story sincerely touched me and I am truly honoured that I had the privilege to create this look for her celebrating this momentous occasion,” Maxwell said. “The goal for my collection is always to empower all women and to not just make them look beautiful, but feel beautiful as well. Hala’s strength and courage throughout her experiences is supremely admirable. Seeing her walk the red carpet full of confidence and elegance, and being a small part of her special night means the world to me. I hope she is having the time of her life.”

Priyanka Chopra In Ralph & Russo Couture – 2017 Oscars

Priyanka Chopra attended the 2017 Oscars on Sunday night (February 26).

The actress wore a Ralph & Russo Spring 2017 Couture gown with Jimmy Choo ‘Pearl’ sandals and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

While I fear Priyanka’s look may get lost in the sea of other white and silver gowns tonight, the geometric gown is truly gorgeous and the sharp lines of the bodice are intriguing and unique.

However, is it fair to say the matching diamond cuffs are a bit too Wonder Woman for my taste?

Scarlett Johansson In Azzedine Alaïa – 2017 Oscars

Scarlett Johansson attended the 2017 Oscars on Sunday night (February 26).

The actress wore a bold printed Azzedine Alaïa gown with Fred Leighton jewels.

I’m immediately drawn to this gown because it’s giving us a much-needed splash of both color and print to tonight’s festivities.

The print is a solid nod to spring, and I love the slightly casual styling choices with the belt and jewelry, although I know some may think it would be better suited to a different red carpet.

Scarlett’s fresh pink lips and cheeks, shimmering eyeshadow and of course her perfectly modern hair are all on point.

Naomie Harris In Calvin Klein By Appointment – 2017 Oscars

Naomie Harris hit the red carpet of the 2017 Oscars on Sunday night (February 26).

The actress wore a white sequin-encrusted Calvin Klein By Appointment gown with Bvlgari jewels and Calvin Klein sandals.

Where to begin with this head-to-toe perfection? The impeccable fit of this dress is a must with this type of gown, and we certainly aren’t disappointed in that regard. The shorter length is a huge change of pace from typical Oscar fare, and then there is that train–I’m going to just need to leave a #fierce here!

And let’s not forget those shoes! Having the pop of bright yellow against her white haute gown is inspired, but the added mirth of the flip-flopped styling is impeccable.

Naomie’s red eyeshadow is striking and perfectly on-trend, and it rounds out this stunning, modern look.

Salma Hayek In Alexander McQueen – 2017 Oscars

Salma Hayek also walked the red carpet at the 2017 Oscars on Sunday (February 26) in Hollywood, California.

Sheer in spirit but not in execution, she wore an Alexander McQueen gown that featured a nude lining underneath the black lace styled with Sophia Webster shoes.

Following the more darkly romantic nature of the dress, she styled it with long waves and a bejeweled headband.
