Nicole Kidman In Armani Privé – 2018 Oscars

My jaw dropped upon seeing Nicole Kidman on the 2018 Oscars red carpet on Sunday (March 4) in Hollywood, California.

This was such an iconic moment for Nicole, as this Armani Privé design not only was so striking in its royal-blue colour, it was so stunning on her statuesque frame.

But, more than any of that, is the sculptural extravagance of the bow that commanded the gown.

You may remember Nicole had another memorable best with a bow in a red Balenciaga gown at the 2007 Oscars.

Her styling and beauty look couldn’t have been more glamorous either—with her Harry Winston diamond earrings, sleek locks, and dark ruby-red lip.

Christian Louboutin ‘Jumping’ pumps completed the magnificent entrance.

Andra Day In Zac Posen – 2018 Oscars

Andra Day truly had a moment (or 12) as she created her own personal photo shoot (even laying down!) on the red carpet of the 2018 Oscars in Los Angeles on Sunday (March 4).

The singer and performer wore a Zac Posen Spring 2018 gown, which really makes me wonder who exactly the designer had in mind when he created it.

I really took my time digesting this look, because I wanted to appreciate the unconventional nature and the art of it all, but unfortunately, I never got there. It’s not even just the intentional volume and haphazard seaming–the fabric is simply ugly. It looks much more elegant in the look book, but in person, it is garish.

Her makeup, however, is gorgeous and really is the perfect drama to compete with such a dress.

Lupita Nyong’o In Atelier Versace – 2018 Oscars

Lupita Nyong’o made an appearance at the 2018 Oscars on Sunday (March 4) in Hollywood, California.

The ‘Black Panther’ actress offered up a shimmery embellished goddess moment this evening, with this Atelier Versace embellished gown.

The silhouette was iconic Versace, with the one-shoulder, corseted bodice and the side slit—although I appreciated her withholding the temptation for a leg jut.

Hair jewels complemented the dazzling liquid-metallic, Oscar golden look.

Jennifer Garner In Atelier Versace – 2018 Oscars

Jennifer Garner attended the 2018 Oscars in Los Angeles on Sunday (March 4).

The actress wore a dramatic Atelier Versace gown with truly spectacular jewels.

Jennifer Garner is an unsung hero of the red carpet, right? She always stuns, and rarely gets any accolades for it! Tonight is no different in this gorgeous gown that hits perfection on every point. Her cocktail ring is also one of the highlights of the entire carpet.

Her hair and makeup are also what you call #goals.

St. Vincent In Saint Laurent – 2018 Oscars

St. Vincent is performing at the 2018 Oscars on Sunday (March 4) in Hollywood, California.

But, before the singer took the stage, she was on the red carpet in what I would call a performance look from the Saint Laurent Spring 2018 collection.

Some may have thought that she had forgotten her pants; others may have called this a romper.

But, this was actually a snappy little black mini that was hyper-stylized with the one pouf sleeve and retro-facing sensibility.

With her sculptural hairdo adding to the theatrics, she did not change my mind on this being a performance look—better suited for the stage and not an Oscars red carpet.

But it did align to her eclectic personality and style.

What do you think?

Octavia Spencer In Brandon Maxwell – 2018 Oscars

Octavia Spencer attended the 2018 Oscars in Los Angeles on Sunday (March 4) along with a host of her peers.

The actress wore a custom Brandon Maxwell gown with coordinating emerald jewels.

This color is such perfection on Octavia that I may just start a petition for her to never wear anything but emerald green again! I also simply love the way the pleated necklace lays to create slightly asymmetrical sleeves.

A perfect wavy bob and smokey eye and of course, Octavia’s radiant smile, complete the look.
