Oscars 2016: The 10 Best Dresses From the Red Carpet. Vote Your Favorite
At last, it’s Oscar night!
Hollywood awards season 2016 seemed to last forever, and we’ve seen some terrific fashion from the Golden Globe Awards in January, to the SAGs, but tonight, the stars culminated the last major red carpet of of the year in absolute elegance. And while awards-show pros, such as Cate Blanchett and Naomi Watts pulled out all the stops and looked amazing, 2016 has really been the year of the ingenue. Saoirse Ronan, Alicia Vikander, and Brie Larson, are this year’s breakout stars, and not just when it comes to their performances—but when it comes to their style too. All three actresses have come into their own, each choosing looks that are very much on-trend, but also reflect their own individual styles. For Vikander, it’s classic meets edgy, as she’s worn Louis Vuitton gowns with embellishment and sequins. Ronan, on the other hand found a softer touch with light colors and wispy fabrics in dresses by Michael Kors and others. Lastly, Larson has gone full-on Ava Gardner—with a 2016 edge—via strong metallic looks and body-con silhouettes. It’s been fascinating to watch these three stars establish their respective looks—and tonight, they outdid themselves.
While all the nominees stood out, the presenters also brought it. Sofia Vergara, Charlize Theron, and Jennifer Garner certainly know their angles. Each chose dresses that will certainly take their places in the annals of Oscar fashion.
With so many options (see them all here) it was a tough year to pick our faves. But if you’re short on time (Or hello, are still watching the show! Important, yah?), these are the 10 very best looks of Oscars 2016. So definitely check them out, and after you do, be sure to take our poll and vote your favorite.
