The actual Oscar’s red carpet fashion parade started off a bit underwhelming to be honest but was rescued towards the end by go to fashiony movie stars. We’ve insta stalked some of the celeb stylists knowing they were scouting Couture, New York Fashion Week and London so we anticipated some of the gowns that hit the runway would make an appearance on the red carpet and Olivia Wilde, styled by Karla Welch, in Valentino haute couture did not disappoint.
Alicia Vikander’s Louis Vuitton yellow gown was the talk of the Oscar’s but it really wasn’t that spectacular, something was very off maybe it was the bubble bottom that didn’t quite hit the floor or lack of accessories to really make it pop.
Was really hoping Micaela Erlanger, one of the top stylists who dressed Lupita Nyong’o last 2 years would send something stunning down the carpet for 2016 Oscars but no such luck. One person that did surprise was Olivia Munn styled by Jessica Paster, that orange/coral Stella McCartney with the orange lip worked!
Sofia Vergara accented her best assets in Marchesa and Cate Blanchett, styled by Elizabeth Stewart, stayed true in Armani Prive, though Margot Robbie in Tom Ford and Charlize Theron really hit it out of the park in her simple yet statement making Dior gown and drop necklace. Stylist Leslie Fremar dressed Julianne Moore, Reese Witherspoon and Charlize. Continue below for our picks for Best Dressed at the 88th Annual Academy Awards. Though the recognition goes to the stars, the real MVPs are the stylists with the right eye making the magic happen behind the scenes.
