(PCM) The red carpet for the 91st Oscar Awards almost reminded us of a baby shower theme, as it was a sea of pink and blue hues that most celebrities donned for their red carpet look.
The men were all looking quite dapper in their custom suits (and suit dresses) and we also saw a ton of leading ladies choosing more comfortable looks this year which included sophisticated pantsuits and flowy bohemian style dresses.
According to CNN.com, “Lady Gaga evoked the spirit of vintage Hollywood in a stunning black Alexander McQueen dress. She completed the look with elegant evening gloves and a diamond Tiffany’s necklace once worn by Audrey Hepburn.
Fellow nominee Melissa McCarthy was among a number of actresses seen sporting powerful pantsuits, wowing onlookers in a black and white ensemble by Brandon Maxwell. “The Wife” star Glenn Close, meanwhile, wore a gold Carolina Herrera dress (in a shade not dissimilar from the statue she hoped to take home) created from an astonishing 4 million beads.
The supporting actress nominees arguably eclipsed their lead actress counterparts, however, with Regina King and Amy Adams both opting for sophistication over spectacle. Emma Stone proved more divisive: Her elaborately sequined floor-length gown sparked widespread debate on social media, where it drew gastronomical comparisons from waffles and honeycomb to burned fish skin.
By and large, the men played it safe, with muted tones and sharp tailoring reigning large. Rami Malek and Bradley Cooper were among the male nominees demonstrating how to make a classic black tux look effortless. ”
