The 2018 endowment deteriorate red carpets have looked a bit opposite than in years past, interjection to stars wearing all-black looks and carrying white roses to support Time’s Up and a fight opposite passionate nuisance and workplace inequality. But for a final uncover of a season, a Academy Awards, stars motionless to go all-out with their style, creation a absolute matter that they are army to be reckoned with, no matter what they’re wearing.
Stylist Elizabeth Stewart told PEOPLE that a Oscars red runner was going to be a “celebration of a year’s best conform along with a best movies,” and a formula did not disappoint. There were standout sparkly looks, sweeping trains and gowns with touching backstories. But out of all a showstopping looks, there were a few that a editors can’t stop articulate about.
Colleen Kratofil, Style Writer-Reporter: My favorite looks of a night were from a stars that went for bold colors on a carpet, but I particularly loved Garner’s aged Hollywood moment in her cobalt Atelier Versace gown. Between a splendid hue, unconditional garment and voluptuous conformation there was no blank her entrance. And I desired how her side-swept wavy blowout and diamond-and-sapphire Piaget drop earrings oozed that sophisticated glamour one expects to see on a Oscars red carpet.
Alex Apatoff, Lifestyle Director: I don’t know if there’s most some-more to contend about Lupita Nyong’o’s character that hasn’t already been said, and as we write this it’s 1:04 a.m. and I’m losing difference to report what already has left me speechless. The star’s sashed gold-and-black Atelier Versace robe was regal, distinguished and spectacular, and she accentuated it (as always) with flawless, courteous makeup and hair. I’d contend she should be a subsequent black of Wakanda, though we need her too most in her stream purpose as ruler of a red carpet.

Kaitlyn Frey, Style Beauty Assistant: There’s so most to adore about a Best Actress nominee’s regretful white Chanel Haute Couture robe (which she had to stitch herself into backstage!). The beaded straps draped off her shoulders gave a singular hold to a elementary column, and nonetheless some might disagree, her transparent tough cosmetic Chanel purchase combined a complicated component to a outfit that we loved. To tip it all off, Margot’s creatively chopped bob styled in effortless, soothing waves is giving me some critical open hair inspo.
Lindy Segal, Style Social Editor: I’ll be honest: we forgot how most we desired saying Sandra Bullock on a red runner until we saw her in this Louis Vuitton gown. For her initial coming during a Oscars in 4 years (she final attended when she was nominated for Gravity in 2014), Bullock comparison this shimmering, high-neck gold-and-black dress estimable of her red runner lapse — we could tell she felt assured in it, and it done her epic pre-show reunion with Practical Magic sister Nicole Kidman all a some-more fun to watch.
Brittany Talarico, Senior Style Editor: Not usually did we adore a a actress’s gunmetal sequin Dior gown, though we also desired her altogether Oscars attitude. (See her now iconic chair-jumping, wine-drinking impulse here.) Once again, Lawrence managed to have a slew of meme-able impulse at a 2018 Academy Awards, branch a awards uncover into an event to dance on a red carpet, splash some Pinot Grigio and of march showcase another tradition Dior robe (which she interconnected with Niwaka wealth and a matter cat eye), capping off her Red Sparrow press debate in loyal high-fashion style. we consider we even got a glance of her change ego Gail.
Sharon Kanter, Deputy Style Director: we adore a impulse when everybody is like WHO’S THAT GIRL?! And Eiza Gonzalez was that for a Oscars final night. She really struck a note that no one else on that red runner did with her neat splendid canary on-trend yellow robe by Ralph Lauren Collection—it was sexy, stylish and bold, but veering into run-down territory. we desired that while many stars went for tradition looks to make a statement, she didn’t need to—she pulled her demeanour true off a runway. If this is what she does for a Oscars, we can’t wait to see more.
Jillian Ruffo, Associate Beauty Editor: I’m a fool for anything shiny, so it’s no warn that Gal’s china sequin Givenchy Haute Couture dress stole my heart. Between a low v-cut neckline that done way for her Tiffany Co Blue Book jewels, a lustrous border bottom and a brew of textures, each fact was improved than a last.
Sarah Ball, Fashion Market Editor: If there’s one luminary who knows how to close down a red carpet, it’s Nicole Kidman — and what’s even some-more extraordinary about it? How many times she does it. This electric blue Armani Privé robe was no disappointment. The vivd blue paint is overwhelming and a fit of this sculptural dress is impeccable. From a swain neckline and oversized crawl — we only adore it all. She looks incredible!
