Oscars 2017: The 13 Fashion Statements That Made Us Happier Than 'La La Land'
These free-spirited styles had us smiling wide.
Well, what a night! The 2017 Oscars ended with a twist worthy of a Hollywood film—and the fashion was pretty jaw-dropping as well. (Okay, maybe these looks didn't have us screaming: what the [redacted], but they were still epic.)
This year's parade of tuxes and gowns had an overall feeling of levity and fun. There were ruffles—and layers of necklaces—on men, and women were swathed in feathers, gauzy prints, and rainbow-bright hues. Let's take a look back at some of the styles that had us smiling wide.
Ruth Negga was radiant—and bright red—in a Valentino gown. The socially conscious actress also wore an A.C.L.U. ribbon, which popped against her lipstick-hued frock. Her stylist is Karla Welch.
Hailee Steinfeld looked like a princess channeling a butterfly in Ralph & Russo couture.
Karlie Kloss channeled one of Gwyneth's most iconic looks in a sleek, caped style that said: "I fear no champagne spillage." The dress was by Stella McCartney.
Leslie Mann was full-on Princess Belle (so hot right now) in a full-skirted yellow gown by Zac Posen. The actress works with stylist Jessica Paster.
Pharrell looked tres Chanel in a perfectly tailored tux with—we love this touch—layered necklaces.
Octavia Spencer looked free-spirited and feminine in Marchesa's feathered, silvery gown.
Dakota Johnson said she had "twenty bodyguards" keeping their eye on her museum-quality jewelry from Cartier. Her liquid-gold Gucci gown looked equally as precious. Her stylist is Kate Young.
Kirsten Dunst looked like the classic Dior lady in a glam black gown.
Janelle Monae never shies away from a style statement with a capital S. So why should she back down on Oscar night? The Hidden Figures star had a fully bedazzled moment with Elie Saab couture.
Viola Davis was like a fresh burst of citrus in a bright, halter-neck gown by Armani.
Nicole Kidman was a human flute of champage in Armani Prive. Ever the fashion fan, Nicole was front row at Armani's Paris Fashion Week show.
Emma Stone was well prepared to win in a celebratory gown by Givenchy couture. Fun fact: she's the first actress since Audrey Hepburn to win an Oscar in Givenchy. (Also, did we call the metallic-is-good luck thing or what?)
Charlize Theron could not have looked more regal in a golden gown by Dior couture. Is she not the coolest? Charlize works with stylist Leslie Fremar.
Ryan Gosling wore a custom Gucci tux with a ruffled shirt. You know who can pull that off? Ryan Gosling.
