Looks I Love: 90th Academy Awards

Tonight marked the 90th year of the Academy Awards also known as the 2018 Oscars. The ceremony took place at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles’ iconic Hollywood and Highland Center, across the street and a few doors down from the 1st ceremony’s location back in 1929, The Roosevelt Theater.

90 years of film was celebrated tonight and I loved all of the montages of movies through the years. However, if I were to be honest, out of this year’s nominated movies, I only watched one (Coco). And if I were to continue to be honest, I watch mainly for the red carpet fashion. But you already knew that! So without further ado…

Taraji P. Henson was one of the first actresses I saw on the red carpet tonight and I instantly loved her look. The Empire star was styled in a black custom Vera Wang gown. The tulle gown featured an extremely high front slit, but Taraji worked the red carpet like it was nothing. I also loved the sheer sleeve attachments. I feel like she always pushes the limits on the red carpet and she does a great job each time. | Photo Source: Frazer Harrison/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |

Gina Rodriguez sparkled in a nude Zuhair Murad gown. As soon as I saw this dress, it seemed so familiar to me and I still can’t shake that feeling. But nonetheless, this dress was gorgeous. I loved the low cut neckline, the silver embellishment, and the train. As she walked the red carpet with her beau, she looked like a beautiful princess in love! | Photo Source:  Frazer Harrison/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |

Zendaya will always appear on my “Looks I Love” series. She’s the fashion inspiration of her generation. Tonight, the Greatest Showman star kept it neutral in a brown Giambattista Valli Haute Couture dress. The chiffon dress showcased an off the shoulder look and she looked like a chic goddess. Zendaya dresses her age and doesn’t try to conform to any specific look or expectation, and that’s what I absolutely love about her. | Photo Source: Frazer Harrison/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |

Margot Robbie was part of one of the biggest fashion trends of the night. Many actresses showed up in neutral colors, specifically white. The Best Actress nominee was stunning in a white Chanel dress. The off the shoulder dress featured some detail draped across the neckline before going off to form sleeves. The corset bodice clung perfectly to her, making her a vision in white. Out of all the white dresses, this was definitely my favorite. | Photo Source: Source: Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |

Emma Stone was absolutely stunning tonight. And she wasn’t even wearing a lavish gown. She went a complete 180 from last year’s golden and glamorous Givenchy gown. She walked the red carpet and presented in a Louis Vuitton pantsuit. She wore a maroon colored, satin blazer belted with pink. She kept it simple on the bottom with some black slacks and black heels. I liked how she went against the norm tonight. Emma’s one of those actresses that keeps it real. I wish I could be BFFs with Emma [and Jennifer Lawrence]. | Photo Source: Frazer Harrison/Getty Images North America via Zimbio |

While the above looks were my favorites, those weren’t the only looks I loved! Here are a few other looks that caught my eye tonight:

Looks I Love: Oscars 2017

Red carpet season has officially come to an end and the stars of the season made sure they all looked good at Hollywood’s biggest award show, the Academy Awards. I started out with 15 looks that I love, but then I narrowed it down to 13. I probably should’ve narrowed it down more, but I practically loved everything I saw!

5 under 25

Olivia Culpo (24) – The former Miss USA stunned in a grey gown, custom made by Marchesa. Not only did she look good with the fringe, but she did some good with that dress, partnering with Stella Artois and Water.org.

Karlie Kloss (24) – I’m still wondering what Karlie Kloss was doing at the Academy Awards, but either way, she rocked it. We all know she’s used to the runway, so she made walking the red carpet look like a walk in the park. She looked fierce in the all white ensemble by Tom Ford. The cape, the jewelry, the hair…it was everything. Also, Karlie was one of the many celebrities wearing a blue ribbon showing their support for the ACLU.

Sofia Carson (23) – Sofia is known for playing the daughter of the evil queen from Snow White, but tonight she looked like an absolute princess. She chose to walk her first Oscar’s red carpet with a Monique L’huillier gown. The gold detail on the dress matched perfectly with the gold hairpiece. The sweetheart neckline was perfect for her as well!

Hailee Steinfeld (20) – Hailee looked gorgeous. I absolutely had no words when I first saw her rocking that Ralph and Russo dress. I’m glad she had her hair up, because she showed off the beautiful halter style neckline. The floral detail from head to toe made the dress look so beautiful and elegant.

Auli’i Cravalho (16) – She made her debut at the Oscars in a white gown by Rubin Singe. This dress also had some gold detail that made it look like shells on the beach, fitting for the “Moana” star.  I’m sure it’s not an easy task to walk the red carpet for the first time among so many veteran actors and actresses, but she did amazing. Her look was simple, yet perfect for her.

Red Carpet #RelationshipGoals


Chrissy Teigen & John Legend – These two are known to be #RelationshipGoals. Chrissy chose to go with a white dress by Zuhair Murad. It was a bit conservative with long sleeves, but the high slit gave it the sexy look. The silver details and the belt were perfect for the dress and accentuated the right places! John definitely complimented her in his Gucci  tuxedo.

Jessica Biel & Justin Timberlake – I’m not used to seeing these two together on the red carpet, but in their rare appearance together, they looked perfect. Jessica chose to go gold in Kaufman Franco. She shined, while Justin looked so dapper in Tom Ford.

Very Velvet 

Brie Larson – Last year, Brie stunned and won in a blue Gucci dress. This year she continued to win the red carpet in a black velevt Oscar de la Renta piece. The mermaid style dress paired with the neckline is absolutely stunning. This dress is probably in my top 5.

Taraji P. Henson – Taraji always looks good on the red carpet and she always looks fierce in whatever she decides to wear. Today, she graced the Oscars red carpet in an Alberta Ferreti gown. I believe the color is a deep violet, which looks great on her skin tone. It was a simple and classic look yet super sexy with the low cut and high leg slit.

Best Supporting Actresses

Alicia Vikander – Last year, Alicia stole our hearts in a yellow Louis Vuitton gown as she accepted her Oscar for the Best Supporting Actress. This year she decided to tone down the color with a simple black dress by the same designer, Louis Vuitton. The layers, the ruffles, the lace, the necklace – it looked perfect for Alicia’s petite figure.

Viola Davis – Viola walked the red carpet and accepted her Oscar in a red (or maybe blood orange) Armani Prive gown.The off-the-shoulder gown looked so elegant and classic. I noticed most of the actresses walking the red carpet wore some neutral colors, so I’m glad that Viola confidently chose to go with a brighter color. I’m always looking forward to her acceptance speeches and she delivered hers looking as beautiful as ever.

The Emmas

Emma Roberts – I caught the red carpet coverage pretty late and Emma Roberts was pretty much the first person I saw. And let me tell you, she looked so stunning. I know it’s a somewhat simple look, but the two tone (black and white) Armani Prive dress looked so perfect on her. She looked like she stepped out of an old classic Hollywood film, especially with her hair and makeup. I must also note that she worked with Red Carpet Green Dress again, wearing a sustainable dress! I think it’s safe to say she was my favorite look of the night.

Emma Stone – I will always love Emma Stone. She may be this Hollywood A-lister, but she just seems to down to earth and is definitely a loveable dork. But enough of me acting like a fangirl. She yet again looked like a classic Hollywood actress in this gold Givenchy number. This dress looked like it was inspired by 1920s flappers, with the tiered fringe. She pulled it off and wore it confidently!
