The Academy Awards are the most prestigious awards in Hollywood. Every year, Hollywood’s crème de la crème gather in Los Angeles and celebrate each other’s accomplishments. Last night, the talent and the fashion took the Academy Awards to an entirely different level. Let's be honest, most of us watch these awards to see what our favorite stars will be wearing, which is why we decided to make this list.
As a woman, I can’t even begin to imagine the thought process behind each red carpet look that we saw last night. Although some of our usual favorites were a disappointment (Heidi Klum), a lot of actresses brought their A-game, which made it even more fun to watch.
The following ten women completely stole the show last night. It is hard to pick which look was nicest because all of these actresses looked like a million dollars. From whites, to emeralds, there was a stunning variety at this year's Academy Awards and although there were a lot of beautiful dresses, the next ten gowns truly stole the show.
10 Alicia Vikander
Alicia Vikander showed up at the Academy Awards looking like a winner. The winner for best supporting actress for her role in The Danish Girl looked perfect in her Louis Vuitton gown. The 27-year-old sweetish beauty was the belle of the ball last night and many celebrated her well-deserved win. Vikander has a bright future in film ahead of her. Her performance in the film was absolutely incredible; she is a mix of beauty, brains and talent and now she can add fashionista and Academy Award-winner to that list!
9 Cate Blanchett
8 Saoirse Ronan
7 Jennifer Lawrence
6 Brie Larson
Last night was Brie Larson’s night and she looked absolutely perfect for it. The Room star took on a very challenging role for the film and was fairly awarded the Oscar for that performance. The Best Actress winner looked stunning in her blue Gucci gown. The dress is a sexy v-cut neckline with spaghetti straps and an A-line waist, which complimented her body beautifully. She added an intricately beautiful belt which tied in perfectly with her hairpiece that was woven into her hair. Her dress was truly a masterpiece and she looked incredible for her big win.
5 Chrissy Teigen
When it comes to celebrities on the red carpet, John Legend's wife Chrissy Teigen is legendary. The beautifully pregnant star looked absolutely stunning in her Marchesa gown. The nude and burgundy dress looked incredible on Teigen. It is hard to be pregnant on the red carpet, especially at an event like the Academy Awards, but Teigen managed to bring maternity fashion to an entirely new level. Although she is close to popping from the head down, from the neck up she looks better than ever, supporting that gorgeous pregnancy glow. We can’t wait to see what this little princess is going to look like and how Teigen is going to dress her!
4 Charlize Theron
3 Rachel McAdams
2 Margot Robbie
1 Rooney Mara
The thirty-year-old actress made jaws drop around the world last night when she stepped onto the red carpet in that incredible ivory Givenchy gown. The dress, which looks like a work of art, had sheer lace details and incredible cut outs that accentuated her body perfectly. What we loved the most about the gown was the center slit and how it fell in such a delicate way. Although she didn’t win for Best Supporting Actress, she did win as the best dressed star of the night and that has to mean something, right?
