43 million people watched the Oscars this year! That is more than have tuned in for 10 years. So since we all know who won what and even who wore who. We wanted to talk the big color trend on the red carpet this year. Textured neutrals definitely won the day with a disproportionately high number of dresses on the carpet this year fitting that category. Here are our favorites.
Lupita Nyong’o wore this cool blue white Prada beauty which manages to look both delicate and substantial. Its a great color to remember for the future when you need something fresh and just a tease away from white. It makes a great contrast to Lady Gaga’s more structured lavender creme Versace.
White came in every hue and pattern at this Oscars, in fact it read like a texture encyclopedia. Portia de Rossi, whose wife Ellen Degeneres hosted the event, wore a lacy Naeem Khan in stark white which paired well with her fair complexion; Naomi Watts in Calvin Klein’s roughen white, Kate Hudson’s Atelier Versace was smooth and shimmering, Kristen Bell choose a not quite ruffeled but ribboned Cavalli, Jessica Biel wore a glittering slivered Chanel, and Jenna Dewan Tatum’s Reem Acra dress took care of feathered and beaded. Just look at all of those ways to use white!
But not all was just white out on display warm cremes and cool greys also graced the scene. Cate Blanchett’s tufted Armani Prive was highlighted with petaly white; Angelina Jolie wore a opalescent grey and expertly draped Elie Saab; Sarah Paulson’s Elie Saab was made of unicromatic buttery lace, and Jennifer Garner’s tiered Oscar de la Renta showed off light grey is all its clean simplicity.
