Trending at the Oscars

We all know about the trickle-down effect: designers put things in their runway shows, which then get worn by celebrities, bloggers, and influencers, and then turned into more affordable, accessible versions for us plebs.

Ruby Red

Tracee Ellis Ross, Ruth Negga, Alessandra Ambrosio, Karlie Kloss, Ciara

From the gorgeous gowns to Ruth Negga’s literal ruby tiara, this deeper, bluer shade of red was all over the red carpet.

Velvet

Ciara, Taraji P. Henson, Brie Larson

I predicted this fabric’s meteoric rise last summer, and I’m very happy that it’s sticking around.

Pastels

Kate Bosworth, Jessica Alba

I’ve always found pastels to be so soothing and dreamy.  Spring feels right around the corner thanks to these celebs’ looks!

Fringe

Emma Stone, Olivia Culpo

These looks were pure class, not too spangly or loud.

Feathers

Emily Ratajkowski, Octavia Spencer, Lily Collins

Surprisingly, the feathered gowns I saw on the red carpet were chic, not fluffy.

Belts

Lily Collins, Elizabeth Banks, Minnie Driver

A more casual accessory made a frequent appearance at the Vanity Fair after-party.

Metallic Shimmer

Isabelle Huppert, Felicity Jones, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Nicole Kidman

Always a favorite; I don’t think gold and silver will ever be passé on the red carpet!

Ruffles

Demi Lovato, Rooney Mara, Zuri Hall, Ryan Gosling

Speaking of dreamy, ruffles are going to be huge for the warmer seasons.  Ryan Gosling somehow revived the ruffled tuxedo shirt and made it look damn good.  Get frilly with it!

ACLU Ribbons

Michelle Monaghan, Lin-Manuel Miranda & his mother, Ruth Negga, Busy Philipps

My favorite trend of the night was undoubtedly the blue American Civil Liberties Union ribbons worn by many stars.  Nothing says strong support like risking damaging couture with safety pins!

Which trend was your favorite?  You can donate to the ACLU here – every dollar counts!

Love, Me


*As always, my gratitude to the internet, photographers, publications, and subjects for these beautiful photos!  I do not own any of them.
