Some trends come and go on the Oscars red carpet, but there are two hues stars love that never seem to go out of style: Bold red and crisp, clean white.
Marion Cotillard stunned in a glimmering polka-dot cutout Dior Haute Couture gown and paired the high-fashion design with Chopard diamond earrings and ring. She rounded out her look with a glamorous updo and a pretty pink lip. While Lupita Nyong’o also opted for an all-white ensemble, her custom Calvin Klein Collection number was designed and covered with more than 6,000 individual pearls and paired with a pair of Chopard white gold 18-carat diamond danglers.
Faith Hill wowed in her sparkling J. Mendel design and a chic pixie cut while accompanying husband Tim McGraw for the night. And wrapping up the “women in white” category, Julianne Moore dazzled in a custom-made Chanel number (created for the Still Alice actress by Karl Lagerfeld), which took approximately 927 hours to finalize. (Yes, you read that correctly.)
And on the traffic-stopping end of the style spectrum: Ladies who chose to wow in shades of red for the night. First up (as always) is Giuliana Rancic, in a sheer panel Mireille Dagher dress adorned with intricate flowers. The TV personality teamed her red ensemble with sparkling Forevermark diamonds. Opting for a slightly darker shade of scarlet is Gone Girl star Rosamund Pike, in a textured Givenchy Haute Couture scalloped strapless gown. Our favorite aspect of the actress’s look? Her matching ruby sandals!
Behati Prinsloo chose a deep red beaded Armani Privé number — and, saving the best for last, Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson wore a striking Saint Laurent column design adorned with a single silver strap. The actress added a classic red lip, a simple (yet chic) ponytail and $2.2 million worth of dazzling Forevermark diamonds to complete her Oscars ensemble.
