It’s that time of year again! Who was best dressed? Who was worst dressed? Who won the big awards? Who fell over for the second year running? (yes we’re looking at you Jennifer Lawrence!) and who rocked their pregnancy style on the red carpet? Ladies, we bring you, this year’s Oscars Red Carpet Fashion Round Up!
There was a good turn out of expectant mamas at the awards this year, all rocking fabulous maternity evening gowns: Kerry Washington (top right) looked demure and elegant in a lavender strapless Jason Wu gown, Olivia Wilde (bottom) cut a truly striking silhouette in an edgy black and white Valentino number with a sexy cutout back, US TV presenter and red carpet fashion commentator Kristin Cavallari (top center) looked decidedly glamorous in a pure white Alexander McQueen gown with gilded capped sleeves, and Mrs Chris Hemsworth, Elsa Pataky (top left) flaunted her fabulous double trouble baby bump (she’s expecting twins in the very near future) in a beautifully beaded teal Elie Saab gown which was pulled in under the bump to highlight her changing figure!
Now here’s a quick round up of our favourite fashion trends at the Oscars this year:
Following on from the fabulous pink coats we’ve been coveting this winter, we’re pleased to see that it looks like the trend for soft shades of pastel pink is set to follow us into the new season. There were several stars looking incredible on the red carpets in pale pink gowns this year.
The ever stylish Penelope Cruz opted for a floaty Grecian gown by Giambattista Valli in delicate rose pink, with a contrasting black band defining her empire line, and feminine sashes to finish the look.

Lady Gaga has been known to make controversial fashion choices (to say the very least), but she looked strikingly statuesque at the Oscars in a figure hugging Versace gown in soft lilac pink. The dramatic art deco design enhanced her enviable feminine curves, giving her that perfect hourglass shape. The dress made a modern and memorable statement without resorting to gimmicks – we love it!

Embellished metallic gowns were a major trend at the Oscars, with everything from full length, fully beaded numbers, jewelled bodices, sequins, sparkles and Swarovski crystals!
The beautiful Emma Watson shimmered in a sparkling two tone Vera Wang gown. A glittering bodice in a modern gun metal knit was perfectly set off by the full length black mermaid tail skirt. The whole ensemble exuded sexy sophistication, proving once again that Emma has left Hogwarts far behind her.
Cate Blanchett had a fantastic night receiving the Oscar for Best Actress for her performance in Blue Jasmine. She ruled the red carpet in a breathtaking Armani gown at the other end of the metallic spectrum in beautiful pale gold. The romantic tulle gown was dripping with dazzling Swarovski crystals and sequins for a dramatic yet ever so feminine effect. She was heard telling Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet: ‘It’s heavy but I love it’.

The strapless sweetheart neckline was another major trend among stars at the Oscars this year. The ultra-feminine shape provides an unbeatable boost to the bust line, and was spotted on several stars as they walked the red carpet.
One of the stars of hit US drama ‘Scandal’, Kerry Washington flattered her growing bump in a strapless lavender Jason Wu gown which draped down over her curves in relaxed silk pleats, with a sexy thigh high split at the side.

Gravity was a big winner this year, and it’s star Sandra Bullock has been unanimously praised for her choice of the classically elegant midnight blue silk McQueen gown. The devastatingly gorgeous gown was perfectly fitted, with swathes of gathered silk falling from one hip to create a flattering fish tail effect: utterly stunning.
