Who was the best dressed at this year’s Oscars?

Who was the best dressed at this year’s Oscars?

It’s so difficult to pick a “best dressed” from an evening filled with talented women looking fierce on the red carpet, but here goes…

Model Ashley Graham looked nothing short of exquisite in a black Zac Posen fishtail gown that showed off her incredible body and stunning curves beautifully. The simplicity of the gown and traditional nature of the silhouette worked perfectly with Graham’s classic features and Old Hollywood beauty. She looked every inch the “star” last night.

The other standout look for me was Gemma Chan wearing Valentino Haute Couture. This shade of magenta compliments Chan’s complexion beautifully, and the sleeveless cut prevents the petite British actor from becoming overwhelmed by the taffeta-frilled creation. This was a brave choice, which the Crazy Rich Asians star pulled of with aplomb; the pockets undoubtedly helped.

I also liked Charlize Theron’s new look. Her brunette hairstyle shaped into a precise bob looked modern and fresh. I’m always keen on dresses that are sexy in a less obvious way and this backless Dior Haute Couture gown looked ultra-conservative (though very chic) from the front and super-sensuous from the back. The red lip finished the look perfectly.

Finally, I loved Nicholas Hoult’s Dior two-piece (below left). The all-black look which had a jacket with decorative pleats looked cool and contemporary, but still smart enough for the Oscars red carpet. He took a risk and got it just right.
