ELLE picks: Best dressed at the 2015 Oscars
They may not have swept the Academy Awards, but they won in the fashion department
Not all dresses are made equal. From a sea of beige, we picked the 10 looks that won the Oscars red carpet.
Like this number from Naomi Watts – the Birdman actor paired an Armani Privé dress, with a Rauwolf clutch, Anna Hu jewellery, and Rupert Sanderson shoes.
Keira Knightley covered her baby bump in a Valentino Couture dress, Chanel jewels, and Valentino Couture shoes.
Jennifer Lopez chose a look that surprised exactly…nobody. The plunging neckline (from Grammy awards, circa 2000) was back and how. Lopez paired her Elie Saab Haute Couture dress with earrings and a ring by Neil Lane, and a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch. Turns out the look was also a hit with Robert Duvall’s wife. The two looked remarkably similar.
Rosamund Pike has been a red carpet-favourite for a while now. So this red, custom waist-cincher by Givenchy must’ve been a no brainer, right?
Scarlett Johansson may not have a Oscar nod (despite Under The Skin), but her look won us over. She wore a custom Atelier Versace, with a Swarovski studded necklace. And everything was great until John Travolta creeped her out by planting a kiss on her cheek out of nowhere. Let’s all take a minute to recover from that.
Emma Stone can do no wrong. It helps to have a lime green custom Elie Saab gown on your side, to match with flaming red hair. And yes, we’ll happily ignore the minor wardrobe malfunction.
Someone on Twitter helpfully pointed out that Marion Cotillard’s dress looked a lot like this sushi emoji. But that didn’t make us love her Dior Couture dress any less. (She teamed it with subtle Chopard jewellery.)
She may not know what’s best for your vagina but she does know how to work the red carpet. Gwyneth Paltrow chose a Ralph & Russo gown and Anna Hu Haute Joaillerie.
Baby? What baby? Zoe Saldana showed off her post-baby body in a blush pink custom Atelier Versace.
Reese Witherspoon didn’t fetch the gold for Wild, but her Tom Ford dress won her plenty of fashion points.
