Top 2016 Academy Award Red Carpet Looks

Top 2016 Academy Award Red Carpet Looks

You may be getting post-MODA show blues after the tremendous spectacle of glitter, glam, and gorgeous last Friday - but fret not! This year's Academy Awards red carpet showcased an array of looks, from classic to lacey, that sure grabbed our attention! Here I will review my top choices of red carpet outfits for the night's stars (all photos courtesy of Vogue, featured photo via):

1. Kerry Washington

The Scandal star stuns in a Versace dress and Harry Winston jewelry. The slit in the front with the contrast of black and white of the dress compliments her figure well and ensures an Oscar hit!

2. Leonardo Dicaprio

Arguably the most anticipated appearance of the night, the first-time Academy Award winner (FINALLY) dazzles in a Giorgio Armani suit and Christian Louboutin shoes. Congrats Leo (now you really are "king of the world")!

3. Charlize Theron

This Academy Award winner looked elegantly sleek with this red Dior Haute Couture dress and Harry Winston jewelry. This low-cut, eye popping dress with the elongated necklace placed between the cut accentuates her form perfectly.

4. Megalyn E.K.

Actress and girlfriend of host Chris Rock rocks a Prabal Gurung dress, Irene Neuwirth earrings, and Tamara Mellon shoes. Similar to Washington's slit in the front, but the striking white with the see-through layer on the top half allows an element of grace to enter.

5. Pharrell Williams and Helen Lasichanh

This fashion-forward couple rocked a black Lanvin suit and an elegant navy gown. The singer's hit song "Happy" was nominated for Original Song in 2014, and we know that they are clapping along because "happiness is the truth."

6. Rachel McAdams

The Academy Award nominee for Best Supporting Actress sure does stand in the "Spotlight" with a beautiful August Getty Atelier dress. The tasteful shade of emerald matched with the side slit became a huge hit on the red carpet.

7. Priyanka Chopra

The presenter for the 88th Oscars showcased a Zuhair Murad dress and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry with a Rauwolf clutch. The see-through design of the dress that drags across the floor reflects her overpowering presence on the red carpet.

8. Eniko Parrish and Kevin Hart

The soon-to-be-married couple looked extravagant in Dolce and Gabbana. The matching black pieces complimented each other very well and ensures that classic can still be pulled off between these two.
