Oscars 2020: The Red Carpet's Top Trends

11 Feb 2020

The 92nd Academy Awards took place on February 9. Wearing daring and sophisticated looks, Hollywood’s newcomers and brightest stars walked the red carpet at the famous Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. Get inspired by their designer gowns and discover the trends that stood out at this celebrated ceremony.

The Colour of the Night: Pink

Camila Morrone (Mickey and the Bear), Julia Butters (Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood), and Idina Menzel (Frozen) were just a few of the many invitees who opted for this modern, fresh, and feminine colour. In fact, pink will be winning the award for spring’s hottest hue! Feel free to experiment with this colour by testing it out in pastel, cotton candy, and fuchsia tones. 

Paired Up

Surprise! Pink is taking home a second trophy! Many designs, like those worn by Laura Dern (Little Women, Marriage Story), Caitriona Balfe (Outlander), and Gal Gadot (Justice League, Wonder Woman), paired a delicate shade of pale pink with jet black. The result? A contrast that's dramatic as well as sophisticated. To copy this chic colour blocked combo, pair solid-coloured pieces that come in contrasting materials. 

Razzle-Dazzle

Rose gold, silver, champagne, gold… Metallics were stealing the spotlight on Sunday night! Many celebrities like Janelle Monae (Hidden Figures, Moonlight), Scarlett Johansson (Jojo Rabbit, Marriage Story), and Rebel Wilson (Cats, Jojo Rabbit) shone bright in shimmering dresses. This spring, snag the style of these stars by embracing the metallic trend and working sequins, satin, and sparkling stones into your wardrobe.

Full Volume

It was impossible to miss the gorgeous gowns worn by Florence Pugh (Little Women, Midsommar), Saoirse Ronan (Little Women, Mary Queen of Scots), and Kelly Ripa (Live with Kelly and Ryan). All three stars sported voluminous silhouettes that stood out for their striking and structured ruffles. This detail is definitely on-trend for spring and has been worked into overlays that will add a beautiful and bold touch to your looks. 

Giving Recognition

A special mention must be given to Natalie Portman (Lucy in the Sky, Annihilation), who made a feminist statement on the red carpet. Her magnificent cape was embroidered with the names of female directors who, despite their artistic accomplishments, were overlooked this year. These directors included Lorene Scafaria (Hustlers), Lulu Wang (The Farewell), Greta Gerwig (Little Women), Mati Diop (Atlantics), Marielle Heller (A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood), Melina Matsoukas (Queen & Slim), Alma Har'el (Honey Boy), and Céline Sciamma (Portrait of a Lady on Fire). Their absence from the list of all-male Oscar nominees for Best Director sparked a lot reaction in Hollywood.
