Shifting away from the all-black dress code seen at the Golden Globes and the BAFTAs this year, the red carpet was pale and interesting at the 90th Academy Awards in Los Angeles last night but the female stars made no less of an impact.
While there may not have been a political agenda behind these particular dresses, there was an unofficial colour code; nude. Following tradition, the female attendees wore bright and colourful yet slightly demure dresses for this occasion with many opting for lighter shades of pink, white and gold and all shades in between.
Saoirse Ronan may not have won the award for Best Actress but her blush pink Calvin Klein by Appointment dress will ensure her place on the Oscars best dressed list for years to come. Margot Robbie, too, in off-white Chanel for which she is an ambassador for. Meanwhile, Jennifer Lawrence and Gal Gadot both looked like golden statuettes themselves in shimmering golden numbers.
Although the red carpet erred on the side of tame, as to be expected at the Oscars, the after party brought the glamour with daring looks from Kendall Jenner and Alessandra Ambrosio.
