The most glamorous night of the year saw Hollywood’s finest surpass expectations as they arrived on the red carpet. Amid the neutral tones, which dominated this season, the colour red seemed to be a favourite among A-listers. Here is our take on some of the best and worst dressed at the 87th Academy Awards.
While red was the ‘it’ colour for some of the best dressed, Solange Knowles completely hit the mark with it. She wore wide-legged trousers and a matching Christian Siriano tunic. The dress simply looked like a flood of fabric. Her wavy locks and bold lips, however, saved her from being an absolute wreck on the red carpet.
Ever seen redheads carrying chartreuse so well? The Birdman actor dazzled at the Oscars in a long-sleeved, high-slit Elie Saab sequinned gown. We absolutely loved her elegant hairstyle and bold peach lips. Her matching Christian Louboutin sandals complemented her gown.
The actor was a total head-turner in a ravishing strapless red Givenchy dress. This textured floral motif number has to be her best red-carpet appearance to date. The matching strappy heels added to her elegance. Pike’s sleek up-do and minimal make-up made her look flawless.
#LadyGagaOscars2015 is trending on twitter and here’s why. She sported a custom-made Azzedine Alaia gown in white, one of the popular shades of the night. But those gloves signalled red for the fashion police at The Express Tribune. Even her sleek hair and bold lips did not salvage her day. Although lauded for her tribute to The Sound of Music at the ceremony, her look was a major downer.
