THE BIGGEST RED CARPET of the 2017 award season featured retro-inspired gowns, American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) ribbons and velvet. Here are our top 10 best-dressed from the 89th annual Academy Awards.
Ruth Negga in Valentino
Nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her work in Loving, Ruth Negga stunned in a full-length custom Valentino lace gown.
Brie Larson in custom Oscar de la Renta
Another Oscar debut, this time for Oscar de la Renta’s team. Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia dressed Larson in a black velvet gown.
Taraji P. Henson in custom Alberta Ferretti
Wow. Just wow. We’re at a loss for words. Henson walked the red carpet in a velvet navy custom Alberta Ferretti gown.
Viola Davis in Armani Privé
The Fences actress walked the red carpet in this season’s hottest color: red. (No pun intended. If you’re following the fall collections in Milan, you’ll know red is everywhere.)
Isabelle Huppert in Armani Privé
The French actress, nominated for her role in Elle dazzled in a long-sleeve pale pink silk chiffon plissé dress.
Emma Stone in Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci
Emma Stone was one of the many who wore a retro-inspired gown at the 89th Annual Academy Awards. Her embroidered lace and tiers of Swarovski crystal fringe was a nice parting gift to Riccardo Tisci, who recently left the French luxury fashion and perfume house.
Michelle Williams in custom Louis Vuitton
Nominated for her role in Manchester by the Sea, Williams stunned in a velvet halter and tulle skirt embroidered with pearls and crystals.
