Oscars 2018: The Night's Most Major Trends
METALLIC & BLACK
Giving the Oscar some competition in the golden glow department were Sandra Bullock (in Louis Vuitton), Lupita Nyong'o (in Atelier Versace), Gal Gadot and Jennifer Lawrence (in Dior).
It was a white night for stars including Laura Dern (in Calvin Klein by Appointment), Mary J. Blige (in Atelier Versace), Margot Robbie (in Chanel Haute Couture) and Jane Fonda.
Some dresses are made for dancing - ballet, that is - like the popular slipper-pink floral ballgowns seen on Elisabeth Moss (in Dior Haute Couture), Gina Rodriguez (in Zuhair Murad Couture), Allison Williams (in Armani Privé), Mira Sorvino (in Romona Keveza) and Abbie Cornish (in Elie Saab).
From Octavia Spencer's Lorraine Schwartz emeralds to Jennifer Garner's Piaget sapphires, Camila Alves' Chopard rubies to Maya Rudolph's Irene Neuwirth turquoise danglers, stars were majorly into bright bling.
Breaking out of the basic black tux box were Armie Hammer (Giorgio Armani Made to Measure), Daniel Kaluuya, Ansel Elgort (wearing Tom Ford) and Darrell Britt-Gibson.
Dyeables go high-fashion, with stars carrying perfect-match handbags to their gowns - just check out Emily Blunt, Helen Mirren (both carrying Judith Leiber), Viola Davis (Roger Vivier), Lupita Nyong'o (Versace), Allison Janney (Roger Vivier) and Octavia Spencer (Tyler Ellis).
Eiza Gonzalez (in Ralph Lauren Collection), Viola Davis (in Michael Kors Collection) and Jennifer Garner (in Atelier Versace) picked can't-miss-'em hues for their red carpet walk.
Instead of a true red, stars including Greta Gerwig, Taraji P. Henson, Salma Hayek and Gal Gadot perked up their pouts with a bold berry color.
Blooming beauties Betty Gabriel (in Tony Ward Couture), Andra Day (in Zac Posen), Paz Vega and Whoopi Goldberg (in Christian Siriano) all found floral prints charming.
Lupita Nyong'o, Andra Day, Tiffany Haddish and Danai Gurira made a statement from their head to their toes.
Red lipstick is a staple on the Oscars red carpet, but 2018 was all about the lipstick red, as seen on Sofia Carson (in Giambattista Valli), Meryl Streep (in Dior Haute Couture), Allison Janney (in custom Reem Acra) and Maya Rudolph.
Kelly Ripa (in Christian Siriano), Emma Stone (in Louis Vuitton), Nicole Kidman (in Armani Privé) and Saoirse Ronan (in Calvin Klein by Appointment) had their OScars looks all wrapped up.
Some years, chandelier earrrings or big cuffs dominate. At this Oscars, it was all about the necklace, as proved by Helen Mirren (in Harry Winston), Gal Gadot (in Tiffany & Co. Blue Book), Rita Moreno and Greta Gerwig (in Tiffany & Co.).
The color of hope made a memorable appearance on Mahershala Ali (in Berluti), Octavia Spencer (in Brandon Maxwell) and Ansel Elgort (wearing Tom Ford).
