While millions of eyes across the world were glued to their screens for the Academy Awards ceremony, for me the red carpet has most of the excitement.
There is something so enjoyable about sitting back and casting judgement on these A-list celebs and their choice of attire.
This year’s red carpet did not disappoint, with the grand finale for the awards season proving anything goes in Hollywood.
From plunging necklines to bold hues, these celebs brought just the right amount of glitz and glamour.
Fashion commentators across the world declared Nicole Kidman the best dressed, and I admit her cobalt blue Armani Prive dress stole the show.
It featured beautiful shaping with a structured bodice, and just enough of a slit to show some leg, but not reveal more than the eye needs to see.
It seemed cobalt was the colour of the season with Jennifer Garner also receiving the memo, wearing a one-shouldered gown in this bold hue.
For me other standouts included Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lawrence and Lupita Nyong’o, who all channelled their inner Oscar wearing gowns dripping in gold sequins.
The Aussie actresses also stepped up their style game, with Margot Robbie and Abbie Cornish rounding out my top five best dressed.
While Robbie could do no wrong in her white off shoulder Chanel number, Cornish looked regal in a nude, cold-shoulder gown covered in beads.
And to finish off we cannot forget the men, with dapper suits of different fabrics and colours standing out among the crowd.
While velvet can be a risky choice, Armie Hammer somehow managed to pull off a deep burgundy, all-velvet number.
Miguel also followed the trend, donning a black velvet coat over a dark grey polka-dot tuxedo.
Other male standouts for me included Ansel Elgor, Sam Rockwell and Lakeith Stanfield, while Jordan Peele looked classic in a white tuxedo jacket.
