Last night’s Academy Awards ceremony seemed to spark intense feelings of anxiousness and anticipation, as we awaited (through the entire show, might I add) the outcome of Leonardo DiCaprio’s Oscar fate. The coveted celebrity fashion choices of the night brought with it similar feelings of anticipation, as we awaited to see which celebs would ignite feelings of awe in our hearts with their always-pleasing sartorial choices.
The results were anything but boring – Lady Gaga surprised us with an unexpected Brandon Maxwell pantsuit that deviated from her personal norm, Alicia Vikander channeled an 18th century Belle (yes, the adored Disney princess) in a custom pale yellow Louis Vuitton gown and topknot, and Cate Blanchett emulated the enchanted forest in a floral pastel Armani Privé gown. While most of us were able to admire through the TV screen some of the most coveted celeb looks, we were unable to check out the just as anticipated ensembles from the hottest after party of the year, presented by Vanity Fair.
A-listers changed out of their princess gowns, and into some more uncovered looks for the event, and did not hold back on flaunting what they’ve got. The LBD proved to be the real winner of the night, with stars like Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lawrence, and Emily Ratajkowski donning the look, while stars like Selena Gomez, Lorde, and Lily Donaldson made a case for shiny embellishments and sparkles.
