Sequins were expected on the red carpet, but in a new twist the stars wore dark sequins in jewel tones such as navy blue, deep purple and hunter green. The stars who wore this trend the best were Sofia Vergara wearing Marchesa, Saoirse Ronan in a Calvin Klein dress and Naomi Watts in Armani. Honorable mentions: Chrissy Teigen and Kevin Hart.
One color stood out on the red carpet: white. Actors and actresses wore the color, including “Quantico” actress Priyanka Chopra in Zuhair Murad, Lady Gaga wearing a Brandon Maxwell pant-dress, and Common in all-white tuxedo. Honorable mention: Olivia Wilde.
Another trend hot on the Oscars red carpet this year was glittering gold. Several stars on the red carpet looked reminiscent of the golden statuettes to be handed out later that evening, including “Suicide Squad” actress Margot Robbie, “Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts and actor Orlando Jones.
