Red-Carpet Runway: What’s Trending at This Year’s Oscars

The night’s not even close to over yet, but we’re already rounding up some of the biggest fashion trends at the Academy Awards (we couldn’t help it, and really, can you blame us?). Check out a few of our favorites below. 

What's Trending on the Oscars Runway

1. Nontraditional Tuxes
It’s true – gowns always get all the Oscars attention. But so far, this year’s menswear is certainly giving starlets’ dresses a run for their money. From Matthew McConaughey’s and Jared Leto’s crisp white tuxedos to Pharrell Williams’s jacket-and-shorts pairing, 2014 men’s formalwear has been anything but boring.

2. Neutral Gowns
Pastel gowns were a big bet for this year’s red carpet, and while Lupita Nyong’o did go with a gorgeous powdery blue, neutral hues have otherwise been stealing the show. Cate Blanchett opted for a “heavy” nude Armani Privé number, Naomi Watts went with a white Calvin Klein gown, and Charlize Theron wore a curve-hugging black dress.

3. Chic Umbrellas
In the days leading up to the Oscars, the red carpet was so soaked from the nonstop rain in L.A. that it actually had to be squeegeed. Thankfully, the rain seems to be holding off right now, but for those who arrived earlier during the evening drizzle, umbrellas were a must-have accessory.

The 2014 Oscars Red Carpet: And Best-Dressed Presenter Goes To….

The Academy Awards red carpet has officially begun – and while we may have to wait an hour or so before all the night’s biggest stars arrive (Brad and Angie, anyone?), we’re whetting our fashion palate with a rundown of this year’s presenters.

Oscars Presenters

E! queen Giuliana Rancic went with a princess-like, embellished Paolo Sebastian gown, to-die-for Sergio Rossi shoes, and a glitzy Judith Leiber clutch, while Fashion Police correspondent Kelly Osbourne opted for a sleek Badgley Mischka gown with a sheer embellished overlay. Kelly, however, had to do a quick emergency swap and change into her pre-show black dress, as she couldn’t get up the stairs in her Badgley Mischka number.

So, which presenter nailed it? Kelly, Giuliana – or was it Ryan in his surprising-but-striking white tux? You tell us. Tweet us at @ruelala with #Oscars now.
