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.

Best-Dressed Nomination: A Look at Zac Posen’s Pre-Fall 2014 Collection

Sure, we’re in the midst of holiday madness, but before you know it, awards season will be upon us. Mumblings of Oscar contenders have already begun. Cate Blanchett. Sandra Bullock. Jennifer Lawrence. But what’s even more exciting? The gown predictions.

Personally, my money’s on Zac Posen’s pre-fall collection. Let me rephrase that: I’m praying celebs will choose these pieces.

Done up in rich satin with dramatic old-Hollywood silhouettes and strong sculpted details, his floor-length confections belong on this year’s red carpets. Are you listening to me, JLaw? This will probably be the only time these words come out of my mouth, but leave the Christian Dior at home. At least for one red carpet.
