An extravagant showcase of unique attire walked the red carpet during the annual award ceremony, the Oscars. Located in the heart of Los Angeles, Hollywood for the biggest night of the year.
This year the Oscars took place at the Dolby Theatre where many A-list celebrities were seen wearing alluring gowns and couture dresses in attendance to the luxury event.
Lady Gaga arrives in a full-length black bustier Alexander Mcqueen gown, with exaggerated hips accessorised with long gloves and Tiffany & Co jewellery.
Jennifer Lopez wore a glistening metallic dress by Tom Ford which complimented her curvaceous figure. A high polar neckline and full-length sleeves gave a modest and fashionable look finished with mosaic detailed fabric.
Chadwick Boseman kept his red carpet look minimalistic with a black and silvery tailored suit by Givenchy, completed with a high neck scarf collar which gave his outfit a unique finish.
Angela Bassett arrives in a custom Reem Acra gown, worn in vibrant cerise pink. The off the shoulder, silhouette had a sassy side slit and an oversized pleated bow giving the feminine pink assemble a dramatic look for the evening.
Continuing the pink trend down the red carpet was Gemma Chan, in an opulent sleeveless Valentino couture frock, detailed with minute pleats and a high ruffled collar.
Linda Cardellini turned many heads with a striking ruffled look by Schiaparelli Couture. The gown large with Layers had dramatic tulle ruffles creating a voluminous look, finished with a pastel pink bow.
Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa paid tribute to the legendary Karl Lagerfeld. Jason wore a simple and sweet rose pink velvet tuxedo, accompanied by his partner Lisa Bonet also in a rose pink gown with beaded detailing. Both outfits were designed by the late Karl Lagerfeld before he sadly passed away.
Laura Harrier attended the event in a pastel blue Louis Vuitton gown with sparkly embellishments, a sexy side slit accessorised Bulgaria jewellery and strappy heels.
Amy Adams wore an angelic bustier gown, custom made by Versace. The off the shoulder silhouette illuminated with zigzag sparkly fabric in an off white tone. Overall creating a heavenly look that extenuated Amy's womanly physic.
Rami Malek kept his look sophisticated and sharp with a custom made tuxedo by Saint Laurent.
Laura Dern made an appearance in a sweetheart neckline gown with front ruching details. The Full-length dress, also off the shoulder was a deep maroon-purple giving an elegant and delicate look for the occasion.
Overall the Oscars red carpet looks where both eccentric and inspiring, with a range of celebrities attending in rememberable outfits. Pink tones and ruffles were the strongest trends seen throughout the event, as attendees celebrated each other's achievements within the film industry.
Angelina Jolie turned up at the Oscars in a black velveteen, strapless Atelier Versace dress and a Jaime Mascaro clutch bag, she strolled along the red carpet mesmerising the crowds with this sexy slit to the neckline number, some say it was very similar to Jennifer Aniston's very leggy look at the Golden Globes just a couple of years ago (Valentino couture gown 2010).
We so need to move on from Jennifer -Brangelina comparisons, it's just not fair to keep doing it. Angelina totally stole the show by purposely popping her hip out of the gown. Angelina was gracefully draped in designer Neil Lane's jewellery and some pretty, Salvatore Ferragamo shoes. The gatherings at the top of the corset part of the gown rendered pure elegance. Angelina has an eye for style; she effortlessly oozes sophistication and a refined look at all events.
Michelle Williams was up for the best actress statue at the Oscars this year for her role as Marilyn Munroe. She turned up in a ruched bustline and a 50s peplum skirt. She held a Bottega Veneta blush crocodile knot clutch bag which in Fashion Thirst's opinion clashed somewhat with the colour of the dress; a reddish, coral and orange glow. Michelle was adorned with Forever Mark jewels which gave her a completed look. Michelle went for a coral-pink lip colour. What do you think of her look? Her minimal make-up, trademark pixie and elfin hair style, and understated necklace really proved popular with the fashion paparazzi. But what do YOU think folks?
