Celebrity Chic: Top 5 Oscars looks

Kendall Siewert, Columnist

Let’s be honest, the thing we were most looking forward to at the Oscars was Ellen DeGeneres hosting and Leonardo DiCaprio finally winning a little gold statue. Although only one of those things actually happened, celebs found another way to make things interesting — with fashion. Seriously, there’s only so many ways to make a jewel-tone strapless dress look fresh. Luckily for us, certain attendees went a totally different route and stunned us all. Here are my top five favorites of the night.

86th Annual Academy Awards

1. Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace

Her white shimmering gown with a faux caplet was an instant classic. The manipulation of the fabric drew all the attention to her waist, and the low neckline added some sex appeal while still being classy. She let the dress shine by keeping her accessories neutral.

2. Lupita Nyong’o in Prada

One of my favorite things about Lupita is that she always looks happy and comfortable in her own skin. Her V-neck pastel blue gown with a defined waist complemented her skin tone perfectly. It was effortless and perfect. Everyone else can stop trying now. Lupita wins.

3. Angelina Jolie in Elie Saab Couture

I absolutely loved Angelina’s long-sleeved sparkler of a dress. The occasional sheer patches around the neckline and the arms broke up all of the glitter. It kind of looked like a starry sky embodied in a dress, which I am more than okay with.

4. Camila Alves in Gabriela Cadena

Camila’s dress is another example of a color choice gone so right. The light pink long-sleeved number was the perfect contrast to her tanned skin. The draping of fabric over her arms left her totally covered up, but I still think she had one of the sexiest dresses on the red carpet.

5. Jenna Dewan-Tatum in Reem Acra

This nude-colored gown looked stunning on Jenna. The short-sleeved, see-through top over a nude bustier led to soft ruffles at the bottom.  Her easy updo followed the romantic vibe.
