Another spectacular Oscars ceremony is behind us, and it was certainly one for the books! The red carpet at this year’s Academy Awards was truly top-notch, and it brought some pretty interesting fashion trends and red carpet looks our way.

The eponymous red carpet actually changed the color to champagne for the first time in history, and many stars welcomed the change by wearing gowns in neutral colors. White dresses were all the rage at this year’s Oscars, and the list of stars embracing this trend includes everyone from Michelle Yeoh and Tems to Halle Berry and Mindy Kaling.

This year’s Oscars didn’t lack black dresses, either, but our favorite stars managed to put a twist on this trend. Jessica Chastain and Nicole Kidman added some silver to the mix, while Cate Blanchett and Janelle Monae opted for vibrant shades of blue and orange.

The sea of ruffles and tulle overtook the champagne carpet. Florence Pugh’s gown almost matched the carpet, while Cara Delevingne, Angela Bassett, and Fan Bing Bin put their own spin on this trend.

This year’s Academy Awards also marked the rise of exposed corsets, and we’re expecting to see more of them after Lady Gaga, Mindy Kaling, Halle Bailey, and Zoe Saldana put them on the map.
