The Oscar Awards has just concluded, but the buzz of the significant awards night has not yet died. From Leonardo di Caprio's first Oscar win to Spotlight getting the award for Best Picture, the Oscars is surely one for the books. There's no denying that some of the most beautiful actresses caught or eye with all of these jaw-dropping events. Like every year, the Oscars don't only end with winners, and it also features best-dressed stars who killed it on the red carpet. Here are some of the ladies with fabulous gowns designed by Dior, Louis Vuitton, and Versace. Platinum and diamonds owned it in the red carpet jewelry department thanks to famous jewelry houses like Harry Winston, Lorraine Schwartz, and Forevermark.
1. Priyanka Chopra
Priyanka Chopra knows her thing when it comes to standing out in red carpet appearances. The Indian beauty wowed the crowd during the awards night when she stepped out on the red carpet wearing a sheer Zuhair Murad creation, emphasizing her enviable figure. The olive beauty looked effortlessly sophisticated with a little ponytail. But what truly made this gorgeous lady stand out was that Priyanka Chopra wore jewelry pieces from Lorraine Schwartz that are worth $8 million. Yes, the 50-carat diamond earrings and the multiple rings she wore can rake in 8 million bucks.
2. Giuliana Rancic
If you were one of those who steps out first in the red carpet, your look should be on point. So far, in her entire career hosting awards season, Giuliana Rancic proves that she can rock whatever outfit. The red carpet reporter got many nods from the crowd with her sexy white crepe gown from George Chakra's Spring collection. As for her jewelry, Rancic opted for an enormous floral-inspired earring that complemented the details of her dress. The eye-catching jewelry all came from Forevermark, Giuliana's favorite fashion line as of the moment.
3. Cate Blanchett
Cate Blanchett looked ethereal on Sunday night's Oscar Awards. A veteran star who is always present in red carpet appearances, the best actress once again stunned the crowd with this fascinating powder blue gown with floral details created by Armani Prive. The decorative details are made more exquisite by the fact that they're made from feather-inspired materials. This look reminds me of sea nymphs and forest fairies. The mermaid gown received a little accessory help from classic jewelry pieces from Tiffany and Co. Although Cate did not bring home the golden statue, she sure was a red carpet winner.
4. Charlize Theron
Fiery in red! Charlize Theron, who is notable for her expensive red carpet taste, cemented her name as one of the stars to look out for on the red carpet. The 40-year-old actress gives younger starlets a run for their money regarding red carpet fashion and style. One of our Oscars best-dressed stars, Theron, stood out among the rest with her red Dior gown. The Mad Max star oozes with sophistication with her $3 million worth of accessories. Oscars 2016's best jewelry pieces, I must say. Harry Winston's 48.8-carat diamond hanging on her neck was enough to make her glimmer.
5. Brie Larson
"Room" actress and Best Actress nominee Brie Larson looked blue-tiful in her red carpet ensemble. The 26-year-old Best Actress frontrunner showed us that intense colors are still a hit in red carpets. A definite member in the Oscars best-dressed list, Brie was all smiles as she sashayed down in the red carpet in this bright blue Gucci number with a crystal-studded silver belt on it. She kept everything on the minimalist side by opting for dangling pearl earrings for her jewelry. Brie Larson did not only win the best actress award that night; she aced the red carpet fashion, too.
6. Saoirse Ronan
The Irish actor was indeed a vision to behold in the Oscars red carpet. Once again, the limelight's focus, thanks to her outstanding performance in the inspiring movie "Brooklyn," all eyes were centered on the 21 years old as she graced the red carpet in a dark green iridescent Calvin Klein number. Sources say that she chose the color green in honor of her country, Ireland. Well, Ireland must be so proud considering that Saoirse is not only the best actress nominee, but she's also a show stopper. Just look at those mismatched earrings from Choppard jewels! They're different, but they sure made her stand out.
7. Jennifer Lawrence
Even though Jennifer Lawrence was one of the last to grace the red carpet, she proved that she was worth waiting when she made every jaw drop with this oh-so-sexy Christian Dior haute couture creation. The dress features a sheer material with lace details in just the right places. That layered necklace, which gave a subtle accent to the look is so chic! No wonder Jen is once again hailed as one of the best-dressed ladies in Oscars; she owned it!
8. Naomi Watts
She was the epitome of perfection during the 88th Academy Awards as she graced the red carpet with a mermaid-inspired dress from Armani. The dress, which was color feathered, was studded with different Swarovski stones that added the luscious sparkles and made her gown look filled with rubies, sapphires, and emeralds. As if the gown isn't sparkly enough, the multi-awarded actress sported a statement diamond-studded Bvlgari necklace. You do shine, girl!
9. Alicia Vikander
All hail, the Belle of the Ball! Alicia Vikander seriously channeled some Belle vibes as she posed for the photographers during the red carpet arrivals in the 88th Academy Awards. I still could not put the finger on what made this dress remind me of the lady from Beauty and the Beast. I can't decide whether it's the bright yellow Vintage couture dress from Louis Vuitton, her charming hairstyle, or her statement dangling earrings. Whichever it is, we can tell that Alicia pulled all the stops for this look. Well, if you're nominated for a best-supporting actress award, what would you do? Exactly.
10. Margot Robbie
Margot Robbie proves she's Oscar-worthy with this all-gold ensemble that got heads turning in the most recent Academy Awards. Known to be the girl who always makes it to the best-dressed list, Robbie was one of the actresses that were very hard to ignore in the red carpet. The blonde bombshell stood out among the rest with her shimmering, splendid, Tom Ford gown. As for her accessories, Margot Robbie shared Giuliana Rancic's love for Forevermark's jewelry. This look is a cross between modern and old Hollywood glam. Way to go, girl!
11. Olivia Wilde
Sexy in a very subtle way. Perhaps these words would perfectly describe Olivia Wilde's ivory pleated gown she showcased during the Oscars awards night. The gorgeous Valentino gown proved that Olivia did indeed took a plunge when she wore this look that featured a deep plunging neckline. The bare skin was put to good use when Wilde accentuated the look with Neil Lane jewelry that included a choker and earrings embellished with diamonds and lots of pearls.
12. Julianne Moore
She was set to announce one of the Oscars' most prominent awards, the best actor accolade, which was so highly anticipated because of two words: Leonardo DiCaprio. Ms. Moore dressed up to the part when she looked regal in her black vintage Chanel number. Just when you thought that the cutout trend was only for the younger style icons, Julianne Moore's gown proves you wrong. When added some geometric detail with the triangular cuts on her dress, it just came out the right amount on them. And speaking of geometric attributes, can we spend a moment praising her circle diamond earrings and flower bracelet jewelry that all came from Chopard jewelers? Can anyone look more perfect?
13. Olivia Munn
For red carpet appearances, Olivia Munn's presence should not be taken for granted. The model-slash-actress knows her fashion strengths, and she puts them on good news. One concrete example was this excellent choice of wardrobe for the Academy Awards. Munn opted for this clean, classy and edgy orange dress that made her look so regal. In case you're wondering why she seems to look like million-dollar bucks, it's all thanks to the $1 million worth of snake bangle she paired with her dress. All her jewelry came from Forevermark.
14. Rachel McAdams
Last but not least, Rachel McAdams' hot outfit for the awards night! We all loved her back when she was with Ryan Gosling, and we love her still up to date. Red carpet after red carpet, this 37-year-old actress continues to make jaws drop. An Oscar nominee for this year, McAdams pulled all the stops to look as ravishing as this, and she wore an intense moss green dress by August Getty Atelier. She also did not put a restraint on her jewelry as she was seen stacking some silver jewelry for the said event. Undeniable, this girl is a head-turner as always.
