The red-carpet run at the 90th Academy Awards is over, leaving fashion experts to summarize the trends while fashionistas dream of dazzling new outfits.
The fashion world is always on alert at this time of year, with millions anticipating the new chic and classic trends in the dresses, jewelry and footwear on show at the Oscars.
The awards never fail to attract the attention of fashionistas and beauty seekers from around the world, while those attending seek to look their best. And this year was no different, with stars hitting the runway draped in an array of designs that will set trends for the coming year's haute couture.
In general, and unlike the year's previous events, where trends were spotted on the spot and outlined, the Oscars celebrated individual styles and contrasts, devoid of any constraints. The somber black favoured by most of the women in the Golden Globes was shed in favor of a wide array of colours and patterns.
Stars like Nicole Kidman, Meryl Streep, Sofia Carson and Jennifer Garner donned two of the most prevalent colors in the evening: red and royal blue.
Others opted for white or light-coloured sequined numbers, like Janet Mock and Allison Williams.
Powdery shades were present as well, as sported by Emily blunt and Saorise Ronan.
Andra Day and Paz Vega went for flowery patterns, while others sashayed in classic shades of gold and silver, including Lupita, Gal Gadot and Sandra Bullock.
There were plenty of deep-plunging necklines on display too, while simple cuts were favored by most. There were a few halter necks on the red carpet, but they not so many as last year.
Lebanese designers like Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad did not disappoint with their designs on Sunday, showing off their two main staples: heavy elegant embellishments, and shades of gold and champagne. Their creations were chosen by Zoe Deutch, Abbie Cornish and Jenna Dewan.
