The Best Dressed at the 2017 Academy Awards


Share This Article:

The Academy Awards, more commonly known as the Oscars, mark the grand finale of award season.

After months of press, premieres and prestigious award shows, the Oscars mark the final chance for the A-listers bring their A-game.

As the show celebrates its 89th birthday, stars flocked to the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, battling it out to receive one of the 24 awards up for grabs.

It's fair to say that La La Land stole the night once again, winning six of the 14 awards it was nominated for - even after being stripped of its wrongly awarded Oscar for Best Picture, which was subsequently awarded to Moonlight.

However, controversy aside, there is another layer to this battleground - the red carpet. No, we’re not talking costume design; we’re talking the couture statements. From politics to party dresses, we run down the best looks of the night.

And so, without further ado, the nominees are…

Kirsten Dunst

Dressed in a subtle high-low hemline, Dunst looked every inch the icon in her custom Dior gown. Despite not being up for any major awards, this look made sure she was not forgotten from the night.

Viola Davis

Davis looked every inch red carpet worthy in her custom Armani Privé silk gown. She matched the flattering off the shoulder / halter neckline with an equally elegant and gracious Best Supporting Actress win.

Nicole Kidman

Dressed too in Armani Privé, Kidman complimented her embellished gown with jewellery to match. Our only wish is that she would have matched her lip colour to the deep pink Harry Winston jewels that hung from her ears.

Karlie Kloss

Although reminiscent of a look worn by Gwyneth Paltrow at the 2012 Academy Awards, Kloss made the white caped gown look her own with a political statement – a small blue ribbon on her hip to support ACLU.

Emma Stone

Stone pays homage to the awards in a golden flapper style dress, as if she were a hybrid of the actual award and the time period in which they first began. Surprisingly, it works. She accessorized the look with a Planned Parenthood pin, showing her support to the organisation.
