The Oscars is known being one of the most glamorous nights of the year, featuring so many of our favorite stylish stars in dresses made to turn heads. It isn’t surprising that these Hollywood stars dressed to impress at this year’s awards show, showcasing floor-length gowns that certainly didn’t disappoint! Have we seen a transformation from an old Hollywood style to the new, more modern and sophisticated Hollywood style?

Naomi Watts sparkled all over the red carpet with a silver, one-shouldered Armani Prive gown. This dress is glitzy from bottom to top but isn’t over-the-top dazzling. What truly stands out about this dress is the distinctive neckline, yielding just enough skin to stay chic. The unusual architectural detailing on one of the shoulders, instantly transforms this dress to perfection, making it to the top of the Oscar fashion list.  

This figure-hugging Louis Vuitton dress didn’t fail to attract attention, worn by actress Reese Witherspoon. The beautiful blue gown cinches at the waist brilliantly, adding subtle yet necessary detail to the style of the dress. It is not what you typically see on the red carpet, but the bold color and elegance of the dress is what truly made this look fashionably recognizable.

Charlize Theron was seen wearing a white, Christian Dior bustier gown, including a flared peplum accent at the waist. The peplum adds the perfect amount of detail without taking away from the sleekness of the dress. You can’t go wrong with this stunning, shoulder-baring strapless because it is simple, yet extremely elegant.
