During the Oscars, designer gowns and Hollywood’s best dressed divas are usually the topic of discussion. As soon as we view the Oscars we think there’s no way each “best dressed” starlit can out do herself the next year, but they always do. Trends are always followed, some are even introduced and certain Hollywood actresses seem to try to out do the other. Designers are making the most beautiful dresses season after season and stylists know exactly what their clients need for the red carpet event. If you’re an avid follower of this memorable evening, then you know what I’m talking about. Below are a few of the top trends at the Oscar’s this year, and some of my personal favorite. Leave a comment below and let me know which one of these is your favorite!

Starlets on the red carpet always go the extra mile to look feminine and beautiful and when they wear lace and floral appliques, feminine and beautiful is easy to achieve. Here Amanda Seyfried is wearing an Alexander McQueen halter gown.

Sequins is a popular choice and a common one at that. Adele’s black-on-black Jenny Packham dress shimmers and sparkles in beautiful sequins.

Naomi’s Armani Privé gown was one of my absolute favorites on the red carpet. The cut out neckline is unique and she wore it well!
This year Navy is a popular color among Hollywood stars on the red carpet and off. Navy is slimming and it looks good on any skin tone. Jennifer Hudson wore blue from head to toe. The dress is by Roberto Cavalli but the red carpet confidence belongs to Jennifer. I’m really enjoying the long sleeves this year aren’t you?

There’s no red carpet drama unless there’s a few dramatic skirts being worn and if you know me, you know I love dramatic fashion! Shown above, Jennifer Lawrence is wearing a larger than life gown. But nothing is larger than Jennifer these days. The only problem with this gown is she had a hard time walking in it and the poor lady sitting next to Jennifer during the Oscars, had to wear it like a comforter because the skirt was so large. But for me, I love the drama and I love this dress in photos! Be still my heart!

There’s just something about a crisp white dress shirt, a white summer dress and the perfect white evening gown. White is a color you simply cannot deny. Look how crisp and clean Charlize Theron looks here on the red carpet at the Oscars. Simply marvelous. It’s so marvelous, I almost didn’t even notice the hair change.
