Hollywood celebrities recently came together for the 85th Annual Academy Awards. One of the most anticipated awards shows of the year, the Academy Awards features the hottest movies of the last year, but the real focus is on the red carpet. Judged on hair, shoes, and everything in between, celebs prepare for months in advance before strutting down the aisle lined with eagerly awaiting photographers.
This year’s picks for best dressed include Jessica Chastain in Armani Prive, Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture, Anne Hathaway in Prada, Charlize Theron in Dior Courture, Naomi Watts in Armani Prive, Amanda Seyfried in Alexander McQueen, and Catherine Zeta-Jones in Zuhair Murad. Of course, there’s nothing quite as handsome as a man in a tux. Chris Pine, Hugh Jackman, Jeremy Renner, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Strahan, Channing Tatum, and Eddie Redmayne were among the best dressed male celebs.
Soft tones, including dove grey and blush hues, was a trend of the evening. Watts, Seyfried, Amy Adams, Octavia Spencer, Kerry Washington, and Melissa McCarthy were a few of the stars dressed in pale colors. Dark blues were preferred by Quvenzhane Wallis, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Hudson, Helen Hunt, and Selma Hayek. Kirsten Chenowith, Sandra Bullock, Norah Jones, Zoe Saldana, Adele, and Samantha Barks looked stunning in classic black dresses. Theron, Hathaway, Queen Latifah, and Kirsten Stewart dressed in all white ensembles. Stacy Kiebler, Nicole Kidman, Halle Berry, Renee Zellweger, and Zeta-Jones graced shiny metallic gowns.
Other fashion trends included embellished necklines and backward necklaces.

The best fashion inspiration often comes straight from the red carpet.
