Trend Report: Oscars 2017

Lights, camera, awards! The red carpet was flawless last night (even if the show itself had a few mishaps), so we've put together just a few of our favorite looks. As expected, the gowns followed the trends we've been seeing on the runway - beads, metallics, fringe, and of course you can't forget those simple classic solids.

1. Beaded

Intricate, couture beadwork is never really out of style, but it seems like it's been more popular than ever this season. Emma Roberts and Michelle Williams kept things fairly minimalist with just a bit of beadwork on the bodice or skirt, while others took it to the next level. Janelle Monáe totally stunned in her gown.

2. Metallics

Some stars skipped the beads, but held on to the shimmer with metallic brocades, sequins, and laces. Moana star Auli’i Cravalho took to the carpet with a gorgeous geometric gown that seemed to be made with an embroidered organza. Regardless of the textile, it draped beautifully and fit in perfectly at the Academy Awards. Chrissy Teigen's dress was another showstopper, combining an abstract sequin mesh with a lovely white silk.

3. Fringe

There are plenty of ways to incorporate fringe into a look and a few of them showed up on Sunday. Emma stone wore an exquisite flapper-esque gown with layered metallic ombre fringe along the skirt. Halle Berry went the metallic fringe route as well, but kept hers just along the hem of her dress. Octavia Spencer went a route we absolutely love and decided on some feather fringe for her red carpet look.

4. Simple Solids

Classics are classic for a reason, aren't they? Brie Larson brought a wonderful take on the LBD to the show and we can't love it more. The velvet ruffle train was a great touch and had great movement when she walked. Taraji P. Henson was also sporting some velvet, but this time in a plunging bodycon silhouette and deep navy; the result is dazzling. Viola Davis and Ruth Negga were also daring in red gowns, but the risk certainly paid off.
