Although Hollywood won big at the Academy Awards, designers were making strides, too. Celebrities stepped into the spotlight dressed to the nines this year, reminding us all why designers still create Resort collections. The Oscars ended award season with a bang, with the best fashion seen this year. Let’s take a look at the best dressed at the 90th Academy Awards.
Uneven hems and off-the-shoulder necklines graced the red carpet this year. Sandra Bullock’s dress featured subtle asymmetry, while Camila Alves’ Vivienne Westwood gown featured a drastically uneven hem. Both Jennifer Garner in Atelier Versace and Laura Dern in Calvin Klein by Appointment went with uneven sleeves, while Zendaya’s Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown had one long sleeve off the shoulder and a bare arm.

Gina Rodriquez’s Zuhair Murad Couture gown featured a lovely train over the skirt, and Mira Sorvino’s Romona Keveza gown featured simple flowers that bloomed all over the dress.

Both Kelly Marie Tran’s Jenny Packham gown and Mirai Nagasu’s Tadashi Shoji gown were a beautiful light blue, and Leslie Bibb’s J. Mendel dress was a simple black chiffon over a beige layer.
