TJC’s favourite Oscar red carpet outfits

Another awards season has ended with a bang, with the 87th Academy Awards being the last celebration. One of the biggest nights of the year brought with it plenty of laughs, tears and speeches; not to mention some stunning fashion.

While most people were on the edge of their seats as Eddie Redmayne picked up the Oscar for Best Actor and Graham Moore gave a truly heart-felt acceptance speech when he won for Best Adapted Screenplay for The Imitation Game, we couldn't keep our eyes of the stunning array of dresses.

In a surprising twist to the night, none of our favourite ensembles were worn by award winners – unless you count Lego Oscar trophies. It definitely seems as though the bystanders stole the show. 

Here are our favourite outfits of the night:

Emma Stone

She may have lost out on the award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Birdman, but Emma Stone won the night in her stunning pale green gown. 

Emma chose to play up her pale skin and red hair in a peridot green dress that perfectly showed off her slim frame. The dress had a floor-length skirt that featured a thigh-high slit on the left side, showing of the Amazing Spider-Man 2 actress' legs with every step. 

To compliment the subtle and high scoop neck style, Emma's gown featured elegant sheer sleeves that were perfectly fitted. 

With the front of her dress covering her up, it made sense to make a statement with the back, which she managed effortlessly. The dress was backless, showing off the 26-year-old's flawless skin and adding a bit more sex appeal to the ensemble.

The dress also held people's eye due to the level of detail it included. It had a stunning textured pattern throughout, created by glittering embellishments that helped Emma to stand out with minimal effort.

All of this was finished off with an elegant pair of peep-toe shoes, old Hollywood style hair and flawless makeup. 

While Patricia Arquette may have won the Oscar, Emma stole the night in this beautiful ensemble.

Margot Robbie

The new 70's trend also got strong representation at the Oscars on Sunday (February 22nd) night, with Margot Robbie showing that this style can be sultry and sexy. The English actress walked the red carpet in a beautifully elegant black dress.

Featuring flowing fabric that perfectly draped her body and the Hollywood must-have extreme cleavage, Margot looked simply stunning. 

To balance out the low, draped neckline, the dress had long sheer sleeves that kept it alluring rather than matronly. The skirt, which was gathered at the waist to add shape and stop the loose fabric swamping Margot's lithe figure, fell to the floor, pooling around her feet absolutely perfectly.

Adding to the on-trend retro vibe of this ensemble, Margot sported a chic, sharp bob, which played up her cheekbones and framed her face. While her eye makeup was subtle, adding a touch of smokiness, it was her lips that made a statement due to the bright crimson shade. 

In terms of jewellery, Margot continued with the 70's feel by selecting a detailed statement necklace, complete with tassel. This added a bit of bling and helped to highlight her decolletage.

We were already in love with the 70's trend, but Margot has managed to make this top of our list for looks we need to wear. 

Lupita Nyong'o

We all love classic pearls, but obviously not as much as Lupita Nyong'o, who wore a dress that featured a completely pearl-embellished bodice. The white gown was perfect for playing up her gorgeous skin tone and stood out perfectly among the nude, black and red dresses that seemed to be so popular on the night.

The halter neck dress, which reportedly contained 6,000 pearls, had a few cheeky details that showed off a bit more skin. It came complete with a plunging neckline and cut out detail on the front, as well as a partially open back. This helped to avoid the pearls looking too heavy on Lupita's small frame.

As well as the beautifully detailed bodice, the dress also had a stunningly-fitted floor-length skirt that showed off Lupita's curves and balanced out the bodice and thick neck.

The 12 Years A Slave actress finished her look off with her trademark short hair, a pair of subtle drop earrings and a deep red lip, playing up her best features and ensuring that the dress did most of the talking.

While there were other fantastic looks on the red carpet on the night, these three are definitely going into the Oscar fashion hall of fame.
