The Oscars consistently feature the best and brightest in the film industry. Originating back in the roaring ‘20s, this glamorous celebration got its humble beginnings in the heart of Hollywood, California – with only 270 guests at the first ceremony. Flash forward to 2017, the 90th annual Oscar Awards featured thousands of in-house guests and more than 39 million viewers on television.
Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, the ceremony kicked off with some of the biggest names in modern arts and entertainment. Meanwhile, winners and nominees assembled to flaunt their impeccable style and sophistication in front of flashing cameras and clamoring fans. In the crowd were hundreds of fashionable luminaries dressed to impress, with the following unanimously voted as the best dressed among them.

Creating a whirlwind by channeling classic Hollywood glam Alison Williams turned heads in her definitive nude gown by Armani Prive. With glitzy yet couture accessories paired with her side-parted, deep-wave hairdo, her luxe look was devilishly distinguishable and befitting of new Oscar royalty.
“Black Panther” star, Chadwick Boseman, made a commanding entrance at this year’s Oscars in his all-black ensemble that was rounded off with a sick embroidered jacked by Abercrombie & Fitch. Setting the style standard high, his flawless style was assembled with sleek yet powerful jewelry and the dashing smile of a newly crowned Hollywood king.
Until this year’s Oscars, Gal Gadot was best-known for her super-suit-sporting performance in “Wonder Woman.” After fans got a gander of her red carpet-ready look, however, she may become more famous for her theatrical fringe skirt by Givenchy and her perfectly paired accessories by Tiffany & Co. A silver-embellished sight for sore eyes, the star’s whimsical tassels shimmered in the limelight as she twirled her way into Dolby Theater.
Winner of the Best Supporting Actress Oscar back in 1962, Rita Moreno, now 86 years young, donned the same black and gold dress for this year’s award ceremony as she did more than half a century ago – a timeless ensemble designed by the late Pitoy Moreno. Its elegant shape and sophisticated use of “obi” fabric kept it (and her) an immediate head-turner even after five and a half decades.

As the only woman nominated for Best Director at the 2018 Oscars, Greta Gerwig apparently channeled Michelle Williams’s iconic 2006 look by wearing a similar gown. Although Williams sported Vera Wang and Gerwig donned Ridarte, the two megastars’ resemblance is both uncanny and inspirational, with plunging necklines, eye-catching embellishments, and a shade of canary yellow not unlike a royal ray of sunshine that juxtaposed the red carpet like a glittering diamond in the rough.

With three wins and 21 nominations, film legend, Meryl Streep, sat in the front row of the Oscars like the silver screen queen she is, wearing a blazing crimson gown by Dior and coordinated haute couture heels by Stuart Weitzman. Even with a pair of glasses, her look featuring an understated clutch by Christian Louboutin epitomized the phrase “lady in red” and proved to all of Hollywood that it’s possible to remain sophisticated and sexy with dozens of appearances under your belt.
Perhaps as a wink to his well-known favor towards comfortable ensembles, Armie Hammer showed up on this year’s Red Carpet draped in a burgundy velvet tux by Giorgio Armani. Fighting an awful cold by looking terribly hot, the “Call Me By Your Name” star sported a matching rose gold cufflink and watch set by Montblanc. Afterwards, his look was equally attention-getting and more like what fans expected: a casual black Adidas tracksuit and sneakers.
There were only gasps of awe when “Annihilation” star and Oscar presenter, Gina Rodriquez, stepped onto the Red Carpet wearing a form-fitting rose gold gown by Zuhair Murad. With a plunging neckline, sleek ponytail, and a whimsical train that flowed from her embellished belt, Rodriguez looked like fashion royalty at this year’s ceremony.
As a Red-Carpet icon, Nicole Kidman didn’t let anyone down at this year’s Oscar awards as she transformed herself into a vision of sexy sapphire and sparkle. Swathed in an extraordinary gown by Armani Prive, over 84 carats of Harry Winston diamonds accessorized her strapless, bow-front ensemble that was finished off with Christian Louboutin sling-backs.
