An expert’s view on the best dressed on the Oscar carpet

From the Louis Vuitton black trousers worn by Emma Stone to the electric pink Michael Kors gown wrapped around Viola Davis, this year’s Oscar runway was a study in contrasts that celebrated individual flair.

Celebrating her first Oscar nod for her performance in “I, Tonya,” best supporting actress nominee Allison Janney made a statement in a scarlet red gown from Reem Acra with a deep V neckline and dramatic flared sleeves.

People Magazine’s Style and Beauty Director, Andrea Lavinthal told Forbes: “You know, I would tell you that my favorite was Allison Janney because I thought she looked so confident, statuesque and gorgeous. Then I saw Margot Robbie in the white Chanel and then I was like ‘That’s my favorite’ and then I saw Jennifer Lawrence in Dior and I was like ‘That’s my favorite’ so clearly I can’t decide. There were a lot of great gorgeous ones but I think whenever anyone takes a risk and wears a bright color, major embellishments, all three combined. I’m there for it. I like it.”

Those on the world’s most-watched runway appeared to throw off the fashion constraints of the Golden Globes, where women protesting the sexual misconduct that has roiled the entertainment industry opted for black gowns.

Instead, the film world’s glitterati chose what made them feel best, whether classic gowns or edgier, flesh-baring looks.

Presenter Salma Hayek wore a lilac gown with tiers of sequins and rhinestones.

Threatened by possible showers, the red carpet instead proceeded under sunny skies, where a host of bold colors in emerald, purple and shocking pink appeared to glow. Nicole Kidman opted for royal blue and Ashley Judd wore a strapless amethyst dress. “Best Director” nominee Greta Gerwig chose orangey-mustard while Meryl Streep wore classic vermillion.

The first Hispanic actress to win an Oscar, Rita Moreno returned to the red carpet on Sunday.
