2016 Oscar Red Carpet Trends

It was clear the moment the Oscar nominees were announced back in January, that this was going to be a polarizing show. The lack of diversity amongst the nominees for the 88th Academy Awards left celebrities divided. As Chris Rock mentioned in his opening monologue, Jada Pinkett Smith decided to boycott the show, while other celebrities such as Stacey Dash, also featured in the opening monologue, were outraged at the boycott.

Purposeful or not, this season’s Oscar trend is as simple as black and white. Literally, the most common colors featured at the Oscars were black and white dresses.

A-list celebrities such as Kate Winslet, Julianne Moore and numerous others looked dashing in black on the red carpet this evening.

Other celebs such as Olivia Wilde, Rooney Mara and even Lady Gaga embraced the other side of the color wheel and dressed in white.

While most celebrities shined in black and white, there where a few that dared to try bold colors.  Unfortunately for Heidi Klum, this risk did not pay off.

So there you have it, a rather monochromatic yet elegant red carpet. Overall, the fashion this evening was phenomenal except for a few low notes (sorry Heidi).
