“When Anya Taylor Joy walked onto the red carpet, I audibly gasped. Her dress is a remake of my favorite Dior dress of all time: the Venus gown from 1949. The dress is so intricate and also so timeless. It’s simply stunning, and her understated glam and straight hair let the dress truly shine.”

“I was a bit underwhelmed by the red carpet this year, but the Vanity Fair after-party looks were serving. My personal favorite was Giovanna Engelbert wearing Alaïa and Swarovski jewels. If I had to pick a red carpet look, I’d go with Ryan Gosling in Gucci.”

“Crystals. Feathers. Comfort. What more do you need for the perfect party dress? Lupita Nyong’o nailed it with her Armani Privé sequin gown in Nairobi blue.”

“As we previously predicted in our February issue, polka-dots are trending! Both of Jennifer Lawrence’s looks were absolutely stunning while remaining refined and elegant. Her chic street style has been all the rage this year, and I think it was perfectly reflected on the red carpet.”

“My favorite look is Emma Stone’s custom Louis Vuitton, mostly because I’m so glad the peplum is making a comeback. This is just the right amount of drama and classic style for the red carpet. As a seamstress, I appreciate the little details, especially how the boning in her bodice lines up with carefully placed ruffles in the peplum.”

“Emily Blunt arrived at the Academy Awards shining brighter than an Oscar itself! The floating sleeves on her Schiaparelli gown had me wondering if this will be a new trend for the summer. Only time will tell!”

Abigail Phillips, Account executive

“Salma Hayek was just stunning. Dripping in silver, she looked amazing. It was so classic but the molten silver look took it to the next level. 10/10!”

“Timeless, elegant and classy. What is not to love about Carey Mulligan in this Balenciaga mermaid gown? The tailored fit and simple styling complimented her figure and features perfectly. And a matching velvet long-sleeve glove? Obsessed.”

Sadie Fury, Account executive

“It’s got to be Julianne Hough for me! She’s so effortlessly gorgeous and cool. Plus, I will always appreciate a jumpsuit where you don’t have to suck in.”

“My fashion favorite from the Oscars was Cynthia Erivo in an emerald green leather gown by Louis Vuitton. It was sleek, the color was perfect and the ruffle sleeve cape was the perfect accessory! Green is the color of the year and Cynthia rocked it.”
