Hollywood’s biggest event of the year took place Sunday night, the Oscars! This is the occasion that sets the fashion trends for the rest of the year. Some celebrities chose to wear bold statement dresses, while some stuck with simple elegance. My favorite daring outfit was Jessica Biel’s gold shimmer dress. She was the essence of Hollywood glamour.

Many stars brought looks from the runway to the red carpet. Velvet, sequins and metallic were proven to be back in and better than ever! Taraji Henson from the show Empire, was one of many rocking the velvet look, in a stunning, navy, off the shoulder Alberta Ferretti dress. The velvet trend is sure to carry on for the rest of the season.

Some other head turning dresses included Emma Stone’s and Nicole Kidman’s. Emma Stone wore gold fringe, paired with gold accessories and a deep red lip, while, Nicole Kidman accessorized her look with nude sandals and diamond jewelry, both actresses looked stunning.

This is just to name a few of the looks that popped on Sunday’s red carpet. These fashion statements can be used as inspiration for the rest of the season!
