The Academy Awards always draws the most amount of attention from movie-goers, people of the filming industry and fashion enthusiast glued to their seats to catch all the glamorous dresses worn by their favourite movie stars on the red-carpet. We cannot deny the fact that some of the nominated movies are not really our cup of tea for its complexity and the lack of romcom or blockbuster elements that we always go to to the theatre for. We put it all aside for a glimpse of our favourite movie stars in the latest designer dress and breath-taking custom-made pieces.
This year, we are all rooting for Julianne Moore to win and we didn’t lose our bet because she did take home the Best Actress trophy for her performance in ‘Still Alice’. Neil Patrick Harris hosted the ceremony while Lady Gaga provided the most talked about performance of the night with her tribute to Julie Andrews. People suddenly took notice of her singing talent which is quite oblivious since Lady Gaga has always been known for her wacky stage presence and her vocal ability.Either way, it is a really good thing for her since her last album was quite a bit of a struggle.
Gaga aside, let’s have a look at some of the most beautiful fashion creations on the red-carpet. But we are not going to talk trash like E!’s Fashion Police. Emmagem would like to highlight all the unconventional choice of designers by the celebrities walking the red-carpet of The Oscar for 2015. Forget Ellie Saab and Zuhair Murad because we are looking at the likes of Maison Margiella and Alaia which pare very rare on the red-carpet but absolutely loved by fashion fanatics and those who understand how glamour is not necessarily long-trains and sequins.
Julianne Moore in Chanel Haute Couture.
Well okay. Chanel is not exactly a very unusual label to wear on the red-carpet but for Moore deserve more credits for not showing up in huge gown with a sweeping train to accept her Oscar. This dress has a very simple silhouette yet still glamorous with its subtle detailing.
Cate Blanchett in Maison Margiela.
Margiela is almost unheard of on the red-carpet of major awards like The Oscar but this could be the beginning of a new era for the avant-garde label with John Galianno spearheading the team and now last year’s Best Actress wearing its creation.
Gwyneth Paltrow in Ralph Russo.
Paltrow looked stunning in this blush pink toga dress. It used to be a huge trend in the early 2000s. Perhaps the 40-something actress is trying to bring it back in fashion? Let’s just see if it will ever take off.
Nicole Kidman in Louis Vuitton.
A lot of people hated this dress including the so-called fashion experts of Fashion Police. The dress is different from the rest with holographic effect that gives it cool Seventies vibes.
Laura Dern in Alberta Ferretti.
This embellished dress from the Italian fashion house looks almost like the armour worn by Joan of Arc. It is edgy and risqué but could use a little bit of colour perhaps with different clutch or necklace.
Lady Gaga in Azzedine Alaia.
One of the most talked about stars of the night toned down her look by ditching her sea-shell bra for this princess gown. The hair and make-up might have said ‘pop royalty’ but those red gloves screamed ‘Mother Monster’ louder than ever.
Anna Kendrick in Thakoon.
Thakoon is an American-born Thai designer. He has been making waves since the mid 2000s with his girlish designs and use of colours. This salmon halter-neck gown looked divine on Kendrick.
