For a black-tie affair, it was the color white that dominated the red carpet fashion at the Academy Awards on Sunday night with a range of stars from Gwyneth Paltrow to Jennifer Lopez choosing the soft look.
But it wasn't the only choice of the A-list actresses. Some chose bold colors of red and gold. Fashion trendsetter Angelina Jolie looked every bit the movie star in black, and jewellery choices were minimal with one or two major pieces.
Icy tones in white, silver, ivory - they ruled the red carpet, designer Marc Bouwer told Reuters. Almost everybody who looked stunning on the red carpet this year wore white.
That included Paltrow in a Tom Ford column gown with a cape, Lopez's stripped sheer Zuhair Murad, Octavia Spencer in sparkling Tadashi Shoji, Milla Jovovich in sleek Elie Saab couture, Shailene Woodley in a long sleeved couture vintage Valentino, and most surprisingly, Rooney Mara - who spent most of awards season wearing black - in a snow white Givenchy gown.
Even Sandra Bullock was part of the trend in a color block dress with white on top and black on the bottom.
White is a celebrity favorite this season, style expert Sam Saboura said. It's very striking and looks great on camera.
Ironically, Jolie -- who started the white trend at the Golden Globes last month when she wore a pale satin Atelier Versace with a slash of red -- did a 180-degree turn and showed up at the Oscars in a black Atelier Versace gown.
Angelina Jolie is a trend-setter and the queen of the red carpet, said Bouwer. It's no surprise everyone else followed her lead. It's also no surprise she decided to do the opposite and go back to the color she wore to the Oscars several years back.
