Talented, beautiful, AND well-dressed! It’s that time of the year again to be stunned by the magnificence of the Oscar nominees. From elegant white to emerald green; from umbrellas (?!) to a Jesus look-a-like(?!), the Oscars’ staggering fashion never fails to disappoint the eyes.
Here are 9 standouts of Oscar 2015 from Blueprint to you:
Reese Witherspoon: B&W
Nothing screams simplicity like black and white. Reese Witherspoon elevates a rather mundane combination of colors to another level of sophistication with her dress designed by Tom Ford. Her goddess-like figure accentuates the already-established elegance of the black and white.
Lupita Nyong’o: No Need for Words
She aces every time. Following last year’s beautiful baby-blue dress, Lupita Nyong’o strikes again – this time in pearl white, literally. Graduating from the youthful dresses of the past, Nyong’o oozes gracefulness and maturity through her sleek, embroidered pearl dress. With the subtle, cool-toned accents on her ears and fingers, Nyong’o truly brought a 10/10 to the carpet again.
Emma Stone: The Golden Beauty
True beauty resonates from a beautiful heart, and we might as well put “Emma Stone” as the definition of beauty. Emma Stone blinds the eyes of the audience once again with her ____ in her daring, delicate golden dress. With the slight tan she has acquired over the years, gold was the perfect option for Stone.
Sophie Hunter: Simply Red
Recently, Cumberbatch followers had to renounce their beloved British darling to Ms. Sophie Hunter (soon to be Mrs. Sophie Cumberbatch). Despite the lament, we have to admit that she looks astonishing in this all-red dress. Hunter’s number is perhaps the most basic of all the nominees, a simple red cloth with a side slit, but she was able to upgrade it to an Oscar-worthy (and Cumberbatch-worthy) apparel.
Jared Leto: (A Little Too) Creative
Jared Leto, whipping his astoundingly long and luscious ombré hair, enters the carpet in a baby violet suit with… with a contrastingly black umbrella. Leto’s joviality, creativity, and his Jesus-esq appearance captivated Blueprint’s attention.
Adrien Brody: Charming All Over
Amid the all-black suits explosion of Oscars 2015, Adrien Brody deserves some credit with his white and black suit. His ever-so-attractive eyebrows and mustache deserve some credit too.
Eddie Redmayne: Sweetie Eddie
Perhaps it’s the height? Or the sweetheart smile? Whatever it is, Eddie Redmayne brought his crisp and proper British essence to brighten up the red carpet. Although not creative or unique, Redmayne’s suit unquestionably enhances the aesthetics of this year’s Oscars. His down-to-earth speech was heart-warming, too – just like him and his outfit.
