Best-Dressed Celebrities

1. Cate Blanchett

This is exactly the look we want from Cate Blanchett. It is regal, elegant, unique, and ethereal. No one does else does fashion quite like this. The color of the Armani Prive dress was beautiful, and so were the appliques. It was a look worthy of a Best Actress nominee.

2. Alicia Vikander

Alicia Vikander has worn a lot of amazing things on the red carpet this awards season, and they’ve all been different looks. She surprised us yet again with this yellow dress, custom-made by Louis Vuitton. She styled it perfectly with the tousled half-up hairstyle. This is a look that is going to bring back the bubble skirt.

3. Brie Larson

attends the 88th Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood & Highland Center on February 28, 2016 in Hollywood, California.

Let’s just talk about that cobalt blue color of this dress. It is stunning on Brie Larson. Everyone is talking about Gucci at the moment and this was a very wise choice. It isn’t as quirky as some of the other Gucci pieces we’ve seen, but it is different enough thanks to the pleated ruffles and statement belt.

4. Saoirse Ronan

attends the 88th Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood & Highland Center on February 28, 2016 in Hollywood, California.

Just take a look at the way Saoirse Ronan’s custom Calvin Klein Collection dress brings out her eyes. The shimmering emerald green fabric was amazing and pairing it with ribbon straps added an interesting touch. It was also fun how she styled it with two different colored earrings.

5. Rooney Mara

attends the 88th Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood & Highland Center on February 28, 2016 in Hollywood, California.

This Givenchy Haute Couture dress is a match made in heaven with Rooney Mara. There is so much work on the dress, yet it also feels very effortless. If anyone is going to make diamond stomach cutouts a thing, it is going to be her.

6. Daisy Ridley

attends the 88th Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood & Highland Center on February 28, 2016 in Hollywood, California.

Daisy Ridley is someone every fashion girl should be paying attention to. She proved that on the Stars Wars red carpet and continued to do so at the Oscars. This Chanel Haute Couture was a brilliant choice for a presenter. It wasn’t too elaborate to steal any attention from the nominees, but it made enough of an impact that we took notice.
