Last night’s 84th Academy Awards brought the 2012 red carpet season to a stunning finish. Have an upcoming special event? Take a cue from the night’s biggest trends.
- Black & White: Classic Hollywood glamour made a comeback this year. Naturally, black and white made a strong showing — together and apart. This JS Collections gown captures the look with an ivory lace bodice and black crepe skirt. We love the modern coverage the lace half sleeves provide and the balance the white-black contrast brings to your figure.
- Feminine Neutrals: Tan, rose, nude, blush — the stars glowed in pale gowns that were both ethereal and fresh. This champagne Tadashi dress celebrates the trend with a beaded sweetheart yoke and figure-friendly ruching.
- Color Pop: While neutral gowns were popular, there was no lack of bold color. The dresses ranged from neon to jewel tone, but had one thing in common: each actress chose a shade that was tailor-made for her complexion. In dark teal, this Adrianna Papell for E! Live from the Red Carpet gown is a stand-out selection that flatters a wide range of skin tones and hair colors. A front slit also touches on one of the night’s hottest looks.
- One-Shoulder Silhouettes: A happy medium between strapless and sleeved, one-shoulder dresses made a modern statement on the red carpet. From BCBMAXAZRIA, the Elyse gown highlights the style with ruching and a feminine flower.
