The Oscars night had many dresses but in my opinion two was the showstoppers of the awards.
Emma Stone has showcased some showstopping gowns over a busy awards season. She didn’t disappoint at the Oscars too.. The red-headed beauty looked every inch the award-winner in a beaded and fringed gold, Swarovski crystal-embroidered dress from Givenchy’s Haute Couture collection.
Styled by Petra Flannery, the actress wore a Givenchy Haute Couture gown, designed by Riccardo Tisci, who departed the French fashion house this month after 12 years. The dress features gold and bronze Swarovski crystals embroidery, and cream-to-bronze dégradé crystal fringes. The look is paired with bronze satin sandals and a bronze metal clutch.
Stone won the award for best actress for her work in La La Land. She was up against fellow nominees Isabelle Huppert (Elle), Ruth Negga (Loving), Natalie Portman (Jackie) and Meryl Streep (Florence Foster Jenkins).
Fun fact: Stone is the first lead actress to win an Oscar in Givenchy since Audrey Hepburn, who wore the luxury label in 1954 when she took home the gold for her role in Roman Holiday.
It was a night to remember for Viola Davis, who took home her Oscar at Sunday’s awards. The star dazzled in a red Armani gown at the ceremony. The 51-year-old actress looked gorgeous and glowing in an Armani Privé vermillion red silk cady gown as she showed off her new haircut.
