When it comes to awards show fashion, we’ve come to accept that Hollywood treats the Oscars more like a very posh senior prom for grown-ups than the spring/summer collections at Paris Fashion Week: so, generally, “likes” for mermaid gowns and gags for the Osman Yousefzada jumpsuits.
But at Sunday night’s 86th annual ceremony at the Dolby Theatre, amid the sea of pretty pastels and blue beauties (with all due respect, I am not referring to you, Ms. Liza Minnelli), there were some risk-takers. Veritable fashion killers like Pharrell, Emma Watson and Charlize Theron came, walked and slayed the red carpet.
The fashion obsessives at MTV News and MTV Style have our favorites — a few of which we’ve shouted out a few again here — but we’re dying to hear who made your best-dressed lists. (Be sure to vote in our poll!)
