Take a look at the all the red carpet photos from this year’s star-studded Academy Awards 2017

The Oscars 2017 are finally upon us, and all eyes are on the red carpet to see the arrival of Hollywood’s finest in their glittering attire.

Taking place at the Dolby Theatre, Los Angeles, the 89th annual Academy Awards arrivals kicked off with Ruth Nega in a red Valentino gown. Of course, all eyes were on Emma Stone, who didn’t disappoint in a 20s-style fringed Givenchy dress.

She certainly kicked off the gold trend on the red carpet, and she was in good company with Dakota Johnson (Gucci), Jessica Biel (KaufmanFranco), Nicole Kidman (Armani Prive) and Charlize Theron (Dior), all wearing gold dresses also – no doubt a nod to the golden statuette.

White was another big trend, with Michelle Williams (Louis Vuitton), Karlie Kloss (Stella McCartney), Chrissy Teigen (Zuhair Murad) and Felicity Jones (dior) all sporting pale numbers.

Naturally, the little black dress brigade was out in full force, and we have to say both Taraji P Henson (Alberta Feretti) and Brie Larsson (Oscar de la Renta) took the top spot in our eyes – though Kirsten Dunst and Alicia Vikander were very elegant in Dior and Vuitton respectively.

Natalie Portman, who is up for the Best Actress award for her portrayal of Jackie in the eponymous film, was sadly not present due to her pregnancy.

But it wasn’t all about fashion. The red carpet got political, with actresses Ruth Negga, Michelle Williams, Busy Phillips and model Karlie Kloss all wearing the American Civil Liberties Union ribbon.

Of course, you can’t not mention the men. Dev Patel and Jamie Dornan owned the white jacket, while Ryan Gosling looked dapper in Gucci.

Going for gold

From champagne shades to all that glitters, gold was the colour to be wearing on the Oscars red carpet. Nicole Kidman wore a beautifully embellished gown by Armani Prive, while Emma Stone favoured Givenchy Haute Couture (can you spot the Planned Parenthood badge?). Meanwhile Jessica Biel looked like a real life Academy Award in a shimmery golden dress by KaufmanFranco, complete with a Tiffany necklace.

Vintage revival

While it’s common for Hollywood A-listers to have their gowns custom made, sometimes they revive a designer gown from days gone by. Rather similar to Michelle Williams’ dress, Emma Roberts wore a gorgeous two-tone lace vintage number by Armani. On the other hand, Dakota Johnson’s golden vintage Gucci dress was perfectly accompanied by Cartier diamonds.

Disney princesses

Maybe it’s the upcoming release of the live action Beauty and the Beast, or maybe it’s the stars living out a childhood dream, but there was a definite Disney Princess theme on the Oscars red carpet. From Leslie Mann’s stunning ‘Belle of the ball’ gown to Felicity Jones’ nod to Tinkerbell with her fairy-like tulle skirt, there’s no doubt the stars were inspired by Disney royalty.

The classic black dress

It’s true what they say, you really can’t go wrong with a classic black dress and the stars of the Oscars red carpet are the definitive proof. Kristen Dunst, Salma Hayek and Brie Larson weren’t the only celebs who opted for an all black look; Kyler Weber, Busy Philipps and Miranda July all followed suit.

Embellished

It’s well known that the Oscars is an evening of glitz and glamour, and the dresses are no exception. Sequins, glitter and all things sparkly was another big trend on this year’s red carpet, with both Isabelle Huppert and Michelle Williams opting for sparkle-adorned pale pink gowns. However, the award for most embellished outfit has to go to Janelle Monae for her incredible Elie Saab gown – we love.
