The Oscars Awards Ceremony is a big night where the best actors and actresses are honored for their on screen work. The red carpet event for big award shows like the Oscars are a big moment in fashion as celebs show off outfits made by top designers. Here are a few of the best looks from the 2017 Oscars.

Janelle Monae has outdone herself again. The queen of eye catching red carpet looks arrived to the Oscars in a heavily embellished Ellie Saab gown. The dress consisted of a sheer bodice with beaded appliques to keep her covered up. The skirt consisted of more beaded embellishments and tulle. For accessories, Monae had a crown accenting her new short bob.

Actress Jessica Biel killed it on the red carpet. Her golden look that had her resembling an Oscar statue was by designer, KaufmanFranco. Biel paired the dress with a matching clutch and shoes, and a bold necklace from Tiffany’s.

Moonlight Actress Naomie Harris went for an all white look in a sequin Calvin Klein dress. Naomie took a risk by going against the norm of wearing floor length dresses to awards ceremonies. The actress added a pop of color to her look with her strappy yellow heels.

Director Ava Duvernay wore this grey lace gown by Ashi Studios to the awards ceremony. Besides the dress radiating elegance, Duvernay wore this dress for political reasons as well. The brand of this dress is from Lebanon, a predominantly Muslim country. Ava Duvernay revealed that her dress selection was a “small act of solidarity” through her Instagram post of her outfit. This was obviously a critique towards President Trump’s Muslim ban and showed Duvernay’s appreciation for the Muslim community.

Taraji has officially redeemed herself from her much less enticing look from the Grammy Awards held earlier this month. The actress went for a classic, old Hollywood look for the Oscars wearing a Navy colored velvet dress by Alberta Ferretti. The dress was off the shoulder and had a high slit, giving this look major sex appeal. Taraji paired the dress with a large diamond necklace, a black clutch, and black strappy heels.

Actress Viola Davis went with a bold look for the Oscar’s. Ms. Davis’ wore a fitted red halter and off the shoulder dress by Armani Privé. Viola Davis’ sleek bob added to the overall elegance and chicness of her outfit. Her dress was paired with a gold bracelet and a bronze clutch.

Halle Berry’s Oscar look was giving off Whitney Houston vibes with her big curly fro. The actress wore a one-shouldered black and nude dress by Versace. The fabric of the dress was embedded with the crystals and the hem had a feathery effect. Her dress was paired with silver bracelets and earrings.

Chrissy Teigen also went with all white for her Oscar’s outfit. The actress and model’s dress was by Zuhair Murad, which featured a high slit and sheer panels across the chest and left arm. Chrissy’s dress featured gold embellishments across the bodice. Teigen paired the dress with gold and nude accessories.

Ruth Negga is another star that went for an all red look for the Oscar’s. This dress by Valentino featured a lace mock neck, sheer paneling, and a long train. Negga paired this dress with a ruby crown a pulled back hair as well as dark red lips. Negga made her look political by wearing a blue ribbon to show her solidarity for ACLU, an organization that greatly opposes President Trump.

Hailee Steinfeld looked stunning in her Oscar gown by Ralph & Russo. The high neck sheer dress had an A-line skirt and featured hand painted flowers with purposeful placement. Steinfeld paired the dress with a Judith Leiber bag and Neil Lane jewels.
