The 2015 Oscar red carpet was awash in plunging necklines, custom gowns and striking beauty looks, plus one genuinely royal piece of jewelry. And here at the Hello! Canada offices, one of the things we love most about red-carpet season is sharing our staff picks of the most spectacular Academy Award looks.
Emma Stone, Sienna Miller, Diane Kruger and Lupita Nyong'o were the most-selected names on our Golden Globes lists - but did they steal our sartorial favour at the Oscars, too? From seasoned favourites to nominated newcomers, our selections for the best ensembles of the evening are a mixed bag of old favourites and new additions.
Marion Cotillard set Twitter aflutter with talk of her striking Dior Haute Couture gown - "business in the front, couture party in the back" as our social media manager Jenn says - and there's no denying this staff pick is wholly unique, with its perforated white fabric and drop-waisted back detailing.
Also top of our lists? Rosamund Pike, who food editor Chris gives "the slight edge" over all the other A-listers who donned red. The Gone Girl star hit it out of the park in Givenchy Couture (a Julianne Moore favourite!), perfectly fitted to her slim, post-baby physique.
