Special occasion calls for a special appearance.

Best Oscar Dresses 2016: The Black Oscar Gowns

There is nothing as appealing and as timeless as black. Maybe that is why the Oscar red carpet was graced by too many black gowns. One of my favorites was Jennifer Lawrence‘s black lace Dior gown. (Psst: Check out my earlier article JLaw’s Best red Carpet Dresses Ever).

Charlotte Riley‘s gown is my favorite one, very delicate work and the poofy skirt.

Best Dressed Celebrities In Red at Oscars 2016

Red is what completes the Oscar extravaganza be it orang-red or classic red. The V-neck mermaid gown by Dior on Charlize Theron is what caught my eyes.

The White Oscar Dresses

The Indian beauty, Priyanka Chopra, was dressed in strapless white sheer lace mermaid gown accessorized with a box clutch. Simply beautiful.

The Colors

Alicia Vikander, winner of the best supporting acctress, wore an asymmetric, strapless lemon yellow Louis Vuitton gown with silver sequins. Love the poofy flair but the thin ankle-strap sandal is what I love even more!

These sequin gowns do complete justice to the serenity of the evening. Daisy Ridley’s gown has a small peplum effect on very delicate embroidery and matched perfectly with the silvery-grey pumps.
