Oscar trends 2018: Variety is the spice of life

When it came to women’s fashion at this year’s Academy Awards, one thing was obvious: Variety is the spice of life.

Indeed, there was no single trend dominating the red carpet (unlike the all-black attire women donned to support the #metoo movement at the Golden Globes). But that doesn’t mean we didn’t spot a lot of ladies who favored a similar style. Check out some of our favorites, and if you’re looking for red-carpet-worthy attire for your next formal affair, stop by Garmany–we guarantee you’ll come out a winner.

Bold colors

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri actress Samara Weaving wore a tangerine frock by Schiaparelli, Viola Davis was thinking pink in her Michael Kors Collection gown and Jennifer Garner chose bold blue by Atelier Versace. Meanwhile, purple reigned for both Ashley Judd (in Badgley Mischka) and Salma Hayek (in Gucci), with the former donning a royal purple gown and the latter choosing a softer lilac. Finally, yellow was the choice of both Baby Driver actress Eiza Gonzalez (in Ralph Lauren Collection) and Greta Gerwig (in Rodarte), a double nominee this year as director and screenwriter of Lady Bird.


Whoopi Goldberg was blooming in Christian Siriano, along with singer Andra Day in Zac Posen, Get Out star Betty Gabriel in Tony Ward Couture and model/actress Paz Vega in Christopher Bu.

Bright red

Allison Janney, the night’s Best Supporting Actress winner for I, Tonya, was red hot in custom Reem Acra. So was Meryl Streep in Dior Haute Couture, along with Leslie Mann in Zac Posen, singer/starlet Sofia Carson in Giambattista Valli and Maya Rudolph (in a long-sleeve, high-neck caftan).


Nicole Kidman had her look wrapped up with an Armani Privé gown that boasted a bow across the waist. Also flaunting bows: Emma Stone in Louis Vuitton, Saoirse Ronan in Calvin Klein by Appointment and Kelly Ripa in Christian Siriano.


Jennifer Lawrence shined in Dior, as did Lupita Nyong’o (in Atelier Versace), Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot (in Givenchy), Sandra Bullock (in Louis Vuitto) and Zoe Deutch (in Elie Saab).

All white

Best Actress nominee (for I, Tonya) Margot Robbie went white in Chanel Haute Couture, as did Supporting Actress nominee (for Mudbound) Mary J. Blige, who was clad in Atelier Versace. Also donning white: funny lady Tiffany Haddish in Alexander McQueen, Black Panther star Danai Gurira in Gabriela Hearst, Laura Dern in Calvin Klein by Appointment) and last–but never least–Jane Fonda in Balmain.
