As the awards season comes to an end, we're reminiscing on our favorite looks from the 2020 Oscars. This year, the women were not afraid to say no to volume, color, and glamour. You shouldn't be either! We've created a red carpet roundup of every day looks inspired by Hollywood's leading ladies that you can incorporate into your own closet.
If you were a fan of Rooney Mara's black lace Alexander McQueen gown, this Monique Lhuillier dress is perfect for you. Instead of a ruffled hem, the Monique Lhuillier option is entirely black lace. And, the peekaboo cutouts aren't as prominent as Mara's, so you're safe to wear this dress to your next formal occasion. To bring some of Mara's edge to the look, style your hair in a high top knot. You can pair the dress with strappy black sandals.
Kristen Wiig made a bold statement at this year's Academy Awards in a red Valentino Couture gown. Even if you don't love the style of the dress, the color is worth noting. For those who want to incorporate a pop of red—without the side ruffles—into their wardrobe, try the Cross Doubleface Coat by Texdata. The double-breasted coat hits at the knees and has versatile use—you can wear it to the office or out for drinks. Its clean lines and soft touch make the look classic and comfortable.
Halter tops are flirty, fun, and fresh. Penelope Cruz showed up to the Oscars in a custom-made silk Chanel gown adorned with a white flower and pearls. Halston makes a crepe halter neck jumpsuit with a georgette overlay that is sure to turn as many heads as Cruz's gown. Like Cruz, you should keep your hair and makeup simple when wearing the Halston jumpsuit. Complete the look with black heels.
Teal was another color that made a splash on this year's red carpet. If you like the vibrancy of Florence Pugh's Louis Vuitton high-low dress, you'll love La Maison Talulah's All My Days Midi Dress. This off the shoulder midi dress features a ruffle frill along the edge and a polka dot print—also on trend this season! There is a removable tie perfect for accentuating your waist. Skip Pugh's matching shoes and opt for a nude sandal.
Shining from head to toe was Brie Larson in a stunning champagne CELINE by Hedi Slimane dress. As one of the evening's best dressed, she truly dazzled. If you love her sparkle but prefer to be a bit more subdued, consider these Jeffery Campbell heels. Wear them with a simple dress and continue to add shine through your jewelry. Cape, optional!
