The Academy Awards are Hollywood’s biggest night, and the red carpet at this ceremony is always a great source of new fashion inspiration. This year’s Oscars were no exception, and we’re bringing you five red carpet trends we’ll be seeing everywhere after this ceremony.

Head-to-Toe Metallics

Many of Hollywood’s biggest stars hit the red carpet wearing head-to-toe metallic looks, including America Ferrera, Anya Taylor-Joy, Zendaya, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, and Lupita Nyong’o.

Mermaid Vibes

Dresses in the shades of blue and seafoam green with mermaid-inspired designs were also a huge hit at the Oscars, thanks to Lupita Nyong’o, Emma Stone, Hailee Steinfeld, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, and Florence Pugh.

Paint it Black

Black is never going out of style, and we’ve seen countless stars hit the Oscars red carpet wearing this timeless color, starting with Margot Robbie, Carey Mulligan, Sandra Hüller, Eva Longoria, and Camila Alves.

Structured Designs

Peplum skirts, shoulder pads, and other structured details were having a moment at the Oscars, and we’ve seen Emma Stone, Ariana Grande, Sandra Hüller, Florence Pugh, and Eva Longoria welcome this trend with open arms.

Barbiecore Moments

Barbie was one of the most popular films of the past year, so it wasn’t a shocker to see many stars hit the red carpet in pink, including Zendaya, Ariana Grande, and America Ferrera.
