InStyle Australia Editor & Content Director, Alex Noonan:
"So elegant and yet so glamourous. I love how the delicate beading is balanced out with a the simple addition of discreet pockets in the skirt."
InStyle Australia Art Director, Jo Upfill-Brown:
“Sigourney radiates in an unexpected shade of green. It’s hard to believe she recently turned 70!”
InStyle Australia Features Director, Rachel Sharp:
"Queen? Goddess? Natalie might look like both from a distance in this Dior cape, but up close it’s actually an incredibly chic protest. For the second year running, women were excluded from the best director nominee list, so Nat had their names embroidered in gold down the left front edge to (in her own words) 'recognise the women who were not recognised for their incredible work this year in a subtle way.' Powerful, elegant and on-the-pulse. Plus: hair goals!!!"
InStyle Australia Beauty Editor, Bettina Tyrrell:
"Lucy Boynton is a make-up artist's (and beauty editor’s!) dream. She takes risks with her red carpet beauty looks and it pays off every time. I love the row of pearls in her part, the fashion-forward spider lashes and classic red lip all created using Chanel products. A perfect match for her monochrome Chanel gown. So French, tres chic."
InStyle Australia Fashion News Editor, Natalie Mell:
"This is the kind of gothic romance we’ve come to expect from Mara, and it makes it easy to see why she never sways far from her signature style. The combination of black lace, floor-length ruffles and puff sleeves could skew over the top, but the clever cut-outs on this Alexander McQueen gown give the ornate elements room to breathe. Extra points for the actor’s super sleek hair and make-up choices, which deliver refinement worthy of such a special red-carpet event."
InStyle Australia Fashion Editor, Lucy Wood:
"With a lot of ruffles, colour and volume on the Oscars red carpet this year, I was drawn to the simplicity of Renée Zellweger’s classic Armani Privé gown. The nominee shone in this effortless, one-shouldered number and her paired-back hair and makeup was perfection!"
InStyle Australia Market Editor and Fashion Office Manager, Lulu Custance:
"Sporting new blonde hair and dressed in blue velvet, Oliva Colman has blown me away with her elegant yet still contemporary look. I particularly love the clever panelling and sculptural sleeve detailing pinned down by two giant crystals."
InStyle Australia Junior Digital Content Editor, Elyssa Kostopoulos:
"It’s still early days, but I’m calling it. Florence Pugh is the celebrity breakout fashion star of the year – period. The starlet seamlessly cemented her sartorial status with this incredible teal Louis Vuitton dress, which according to the fashion house took more than 250 hours — equivalent to over 10 days — and six different seamstresses to make. I can’t look away."
InStyle Australia Editorial Coordinator & Junior Writer, Alex Duffy:
"With its almost-blush toile and bodice, Camila Morrone’s Carolina Herrera gown is equal parts elegant and daring. Wearing a reworked wedding dress with sparkling Tiffany & Co and tumbling waves, Camila’s heavenly ensemble showcases her classic beauty as she floats down the red carpet.
