The Oscar Looks You Can Totally Rock to the Next Wedding You’re Attending
Shop The Story
The Oscars is Hollywood’s biggest night. It’s also our biggest night to get totally inspired by the stars’ red carpet looks for what to wear to upcoming weddings. At this year’s Academy Awards, leading ladies like Idina Menzel, Sandra Oh,Renée Zellweger and Penélope Cruz brought it. There were bold colors — thank you Mindy Kaling — and never-before-seen style elements, courtesy of stars like Janelle Monáe, who donned a dress with a hoodie. Once we picked our jaws up off the floor, we used our favorite Oscars gowns as a jumping off point for ideas for dresses that will wow at the upcoming wedding you’re attending.
Read on for the best copycat styles of stars’ Oscars looks that had you saying “omg” at home on your sofa. Then get ready to wow just like Scarlett, Rebel and more when you hit the next nuptials on your social calendar.
How to Pull Off an Oscars Copycat Look
You don’t need to wear a designer gown with a hoodie or a dress with giant ruffled sleeves to dress like a star. Instead, think about what specific details you liked most about a look. For instance, the marigold hue of Mindy Kaling’s dress was to die for. So, we found a dress in a similar shade. Ditto Margot Robbie’s Oscars gown with detachable sleeves; maybe it was the silhouette of the gown that most tickled your fancy. Once you decide on a dress, it’s time to zero in on how each star pulled together her look. Get inspired by the hair and makeup choices. Finally, dial up your confidence and arrive like a Hollywood actress at the event.
Oscars-Inspired Shopping Considerations
Peruse Oscars-inspired gowns for between $80 and $600 with plenty of price points in-between.
This year’s Oscars were a rainbow of black gowns, metallics, and bold hues like yellow, teal and fuchsia. We even saw white being worn by stars like Renée and Idina. But stay away from white or cream at a wedding unless you’re the one saying “I do.”
One word: Daring. If you want to copy your fav stars’ Academy Awards dresses, don’t be afraid to take risks. Keep scrolling for gowns with plunging necklines, head-turning tiered skirts, liquid-like fabrics, modern silhouettes (one sleeve!), and so much more.
