Get The Look: The Oscars Edition

The 2024 awards season ends with the most anticipated - the Oscars. This year's 96th Academy Awards brings with it a little bit of drama (Was there a Barbie snub?) and a lot of style, and after seeing Margot Robbie not in her signature pink, we can tell that modern, freshness and classic styles are trending on the red carpet this year. Some notable mentions include Jennifer Lawrence in a classic polka dotted gown - which is oh so Pretty Women coded, and Carrie Mulligan in the chicest of mermaid skirt gowns, so old Hollywood and black tie all in one. 

In saying this, the whole red carpet has produced very timeless Hollywood looks mixed with a spark of contemporary flair. In this edit we break down some of our favourite looks and guide you in being inspired for your next black tie (or red carpeted!) event. 


A Timeless Sequin

Margot Robbie is without her pink but we don't even mind because she looks so very timeless in a classic all black sequin gown. Her simple look is complemented with her natural hair and makeup and a chic singular mixed metal bangle. Simple yet effective, this is the perfect combo for a black tie or formal event - wearing this formula to our next wedding. 



Ultimate Black Tie (With The Gloves!)

Michelle Yeoh graces the 2024 Oscars red carpet in a sparkly gown. The somewhat darker silver toned dress pairs well with her full length black gloves and her black pumps - we call this the ultimate black tie look. He simple updo and chic drop earrings complete the overall elegant look. 


The Classic Contrast 

Greta Lee stuns on the red carpet this year with a contrast we love. A black and white gown is one of the most effective on the red carpet (and we see Jennifer Lawrence sporting this look as well with black and white polka dots). Simple jewellery finishes her look off, and makes it perfect for a black tie dress coded event.
