My day began earlier than usual, courtesy of the 91st Academy Awards, also known as, the Oscars! As I sat on my bed scrolling through Instagram, I found one stunning red carpet look after another flooding my feed.

Our first encounter with a celebrity’s look happens on the red carpet. So, essentially all we see is the finished look, and I don’t know about you but one of the first things that come to my mind is, “I wonder how much it costs?”

Most celebrities wear custom-made gowns, suits or dresses to an event as mammoth as the Academy Awards. Team this kind of customisation with a world renown designer label and you’ve got yourself an amount that you’ll probably have to give up your life savings for (but this cat can easily afford).

But the fashion junkie in me has the will to save up for a red-carpet worthy designer gown, and TBH, these seven looks are making it so difficult for me to pick just one design! Keep scrolling to see a few of my faves from the Oscars red carpet…

1. Jennifer Lopez‘s disco ball-esque Tom Ford gown

2. Lady Gaga‘s Chic Black Alexander McQueen Fit & Flare

3. Amy Adams‘ detailed white Versace

4. Emilia Clarke‘s sparkly Balmain gown

5. Charlize Theron‘s bare-backed Dior

6. Emma Stone‘s sequinned Louis Vuitton with statement shoulders

7. Brie Larson‘s sexy thigh-high slit Celine gown

Bonus Look

While all of these looks were equally stellar, this Oscars red carpet fashion blog wouldn’t be complete without a special mention to Billy Porter! He stepped on to the red carpet and blew us all away with a look that had 2019 written all over it. This Christian Siriano gown was gender non-conforming, chic, statement-making, and oh-so-stylish!

I personally loved Brie Larson’s look so much and would definitely want to spend my savings on a dress like that. What about you? Which look would you spend your cha-ching on? Tell me in the comments below!
