Top 10 from the 2016 Oscars
The red carpet played host to a wide variety of silhouettes, with strapless and one-shouldered looks taking the lead. When it comes to off-the-shoulder looks, Olivia Munn turned heads in a bold orange Stella McCartney gown that hugged her slim frame while Jennifer Garner opted for classic glamour in an assymetrical black gown with a thigh high slit.
As far as strapless looks go, Lady Gaga opted for an unconventional strapless white pantsuit by Brandon Maxwell, Naomi Watts was slender and stunning in a glittering blue gown by Armani Prive, and Alicia Vikander wowed in a buttery yellow princess gown by Louis Vuitton.
Brie Larson, Saoirse Ronan, Julianne Moore, and Margot Robbie all opted for gowns with plunging necklines. Personally, we especially loved Saoirse's glittering green number and Julianne' s black gown straight from the Chanel runway.
Rachel McAdams looked stunning in a silky emerald green gown that looked like it was poured over her skin and Rooney Mara stunned in an unconventional Givenchy gown with a frilled sli and peek-a-boo cutout on the stomach.
