At last night’s Academy Awards, the stars pulled out all the stops for the most glamorous event of the year. Bold lips, retro-inspired hair and impeccable accessories were the look du jour. While most celebrities played it safe, sartorially speaking, two trends stood out to us. Here’s what we were loving:

Staying away from basic black, stars like Rooney Mara, Gwyneth Paltrow, Milla Jovovich and Octavia Spencer wowed us in white. From avant garde, with Gwyneth’s minimalist cape dress to Rooney’s severe style, these lovely ladies took a chance that paid off. Octavia Spencer did white right with the perfect shapewear underneath her dress, creating a dazzlingly sleek and sexy silhouette.

The other big trend of the evening was metallics. From golden glows to sparkling copper, the evening was full of shimmer and shine. Meryl Streep looked ravishing with a deep décolleté, while Stacy Keibler stunned with a classic column style gone bold with a flower accent at the hip. Perhaps my favorite look of the night was the copper sparkles worn by Ellie Kemper. They were a perfect match with her hair and made her skin simply glow.
What were your favorite looks of the night? And how did you feel about Angelina’s incredibly sexy gown?
