Pretty pastels, white tuxedos and more Oscars red carpet trends

There weren't any high-slit memes or rainbow-infused hues on the Oscars red carpet Sunday night, but Hollywood's greatest still managed to impress us. (And yes, we're alluding to Jennifer Lawrence's adorable fall.) From bold tuxedos to pastel perfect gowns, check out a few of the standout style trends:

Bright white
Let's hear it for the boys: While some of the attendees opted for navy tuxedos, best actor nominee Matthew McConaughey, E! host Ryan Seacrest and best supporting actor winner Jared Leto took a lighter approach to their festive attire.

Ballerina colors danced their way into stylists' hearts, as modeled on Matthew McConaughey's wife Camila Alves, "12 Years a Slave" star Lupita Nyong'o and Jada Pinkett Smith. (These gowns could also easily dress a baby nursery.)
