Hello, abs! Whether a small cutout or a two-piece gown, this year's Oscar looks were all about showing off a little midriff.
Modern princess gowns
Full skirts and floppy bows were feminine and sweet on the red carpet, but sultry details like plunging necklines and cutouts kept these pretty looks from veering too frilly.
Is there anything more glamorous than crisp white feathers on the red carpet? Whether fluffing out a full skirt or enhancing the sleeves on a pantsuit, feathers were the perfect finishing touch for both of these outfits.
If there's one color that screams Oscars, it has to be gold. And these stars proved that there's no wrong way to wear the winning metallic shade.
Make way for the men! These actors were working the red carpet with funky '70s-inspired shapes, cool cummerbunds and drool-worthy diamonds.
There's nothing as classic as a siren red gown for Hollywood's big night, but modern shapes and surprising accessories (hello, Reese's belt!) kept them looking modern.
