Red carpet looks at the 90th Academy Awards

The Academy Awards mark the grand finale of what has been a highly politically-charged awards season thanks to the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements.

Hollywood stars sparkled on the Oscars red carpet on Sunday with plunging necklines and vibrant bursts of colour, throwing off the fashion constraints of the Golden Globes, where women protesting sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry wore sober black.

Instead, the film world’s glitterati chose what made them feel best in a celebration of fashion diversity, whether classic shapes or edgier, flesh-baring looks.

The #Metoo movement against sexual harassment did not appear to be taking away from “having fun with fashion,” said Leslie Price, digital director for Instyle, noting: “The two aren’t mutually exclusive.”

Many of the stars wore “Time’s Up” buttons, in solidarity with victims of the sexual abuse that has roiled the entertainment industry.

“There is diversity everywhere — there is no formula anymore,” said Rickie De Sole, W magazine’s fashion director. “It looks like people are embracing personal style more than just wearing a typical dress. It’s kind of whatever goes.”

Presenter Salma Hayek, wearing a lilac Gucci dress with tiers of sequins and rhinestones worthy of One Thousand and One Arabian Nights, cited the female solidarity that was changing how Hollywood was run.

“Here we are to celebrate the fact that women will not have to struggle as hard together,” said Hayek. “I know that future generations will have it easier.”

From Margot Robbie channelling Grecian glamour in custom Chanel to Viola Davis packing a punch in Barbie doll pink, these were the best-dressed stars at the 90th Academy Awards.
