Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Lawrence & Camila Alves McConaughey at the Oscars After Party

From ‘Old Hollywood’ revival to monochrome mania, these were the best looks from the Oscars’ red carpet

The most significant night in cinema has been and gone for another year, leaving us with plenty of unforgettable fashion moments to mull over. As the biggest stars in the world lined up on the Oscars’ red carpet, it was clear that the style code for the 2024 Academy Awards was old Hollywood elegance with a modern and ever-so-slightly undone edge. Silhouettes were figure-hugging, colours were used to striking effect, hair was sleek and understated, opera gloves were back in a big way, and black-and-white, it seemed, was the colour-combination du jour.

From Emma Stone’s flattering, ice-blue peplum dress by Louis Vuitton, to Emily Blunt’s striking Schiaparelli gown with surreal, floating shoulder straps, to Carey Mulligan’s custom, couture Balenciaga (a recreation of an iconic 1951 design by Cristobal Balenciaga himself), the looks at this year’s Oscars were thoughtful, glamorous, statement-making and bold. These were our favourites.
