These celebs showed their mettle with gorgeous metallic ensembles.

Earlier this year, we pointed out the plethora of statuesque gold ensembles that celebs have been favoring on the red carpet for awhile now. We even went so far as to suggest that we could expect the look to resurface at the Oscars. Turns out, we struck gold! Metallics were one of the most outstanding trends at Hollywood’s biggest night of the year.

Jennifer Lawrence generated a lot of buzz with her glistening chainmail dress from Christian Dior’s Pre-Fall 2018 collection. Likewise, all eyes were on Lupita Nyong’o when she stepped out in a glinting Versace creation draped with an elegant, asymmetrical sash. Sandra Bullock also joined the gilded club in a gold-splattered Louis Vuitton halter neck gown.

Expanding on the metallics theme, the 90th Academy Awards also saw its fair share of stunning silver. Gal Gadot in fringe-laden Givenchy Couture and Sally Hawkins in a strong-shouldered Armani design were particular standouts. Whether cast in silver or gold, the aesthetic fit nicely into this Awards Season’s central theme of political empowerment and the celebration of strong women. — jas
