We love watching our favorite films win big at the Oscars. Truly, nothing beats the look on an actor’s face when they realize they’re getting lucky with a little gold man. But sometimes, the real prize of the Academy Awards is spotting all the stunning dresses. From the red carpet to the living room, these Oscars dresses are inspiring winning design in our spaces.
Emma Stone always stuns on the red carpet, but at the 2015 ceremony, this beaded beauty gave us visions of a room mixed with classic Hollywood Regency style and flattering modern decor. Yellow-gold hues and a glittering tear drop chandelier are musts for completing this look at home.
Lupita Nyong’o had a Cinderella moment in this plunging, pale blue Prada gown, which she wore while accepting her award for Best Supporting Actress in 12 Years A Slave. We hope she took this flowy princess look to a relaxing coastal enclave to celebrate.
Although there’s nothing casual about Leslie Mann’s Oscar look this year, her poppy-colored gown has a bit of a relaxed style to it. Big, billowy folds of fabric appear semi-wrinkled and a simple bow sits center. A laidback living room with pops of color and natural, neutral furnishings seems best suited for this look.
Hailee Steinfeld stunned in her glowing gown spotted with shiny, pastel flowers as she presented at this year’s Academy Awards. An equally romantic room complete with pastel pinks, rose gold, and a metallic marble wallpaper matches this stunning look.
Gwenyth Paltrow’s elegant all-white Oscars look was both modern and classic at the same time, just like an Eames chair. With her structured cape and fitted dress, we can imagine this look translating to a minimal space with Scandinavian style to match the tall blonde’s stature.
Rough meets refined in this bright and ethereal dress worn by Janelle Monae at this year’s award ceremony. The large skirt calls for swooping silhouettes while the metallic details require a certain material edge when it comes to translating this stunning style to a room.
This column gown worn by Katherine Heigl left us with a serious case of scarlet fever. The only remedy? A room painted in red-hot hues with scattered heights that mimic the silhouette of her one-shouldered dress.
Michelle Williams went simple and stunning this year with a plunging black neckline and a glittering white skirt. A monochromatic room that’s bright, modern, and has just a hint of shine is the right match for this goddesse’s gleam.
Amy Adams’ hourglass-shaped gown recalls Old Hollywood style in more ways than one. Paired with a tiny gold bag, that small hint of sparkle makes as much of a statement against her ivy-colored dress as gold accents make in luscious, glam space.
Viola Davis sported one of this season’s hottest hues on the red carpet this year. A chic, salmon red works wonders when worn in a sweeping, relaxed shape. But we also love it with more structured pieces in the home.
Michelle Williams’ sunflower yellow gown was met with mixed reviews from style critics. But we think this canary tone is a perfect example of how to wear bright colors both in the home and out in the world.
There was thunderous applause for Mila Kunis’s airy romantic dress choice at the 2011 Oscars ceremony. The lavender lace get-up reminds us that decking your home out in feminine textures and pastel hues is totally acceptable.
