Oscars 2019: The Best Of  Red Carpet Looks That Broke Fashion Stereotypes, And The Internet

The wait is finally over. With the Academy Awards red carpet, or the Oscars if you may, rolled out and ready to witness some iconic dressing, all that was left to do was scroll through some envious power dressing moves. There was an array of gowns, dresses, tuxedos, and everything in between. If you think the experimentative edge was kept at bay, read through our list of the best-dressed celebrities at the Oscars for some iconic fashion moments. Hold on to your seats; this one is all about killer looks. 

Lady Gaga In Alexander McQueen

Go big or go home is Lady Gaga's style mantra and like every other time, she chose to stick to it. Her black Alexander McQueen gown and the matching gloves weren't all that caught our eye; Tiffany released from their vault the renowned Tiffany Diamond, marking its first ever red carpet sighting. Lady Gaga also happens to be one of the only three people to have worn it, next to Audrey Hepburn for Breakfast at Tiffany's publicity pictures and Mrs Sheldon Whitehouse at the Tiffany Ball. 

Irina Shayk In Burberry, Bradley Cooper In Tom Ford

If Lady Gaga nailed her red carpet look, her A Star Is Born co-star wasn't far behind. Bradley Cooper made for a dapper appearance in a classic black tux by Tom Ford, twinning with partner Irina Shayk in Burberry as they made a rare red carpet appearance together. 

Regina King In Oscar De La Renta

Whoever thought white can't make the cut when it comes to gowns needs to take a look at Regina King's Oscar de la Renta number. An off-shoulder torso and sculpted drape along with a thigh-high slit came together to form a chic red carpet look for the actress.  

Emma Stone In Louis Vuitton

The winner of the Best Actress category in Oscars 2017 wasn't going to turn up in just any other outfit, was she? Emma Stone channelled a futuristic look in her sequin-encrusted Louis Vuitton gown, featuring brown and gold accents and winged sleeves. 

Melissa McCarthy In Brandon Maxwell

Superheroesgirls do wear capes, if not at all times. For her red carpet appearance, the Best Actress nominee decided to take the unconventional route and ditch the gown for something more distinct. What's not to love!

Helen Mirren In Schiaparelli

Watch her twirl! Pink may have had its fair share of red carpet iterations, but Helen Mirren still managed to leave us awestruck as she donned a dainty Schiaparelli gown with elegance to spare. 

Gemma Chan In Valentino

Pink, fashion's favourite colour at the moment, seemed to be having a red carpet moment of its own, with Gemma Chan too wearing the colour and presenting Pierpaolo Piccoli's fantastic Valentino vision in her red carpet look. Couture with pockets? We will have some of that, please. 

Serena Williams In Armani

If Serena Williams could win an Oscar, she would probably have. Her sleek Armani look, however, was nothing short of an award-winning appearance. From killing it at the tennis courts to winning the red carpet, is there anything she cannot do? 

Emilia Clarke In Balmain

Emilia Clarke didn't just turn up at the red carpet looking all alluring in a pastel Balmain gown, she also debuted a new haircut that made us want to experiment as well

Ashley Graham In Zac Posen

Ashley Graham has been a champion in promoting body positivity, and with each look that she dons, the model takes it a step further. Wearing Zac Posen for the Oscars red carpet, Graham clearly won us over in the monochrome number. 

Constance Wu In Versace

A sunny Versace tulle gown with Swarovski-embellished V neckline and extensive drape formed Constance Wu's Oscars red carpet look. Nothing like a bright number for an on-point appearance! 

Jason Momoa In Fendi

The men too weren't far behind, wearing distinct outfits that made a statement. Shutting down the myth that men don't wear pink, Jason Momoa paid a tribute to Karl Lagerfeld as he wore a lighter hue of the colour, courtesy Fendi. 

Chadwick Boseman

The Black Panther actor wasn't having it with the gender stereotypes. If it was anything to go by, Chadwick Boseman's Oscars red carpet look was a refreshing break from the classic tux, incorporating drapes and sequins to let us know that sometimes, it's more than just about a suit. 

Jennifer Lopez In Tom Ford

Trust Jennifer Lopez to raise the bar for red carpet dressing. This time, her pick was a metallic Tom Ford gown that instantly brought them disco vibes to the party. 

Billy Porter In Christian Siriano

It can be said without a hint of a doubt that we saved the best for the last. Shattering all conventions and defying gender conforming norms (along with casually breaking the Internet) in a Christian Siriano tuxedo gown, Billy Porter's look was a power-packed fashion move that we will forever be grateful for. Iconic doesn't even begin to summarise it.
