2012 Oscars Fashion: Classic Black, Chic White and a Mix of Both

February 27, 2012 by Paulene

Black, white and black-and-white dresses are fashion trends that never go out of style, especially if the event is as glamorous as the 84th Annual Academy Awards. Check out which stars opted for black or white… and tell us which dress do you love most…

Gwyneth Paltrow wore a show-stopping white Tom Ford column gown (from the upcoming Autumn/Winter 2012 collection), which featured a floor-length cape. The “Thank You For Sharing” made a bold decision on this dress, as we believe this will be included in both best-dressed and worst-dressed list. She finished off with golden Jimmy Choo “Koko” sandals, Anna Hu jewelry and makeup by Leslie Lopez.

Melanie Griffith and husband Antonio Banderas were one of the golden couples of the night. Griffith chose to match Banderas’ all-black suit, opting for a black one-shoulder Yves Saint Laurent gown.

Rooney Mara was expected to wear either black or white, since she’s been sticking to this minimalist style for months now. But at the Oscars, she went with an off-white Givenchy dress (from the Spring/Summer 2009 haute couture collection) that featured paneled mixed lace design and a train. She matched it with a cream pair of Givenchy nappa leather sandals and a Fred Leighton ring.

Angelina Jolie looked amazing in a black velvet Atelier Versace asymmetric gown with a thigh-high split. She completed her look with a black pair of Salvatore Ferragamo peep-toe shoes, a Jaime Mascaro clutch, Neil Lane jewelry and her glossy red lips.

Milla Jovovich was breathtaking at the 84th Annual Academy Awards, wearing a one-shoulder fully embellishes Elie Saab gown (from the Fall/Winter 2009 haute couture collection), which she paired with heels from the same designer. She accessorized with Jacob & Company diamond jewels, and an Edie Parker “Flavia” clutch.

Sandra Bullock opted for a minimalist look with a black-and-white silk crepe Marchesa gown that featured golden embroidery detail.

So whose classic look did you love the most?
