In addition to the much needed social media hashtag #OscarsSoWhite calling to everyone’s attention the lack of diversity in art and artist nominees, and notwithstanding the genuine excitement from every living soul when Leonardo DiCaprio received his first Oscar Award, the 88th Academy Awards – 28th February 2016 – was also one to remember for the consistent A-game the women brought to the red carpets (and black carpet).
Winning on every front were the women in white (or ivory). White is such a simple colour and yet so daring in every way. And, quite naturally, Charlize Theron in Dior was in a class of her own with such poise and glam, even in a “safe” red.
Here’s the list of my Best Dressed from the Oscar weekend.
