Last Sunday’s 2016 Academy Awards is the year’s biggest red carpet event, and the stars’ fashion choices did not disappoint.

The carpet saw a wide range of bold colours and dramatic necklines and even more daring choices such as pants and large embedded flowers.

Surprisingly, many people were quick to criticise Brie Larson’s ruffled, royal blue Gucci gown, with some online commentators even comparing it to what a middle-schooler would wear to a valedictorian speech. Yet it is clear with the shimmery belt, romantic detailing and rich, dazzling colour that Brie made a glamorous choice for her victorious night.

Similarly, Alicia Vikander’s Louis Vuitton yellow gown also took a lot of heat online, and countless memes compared her to Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Yet commentators clearly failed to appreciate the exquisite detailing and unique shape of Vikander’s gown, which made this a memorable choice for the new Oscar winner.
