Alicia Vikander's 2016 Oscars Dress Is High Fashion Glamour In the Best Way Possible

When it comes to high fashion on the Oscars red carpet, there is one actress whose expectations are perhaps a bit higher than others. A true couture superstar, Alicia Vikander's 2016 Oscar dress was a major win in every way possible. Not surprisingly, Vikander wore a custom gown designed by Louis Vuitton the big day. The pale yellow gown was gorgeous with metallic details and a simple, clean silhouette, and it's details perfectly accentuated the Danish Girl star's impeccable taste and natural beauty. Although the look may not be everyone's cup of tea, for those who appreciate couture fashion and Vikander's new stance as fashion's "it" girl, it's simply everything.

Vikander is nominated for best actress in a supporting role for the 2016 Academy Awards, and while whether or not she wins is yet to be determined, a spot on many best dressed lists is pretty much a given now that we've all seen this glorious Vuitton-designed number. Paired with wavy, simple hair and understated (yet gorgeous) makeup, every aspect of the look complements each other perfectly. Whoever styled Vikander undoubtedly had every high fashion designer to choose from for the big night, but this is definitely the right choice — at least in my book.


Like a beautiful modern-day Belle.
