Who Designed Alicia Vikander’s 2016 Oscars Dress? Her Custom Gown Is Breathtaking — PHOTOS

Everyone who watches the Oscars pre-show is always waiting for that moment when a celebrity makes his or her big red carpet fashion statement. I don't know about you, but I literally gasped after I caught sight of Alicia Vikander's 2016 Oscar dress, which is sure to land her on every best dressed list. Not surprisingly, Vikander wore a custom Louis Vuitton gown that has been compared to Belle's dress from Beauty and the Beast . So, it's safe to say that Vikander turned into a princess at the Academy Awards. Bravo, Vuitton!

The Oscar-nominated actress was one of the first to arrive on the red carpet and it was a smart choice on her part. The afternoon sunlight perfectly showed the bright hue of her dress, which Vikander described as a dusty yellow. The silver paillettes adorning her gown also captured every flashbulb, adding a dash of sparkle to her elegantly chic ensemble. The strapless neckline and asymmetric bubble skirt kept her look young and modern, but Vikander's beauty and poise made her look absolutely timeless.
