The 2015 Oscars Red Carpet Was A Full-On Display Of Ultimate Glamour

As far as awards shows go, the Oscars red carpet is by far the most glamorous. Sure, the Grammys are a load of fun and the Golden Globes are delightfully eclectic, but its the Academy Awards that inspire celebrities to pull out all the sartorial stops. Once in a while someone goes off the rails with a bird dress, but generally? It's just a whole lot of gorgeousness — and this year was no exception.

From Lupita Nyong'o to Meryl Streep, click through for every single look that went down the red carpet at the 2015 Oscars. 

America Ferrera

America Ferrera floated down the red carpet looking like the prettiest mermaid ever.

Anna Kendrick

Sure, Kendrick’s Thakoon gown is sweet, but she’s worn far more jawdropping ensembles before.

Tegan & Sara

Too. Cool. 

Kelly Osbourne

YES. That lace petticoat effect on this Rita Vinieris dres is to die for.

Giuliana Rancic

Rancic got the carpet off to a red hot start in this lacy number.

Cat Sadler

Sort of obsessed with all the different sorts of sparkle on this gown.

Patricia Arquette

The Boyhood star looked lovely, but I especially appreciated that she said she was too busy working on her charity to get a manicure before the Oscars.

Jamie Chung

Always pro gowns that look like outer space.

Gina Rodriguez

The Jane The Virgin star looked stunning in silk for her first Academy Awards. 

Lorelei Linklater

I don’t care if her dresses are kinda off-beat — Linklater always slays on the carpet.

David Burtka & Neil Patrick Harris

The gray was definitely a risk for NPH, but that’s why we love him.

Dakota Johnson

Unsurprisingly, the star of Fifty Shades looked red hot on the carpet.

Laura Dern

Basically the prettiest version of a suit of armor, amirite?

Margot Robbie

The dress is pretty, but it was Robbie’s new bob that had everyone abuzz.

Carmen Ejogo

This was the first ’90s-inspired slip dress to hit the carpet, and it was amazing.

Marion Coitllard

Marion + Dior = Perfection. Always.

Behati Prinsloo & Adam Levine

Some double Zoolander action from one of the world’s hottest couples.


Honestly, one of my favorite looks of the night.

Felicity Jones

Bigger is always better… at least when it comes to Oscar dresses.

Kelly Ripa

Simple, but divine.

Rosamund Pike

A bit Valentine’s-ish, but still pretty stunning.

Naomi Watts

Not everyone was a fan, but I personally kinda loved all Naomi Watts’ cutouts.

Chrissy Teigen & John Legend

Love, love, LOVE that dark lip on Teigen.

Zoe Saldana

That corset bodice, though.

Sienna Miller

This black Oscar de la Renta dress would have been perfectly pretty without the lacy skirt — which makes it amazing.

Lupita Nyong'o

No words.

Julianne Moore

Though I prefer Moore in brighter shades, this white column gown is still quite lovely.

Melanie Griffith


Cate Blanchett

Blue statement necklaces seem to be quite the mini trend as far as accessories went this year.

Chloe Grace Moretz

Spring came early to the carpet with Moretz’s floral gown.

Reese Witherspoon

Baby blue is a bold choice for the red carpet, but Witherspoon pulls it off.

Rita Ora

Ora’s dress had a neckline I can only describe as “shelf for pizza crumbs.” Kinda into it, though.

Nicole Kidman

The gold is nice, but I’m a bit thrown off by Kidman’s bright red belt.

Gwyneth Paltrow

OK, Gwyn. I see you.

Jennifer Lopez

J.Lo rocking just enough sparkle.

Kerry Washington

Peplum is hard, but if anyone can pull it off, it’s Olivia Pope.

Jessica Chastain

Navy blue with ivory skin? Yes, forever and ever.

Lady Gaga

I’m glad Gaga’s back from her brief departure into jazz land. Those red gloves are dope.

Keira Knightley

More embellishments for Knightley! 

Emma Stone


Meryl Streep

Pant suit queen. 


Speaking of queens…

Solange Knowles

Killing it as per usual, in a pair of bright pants.

Lara Spencer

Ooh. Talk about pretty in pink.
