At 2015 Oscars, '90s Trends Ruled The Red Carpet And It Was Pretty Much Amazing
The fashion and beauty dreams of the '90s are fully alive at the Oscars. From Zendaya Coleman to Gwyneth Paltrow, so many of the red carpet's looks were reminiscent of trends that ruled two decades ago. What does that prove? The return of the '90s is so strong, it's infiltrated not just our street style, but also our awards show fashions. And instead of being boring or trite, it's actually made some of our favorite Oscars outfits even more stylish and bold. Here are 11 '90s-inspired looks from the Academy Awards that'll have you feeling nostalgic for the "Cruse and Kidman" and "Paltrow and Pitt" days. Sigh.
Hill totally borrowed her boyish haircut from Winona Ryder’s pixie cut days.
Speaking of pixie cuts…
Oh, and that bleached blonde hair, tho.
Paltrow was either going for Molly Ringwald in Pretty in Pink or her 1999 Oscars look. Maybe a little bit of both.
1990s’ J.Lo LOVES that 2015 J.Lo is rocking a sleek pony like the good ‘ol days.
Gaga’s gloves are like Dick-Tracy-meets-Carmen-San-Diego. So, basically, ’90s cartoon detective gloves.
Something about the sparkly, yet loose bust of this dress feels like it could’ve come straight off the 1993 Oscars red carpet.
Grace Jones would be SO proud of ScarJo’s hair, right?
The top portion of Saldana’s dress reminds us of Center Stage and while that was from the 2000s, it was closer to the ’90s than it is to 2015. And, well, that’s how this got here.
I’m getting such strong Janet Jackson circa. Poetic Justice vibes. And I’m completely obsessed.
Are you supposed to be Lloyd or Harry? #DumbandDumberThree #1994
Two things you would’ve definitely found in my 1997 wardrobe: embellished headbands and the embroidered floral dresses.
