There are those who say that millennial pink was a trend that died toward the end of 2017. But according to the pink outfits on the 2019 Oscars red carpet, the shade is still very much a favorite. From giant hot pink tulle gowns to magenta column dresses to pale pink suits, the hue was everywhere at this year's most prestigious award ceremony. And even though the shade of pink appeared in many different silhouettes, for a lot of the looks it was paired with a larger-than-life construction.
Take Gemma Chan's massive hot pink, high-neck gown, for example. Or Helen Mirren's pink-and-orange tulle masterpiece — a dress which, as she pointed out on stage, perfectly coordinated with Jason Mamoa's light pink velvet suit (and matching scrunchie — that part is important).
There were pink floral gowns. Some paired with capes, like Maya Rudolph's high-neck floral gown. Others were embroidered with sparkle, like Marie Kondo's column dress (that dress definitely sparked joy — just saying).
There was also Angela Bassett's structural, one-shoulder gown that almost perfectly matched the shade of Chan's ruffle-y dress. If that wasn't your style, there was also Sarah Paulson's hot pink, ultra poofy dress that featured cut-outs and yet another high-neck silhouette. And don't forget Julia Roberts: the surprise guest who rounded out the show in a bright, one shouldered gown.
Let these dresses inspire you to wear a little extra pink this spring.
