What's the easiest trick to avoid that old red carpet snafu of showing up to an event in the same dress as another attendee? Go custom! That's exactly what stars like Kate Hudson, Sandra Bullock, Naomi Watts, and Kerry Washington did when they hit the Academy Awards last night.
Instead of scouting something from a designer's latest runway collection (which, mind you, once was the ultimate A-list practice), why not go a step further and wear a one-of-a-kind design to a special affair? By pulling a few strings — whether that be with a designer they have an established relationship with or by forging a relatively new and surprisingly chic collaboration — these stars guaranteed there'd be no faux pas when they got in on the growing trend. See the bespoke looks (and who was chic enough to pull them off) from last night's red carpet here!
