This season, Oscar's ladies aren't afraid of bold color — or a little latex. The show opened with Karlie Kloss in a red latex tank and slit pencil skirt, setting the tone for a show that gave Oscar's brand of ladylike a decidedly younger voice and a playfulness (most obviously via the models' color-streaked bouffants) throughout. Between the opener and a lovely, embellished strapless gown (which Karlie Kloss also wore) to close out the show, we were treated to a menagerie of candy-colored day dressing, finished with girlie takes on texture — think lace, ruffles, and scalloped edges, before the collection gave way to a few show-stoppers and shockers (like Cara Delevingne in a hot-pink, ostrich-feather-trimmed peplum bustier-and-short set) and culminated in Oscar's parade of evening dresses. While '60s silhouettes were present throughout — skirt suiting, fit-and-flare silhouettes, floral applique crop-tops, and high-waist shorts — it was expressed most clearly in this lineup of pretty party dresses: floaty, feminine confections finished in tulle and organza that have since inspired our dreams of the most glamorous, retro-feeling prom dresses.

  • Trends: Leather, metallics, lace, fit-and-flare dresses, slits, stripes, brights, and peplum.
  • Colors: A crop of brights — hot pink, yellow, baby blue, ivory, black, and red.
  • Key Piece: From this all-star lineup? It's nearly impossible to pick just one.
  • Accessories: Chunky jeweled necklaces, jewel-drop earrings, brooches, ladylike pumps, candy-colored ankle-strap heels, and laser-cut booties.
  • Who Should Wear It: Here's hoping Diane Kruger opts for the striped, strapless ball gown on the red carpet; we could see Emma Stone in the black tiered and textured mini.
