The 86th Academy Awards delivered on Sunday night. From the red carpet, to Ellen’s selfie-heard-round-the-world and finally the ever inspiring acceptance speeches from Lupita Nyong’o & Matthew McConaughey – we loved it all!

Celebrities remained on trend as they walked the carpet with sparkling metallic dresses, plunging necklines, one-shoulder stunners and Grecian inspired gowns. Lucky for bridesmaids, these styles are just as popular on the wedding aisle as they are on the red carpet. Here are our match ups to give you a little inspiration to show off your inner star.

V-neck + Peplum + Classic Black = Show-stopping. Take a hint from Julia Roberts with this Lela Rose 186 dress.

Lupita Nyong’o floated on a sea of beauty with her aqua chiffon dress with plunging V similar to this Dessy 2908 dress in Spa.

Kerry Washington shows us how a little draping can add a lot of elegance, like this Dessy 2879 dress. Appropriate that the color is “smashing.”

The blush colored dresses were out in full force. We love the one-shoulder goddess style that Penelope Cruz floated around in. Achieve the same look with this Dessy 2905 dress in Rose

And of course, no look is complete without the accessories to top it off. We love the Elizabeth Cole line for stunning earrings.
