Fashion at the Academy Awards was more classic than experimental this year. Many stars paid tribute to the old Hollywood charm in red (or champagne)-carpet favourite colours of black and white, while some tried to be a little different in oranges, pinks and blues.
Long dresses, sharp suits and Disney princess-esque gowns dominated the evening at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. There were some traditional outfits as well that made a stronger style statement.
