PIX: 2018's most-talked about Oscar looks

Last updated on: March 05, 2018 16:13 IST

Find out why everyone is talking about these outfits.

No awards function is complete without its share of controversies, goof-ups and trends.

Presenting five such looks from the recently concluded Oscars that are trending on social media.  

Saoirse Ronan

Actor Saoirse Ronan hit the red carpet in a Calvin Klein strapless pink silk dress with bow detailing. It was hard to ignore the fact that the gown looked very reminiscent of the Ralph Lauren gown which Gwyneth Paltrow wore to the 1999 Oscars. Critics felt that Saoirse was copying Gwyneth's look at the time she won the Oscars for Shakespeare in Love.

Rita Moreno

Salma Hayek

While we'd have expected Salma Hayek to score brownie points for her look at the Oscars, sadly the actor's gown was trashed and made headlines for being ugly. She was touted as the worst dressed on the red carpet. Ouch!

Meryl Streep

Meryl Streep's scarlet Christian Dior gown with a plunging neckline reminded people of the Fairy Godmother from Shrek. On Twitter, people also conducted a poll to find out who wore it better, the Fairy Godmother or Meryl.

Oscar gowns
