The much-awaited awards night for the film industry has just concluded. The 92nd Academy Awards was a star-studded night—celebrating the past year’s amazing films, filmmakers and actors.
Just like every awards show, there’s going to be a red carpet event before it. And while we’re all still amazed at how Natalie Portman clapped back at the Oscars’ female director snub, it’s hard not to notice how there’s a trend comeback.
According to the Wall Street Journal, peplums have been a recurring trend which started around mid-90s. The last time it was a trend was in 2011, thanks to Jil Sander’s influential Spring 2011 women’s collection.
Here are some of the peplum outfits from this year’s Oscars red carpet:
Saoirse Ronan caught everyone’s attention as she graced the red carpet in a black, cream and lavender Gucci peplum gown—with a plunging neckline.
After portraying journalist Megyn Kelly in “Bombshell,” Charlize Theron stood tall in her figure-hugging black Dior custom dress. With just a subtle peplum action and a thigh-high slit, she owned the red carpet.
It may be Irish actress Caitriona Balfe’s first time attending the Oscars, but she sure fits right in with a beautiful Valentino black mermaid gown with a pink chiffon top. With a bow just above her left shoulder, it’s truly a gift to have her support “Ford v Ferrari.”
