Our Favorite 2018 Oscars Looks

Despite the fact that Sufjan Stevens didn't win Best Original Song and the total snub of soon-to-be-classic Lady Bird, the 2018 Academy Awards delivered on the glitz, glamour, and high fashion we've all come to expect from the biggest star-studded event of the year.

Unlike its earlier-season award shows where actors donned black gowns and enamel pins in solidarity with the #MeToo and Time's Up movement, darker hues took a backseat in favor of some serious sparkle and even our favorite color of the moment - yellow!

We've compiled a quick hits list of some of our favorite looks from last night's Oscar ceremony. Were any of your celebrities dressed to impress or did their award show gowns make you cringe?

Saoirse Ronan in Calvin Klein at the 2018 Academy Awards

Best Actress nominee Saoirse Ronan looked impeccable in this millenial pink Calvin Klein gown featuring an oversized bow at the low back and matching baby pink high heels. Simple & classic with a statement - just how we like it here at Clementines Seattle. To bring a little bit of Saoirse's look into your own wardrobe, check out the Melissa Panapana gold loafers.

Maya Rudolph at 2018 Academy Awards

Funny lady and presenter Maya Rudolph served some Marina Abromovic realness in this fire-engine red ensemble, complete with slicked-back hair and statement earrings. Her presentation with fellow comedian Tiffany Haddish begged the satirical question - "Are the Oscars too black now?" - and has left fans calling for another hosting gig for the pair. Bring Maya's look to your feet in the Coclico Luyo mule!

Emma Stone at the 2018 Academy Awards

2017 Best Actress winner Emma Stone took a few risks last night - eschewing a traditional gown for pants & a blazer and pointing out the fact that the Best Director category was still overwhelming male, describing it as "four men and Greta Gerwig." To us, Emma's outfit in shoe form is the Miista Bernadette - we love that shiny claret hue!

Best Director nominee Greta Gerwig at the 2018 Academy Awards

Speaking of Greta Gerwig, we are obsessed with her bright yellow Rodarte gown. Yellow's a hard color to pull off, even for a budding genius filmmaker, but she knocked it out of the park!

Viola Davis in Michael Kors at the 2018 Academy Awards

Is it possible to love a look too much? Viola Davis probably had the most fun look last night, pairing her pink sequined Michael Kors dress with a pink cluth and diamond hoop earrings.

Zoey Deutch in Elie Saab at the 2018 Academy Awards

To us, this look is classic Academy Awards, but that doesn't mean we love it any less. Zoey Deutch looked beautiful in this embroidered Elie Saab gown while representing Red Carpet Green Dress, which encourages stars to wear eco-conscious gowns at events like the Oscars.

BONUS ROUND: MEN

Normally we don't give mens' tuxedos much of a second glance, but so many well-dressed chaps left the boring old classic suit behind in favor on some cool colors and textures.

Nominated for Best Actor as the lead in Jordan Peele's Best Original Screenplay winner GET OUT, Daniel Kaluuya rocked this camel-colored suit jacket. Whoever said black and brown can't be worn together needs to SIT DOWN!

Timothée Chalamet at the 2018 Academy Awards

Fellow Best Actor nominee Timothée Chalamet has already made headlines this year for his transcendent performance in Best Picture-nominated CALL ME BY YOUR NAME and for donating his salary from Woody Allen's most recent feature film to Time's Up, RAINN, and the LGBT Center in New York. Also making headlines? This all-white ensemble, complete with matching bow tie. We only wish he had switched his shoes out for the Melissa Be sneaker!

Adam Rippon in Jeremy Scott at the 2018 Academy Awards

Olympic figure skater and America's newest sweetheart Adam Rippon wore a Jeremy Scott harness with his tuxedo to last night's ceremony. Honestly - does it get much more fashion than this? Bring some interesting hardware to your own outfit with shoes by Clementines favorite Kat Maconie.

Sufjan Stevens performing "Mystery of Love" from Call Me By Your Name at the 2018 Academy Awards

Folk musician Sufjan Stevens performed his nominated Best Original Song "Mystery of Love" from the Best Picture nominee CALL MY BY YOUR NAME in this pink-and-black striped jacket featured some sort of dragon or sea creature and bejeweled cuffs. Stevens is known for wearing some odd, onstage ensembles in his performances, from space suits to giant feathered wings.

Gael Garcia Bernal at the 2018 Academy Awards

Gael Garcia Bernal wore a blue tux instead of a black one - not a completely original idea, but we have a crush on him so here he is anyway.
