It was first time for our beautiful Aishwarya Rai at Oscars. Ash and Abhi attended the 83rd Academy Awards at Kodak Theatre. It was no surprise to see Ash in an Armani creation.
The 37-year-old actress sparkled in a bronze Giorgio Armani Prive gown with rows of amber sequins and beaded detail at the waist, while husband Abhishek Bachchan stuck to a traditional black tuxedo.
The actress teamed the shimmery gown with a Jimmy Choo clutch, vintage jewellery and smoky eyes.
Aishwarya Rai Sparkles On Red Carpet At Oscars
Like Abhishek, musician A R Rahman who walked the red carpet with wife Saira, too wore a tuxedo while his partner chose a flamboyant fusion ensemble consisting of a golden sherwani and cigarette pants.
Like Saira and Ash, the shimmer trend was followed by Gwnyeth Paltrow, who wore a gold Calvin Klein number and Halle Berry who stole the show in a nude sparkling number by Marchesa.
Hilary Swank’s glistening silver Gucci column gave way to a romantic ostrich feather skirt, while the sparkling bodice of Mandy Moore’s romantic Monique L’Hullier dress appeared to have been sprayed on.
Shimmering nude was also an age-appropriate choice for 14-year-old Hailee Steinfeld, nominated for her role in True Grit, who won a Fifties-style dress by Marchesa.
While Celine Dion, wore a full-sleeved silver column dress, Amy Adams added a pop of colour to the red carpet with a sequined navy gown by L’Wren Scott, which she teamed with green accessories.
Other than the sparkle, another major trend was the resurgence of the red carpet favourite, voluminous red gowns.
The former Miss World, who is a quite a charmer on red carpet, chose an Armani Prive splendid off-shoulder gown for the red carpet.
