Last night saw the 94th Annual Academy Awards back and better than ever! As one of the most highly anticipated events of the year, the awards' red carpet becomes a stage for custom gowns and designer fashion like no other - a chance for the stars to showcase the highest levels of glamour.
To round up the star studded event, we have selected some of our favourite looks, most glamorous gowns and standout red carpet moments of the night and styled them with pieces from our designer shoes and jewellery collection.
This year a number of celebs made a tailored statement and added edge to the red carpet by opting for chic and modern white shirts. From the ever iconic Zendaya to Uma Therman, the sharp and clean cut looks were a favourite of ours.
Elevate classic white shirt looks with elegant and glitzy accessories such as our opulent Athena Ivory Mother of Pearl clutch and Petite Silver Crystal Drops for a luxe and evening look. Or why not add some contemporary designer accessories such as our June Boots and Hakuro Grey Mother of Pearl and Pearl Long Drops to amplify the unique and androgynous dressing whilst remaining feminine.
Turning heads this year were Kristen Stewart and Ariana DeBose - two incredibly strong women embracing a bold look to express their stand alone style. Both Oscar nominee's opted for a non-tradition pant/short style which certainly made a statement, and one we're all for!
To compliment these ultra playful red carpet looks we'd style the two piece sets with minimal, yet striking designer shoes and jewellery. Our beautiful Hand Craved Rose Drops and Micola Noir designer black suede court shoes would be the perfect classic shoe with a twist - the grey Mother of Pearl heel, to add to the rocker-esque ensemble donned by Kristen. Whilst Ariana's incredible performance in the new West Side Story saw her win the Oscar for best supporting actress, she didn't fail to impress on the red carpet either. Her wide leg Valentino pant suit was a show stopper and our cool and modern Ivory Mother of Pearl shoes, Gigi, and Silver Crystal Long Drops would perfectly finish off the style.
Not holding back this year were actresses Maggie Gyllenhaal and Lupita Nyong'o. Both women donned dazzling gowns, which through silhouette and sparkle, made a golden impression that one would only expect to see at such an occasion.
Choosing designer accessories for striking occasion dresses such as these may seem an intimidating task, however, when it comes to the Oscar's we can't help but feel 'more is more'! Why stop the statement dressing at the gown? Our exquisite designer black court shoes, Rene, perfectly match Maggie's black and gold dress and to finish off the look, our beautiful Woven Mini Hoops with Baroque Pearls are a classic, but divine pairing. Our opulent Rose in Bloom Gold Mother of Pearl couture shoes and Hand Carved Rose Hoops are statement pieces which effortlessly compliment Lupita's divine Prada floor length dress.
Shining bright, as only the true stars do, were Nicole Kidman and Mila Kunis, who chose to embrace a more traditional form of glamour for the 2022 academy awards and we think they couldn't have looked more perfect- unless they were wearing Freya Rose accessories of course!
To complete their old Hollywood-esque looks we would always opt for classic, ultra feminine designer accessories. Mila's soft pink silk gown would be perfectly complimented by our elegant Rose Gold Long Drops and shimmering ivory suede heels Freya - a divine platform shoe featuring a romantic, floral Mother of Pearl heel. Making for a dreamy modern day Cinderella, Nicole Kidman's light blue gown would be beautifully paired with our blue satin court shoes Celina Blue and Silver Crystal Long Drops.
Dark & Dramatic
Billie Eilish and Sofia Carson made dramatic statements in exquisite black billowing ballgowns. Whenever you choosing to embrace a darker tone for an event, we feel it's an absolute most to go all out with bold accessories.
For Sofia's full and fabulous organza gown, we think it would only right to pair it with our ultimate designer accessories. Our luxe Black and Gold Crystal Long Drops and divine black shimmering suede platform heels, Rose in Bloom Noir, are a match made in event heaven! For Billie's more edgy ruffled dress, we would style the look with our Celestial Mother of Pearl Star earrings and couture collection Mineko boots for a fun, but striking ensemble.
