From dark winter colors to bold statement jewels, the red carpet at the Oscars was nothing short of spectacular, but one of the top contenders for top trend of the night? Stars in pale-hued beaded dresses. Naomi Watts opted for a white, beaded Calvin Klein Collection dress and Bulgari jewels, Angelina Jolie shined in a long-sleeve, beaded silver Elie Saab Couture gown with earrings by Robert Procop, and Cate Blanchett brought it in a sheer, nude Giorgio Armani gown with beaded embellishments and Chopard jewels. But it wasn’t just these ladies that opted for beautiful beading—stars including Jessica Biel, Jenna Dewan Tatum, and Maria Menounos also rocked the trend.
