Every White-Hot Neutral Look from the 2018 Oscars (Men Too!)

Yes, we love our annual Oscars telecast for its megastars in all their gold and glitz. But this year, a new trend reared its pallid head in the super-fancy-outfits department. Call it time for less overkill and more elegance. Paler colors (including a goodly amount of bridal white) and more neutral tones wowed us. Here are our favorites.

Margot Robbie in Chanel

Inspired by ’90s supermodels, the Best Actress nominee’s stylist, Kate Young, put Robbie in a sleek white column that is way more right now than throwback.

The Mudbound star brought the elegance in a beaded white bodice punctuated by a formfitting bias-cut skirt.

Greek goddess or pearl-dusted two-time Oscar winner? Um, both.

Molly Sims in Rene Caovilla

Gray is a cool choice for blondes, but the Sports Illustrated model heated it up with a plunging neckline.

Mira Sorvino in Romona Keveža Collection

The Academy Award winner (she took home the Best Supporting Actress statuette in 1996 for Mighty Aphrodite) looked mighty fine in a sunrise-blush one-shoulder ball gown.

Lesley Manville in Anna Valentine

In Phantom Thread, Manville plays a sophisticated English woman at an amazing design house. So how perfect is it that she rocked a semi-sheer asymmetrical gown in the pale-blue equivalent of blush pink?

Timothée Chalamet in Berluti

Simmer down, Chalametniacs. Yes, the crush-worthy 22-year-old wore an all-white tuxedo to the Oscars, and traditional black tie may never be the same.
