Get a Hollywood look on a high street budget
Whilst the Oscars themselves were a more subdued, socially distanced affair, the fashion was not.
From Zendaya’s custom Valentino bright yellow gown, to Carey Mulligan’s incredible gold sequin two piece – also from Valentino, Vanessa Kirby’s pale pink corseted Gucci number, Amanda Seyfried’s dramatic red dress, or Margot Robbie’s embellished silver gown from Chanel, we’ve fallen in love with a number of looks.
We’ve picked out some of our favourites, and the best high street finds below, so you can get Oscars Academy Award glam on a budget.

Cut Outs were a key trend at The Oscars this year, with Zendaya and Vanessa Kirby both sporting the trend.
A subtle way to show some skin without feeling too exposed, it’s a trend you can easily recreate at home.
Look at cut aways under the bust, or shoulders to keep things wearable.
