Brown Girls Killin' It: Oscars 2016 Fashion

The 88th Academy Awards (aka The Oscars) took place yesterday at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. Comedian and actor Chris Rock hosted the event; this was his second time hosting (he first hosted back in 2005).

This years Oscars received a lot of backlash for the lack of diversity in the nominations. The hashtag #OscarsSoWhite took over Social Media as people expressed their disappointment with only white actors being nominated.

While there was a lack of diversity in the nominations, there wasn't a lack of brown girls slaying on the red carpet!

Here are some of my favorite looks from last night's Oscars:

Tracey E. Edmonds looked simple but elegant in a gown by Lorena Sarbu.

Whoopi Goldberg gave us retro glam wearing a dress made by the Dames of New York. This was her first appearance at the Oscars in 25 years! She wore a dress inspired by the dress actress Bette Davis wore in All About Eve. Whoopi also wore some insanely dope accessories which made her overall look both edgy and chic.

Actress Kerry Washington absolutely killed it in a black & white Atelier Versace gown. The leather corset gave her an edgy look while the white bottom and high slit made her look feminine. She was also laced in Harry Winston jewelry.

Model and mother-to-be Chrissy Teigen looked ravishing in this Marchesa gown. The blush sheerness of the dress and burgundy embellishments really worked well together and really made Teigen glow.
