Made in Italy clothing: the best spotted at the Oscars 2018 ceremony

«The night of the Oscars 2018 has arrived … Let’s discover together the best made in Italy clothing seen on the Dolby Theater’s red carpet»

Here we are! Even this year the Academy Awards ceremony, better known as the Oscar night, has arrived. Many Hollywood stars, including actors, producers and directors, gather every year to celebrate their talent and their successes, in what is now known as the most glamorous  year-round ceremony, characterized by elegant clothes, fluffy skirts, sparkling jewels and, of course, a lot of Made in Italy clothing.

Not just movies and statuettes, therefore… The Oscars are also the perfect time to show off their best outfits. Not surprisingly, the  red carpet in  front of the Dolby Theater is invaded by celebrities, journalists, photographers and curious passers-by, thus giving life to a real party before the party. Precisely for this reason, the Hollywood red carpet this year has been the focus of media attention. In fact, starting from the Golden Globes  of last January, actors and actresses had declared that they would wear only black clothes, as a sign of protest and solidarity for the victims of sexual harassment in Hollywood. For once, Hollywood has imposed a limitation on the red carpet and all the stars are committed to respecting it.

At the Oscar 2018, however, things went differently … No more total black dress code , to make it clear to the general public that Hollywood activists and all women linked to the Time’s Up movement are not limited to wearing black clothes, but are ready to take their protest outside the golden confines of Hollywood. Here, then, that the most famous red carpet in the world has been invaded by colorful evening dresses. Between silk, chiffon and tulle, embroidery and prints, sequins and glitter, here again this year the  Made in Italy clothing  were the real stars of the Oscars. Let’s find out together what were the most beautiful Italian dresses seen on the red carpet of the legendary Dolby Theater…

Alejandro González Iñárritu and Maria Eladia Hagerman in Prada

Let’s start immediately with a super- glamor couple. Director Alejandro González Iñárritu and his wife paraded Prada from head to toe on the red carpet. He opted for a classic dark gray suit with shawl collar, while the beautiful Maria Eladia chose a clean-cut red dress, embellished with embroideries and contrasting rhinestones.

Allison Williams in Armani Privè

Gary Oldman in Prada

The best actor in the Oscar 2018 never goes wrong! Elegant in his Prada suit, he brought Hollywood elegance and Italian taste to the red carpet. The black tuxedo in mohair wool had the jacket off the shawl collar, combined with a classic white shirt and a black bow tie.

Asymmetrical neckline and a long train, these are the characteristics of the  Versace Made in Italy look worn by Jennifer Garner. The blue chiffon dress was composed of a wrapping bodice (one of the distinctive signs of the Versace fashion house), embellished by a long  scarf  of the same color that highlighted the décolleté and then ended in a long train.

Sofia Carson in Giambattista Valli

Her total red look  was one of the most photographed dresses of these Oscar’s 2018.

Zendaya in Giambattista Valli

The beautiful actress and dancer enchanted everyone by wearing a chocolate-colored one-shoulder dress from the haute couture  line  by Giambattista Valli. The dress was made entirely of  chiffon  with draping along the top and a belt at the waist. To complete the look, gathered hair and showy jewels, just like a real diva.

So, once again Italian fashion has enchanted the whole world, proving to be able to combine the taste and quality of the Belpaese with the glamor  and glitz of Hollywood. Not for nothing, our designers are always among the favorites of celebrities all over the world!
