The 2015 Oscars, the grand finale of a marathon lineup of awards ceremonies, did not disappoint in its red carpet offerings, with this year’s leading celebrities opting for dazzling shoes for her and classic laceups for him.
Standout designers of the night included footwear heavyweights Jimmy Choo, Saint Laurent, Christian Louboutin and Stuart Weitzman. Brian Atwood and Sophia Webster shared time in the shoe spotlight as well.
Simple strapped sandals were a trend for the evening. Rosamund Pike opted for a red satin style, while “Fifty Shades of Grey” star Dakota Johnson went for a metallic take and Chrissy Teigen (John Legend’s wife) made a statement in custom-dyed Weitzmans.
For the men, patent lace-up looks dominated, with Adrien Brody and Matthew McConaughey choosing styles by Louboutin. A few suede numbers also made their way to the carpet.
A standout? “The Theory of Everything” star Eddie Redmayne. “He always manages to look so dapper,” Yahoo Style’s Joe Zee said during pre-show coverage.
