Oscars 2016:

Hollywood awards season 2016 seemed to last forever, and we've seen some terrific fashion from the Golden Globe Awards in January, to the SAGs, but tonight, the stars culminated the last major red carpet of of the year in absolute elegance. And while awards-show pros, such as Cate Blanchett and Naomi Watts pulled out all the stops and looked amazing, 2016 has really been the year of the ingenue. Saoirse Ronan, Alicia Vikander, and Brie Larson, are this year's breakout stars, and not just when it comes to their performances—but when it comes to their style too.

All three actresses have come into their own, each choosing looks that are very much on-trend, but also reflect their own individual styles.
