As an online fashion writer, Oscars night is hard work: I’m glued to my computer, watching red carpet coverage and hunting for the perfect pictures of our favorite gowns (vote here if you didn’t last night). Still, I am not complaining because it involves one of my most favorite parts of fashion: breathtaking, elegant gowns.
We connected with fashion illustrator Laura Kay of Diary Sketches and she sketched out five of our favorite looks, exclusively for us. Is your pinning finger ready or what because, um, these are gorgeous.
Rosamund Pike in Givenchy Haute Couture.
Rita Ora in custom Marchesa.
Lupita Nyong’o in Calvin Klein Collection.
Jessica Chastain in custom Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci.
