oscars 2012 trend cream and white.jpg

The Oscars may be done and dusted for another year but before we can sign off from all of our red carpet coverage we simply must round-up some of the biggest fashion trends from the night. First of all, one of the big questions I am asking post-Oscars is white the new black?

White and cream-coloured gowns were a huge favourite amongst the Hollywood set at last night's Academy Awards. Gwyneth Paltrow lead the cream of the crop in a really exciting modern white dress designed by Tom Ford. Showing off that incredible body of hers, the actress really wowed by rocking up to the Oscars in a matching floor-length cape. Brilliant!

In similar white/cream designs were Rooney Mara (in Givenchy Couture) and Milla Jovovich (in Elie Saab). Rooney managed to fulfil one of Gemma's Oscar predications by opting for a pale, heavily-textured dress. While Milla chose red carpet favourite Elie Saab for her moment in the Oscars spotlight. Her one-shouldered shimmery beaded design which is especially flattering with Milla's short wavy 'do.

Another couple of A-listers, Jennifer Lopez and Cameron Diaz, also opted for a pale shade of gown for the glittering occasion. Speaking of glittering, Jennifer sparkled on the stage in a plunging figure-hugging dress featuring pleats and sequins by Zuhair Murad. Cameron stuck to what she knows best - a cool, clean creation from Gucci Premiere.

Who do you think wore this hot trend the best from last night's Oscars?
