rosamund pike red oscarsSum up the fashion of the 87th Oscars in two words? Easy! Red hot. Oh, sure, there were classic black, white, and black and white gowns (Margot Robbie -- love! Reese! Patricia Arquette!), gowns made of pearls (Lupita!), a good deal of pink (Zoe Saldana, Gwyneth, Viola Davis!). But when the stars took to the biggest red carpet of the year tonight, a jaw-dropping number of 'em rocked ravishing red gowns -- and even tuxes!  

Here, 11 of the most blazingly beautiful red looks that absolutely set the red carpet ablaze.

    The "It" Girl of the moment, Dakota Johnson, appeared ready for the Red Room and red carpetin this stunning, slinky gown from Saint-Laurent, accessorized with Forevermark Diamonds earrings and bangles. Something tells me Christian Grey would approve ...

  • Behati Prinsloo


    Supermodel Behati Prinsloo walked the red carpet with husband Adam Levine in an Armani couture gown featuring a bustier, mermaid skirt, and red and black beading. Super-sophisticated!

  • Rosamund Pike


    Gone Girl star Rosamund Pike did her best Grace Kelly in this scarlet Givenchy lace gown, designed by Riccardo Tisci, that screams old Hollywood glamour. One of the most gorgeous dresses of the night -- and her best look of awards season, by far!

    Actor David Oyelowo, who played Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in Selma, looked incredible in this dashing maroon tux by Dolce & Gabbana.

  • Solange Knowles


    Beyonce's sister completely owned this modest, flowy deep red gown by Christian Siriano.

  • Lady Gaga


    Leave it to Lady Gaga to pair classic, timeless glamour -- this custom Alaia -- with her signature avant garde, offbeat touch -- in other words, those GLOVES! In the color of the night, of course. 

  • Nicole Kidman


    In the same spirit as Gaga, Nicole Kidman hit the red carpet with a pop of scarlet. Her gold shimmering strapless gown also seemed to have flecks of red -- or perhaps be picking up the color, as well. Beautiful!

  • Ellen Goosenberg Kent


    Ellen Goosenberg Kent, who along with Dana Perry, won the Oscar for Best Documentary: Short Subject for their film Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1, rocked this brave red, midriff-baring gown.
