Pretty in pink gowns were all over the 2019 Oscars red carpet, because black is so yesterday

When it comes to the Oscars fashion, it’s not too often we get surprised at the outfits that come down the red carpet. We’re used to seeing celebrities donning black, silver, and—when they really want to make a moment—gold (to match the Oscar itself). Unlike other awards ceremonies, most stars opt for safer looks for the Oscars, which is why it’s such a delight to see a daring, playful color like pink trend on this year’s red carpet.

Several gowns dripped in various shades of pink, giving us everything from dainty rose looks to neon highlighter marker vibes. Below, 12 stars at the 2019 Oscars who dared to go pink.

Sarah Paulson


Sarah Paulson’s Barbie-pink gown features cutouts—a rare sight on the Oscars red carpet. Obsessed.

Angela Bassett


Does Angela Bassett ever look less than a total stunner? She’s killing it in this hot pink Reem Acra gown.

Kacey Musgraves


Tulle is super hot right now, and we approve. Kacey Musgraves looks like a glam version of Glinda the Good Witch in her pink tulle Giambattista Valli gown.

Gemma Chan


Our queen Gemma Chan’s dress is a neon-pink goddess in this traffic-stopping, Valentino Haute Couture number.

Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet


The couple that wears pink together, stays, AND slays together. Could Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet be any more #relationshipgoals?

Helen Mirren


We’re dying over Helen Mirren’s pink and orange sherbet gown. It’s the epitome of flowy and fun.

Maya Rudolph


We love a jaw-dropping floral moment, and Maya Rudolph just blessed us with one. She looks like she’s dressed in a Madonna Inn bedspread and we’re about to faint from the fabulousness.

Emilia Clarke


A newly brunette Emilia Clarke is a glittering, glamorous fairy in this pinkish-lilac ensemble.

Marie Kondo


Marie Kondo at the Oscars? This brings us joy. In that light pink lace dress? Even more joy.

Linda Cardellini


Another tulle moment that makes us clutch our pearls in awe.



Nora Lum, aka Awkwafina, opted for a pink sparkly pantsuit instead of a dress, and looks regal AF.

Kiki Layne


The If Beale Street Could Talk actress is gorg in her light pink gown. We love the exaggerated shoulder, a trend we saw at the Grammys this year.
