Next to actually taking home an Oscar, landing on a best-dressed list is definitely a top honor. As it turns out, stars wearing certain colors on the red carpet at the Academy Awards have a better chance of being crowned most fashionable than others. Online Casino took a deep dive to find out which shades and designers gave you the best odds of winning the red carpet with some very interesting results.
After analyzing the best dressed Oscar attendees from the last 20 years, they determined that you have a better chance of landing a spot on the best dressed list if you’re wearing white, metallic, or black. Remember Lupita Nyong’o in 2015? She solidified her style icon status in the white pearl Calvin Klein dress. Or when Jennifer Lawrence topped the list in a sheer black lace Dior gown last year?
On the flip side, only 1.1 percent of people who have worn a brown dress, 2.3 percent of people who have worn an orange dress, and 3.4 percent of people who have worn either a yellow or gray dress have landed on a best dressed list.
As for the designers that often make the list, Versace (8.7 percent), Armani (6.4 percent), Dior (5.8 percent), Chanel (5.2 percent), Elie Saab (5.2 percent), Valentino (4.6 percent), and Marchesa (4.0 percent) are the top seven that earn actresses a spot on the best dressed list.
And don’t forget the jewels! Nearly 20 percent of the best dressed women wore Harry Winston, 16.3 percent wore Chopard, 14 percent of people chose Forevermark, Tiffany & Co loaned baubles to 11.6 percent, and Fred Leighton pieces made the list 9.3 percent of the time. Last year, Charlize Theron wore $3.7 million worth of Harry Winston diamonds. I mean, that’s more than Paris Hilton’s “Million Dollar Dress.”
Men don’t have as much variety when it comes to getting dressed for the Oscars, and Online Casino found that most attendees wear black or blue suits, with Gucci, Burberry, and Tom Ford leading the charge for most popular.
Just think about it: Both John Legend and Ryan Gosling wore black Gucci suits in 2015 and 2016, respectively.
