DID the 2017 Oscars sound the death knell for the ball gown? Vogue's best-dressed women all favoured elegant column shapes rather than the globular, whipped clouds that so often process down the Oscars red carpet like piped patisseries from a baker's bag. Meryl Streep, enjoying her record-breaking 20th nomination, worked the trousers and dress trend in exquisitely embroidered Elie Saab, while Emma Stone and Nicole Kidman struck gold in Givenchy and Armani Privé respectively. Armani, incidentally, cleaned up - Viola Davis looking particularly ravishing in hot tomato red and a big beaming smile, and Emma Roberts resorting to vintage for her Green Dress Red Carpet challenge. As for the best accessory? A tiny blue ribbon, in support of civil rights, sported by nominee Ruth Negga and supermodel Karlie Kloss. See Vogue's 10 best dressed at the Oscars 2017 here

Emma Stone in Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci

Oscar dresses don't just have to sparkle - they need to be Boomerang-friendly, too. Emma Stone took to Vogue's Instagram Stories to demonstrate the kinetic potential of her custom-made Givenchy dress.Credit Getty



Nicole Kidman in Armani Privé

A red carpet pro who rarely puts a manicured foot wrong, Kidman was forced to do a little red carpet DIY when the straps on her dress apparently began to chafe. The solution? She cut them at the base and knotted them into a halterneck. It's easy being A-list.Credit Getty



Meryl Streep in Elie Saab

Tensions between Streep and Karl Lagerfeld continue to simmer, but the record-breaking actress let her clothes do the talking when she hit the Oscars strip. The key takeaway? It takes a megastar to wear an Elie Saab outfit so ostensibly complicated (off-the-shoulder, belted, trousers, cape) while looking so relaxed.Credit Getty

Karlie Kloss in Stella McCartney

An unexpected debut of the newly political left hip didn't obstruct an otherwise sleek appearance for Kloss. Full marks for the Old Hollywood wave.Credit Getty Images



Emma Roberts in vintage Armani

Ruth Negga in Valentino

The star of Loving appropriately had an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) ribbon sewn on to her Valentino princess dress, to state her support for the non-profit organisation that aims to defend and protect individual rights and liberties.Credit Getty Images



Sofia Boutella in Chanel Couture

Boutella altered the neckline and lost the chunky waist belt when making amendments to her Chanel Couture 2017 dress - and succeeded in making a feathered, sequined floor-length affair look laid-back.Credit Getty



Naomie Harris in Calvin Klein

Look closely for the best part of Harris's red carpet triumph: mis-matched shoes. She also gave Raf Simons' Calvin Klein its red carpet debut - and looked typically polished in the process.Credit Getty
