The results for the 2016 Oscars are just out! And, while we’re still nursing our girl-crush on our favorite male stars, the female stars also proved their mettle in bold and daring outfits. Among all the endless supply of drool-worthy gowns and breath-taking moments we witnessed, we have to admit, we were quite smitten by the two Valentino couture gowns we saw. One was worn by Jennifer Garner and the other was from fashion-pro Olivia Wilde. While Jennifer opted for a sultry black strapless number with a partial satin wrap on one side and a sequined bodice on the other, Olivia opted for a seductive off-white pleated number marked by a very revealing plunging neckline and sheer back. Given that the Oscars are considered one of the most sophisticated and conservative events in red carpets history, Olivia’s choice certainly gave fashion critics’ pen some busy time; but it was also one of the undeniable bold dresses we’ve seen on the coveted Oscars red carpet in a really long time! That the mother-of-one dressed up her sexy gown with a pearl and diamond-encrusted broad-banded choker to knock down the sexy factor by a few points did not go unnoticed!
