It looks as though the long-sleeve trend from the 2016 SAG Awards has carried over to the Oscars. After years of sheers and scantily-clad stars, red carpet dressing has taken a turn for the demure, with full coverage gowns that read fresh and chic.

Margot Robbie drew inspiration from the Oscars statuette (or so we think) in a gilded plunging Tom Ford creation that offered coverage everywhere except for her sternum. And Chrissy Teigen won best maternity style of the night with an exquisite Marchesa gown that not only clung to her every curve, but featured garnet crystal-and-bronze floral embroidery. Rooney Mara stayed true to her dark romantic aesthetic with a white lace Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci creation that exposed only her legs and a diamond central cut-out at her stomach.

Finally, nominee Charlotte Rampling was regal as she took her red carpet stroll in a long-sleeved blue-and-white Giorgio Armani Prive gown featuring geometric patterns embroidered with multicolored Swarovski crystals. Perfection!
