Steal Their Oscar's Red Carpet Style

The Oscars' red carpet is all about stunning floor-length gowns, and this year, shimmering golds, creams and blues reigned supreme.

We caught up with Shirley Thornley, Personal Shopper at Phase Eight in Buchanan Galleries to find out her favourite looks from this year's ceremony, and to show you how to translate these with Phase Eight's more affordable dresses.

Cate Blanchett


"Cate Blanchett led the way in the style stakes with a twenties inspired blush gold dress with sparkly jewels and sequin embellishments. Featuring a sheer neckline and gently flared hem, the dramatic dress created a perfect feminine silhouette for the best actress winner. Get the look with the Nina Sequin Jewelled dress from Phase Eight for £395, and replicate Cate's shimmering style."

Lupita Nyong'o

"All eyes were on the 12 Years a Slave actress Lupita Nyong'o as she stunned in a pastel blue Prada dress. The luxurious maxi dress with a plunging v-neck and a fixed waist accentuated Lupita's stunning figure. The Samantha Full Length dress from Phase Eight, £120, features the same fairytale theme as Lupita's stunning designer dress."

Angelina Jolie & Amy Adams

"Angelina Jolie opted for a heavily embellished grey gown designed by Elie Saab, which can be replicated with Phase Eight's Kensington Full Length Gown, £395; while Amy Adams opted for an exquisite royal blue strapless peplum gown. Get the American Hustle star's look at a fraction of the cost with the Phase Eight Portland dress, £295."
