THE countdown is on for the 86th Academy Awards and Hollywood’s elite have been hard at work in order to look their best when they step out onto the red carpet.

Some of the biggest stars on the planet will descend upon the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles – and nominees have spent hours getting made up to by their teams of hair stylists and make up artists. 

They’ve also spent weeks mulling over what to wear when they take to the stage to collect one of the coveted accolades – and most of the attention will be on the three big hitters when it comes to style: nominees Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita Nyong'o and Amy Adams.

Michele McGrath dropped in to the studio to showcase six key trends often worn by the A-list actresses.

Whether Lupita opts for colour blocking, Jennifer chooses sparkles, or Amy goes for plunging necklines, we have taken inspiration from their favourite red carpet looks and adapted them by the Irish fashionista.
