While Pantone’s color of 2024 is peach, Hollywood’s hottest stars opted for a different pastel hue on the 96th annual Academy Awards red carpet on Sunday evening. Shades of seafoam were all the rage, as women rocked the soft green-blue shade in droves. 

The event, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, saw fashionable stars like Emma Stone, Hailee Steinfeld and Florence Pugh all rocking the clearly trendy color. We’re taking a closer look below.

The 27-year-old Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse star truly dazzled in an Elie Saab couture gown in a frosty shade of blue. The strapless gown, courtesy of the Lebanese fashion designer’s haute couture spring-summer 2024 collection, featured an intricately beaded top and flowing sleeves that were connected to the gown’s scarf-like neckline. Steinfeld worked with stylist duo Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn for the occasion.

Pugh’s custom Del Core gown featured a corseted bodice and a floor-length skirt in a stunning silvery shade of seafoam. The top was adorned with crystals, which stylist Rebecca Corbin-Murray accented with a snake-inspired Bulgari necklace. The 28-year-old Oppenheimer actress noted in her Instagram story that the ensemble required her to position herself “slightly flat in the car to avoid creases.”
