Oscars 2014 Recipe Guide: Here Are The (Imaginary) Formulas Behind Some Of The Best Looks

It wasn’t a wild night of controversial sartorial moments and yet, even in the relatively safe and ultra-chic confines of last night’s Oscars awards ceremony, we still couldn’t help but notice a few LOL-creating style parallels... Was Liza Minnelli actually inspired by Steps’ Deeper Shade of Blue video? Is Angelina really channelling Kate Middleton? Read on for some of the stars’ (completely made up) outfit inspirations.

Sienna Miller: Accessorise-All-Areas

There’s a lot going on in this one Alexander McQueen get-up and we like it. Here’s what may have been included in the star's style plan…

4 x Liz Taylor’s Cleopatra costume bangles

2 x Power Ranger accessories (bag and belt) to match Power Ranger-red maxi

1 x Boticelli hair ‘do

Lupita Nyong’o’s Disney Princess Moment

She felt pretty, oh so pretty! In a custom-made Prada gown she stole the show. But which Disney princess was she really vibing off?

3 x Sleeping Beauty – but in the blue dress only.

1 x Joan Smalls’ hairband from the Louis Vuitton show S/S’12

½ x Grecian drapery a la Game of Thrones

Pharrell Williams and Helen Lasichanh tux it up

The couple that dresses together, stays together. Is that a saying? Hmm. Well, these two certainly look like a match made in a tailoring shop. Could their moodboards have included the following?

1 x The kookiness of Manuel from Fawlty Towers

2 x Servings of Janelle Monae’s signature uniform

½ x Thom Browne short shorts

Jennifer Lawrence: Lady In Red

Clumsy as ever, charming as ever, beautiful as ever. J-Law kicked it again in another Dior number. We could help but notice the trio of inspo below…

½ x Ketchup bottle - complete with peplum. See it?

2 x Princess Diana. It’s in the hair and the choice of red frock, you know.

1 x Jessica Rabbit sassiness. Girl got a wiggle.

Angelina Jolie Middleton

In a somewhat strikingly similar gown, this comparison strikes again. It’s Ange vs. K-Middy, part two. Jolie wore Elie Saab Couture, Kate chose Jenny Packham.

Liza’s Got The Blues

Well, blue is one of the colours of the season and this Hollywood stalwart did it head to ruddy toe. In satin. It was a truly impressive matchy matchy feat, especially when one considers her blue-streaked hair, too. Here’s the formula.

1 x Manga character-inspired blue hair extension

2 x Steps’ A Deeper Shade of Blue video outfits

(Plus: comfy shoes)

See all the best looks of the night..
