It was the biggest night of the year for Hollywood. The Academy Awards celebrates the year’s best movies and the people behind those works, but it's also a night for stars to wear their glitziest  outfits. 

Get the look: 7 fashionable folks in Dallas share their style secrets

One Oscars red-carpet trend was white gowns, as seen on stars like Camila Alves and Mary J. Blige. But there were no shortage of pops of colors, either, like Viola Davis’s hot pink Michael Kors Collection dress and Allison Janney’s red hot Reem Acra number.

To pick the night's hottest, show-stealing looks, we consulted Forty Five Ten’s women ready to wear specialist Reed Robertson. Prior to glamming Dallas’s ladies at the downtown Dallas designer boutique, Robertson worked at Diane von Furstenberg in Highland Park Village. And we've named Robertson one of the most fashionable folks in Dallas

It's awards season, not Christmastime, that's Robertson’s favorite. And the Oscars are the pinnacle. Here are Robertson's picks for best dressed celebs at the Academy Awards.

Adam Rippon

Adam Rippon -- nope, not an actor! -- arrives at the Oscars on Sunday, March 4, 2018, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. Rippon was a bronze medalist in the Olympic Games in February 2018.

He stole America’s heart in the Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games, and figure skater Adam Rippon continued to do just that on one of the biggest fashion stages of the year. Wearing a Moschino Winter 2018 collection tux and bowtie, Rippon added flair with a black harness. Take one peek onto Robertson’s Instagram (@mrreedallen) and you’ll get the hint that he’s a fan. “I love it, and love him! He took a risk,” Robertson says of his bondage tux.

Gina Rodriguez

Robertson calls it "the perfect Oscars dress.” The Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez’s deep-V dress by Zuhair Murad Couture is not too princessy, with a belt and a slicked ponytail adding edge. As a presenter, Rodriguez’s dress gave her a grand entrance when she stepped out on the Oscars stage.

Margot Robbie

Margot Robbie, nominated for Best Actress for her performance in I, Tonya, wore a custom Chanel Haute Couture white dress designed by Karl Lagerfeld himself. “It just simply does not get better than that," Robertson says.  He especially loves the simple yet elegant shoulder detail against the polished white dress. 

“Also her hair: the simple waves. Perfection,” he says.

Zendaya

With her latest role in the musical drama The Greatest Showman, presenter Zendaya is proving she’s no longer simply the Disney girl from Shake It Up. Just take a quick glance at her red-carpet moments, especially this year’s Academy Awards in her Giambattista Valli Couture chiffon dress. Robertson calls Zendaya his favorite person on the red carpet as of late. “She's a chameleon on that carpet," he says. "She looks good in anything.”

Timothée Chalamet

“He just looks rad,” Robertson said of Timothée Chalamet, best actor nominee for Call Me by Your Name in his custom Berluti all-white suit. Chalamet doesn’t have a stylist, but to Robertson, he killed the fashion game, from the cropped pants to the black boots.

Emma Stone

Reed Robertson calls Emma Stone "the queen of the pants." Amen.

This is how it went down when Robertson first saw Emma Stone on the carpet: Stone, wearing black ankle-length pants and a red blazer with a plunge neckline and pink bow detail, all by Louis Vuitton, flashes on screen. “Done. We’re done. She wins,” he says. (But read on: We pick the actual favorite at the end.)

Stone is Louis Vuitton's newest face, and Robertson was wondering what the actress would pull out for the Oscars. He’s a major fan of the blazer. And a tip for anyone at home: “Red and hot pink is my favorite color combo,” he says.

Nicole Kidman

Can you guess what Robertson's phone background will be after Oscars night? It's Nicole Kidman, sporting an Armani Privé blue strapless gown with a sophisticated bow waist detail. “She has ruled every red carpet," he says. "This dress is the icing on the cake — or blueberry on top, if we want to stick with the blue theme.”

Lupita Nyong’o

Black Panther star and Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o stunned in a black and gold Versace chainmail dress and traditional Rwandan hair style, proving once again why she’s one of Hollywood’s best-dressed celebs. “I mean, just look at her," Robertson says. "She looks like a statue. She is the award.” 

Armie Hammer

If Reed Robertson could pick one great look that he'd model himself, it would be Armie Hammer's burgundy velvet Armani suit.

What would Robertson wear if he were at the Oscars? Though he might want to model Rippon’s harness tux, his personal pick is Armie Hammer's burgundy velvet Giorgio Armani suit. Robertson called it “so well done and tailored.”

But who’s the ultimate best dressed? 

Oh, don’t make him choose. Robertson gives it to Robbie and Kidman, both. Custom Chanel on Robbie, plus Kidman’s blue bow? They were two good, too good.
