From Jennifer Lopez's mirrored Tom Ford dress to Billy Porter's Christian Siriano tuxedo gown, the 2019 Oscars red carpet has blown all previous award shows out of the water. While the individual looks were definitely exciting, one of the overarching trends was impossible to ignore: the ladies who were pretty in pink. 

Specifically, over-40 women absolutely stunned in pink dresses at the 2019 Oscars. Angela Bassett turned heads in a bow-bedecked Reem Acra number, while Helen Mirren wowed in Schiaparelli pink gown. Sarah Paulson went for a voluminous Brandon Maxwell dress, and Lisa Bonet went with an embroidered Fendi dress. Luckily, we don't have to pick our favorites and can obsess over every single one. Scroll down to see how they wore the pink trend that dominated the 2019 Oscars red carpet.

Erin Fitzpatrick
Senior News Editor

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
