Over the years we’ve seen iconic gowns flutter across the red carpet at the Oscars. Last night’s event showed off one of spring’s biggest trends: pastels. We saw everyone from Giuliana Rancic, Berenice Bejo and Melissa McCarthy in these soft, romantic shades.

We’ve rounded up their looks and added a few ideas on how you can incorporate the colors into your daily life.
