Oscars 2015: Fancy Bandeaus Stood Out on the Carpet

Sports Bras - Split

Sports Bras - Split

These sporty cuts were putting a casual spin on fancy Oscar gowns.

This year's  Oscar presenters Naomi Watts, Lupita Nyong'o and Jessica Chastain strutted their stuff on the Oscars red carpet with one thing in common: their sporty bras.

Naomi Watts' beaded black and silver Armani gown looked like she was wearing a glittering black bandeau that peeked through the sides and back of her dress. Jessica Chastain's midnight Givenchy gown resembled a gown paired with a black sequined sports bra underneath. Lupita Nyong'o stunned in a pearl-embellished Calvin Klein gown, which from the back looked like a fancy sports bra with beaded straps (perhaps from Agent Provocateur?) as part of her dress.

The actresses prove that while the Oscars may be black-tie, it is possible to still be glam and, dare we say, sporty.
