Playing Oscars 2016 Fashion Trend: See How Rooney Mara, Olivia Wilde, and More Expertly Rocked White Dresses

This year's Oscars fashion featured plenty of stars looking like they could have stepped out of their own wedding.

While dark colors are traditionally more flattering on the red carpet, stylish celebs like Lady Gaga, Priyanka Chopra, Rooney Mara and Olivia Wilde bucked the notion, standing out in stark white creations.

Let's take a closer look at their eye-catching looks.

Lady Gaga definitely takes the cake for the most unconventional style when it comes to the trend, rocking a strapless white Brandon Maxwell pantsuit. The 29-year-old singer -- who's nominated for Best Original Song for her somber ballad, "Til It Happens to You" -- balanced out the daring choice with understated makeup and glamorous old school waves.

The 33-year-old Quantico star had the most traditional look of the four, showing off her super-fit physique in a white lace Zuhair Murad gown. The strapless design perfectly hugged her curves, and a simple low ponytail let the dress shine.

The 30-year-old Carol star is also a known risk-taker when it comes to the red carpet, and Sunday night was no exception. Mara sported a button-up lace Givenchy dress, and showed some skin thanks to its diamond-shaped cutout.

A pretty hard-to-pull-off updo -- which actually worked on the edgy actress -- completed the fierce look.

When it comes to the most daring white dress, we have to give it to Olivia Wilde. The 31-year-old actress showed the most skin while still keeping on trend, confidently sporting a Valentino Haute Couture gown featuring a risky neckline.

A backless design also added to the gown's allure.
