If this year's Oscars stars are anything to go by, muted pastel colours are back in a big way.

On the red carpet, Mila Kunis wore an off-the-shoulder number by Zuhair Murad, Zoë Kravitz went classic and strapless in Saint Laurent, and Lily James opted for a sheer Versace gown. Meanwhile, Academy Award-winner Jessica Chastain went the lilac route in a shimmery, Disney princess-like Gucci gown.
